After getting off the mark courtesy an all-round show to down MS Dhoni-led Rising Pune Supergiants by 6 wickets, Kings XI Punjab face an uphill task when they host in-form Kolkata Knight Riders at the PCA Stadium in Mohali on Tuesday (April 19).

The two teams have had contrasting journeys so far in the ninth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). While Punjab struggled in their first two games, especially with the bat, they bounced back strongly to win their third one comprehensively. Kolkata’s only loss in as many games a 6-wicket drubbing at the hands of Mumbai Indians, can be attributed to Rohit Sharma’s brilliance with the bat rather than them having a bad day in office.
