Match 6, KKR vs KXIP Highlights

Kolkata Knight Riders: C Lynn, N Rana, R Uthappa, S Narine, D Karthik* (wk), S Gill, A Russell, P Chawla, K Yadav, P Krishna, L Ferguson

Kings XI Punjab: L Rahul (wk), C Gayle, M Agarwal, S Khan, D Miller, M Singh, R Ashwin*, H Viljoen, V Chakravarthy, M Shami, A Tye.

Both captains wanted to bowl first, but it’s Ravi Ashwin who called correctly, so he’ll get the honour. He thinks it may do a bit first up and then flatten out with the dew later on. No changes for the KKR side, but plenty for KXIP, so many in fact that Ashwin can’t remember them all!

Hope everyone’s having a great week, and wherever you are in the world, welcome back to Kolkata for match 6 of this doozy of an IPL. Tonight, we’ll see the guys that have made purple look like the must have colour on a catwalk come up against the Kings XI.

Both sides got off to a winning start in their first match, and both produced inspiring turnarounds to make it happen. It’s set to be an absolute belter of a match, with plenty of spin variations on offer, not to mention some of the most powerful hitters imaginable, so powerful that they could probably fell the Empire State Building if they assumed it was a slot ball in a Powerplay! Toss 25 minutes or so away.
