THE PREDICTION

Kings XI Punjab sit rock bottom of the IPL ladder having lost five of their six matches played so far and confidence within the camp is not great. They slipped to yet a heavy loss on Thursday as they fell 69 runs short of the Sunrisers total of 201/6 as both their bowling and batting is woefully out of form at present. They did reveal they were planning on bringing the Universe Boss Chris Gayle for that game but he was unavailable due to food poisoning and his condition is unknown coming into this game. The very fact they are prepared to throw him in suggests they are somewhat desperate and the 41-year-old has not played in months so he is unlikely to be the solution to their problems. They face Kolkata Knight Riders who have six points from five games and they beat Chennai Super Kings last time out so the mood in the camp is generally good despite not having hit top form yet. Their team is settled right now and that will give them a big advantage over Kings XI and they are favoured to inflict another defeat on KL Rahul’s struggling side.
