New Delhi. In the 45th match of IPL 2021, the teams of Kolkata Knight Riders and Punjab Kings will face each other on Friday. This match will be played at Dubai Cricket Stadium. KKR, led by Eoin Morgan, are at the fourth position in the IPL points table. KKR have won five in 11 matches. Punjab Kings are in sixth place after winning four out of 11 matches. In this match, eyes will also be on Venkatesh Iyer’s brilliant batting and Ravi Bishnoi’s excellent bowling match.
Kolkata all-rounder Venkatesh has grabbed everyone’s attention with his fearless batting in front of disciplined fast bowling. At the same time, Bishnoi’s wrist spin has troubled the notable batsmen in the last two seasons. It will be a ‘do or die’ match for KL Rahul’s Punjab team to stay in the race for the playoffs. After the defeat at the hands of Mumbai Indians, Rahul admitted that his team is not playing well under pressure and they have to improve their performance.
