Chris Gayle batting odds & tips – Punjab vs. Kolkata IPL betting

Punjab v Kolkata

Punjab v Kolkata
The Kings XI Punjab will take on the Kolkata Knight Riders in the 44th match of the Indian Premier League in Indore on Saturday.

Going into the match, Punjab have 12 points to their name in 10 matches, whereas KKR have 10 points in 11 matches.

In their last match, Punjab suffered a demoralizing 15-run defeat against Rajasthan Royals and will be looking to put a much better show on this time around, especially with the bat.

With so much at stake, Punjab will be depending on in-form opener KL Rahul to continue leading the way for the team, especially after he played a stunning knock of 95 not out off 70 balls with the help of 11 fours and two sixes in their last match.

Apart from him, explosive opener Chris Gayle will be under the microscope as well, who after having an outstanding beginning to the campaign, had a bit of a lean patch in his last two games.

On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders suffered a 102-run hammering in their last match against Mumbai Indians on Wednesday.

In the batting department, the team will be depending on Captain Dinesh Karthik to lead from the front, as till now, he is KKR’s leading run-getter in the tournament with 321 runs in 11 matches at an average of 45.85.

In the bowling department, the team is heavily depending on the form of off-spinner Sunil Narine, who has so far claimed 13 wickets. Apart from him, only leg-spinner Piyush Chawla had a decent campaign so far with 11 wickets, which means bowling remains a serious issue for the side as they look to enter in the phase of virtual knockouts.
