Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

Punjab Kings are expected to win the match against Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders have won the first match and lost second this season. Punjab Kings started this year with a big win over Royal Challengers Bangalore in their first fixture. They easily chased down 206 runs target with an over remaining and that will definitely boost up their morale. The return of star pacer Kagiso Rabada makes them favorites to win this fixture against Kolkata, who are still without their key pacer Pat Cummins.
