DATE – 26th April, 7:30 P.M

Venue – Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad

The first fixture of the tournament to be held in the largest cricket stadium. I am expecting one hell of a match here and I am backing the Punjab Kings to take this home. I am backing the Australian duo of Jhye Richardson and Riley Meredith to pick up some wickets against the mighty KKR. Andre Russel has shown his class with the bat in the last match and we are all aware of the fact what he is capable of. This ground requires a lot of patience to play. Shubhman Gill can prove to be the game changer for the KKR if he plays for long without throwing his wicket away. This is exactly the kind of wicket that Shubman Gill needs to play his natural game on.

Pat Cummins can prove to be handy with the ball for KKR.

My prediction is that PBKS will take the 2 points home.
