Kolkata Knight Riders Preview

Venkatesh Iyer

The Kolkata Knight Riders come into this match on the back of a formidable performance, posting a daunting total of 222/6 in their previous outing against Royal Challengers Bengaluru. While the top order saw a rare failure from Sunil Narine, explosive knocks from Phil Salt and skipper Shreyas Iyer propelled KKR to a commanding position. However, concerns linger over Mitchell Starc’s economy rate, highlighting the challenges even seasoned bowlers face in this high-scoring season.

Pitch And Weather Conditions:

Eden Gardens, Kolkata

At the Eden Gardens this season, batsmen have reveled in a run-scoring extravaganza, with the average first innings total hovering just below the impressive mark of 204. The pitches have been a paradise for fluent ball-strikers, facilitating effortless strokeplay and exhilarating contests. Adding to the batters’ delight, the short boundaries on one side of the ground have provided an additional advantage, allowing them to capitalize on scoring opportunities.

However, as the scorching heat wave continues to grip the city, there might be a subtle shift in pitch conditions. The relentless heat could contribute to the tracks drying up, potentially altering the dynamics of the game. Despite this change, the expectation remains high for another high-scoring affair at the iconic Eden Gardens, where batsmen are poised to continue their dominance, albeit with a slight adjustment to the playing conditions.
