The 45th match of the ongoing 14th season of the Indian Premier League will be played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Punjab Kings in Dubai tomorrow.

Kings, on the other hand, are at the sixth position after winning four and losing seven out of their 11 IPL 2021 matches.

KKR, who have won four out of their last five matches against PBKS, had emerged on the winning side in their most recent encounter played at the Narendra Modi Stadium earlier this year.
Chasing a paltry 124-run target, captain Eoin Morgan had won the ‘Man of the Match’ for scoring a match-winning 47* (40). Badly struggling for runs this season, Morgan, his team and their fans would be hoping for the 35-year old player to regain his lost touch on Friday.
