The last time when Kings and Knight Riders had locked horns against each other was an IPL 2020 league match at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Chasing a below par 150-run target, Punjab had registered a comprehensive victory as Mandeep Singh and Chris Gayle had scored individual half-centuries in a match-winning 100-run partnership for the second wicket.
Having said that, KKR should take confidence not just from their overall record against PBKS but also from the fact that they have won four out of their last five matches against them.
