Punjab Super Kings will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2022. Punjab got off to a blistering start against Royal Challengers Bangalore. The team led by Mayank Agarwal chased down more than 200 runs against the Faf du Plessis-led team.
KKR, on the other hand, won the first game against Chennai Super Kings but were thumped by RCB in the second contest of the season. Therefore, the upcoming game would be more important for the two-time champions considering their defeat in the last encounter.
The former India players, Irfan Pathan and Suresh Raina were asked to pick a winner between the two franchises. Both of them went with Punjab Kings.
“I am bit emotional for Punjab Kings and I would go with them,” said Irfan Pathan. “Shikhar Dhawan is playing for Punjab, so I would also support them for the contest against KKR,” said Suresh Raina.
