IPL 2024 KKR vs PBKS Match 42 Prediction: Who Will Win Today’s Match Between Kolkata Knight Riders vs Punjab Kings

In the forthcoming clash between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) at the iconic Eden Gardens, KKR enters with a strong foothold, having secured victories in five out of their seven matches in the IPL 2024 season. Led by Shreyas Iyer, KKR’s recent one-run triumph over Royal Challengers Bengaluru adds momentum to their campaign.

KKR have been dominating with both the bat and ball, and they will also have the home advantage. PBKS, on the other hand, have been one of the weakest sides of IPL 2024, and to get the better of the Shreyas Iyer led side will be a big task for them.
