So far, Group B hasn't had a runaway leader, unlike Kolkata Knight Riders, who have already qualified for the semi-finals from Group A with three wins in a row. Kings XI Punjab, however, could match that on their home ground if they beat a vulnerable-looking Northern Knights side.
From Knights' perspective, Kings XI Punjab are perhaps the ideal bowling attack to go up against after such a dispiriting batting failure. While Anureet Singh and Parvinder Awana were impressive in restricting Hurricanes to 144, the same pair of seamers went for plenty against Barbados Tridents.
Northern Districts have won the toss and elected to bowl first. Batting is the strength for both the teams and Kings XI is short of bowlers as well. This reason is enough for our experts to support the team. So, we are with Northern in this match.
