Favorite team: KKR with 66p
Teams in contention don't afford to lose as they don't have much luxury to relax for couple of games and be on the top later. Both the teams have their own demons. Knight Riders are traveling to Mohali, after getting unlucky on the home turf twice, to wipe the tag of under performers off. Kings XI, the most consistent team as far as the worst opening partnership and aggregate runs of highest run-scorer in the team are concerned, on the other hand wishes to reassure fans that their last win at Eden was not a fluke.
For firepower and form, no team is worse than other. One team has more recognized names, while other is on the winning streak. In IPL, change is the only thing which is constant. The team in the form has more to fear, as they will fall like a peck of cards when breached. And the team with recognized names is already a bit demoralized due to the recent outcomes.
So this game will be won by that team which has more confidence in themselves and who thinks that they can lift the cup, be it this season or any season. I am going with Knight Riders on this. As I think they are slightly diverse and better in the bowling department than their rivals.
