Like Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore, Knight Riders have been poor travelers this season but unlike the other two teams, they haven't capitalised on the home advantage. It's made for a dismal situation at a crucial stage in the points table and they go into the match against Pune Warriors with four wins in 12 games.

They need to win all their matches and then pray for some mutualism within the league, that will allow them to move to the fourth spot.

Two of their last four matches are against Warriors, a team that is trying to beat the ignominy of finishing among the last two spots in the table for the third successive year. With a regular shuffle in leadership, lack of good bowling at the death and inconsistency in the field, they've drifted to the bottom of the table and out of the competition.

PunterPolls Prediction

Warriors v Riders, teams who used to find an innovative style to loose each games in the seasons are playing against each other to themselves better in the race. Pune Warriors have lost many games from where they can win easily on the other hand Kolkata Knight Riders have lost most of the matches rather without doing much fight. If we look at the stats PWI have better stats in comparison to KKR but only thing which goes against Pune is their batting. Their openers are doing good but somehow their middle order is crappy and the biggest hole in their ship is their captaincy.

Kolkata Kight Riders does have potential but they are not playing upto the mark. Their batting is bot at all consistent and their bowlers head is dropping now.

Our experts are very much confuse about picking any one team between the two but finally have decided to go with Kolkata Knight Riders as they have better bowlers in comparison to PWI and an experience captain.
