PBKS vs KKR Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI Updates, Pitch Report & Injury Updates For Match 21 – Apr 26th 2021
Punjab Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders both have had a very disappointing start to their 2021 Indian Premier League campaign, but there is one thing that separates the two. Punjab Kings, who won only one of their first four games, played brilliantly to beat defending champions Mumbai Indians in their last game.
Contrary to them, there has been no sign of a resurgence by Kolkata Knight Riders, as they failed to perform yet again in their last match, which was against Rajasthan Royals. Considering the forms of the two teams, there is no doubt that the Kings are favourites. However, Eoin Morgan & Co. will do all they can to avoid losing five games in a row.

Cricket Match Predictions
Top Picks for PBKS vs KKR Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batsmen
Mayank Agarwal has found some sort of form, as he has scored 20+ in all of his last three games. He smashed a half-century in the game against Delhi Capitals.
Chris Gayle brushed aside the failures of three consecutive games to score a very important 43 in the last match against Mumbai. His aim now will be to keep the momentum going and not let his form take a dip again.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Andre Russell came out to bat at a stage where Rajasthan were completely in control in the last game, and hence, his dismissal for 9 runs is not something that should worry you. Instead, his 54 from 22 deliveries against Chennai Super Kings makes him a must pick.
Deepak Hooda has scored some runs in this competition, but he picked up his first IPL 2021 wicket in the match against Mumbai Indians. In a possibly turning track of Ahmedabad, Hooda is likely to get a few overs.
Top Picks – Bowlers
After two games without any wicket, Mohammed Shami bowled brilliantly in the last game against Mumbai Indians. He picked up 2 wickets by conceding only 21 runs.
Varun Chakravarthy is one of the very few KKR players who have shown some kind of consistency. He has picked up at least one wicket in all of his last four games, and has not conceded 40 runs or more in any of those games.
Top Picks – Wicketkeepers
KL Rahul is a hot favourite for the orange cap this year as well, as the Punjab Kings’ skipper has already scored three half-centuries. He scored 60 runs from 52 deliveries in his last game.
