Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) recovered from initial jitters to successfully chase down a modest 124-run target against Punjab Kings (PBKS) in 16.4 overs in Match 21 of Indian premier League (IPL 2021) at Narendra Modi Stadium, popularly known as Motera Stadium, Ahmedabad on Monday.
For Punjab, opener Mayank Agarwal top-scored with a painstaking 31 off 34 balls but Chris Jordan's 30 off 18 balls took them past 120-run mark.

Prasidh Krishna has best figures of 3 for 30 while Pat Cummins and Sunil Narine also chipped in with a couple of wickets each.

While chasing, KKR were in trouble at 17 for 3 before Rahul Tripathi (41 off 32 balls) and skipper Eoin Morgan (47 not out off 40 balls) put them on course with a 66-run fourth wicket stand.

IPL 2021, Match 21, KKR vs PBKS: Motera pitch report

Team winning toss would look to chase.

Here's what Simon Doull and Kevin Pieterson said about Motera pitch

During India vs England T20I series, first three games of that series saw teams batting first struggling to score and the chasing side won all three. But India made big scores in the next two and defended them. Shows that the toss really doesn't matter a lot. There is a lovely even covering of grass on this pitch and that suggests that batsmen would be licking their lips. Not a big ground and there should be value for runs. The captain winning the toss would want to chase," reckon Simon Doull and Kevin Pietersen.

PBKS playing 11 probables: KL Rahul (c/wk), Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Deepak Hooda, Moises Henriques, Shahrukh Khan, Jhye Richardson/Riley Meredith, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh, Ravi Bishnoi.

Hussey hints at big shake-up in KKR playing XI

The Kolkata Knight Riders' (KKR) Australian coach David Hussey hinted on Sunday that there could be a major shake-up in the playing XI after the team lost to Rajasthan Royals (RR) by six wickets in an Indian Premier League (IPL) game at the Wankhede Stadium.
 
The KKR mentor hinted that West Indian all-rounder Andre Russell could be pushed up the order in the upcoming matches while New Zealand's right-arm fast bowler Lockie Ferguson may be included in the playing XI.
 
"We just needed to get a partnership going at that (crucial) stage when Andre Russell was ready to come in next and plays at his scintillating best. May be, when he has 3 or 4 overs to go, Russell can hit say 30 or 40 runs off about 15 balls," the former Australian cricketer said, adding that, "In a perfect world, Russell can go at No 3 and make 200, I guess".
 
"But it wasn't to be tonight, and we'll look at all the strategies going forward as we take on Punjab Kings in a couple of days' time and everything's on the table," said Hussey.

Kolkata Knight Riders: Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Tim Seifert (wicketkeeper), Rahul Tripathi, Rinku Singh, Dinesh Karthik (wicketkeeper), Eoin Morgan (captain), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Varun CV, Kuldeep Yadav, Pat Cummins, Lockie Ferguson, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Shivam Mavi, Sandeep Warrier, Prasidh Krishna, Shakib Al Hasan, Sheldon Jackson, Vaibhav Arora, Karun Nair, Harbhajan Singh, Ben Cutting, Venkatesh Iyer, Pawan Negi.


Punjab Kings squad for today's match

Punjab Kings: KL Rahul (captain/wicketkeeper), Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Mandeep Singh, Prabsimran Singh, Nicholas Pooran (wicketkeeper), Sarfaraz Khan, Deepak Hooda, Murugan Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, Harpreet Brar, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh, Ishan Porel, Darshan Nalkande, Chris Jordan, Dawid Malan, Jhye Richardson, Shahrukh Khan, Riley Meredith, Moises Henriques, Jalaj Saxena, Utkarsh Singh, Fabian Allen, Saurabh Kumar.


IPL 2021, Match 21, KKR vs PBKS preview

Punjab Kings (PBKS), who are placed fifth in the points table, will take on bottom-placed Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Narendra Modi Stadium here on Monday.
 
This will be the first match in Ahmedabad after the initial 20 matches of the tournament were played in Mumbai and Chennai.
 
PBKS, led by KL Rahul, scored a surprising nine-wicket win over Mumbai Indians on Friday while KKR, who lost to Rajasthan Royals by six wickets on Saturday night in Mumbai, have only a day to recover from their defeat.
 
The biggest concern for KKR will be their top-order batting that has been failing to put up big scores.
 
KKR skipper Eoin Morgan has been failing miserably. He aggregates just 45 in five matches and averages nine in the tournament so far. He was a bit unfortunate on Saturday as he fell to a duck without facing even a single ball.
 
Morgan said after Saturday's game that KKR's batting has failed to show intent. Team head coach Brendon McCullum concurred with Morgan.
 
KKR's bowling too has a lot to worry about. Australia pacer Pat Cummins has failed to do anything of note and he could be replaced by New Zealander Lockie Ferguson in Monday's game.
 
The Punjab franchise, however, seems to have gone got back to winning ways. While their bowling has been good throughout the tournament, their batting performance has been a bit inconsistent.
 
The inclusion of leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi has helped. His spell of two for 21 in four overs helped the franchise to restrict Mumbai Indians on Friday. Mohammed Shami too bowled well, including in the death overs, returning with figures of 2/21 in his four overs.
 
The biggest positive for PBKS, however, has been the return to form of Chris Gayle and Mayank Agarwal who has begun to get starts. Gayle did well in the last game against MI. Skipper Rahul too has been among the runs.
