The Shreyas Iyer-led Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will be playing its third match of the season in a very short period. KKR has earlier, in the IPL 2022, fought battles against CSK and RCB, now they will be up against Mayank Agarwal-led Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the Wankhede Stadium.
Meanwhile, Punjab Kings (PBKS) will come up after defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in its first match. PBKS were simply outstanding with the bat. The batters were at their absolute best against the RCB bowlers.
The likes of Mayank Agarwal, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhanuka Rajpaksha, Liam Livingstone, Odean Smith and Shahrukh Khan all contributed to the team’s success against RCB. The biggest positive for the franchise would be the good form of Odean Smith and Bhanuka Rajapaksa.
However, their bowling would be an issue. The bowlers did several loose deliveries to let the opposition open their arms. Punjab Kings (PBKS) leaked a lot of runs owing to which RCB managed to score 205 runs in 20 overs.

KKR vs PBKS IPL 2022 Match 8 – Pitch Report:
The surfaces used in the Tata Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 until now have highly aided the batters. Wankhede Stadium will abide by the same and will assist the batters, however, early on there will be a bit of movement through the air. With a decent bounce off the surface, batting would eventually become easier. Another high scoring fixture is expected from the two sides. Moreover, the dew factor will play a huge role in the match.
