KKR on the other hand also possess such batsmen, such as Uthappa and Yusuf Pathan and the latter has looked great in his last two matches. His last innings of 22 ball 72 has been claimed to be the most destructive innings of the tournament by many. If Pathan would be able to deliver such an innings once again, Punjab bowlers, which lack quality would be thrashed all over the park.
KKR might well have an upper hand with the expected jam packed stadium at Eden Gardens supporting the home team. This should not deter Punjab who has had a fair share of success on the road. With the consistency that the Bailey led Punjab team has shown, it would not be fair for the team to fail in such a crucial hurdle, while KKR supporters would be uttering the same owing to their form in the latter half of the competoition.
Irrespective of who loses the game, they still have a chance to progress in the finals. The losing team would get one more chance to bite the cherry, as they would play the winner of the eliminator between Chennai and Mumbai tomorrow.
