The Eden Gardens wicket has always favored batsmen. Going by the previous records, batsmen and bowlers have had an equal share with batsmen emerging as favorites at various occasions when it comes to performances. There were also instances where bowlers tamed their opponents too. All eyes would be on Chris Gayle since it is a happy hunting ground for the Jamaican since he has been at his universal best at the Eden Gardens. Not to forget the other Caribbean heroes - Andre Russell and Chris Gayle who could make an interesting couple to watch out the game for.
Even if Carlos Brathwaite does not find a place in the playing eleven, Russell could well outplay any opposition on his day. Already Andre Russell is in Red Hot form with an aggressive knock towards the end of the innings. With Shubman Gill and Robin Uthappa also coming into the groove, KKR looks to be a settled side with Nitish Rana firing at the top of the order. If Chris Lynn fires at the top much like his stint with his BBL franchise, it would prove to be a great strength for KKR.

On the other hand, there is a long due from the Kings XI opening batsman Lokesh Rahul. Alongside Gayle, if Rahul clicks at the top, they would also turn out to be a dominant force in the much-awaited clash. Kings XI Punjab also has a variety in their bowling lineup headed by the lead spinner Ravi Ashwin. Alongside Ashwin, Afghan teenage sensation Mujeeb Ur Rahman would form a formidable spinning web against Dinesh Karthik-led KKR. The Indian paceman Mohammed Shami would lead the pace battery lineup of the Kings XI Punjab. As in the previous encounter, Shami could well be supported by Ankit Rajpoot.
In the KKR lineup, the bowling department is bolstered in the form of Kiwi paceman Lockie Ferguson and rookie Indian Prasidh Krishna. In the spinning department, Sunil Narine, Piyush Chawla, and Kuldeep Yadav would be present as usual supported by the part-timer Nitish Rana. The Universal Boss could play a big role in this encounter, and the clash between the Knights and the Kings from Punjab could well end up to be an exciting encounter.
It would be an interesting battle backed by balanced players on both sides. According to Horary Astrological predictions, Kolkata Knight Riders both have the upper hand in this game, and they could outplay Kings XI Punjab in this contest at the Eden Gardens. The Ascendant lord along with the star lord in which it is placed seems to favor the Knights. Since we have considered Kolkata Knight Riders as Ascendant, the 3rd lord and 11th lord based on the Ascendant sign and their star lords indicate chances favoring Kolkata Knight Riders to have the edge over the Kings XI Punjab.
