States the covering off grass is beautiful and there are going to be runs on offer so the bowlers will have to bowl well.
Hello and welcome to game number 21 of the league. It is a brand new venue as the league plays its first game in the biggest cricket stadium in the world. Kl Rahul’s Punjab are high on confidence as they come to Ahmedabad with a convincing win over Mumbai. Punjab will look to carry that momentum and start their winning run. Kolkata, on the other hand, are on a freefall. Morgan’s side have struggled so far this season and have lost all of their last 4 contests. The 2-time champions desperately need to end that barren run if they are to stay in contention this season. A new venue and a highly exciting contest awaits us. Can Morgan inspire his side or will Rahul’s Punjab continue their march to the right direction? Stay tuned for toss and further updates.
