Fans can watch the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) vs. Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) match live online as the teams face off for the third time this year —- this time with the 2014 Pepsi IPL final on the line.
The teams face off Sunday at 8 pm IST from M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
Both KXIP and KKR took different routes to the IPL final. KXIP plowed through the league this year, registering 11 wins with powerful hitting. The team rode Manan Vohra, Virender Sehwag, and Glenn Maxwell to tear up opposing team’s bowlers. The team led the league with a scoring rate of 9.04.
But for as great as KXIP has been this year, KKR was their weakness and one of only two teams to defeat them. When the two met in the playoffs last week, it was KKR again coming out on top.
KXIP reached the final after defeating the Chennai Super Kings, setting up a much anticipated rematch with KXIP.
Fans who watch the Kolkata Knight Riders vs. Kings XI Punjab match live online may see a KXIP team running out of gas. Glenn Maxwell has struggled mightily in the second half of the season. He has scored just 104 runs in his last seven innings after scoring 435 in his first seven.
