In the sixth match of the IPL 2019, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will host Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. Both teams began their campaign in the 12th edition of the tournament on a winning note. While KKR won the contest against Sunrisers Hyderabad by six wickets, courtesy Andre Russell's blistering knock of 49 from just 19 balls, Kings XI Punjab clinched their tournament opener against Rajasthan Royals by 14 runs in a thrilling, but controversial contest.
