KKR vs PBKS Dream11 Prediction: Kolkata Knight Riders are set to host struggling Punjab Kings in the 42nd match of the Indian Premier League 2024 at Eden Gardens on Friday. The hosts are flying high in the second spot in the points table and are seeking early playoff qualification. 

Shreyas Iyer-led Kolkata are walked away with a one-run win while defending 222 against Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the last game. With five wins in eight games, Kolkata are looking good to make playoff qualification this season and are clear favourites against struggling Punjab Kings.

Punjab suffered a huge blow to their bid for playoff qualification after a three-wicket loss against Gujarat Titans in the last game. With skipper Shikhar Dhawan on the sidelines due to injury, Punjab Kings slipped to ninth place in the points table with just two wins in eight games.
