Kolkata: While they managed to sneak in a four run victory in their last encounter, Kings XI Punjab are aware that beating Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at home will be a tough proposition.
"We managed to get across the line against KKR the last time at home. But obviously they are a very good side and tough to beat at home. It's them who have got the home advantage. It's a tough road trip for us," Punjab coach Darren Lehmann said here on Thursday on the eve of their IPL game on Friday.
The Punjab franchise, fifth in the points table with four wins, take on a struggling KKR at the Eden Gardens. The home team with just two wins from seven matches is placed seventh.
