New Delhi: Kings XI Punjab take on Rising Pune Supergiant in their first match of the tenth edition of the Indian Premier League at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore on Saturday. Meanwhile Pune got off to the perfect start in their opening clash as they beat two-time champions Mumbai Indians by 7 wickets on Thursday.
The live broadcast of the blockbuster clash will be shown on Sony Six network while live streaming of the match can be caught on Hotstar.com.
The opening ceremony will start at 3:00 pm while the match is set to take place at 4:00 pm in Indore.
Punjab had a tournament to forget last year and this year they will look to turn it around. They have overhauled their coaching staff and captain. New captain Glenn Maxwell has a big task at hand.
Punjab's pace bowling department also looks thin on experience. It comprises Mohit Sharma, Sandeep Sharma, Varun Aaron, Anureet Singh, Matt Henry and T. Natarajan, who was bought for Rs 3 crore at the auction.
Medium pacer Darren Sammy is also there but Maxwell might find it hard to include him in most of the matches due to the rule of fielding a maximum four overseas players in the XI.
