Kolkata Knight Riders host Kings XI Punjab at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah.
Both teams are in confidence and are coming off wins.
KXIP have played brilliant cricket in the last week winning all their matches and keeping their playoffs hopes alive.
Punjab’s surge in aggression have led them to the fifth spot on the IPL 2020 points table. With KL Rahul and Chris Gayle in fine form at the top of the order, KXIP look well-equipped to mount a late run for a playoff spot, for which there are quite a few teams in contention.
On the other hand, Kolkata is placed in a better position but has been a team that has not been consistent.
Kolkata Knight Riders currently occupy the coveted fourth spot.
In their previous game, KXIP were decimated by KKR.
