Punjab will be high on confidence after winning the game against Hyderabad as the match was also gone courtesy of some brilliance being shown by Jordan and Bishnoi.
The Fire power of Sunil Narine helped KKR to win the match against Delhi Capitals as Narine and Rana held a wonderful partnership when the chips were down.
Punjab has got a heavy batting lineup which has the capability to score big runs against Quality Bowling Lineup also.
IPL 2020 is really turning out to be too unpredictable , In yesterday's game CSK and RR wins against RCB and MI showed evidence that any team can beat anyone on their given day . Who would have thought MI to loose after posting 195 in the first innings but Stokes and Samson had some other plans. Today is a really important game for Playoff Spots as two strong Contender Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders will take on each other at Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium . KXIP have a strong batting lineup as compared to KKR as they KL Rahul ,Chris Gayle, Nicolas Pooran an Glenn Maxwell which can tear apart any bowling lineup. Bowling which seems to be an issue in the starting phase of the tournament has now been sorted as Shami and Jordan are back in rhytm. Ravi Bishnoi and Arshdeep Singh has also impressed everyone with their skills .
Kolkata Knight Riders will also be pleased as how things turned out in their previous Match against where they comprehensively beaten Delhi capitals by 59 runs which will give them lots of Confidence . Nitish Rana along with Sunil Narine along with played an amazing inning which proved to be Match winning in the context of the game . Narine can be very dangerous in middle overs as he doesn't allows the Spinners to settle down . Other Batsman also have to step up and contribute for the team . Cummins and Ferguson forms a deadly combination which can wreck havoc . Sunil Narine also bowled well in the previous encounter . But the main hero of the game was Varun Chakravarty bagging the maiden 5'fer of IPL 2020 destroying the Capitals Lineup.
The pitch in Sharjah has become a lot slower than what we saw at the beginning of IPL 2020. The batsmen has to be aware of the challenge that the bowlers throw at them and it is no longer about just clearing the boundaries. That being said, a batsman can really cause havoc once they get set. But Still team wants to get around 180 to have a strong chance to defend the total.
We think KKR will want to bat first if it wins the toss and KXIP will want to field first if it wins the toss. That is the way that both teams have been successful in recent games.
