We are exactly one hour away from toss

Pitch Conditions: Sharjah Cricket Stadium pitch has slowed down considerably, with the new-ball bowlers ruling the roost of late. When the tournament started, Sharjah strip offered plenty of runs and support for the batsmen who enjoyed batting on this wicket but it is not the same anymore.

The likes of Siraj and Boult have enjoyed conditions due to the early swing on offer, which should be the case in this game as well. Interestingly, bowlers will hold the key to both sides’ fortunes, the batsmen should be able to play their natural game once they get used to the pace of the surface. However, the dimensions of the ground favour the batter as the straight boundaries are very small. With the likes of Gayle, Rahul, Pooran, Morgan and Russell in action – we can expect a run-fest on Monday. Both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss, with 170 being a competitive total at this venue.

5.41pm
Can Varun Chakravarthy weave his magic tonight too?

Varun Chakravarthy was on a roll with the ball against DC and following his match-winning effort of 5/20, became the first bowler to take a five-wicket haul this season. The mystery spinner will be eager to continue his good form.

12:00 : IPL 2020 KKR vs KXIP : Big News it is unlikely that Andre Russell will play this game for KKR. Russell is yet to recover from his injury.

Good News for KXIP – Mayank Agarwal has recoverd from his niggle and should in the XI for this crunch tie against KXIP.

11:00 : IPL 2020 KKR vs KXIP : How today’s match can impact the playoff fate for others ?
 
Kolkata Knight Riders : KKR is leading the race at this stage by the virtue of 12 points in 11 matches. If KKR wins today, they will be in driving seat to finalize playoff spot. If they lose, KXIP will overtake them. 
 
KingsXI Punjab : KXIP is on a hot winning streak of 4 matches @ 10 points currently from 11 matches. If KXIP wins, they will move to 4th in the points table and can drive their destiny on their own. If they lose, it will be difficult for them to qualify. KXIP next two games are against RR and CSK but even if they win both – they would still struggle to qualify in scenario of defeat to KKR today.
Rajasthan Royals – If the Kings XI beat the Knight Riders and then both the teams lose their last two games, Rajasthan Royals can qualify without net run rate coming into play as they will reach 14 points, whereas the Kings XI and the Knight Riders will have 12.

If the Kings XI or the Sunrisers manage to reach 14, the Royals then will only have a very slim chance to make the final four on net run rate, as theirs is a poor -0.505. The only team’s NRR they can possibly match is the Knight Riders’ (-0.476), so they will hope to compete only with the Knight Riders for that fourth spot. So Royals would want a KXIP win today. 

Sunrisers Hyderabad – The most precariously placed team. SRH needs win in all 3 matches against DC, RCB and MI and still would have to be dependent on other results. They would also want that KXIP wins today against KKR. 
 
Chennai Super Kings : They have already dropped out of the IPL 2020 Playoff Race
Dream11 IPL 2020 KKR vs KXIP : Race to bag 4th playoff spot

Kings XI Punjab are on a roll with four consecutive wins. Kolkata Knight Riders have bagged a big win over Delhi Capitals at the right time to steady their shaky campaign. With three games to go, both KKR and KXIP now cannot afford any slipups as they chase a spot in the top four.

Three of four KXIP’s win have come in Dubai but they convincingly trounced Royal Challengers Bangalore the last time they played in Sharjah. KKR, on the other hand, haven’t quite cracked the Sharjah code with two big losses – against DC and RCB. As KL Rahul’s men gear up to level with KKR, the contest could well have a final say in which team takes the fourth spot in the table once the league stage gets over.
