The 24th match of IPL 2020 will be held at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, played between Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders. The match will be kicked off on 10th October (Saturday) at 16:00 (GMT+6).
The points table has begun to take some shape now with the tournament nearly half done. The sides were settled and the first playing XIs were also drafted. The games, therefore, are bound to be nothing but more interesting, such as this game between Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders. In terms of their match-winning ability, these two sides are quite evenly placed at the moment.
So far, Kolkata Knight Riders has been part of five games and three of those games have managed to win. And, thanks to their NRR, they are now at 4th place in the points table. On the other hand, their opponents in this match, Kings XI Punjab, played six games, but managed to win just one of those games. Thus, getting past Kolkata Knight Riders would not be an easy task for them in this game.
On Saturday, the weather will be clear in Abu Dhabi, with the sky being free of clouds and no possibility of rainfall. The temperature will stay around 34 degrees Celsius.
The pitch at this venue would benefit the bowlers over the batsmen, and the regular T20 run fest would not be seen here. But if there is anything to go by with the result of the previous day’s game at this venue, the pitch will benefit the chasing team a bit.
