The Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) managed very emphatically to turn things around after a miserable start to the tournament. They have succeeded in forging into the top four with five wins in a row. Nevertheless, their work is just half-finished to date. Seven out of eight teams are still vying for a place in the top four, even though it has been more or less achieved by the Mumbai Indians (MI). To increase their odds of making it into the playoffs, KXIP will have to win this game at all costs.
Rajasthan Royals (RR) will also be just hungry for a win because for them this is a do-or-die game. The Royals have one win less than KXIP and would love to win six out of thirteen games. They are coming off a brilliant victory against the Indians of Mumbai (MI), courtesy of excellence from Ben Stokes-Sanju Samson. In this encounter, they would like to break KXIP’s winning streak.
On the day of the match, the weather in Abu Dhabi will be clear, as the sky will have no cloud cover and the temperature will be about 29 degrees Celsius.
We have seen scores in the range of 180-190 in the last 3-4 IPL 2020 matches. If the cycle continues, then we could see a thriller with high scores. At this venue, the team winning the toss would prefer to chase.
