In the 2020 Indian Premier League ( IPL), Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) made a spectacular return, winning five matches in a row after just a lone victory from their first seven matches. However, despite their impressive streak, as far as making the playoffs is concerned, KL Rahul and Co are in a bit of a void.
Next, on Sunday, November 1, they will face Chennai Super Kings (CSK). It’s a must-win game at Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Stadium for them. They stand a chance of being disqualified if they lose their last league game.
A result will throw KXIP out of the event in Sunday’s second game between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Rajasthan Royals (RR). After winning their last two games, the Super Kings will be looking to end their campaign on a high.
The weather will be perfect for a cricket match in Abu Dhabi on Sunday, as the skies are predicted to be bright, so there will be zero chance of rainfall interrupting the game. It is estimated that the temperature will be around 30 degrees Celsius.
There has been a lot of wear and tear on the pitch at Sheikh Zayed Stadium so that batting would be difficult here. The bowlers will enjoy their share of support, but in the second innings of the match, they will have to put in a little extra effort.
