KXIP have come back to winning ways post their string of five losses with a win over Royal Challengers Bangalore (RBC). The Mohali based franchise have since then gone to defeat top two teams in the IPL 2020 – Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals. KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal will look to provide a strong start as they have been doing so far in the tournament, their batting line-up has been further strengthened with the presence of Chris Gayle. Nicholas Pooran too has been in fine touch with his explosive batting, however, Glen Maxwell’s form will be a concern.
Kolkata Knight Riders will be pumped up after their win over Delhi Capitals and would be keen to keep the winning streak going. The two-time IPL champions roared back to form and defeated Shreyas Iyers’ Capitals by 59 runs. KKR’s batting line-up changes did wonders with Nitish Rana and Sunil Narine showing their form and partnership, while Pat Cummins and spinner Varun Chakravarthy impressed with the ball.
In the last encounter between these two teams, KKR won by just two runs, so KXIP will look to avenge the previous act with a win and keep their winning streak going.
