Siraj on the money!

18:20 (IST)

Meanwhile Virender Sehwag came down hard on Maxwell for his feat in the game. The former India opener says that it is very hard for him to understand why the Punjab franchise is still backing him.

18:08 (IST)

Probable XI for RCB: Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Moeen Ali, Washington Sundar, Shivam Dube, Chris Morris, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal

17:53 (IST)

RCB will look at this year as the best chance to give their fans something they've missed for long - the trophy, and along with it, a couple of victories against CSK. Despite losing to Delhi Capitals in the previous match, RCB will take 3 wins in 5 matches, given they lost six in a row at the start of last season.

17:41 (IST)

Probable XI for CSK: Faf du Plessis, Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav/Rituraj Gaikwad, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Dwayne Bravo, Karn Sharma, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur.

17:28 (IST)

With Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis and Ambati Rayudu--top three--in top form, CSK can't afford to have the top three to lose in quick succession. Therefore, MSD might consider holding Rayudu back and keep Du Plessis at number three. Ruturaj Gaikwad can be a makeshift opener.

17:15 (IST)

CSK coach Stephen Fleming tries his best to answer these questions in the press conferences that follow every match, but the answers are best given on the field. That has not yet happened, as CSK's middle order has struggled continuously with no end in sight.

16:50 (IST)

CSK want to win this game at any and all costs.

16:32 (IST)

Some very poor batting from Kedar Jadhav made sure that CSK fans are incensed on Twitter. CSK were on course for an easy win against KKR but fate had some other ideas. Jadhav only made a bad name for himself with his ridiculous batting where he kept denying singles to the non-striker. In this case, Ravindra Jadeja.

16:21 (IST)

RCB are already calling it a 'derby day' clash.

16:10 (IST)

In battle of CSK and RCB, it is the Virat Kohli-led side that start as favourites. You usually don't pick RCB as the possible match winners but such was the year 2020. CSK looks in doldrums while Kohli and his side looks set to challenge the yellow brigade. How will the game pan out?

15:55 (IST)

Now let's focus on our second game of the day, Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Chennai Super Kings. In the 25th match of IPL 2020, Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore will be facing each other on October 10 at Dubai International Stadium, Dubai. MS Dhoni-led CSK, which have lifted the IPL trophy thrice, have had not so good season as of now. They are placed at the sixth spot on the points table with four points. ​

15:19 (IST)

Kolkata Knight Riders have won the toss and they have decided to bat first. For Kolkata Prasidh Kirshna replaces Shivam Mavi in the playing XI. Chris Jordan replaces the injured Sheldon Cottrell for KXIP


Kolkata Knight Riders (Playing XI): Rahul Tripathi, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Sunil Narine, Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik(w/c), Pat Cummins, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy

Pitch report for KXIP vs KKR

The pitches across UAE are often slow and friendly to spinners. Both KXIP and KKR will make use of their spin bowlers to make most of it, as the slow conditions tend to work in their favour. Due to the dew factor, most of the teams opt to chase on this pitch.

14:31 (IST)

Weather forecast for KXIP vs KKR

The temperature in Abu Dhabi is expected to be around 37 degrees Celsius. With wind speeds around 21 km/h and humidity likely to be in the 50s range. There are no possibilities of rain, luckily this year’s edition of the IPL hasn’t been interrupted by rain spells so far.

KXIP vs KKR, CSK vs RCB IPL 2020 Match Day Live Updates: Desperate CSK Look for a Turnaround

KXIP vs KKR, CSK vs RCB IPL 2020 Match Day Live Updates:  RCB will look at this year as the best chance to give their fans something they've missed for long - the trophy, and along with it, a couple of victories against CSK. Despite losing to Delhi Capitals in the previous match, RCB will take 3 wins in 5 matches, given they lost six in a row at the start of last season.

The pitches across UAE are often slow and friendly to spinners. Both KXIP and KKR will make use of their spin bowlers to make most of it, as the slow conditions tend to work in their favour. Due to the dew factor, most of the teams opt to chase on this pitch. The temperature in Abu Dhabi is expected to be around 37 degrees Celsius. With wind speeds around 21 km/h and humidity likely to be in the 50s range. There are no possibilities of rain, luckily this year’s edition of the IPL hasn’t been interrupted by rain spells so far.

Meanwhile, former KXIP mentor and player Virender Sehwag during a recent interview came down hard on Maxwell for his feat in the game. The former India opener says that it is very hard for him to understand why the Punjab franchise is still backing him.  KXIP had got the better of KKR beating them by 23 runs in a low-scoring encounter in Abu Dhabi – the last time these two teams met in the UAEKXIP posted 132 for 9 with Sehwag top-scoring for them with 37. KKR kept losing wickets at regular intervals and never got any partnership going in the chase. Sandeep Sharma starred with the ball for KXIP picking the wickets of Manish PandeyGambhir and Suryakumar YadavKKR were bowled out for 109.

Shubman Gill anchored a 184-run successful chase with an unbeaten 65 off 49 deliveries the last time KKR clashed with KXIP in an IPL encounter – on the 3rd of May, 2019 in Mohali. Sam Curran hammered a 24-ball 55 and with cameos from Mayank Agarwal and Nicholas Pooran, helped KXIP post a competitive 183 for 6. Chris Lynn (46 off 22 deliveries) gave KKR a flying start. The middle-order chipped in while Gill anchored the chase from the other end to take KKR through to a win by 7 wickets and 2 overs to spare.

Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab have faced each other 25 times in the Indian Premier League so far, with KKR holding a 17-8 head-to-head record over KXIP. Is Number 18 on the cards today for KKR?

In the first match of the double-header Saturday, Kings XI Punjab will cross swords with Kolkata Knight Riders. While KXIP are at the bottom of the points table, KKR is placed right in the middle.

We look at 5 players who could have the maximum impact in the match:

  1. SUNIL NARINE (Kolkata Knight Riders): Sunil Narine is the leading wicket-taker for KKR in the IPL with 125 wickets in 114 innings. He is the third most restrictive spinner in the history of the IPL with an economy rate of just 6.74! He has picked 6 four-wicket hauls and one five-wicket haul in his IPL career. Narine has, however, been completely out of form in IPL 2020, both with the bat and ball. But as they say ‘Form is Temporary, Class is Permanent’!

  1. ANDRE RUSSELL (Kolkata Knight Riders): Andre Russell has also looked out of sorts in IPL 2020. He has not yet produced any significant performance with the bat and has aggregated just 50 runs in 4 innings. Russell is the most destructive batsman in the history of the IPL with a strike rate of 184.01 - the highest in the tournament’s history! He has the record of the maximum number (15) of 200-plus strike rate innings (min. runs 30) for KKR.

  1. KL Rahul (Kings XI Punjab): The KXIP skipper started the tournament with a bang but has mellowed down into playing the role of an accumulator. He needs to go back to his destructive ways as that is when he is at his dangerous best for Kings XI. Rahul still remains the highest run-getter of IPL 2020 with 313 runs in 6 matches striking at a rate of 136.68, including one hundred and two fifties.

  1. Mayank Agarwal (Kings XI Punjab): Mayank Agarwal, like Rahul, made a big statement in the early matches for KXIP but since then has not been able to convert his starts into meaningful scores. He would be looking for a big one soon.

  1. Glenn Maxwell (Kings XI Punjab): Glenn Maxwell is having a poor tournament with the bat. He has only managed to muster 48 runs in 6 matches at a rate of 85.71. The Australian is regarded as one of the most destructive batsmen in international cricket. His overall strike rate of 156.55 is amongst the best in IPL history!

KKR have done very well in the last few matches. Barring the loss against the mighty Delhi Capitals, they have really impressed in the last four matches. Their win over CSK in the last match was quite special, the way they managed to defend their total of 167.  Meanwhile, there is not much to lose for Kings XI Punjab when they challenge Kolkata Knight Riders in Match 24 of the ongoing IPL 2020. They have already lost five out of six matches and are firmly fixed at the bottom of the leaderboard. Nothing seems to be going their way. The first two losses were very close, one in the Super Over against Delhi and the other where they lost despite putting up a total of 223. But since then, the margin of losses has only widened. In their last match, they were bowled out at 132 in the 17th over while chasing a target of 202 against SRH

Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) will take on Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in match 24 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 in Abu Dhabi on the 10th of October. KXIP are at the bottom of the points table with just one win from 6 matches. KKR have won 3 and lost 2 of their 5 matches.

We look at some key match-ups which could define the outcome of the match:

Sunil Narine (Kolkata Knight Riders) vs Glenn Maxwell (Kings XI Punjab)

This could be a fascinating battle in the middle overs. Two world-class but out of form adversaries up against one other. Sunil Narine is the leading wicket-taker for KKR in the IPL with 125 wickets in 114 innings. He is the third most restrictive spinner in the history of the IPL with an economy rate of just 6.74! But Narine is terribly out of form.

Andre Russell (Kolkata Knight Riders) vs Mohammed Shami (Kings XI Punjab)

Andre Russell is the most destructive batsman ever in the IPL with a strike rate of 184.01 which is the best in the tournament’s history. He has been out of form in this competition and thus would be raring to go and make amends.

To counter him at the death would be the best bowler for KXIP in IPL 2020, Mohammed Shami. The Indian speedster has picked 9 wickets in 6 matches at a strike rate of 15.1 and economy rate of 8.51.

KL Rahul (Kings XI Punjab) vs Pat Cummins (Kolkata Knight Riders)

KL Rahul is the leading run-getter of IPL 2020 with 313 runs in 6 matches at a strike rate of just under 137. He has already recorded one hundred and two fifties in the tournament. He would be looking for a flying start in the power-play.

But it will not be easy against the Australian pacer, Pat Cummins. Regarded as one of the best fast bowlers in the world, Cummins hasn’t had the best outing so far in this year’s IPL and he has just picked 2 wickets in 5 matches at an economy rate of 8.61. He would be looking to make an impact in the second half of the tournament.

Will Cummins be able to keep Rahul in check?

Preview: KXIP need some inspiration. They showed a lot of promise at the beginning of the tournament but have now lost 4 matches on the trot. They are at the bottom of the points table with just one win from 6 matches.

KKR have had a mixed bag so far in IPL 2020 – they have won 3 and lost 2 of their 5 matches.

Kings XI Punjab

Mayank Agarwal has had a quiet three matches after starting the tournament with a bang. He is getting starts but is not able to convert them into the big match-winning scores. KL Rahul has suddenly decided to play the role of the accumulator and anchor – visible from his approach and drop in strike rate. This is turning out to be counter-productive for KXIP for Rahul was at his best when he was destructive – as he showed against RCB with his unbeaten 132 off just 69 deliveries. Nicholas Pooran gave a glimpse of his class against SRH. Glenn Maxwell needs to fire in the middle order. He has been poor in IPL 2020 scoring just 48 runs in 6 matches at a strike rate of 85.71.

Mohammed Shami continues to lead the KXIP attack and is their leading wicket-taker with 9 wickets.

Kolkata Knight Riders

KKR need a collective effort from their top and middle order if they are to make it to the playoffs this year. Andre Russell – the most destructive batsman in IPL history, who was in devastating form in IPL 2019, has been completely out of sync in this edition. He has just scored 50 runs in 4 innings at a rate of 135.13 thus far. Skipper, Dinesh Karthik has also failed to yet produce a significant performance and has a strike rate of just 102.08 in the tournament. Another huge disappointment has been the form of Sunil Narine – he has just aggregated 44 runs in 5 innings with a highest score of 17 and strike rate of 110. Just for perspective, Pat Cummins has scored more runs in IPL 2020 than Russell, Karthik and Narine.

Narine – the bowler – has also been a patch of himself. He has just picked 3 wickets in 5 matches and also gone at 8.33 per over.
