Kings XI Punjab snatched the victory in the last game from Sunrisers Hyderabad. Kolkata’s run hasn’t been smooth, they have worked hard for the 4th spot.

The Scout Says:

KL Rahul has the Orange Cap with him since the season began. He has been inspirational with his captaincy as well. On the other hand, Gayle is putting big hits on the scoreboard consistently. Hence, we decided to take both of them for tonight’s match. Eoin Morgan and Nitish Rana are the players who can send the ball out of the stadium from KKR’s side.

Lockie Ferguson’s IPL 2020 started with a blast and we hope he will continue his goof form tonight as well. Arshdeep Singh and Mohammed Shami have been consistently providing support from both ends of the pitch. Since Sharjah is a scoring ground – with very small dimensions – we hope a score of 190 can be defended.
