The Kings XI Punjab meet the Kolkata Knight Riders a crucial 2020 Indian Premier League encounter in Abu Dhabi on Saturday. The Kings XI have struggled with the ball during the opening part of the season, but they have more than enough quality to challenge the Knight Riders here.

Kings XI Punjab Form


The Kings XI Punjab have a solitary win from their opening six matches in the 2020 Indian Premier League and will need a superb second half on the season to get into playoff contention.

Their last match ended in disappointment as they went down by 69 runs to the Sunrisers Hyderabad in Dubai. The Sunrisers batted first and scored 201 runs, a well above par total for the ground.

The Kings XI Punjab batsmen failed again in reply as they were bowled out for a paltry 201 runs. Nicholas Pooran batted brilliantly for his 77 runs off 37 balls but no other batsman surpassed 11 runs.

It is widely expected that will Chris Gayle start this match considering the batting struggles of the Kings XI Punjab. English fast bowler Chris Jordan could also make an appearance after the poor showing from the selected bowlers in the last match.

Kolkata Knight Riders Form


The Kolkata Knight Riders have won three of their opening five matches and are sitting within playoff contention. The promising sign for the Knight Riders will be that some of their star players have yet to find form.

In their last match the Kolkata Knight Riders batted first in Abu Dhabi against the Chennai Super Kings where they scored 167 runs. Rahul Tripathi scored 81 runs at the top of the innings to lead the way with the rest of the batsmen all struggling to get going.

While the total wasn’t great the Knight Riders bowled superbly with Pat Cummins bowling his four overs at 6.25.  The rest of the bowlers all chipped in with superb economy rates which stifled the Super Kings batsman as they fell 10 runs short of victory.

Kolkata Knight Riders News


Tom Banton must be itching to get a run in the side but the Knight Riders will have to drop an international player to accommodate him. Sunil Narine has been in poor form with the bat but his bowling gives him an edge while Eoin Morgan has found some form recently.
