Team Preview

Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)

Kings XI Punjab
KL Rahul, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Chris Gayle

Kings XI Punjab has had a forgettable season so far in this tournament as they occupy the last spot in the Points Table. They have managed to register just a solitary victory in six games thus far. KXIP’s lost their previous encounter against Sunrisers Hyderabad comprehensively by 69 runs.

Even after playing six matches, KL Rahul and co. failed to play a settled XI in IPL 2020. For instance, they have tried players like the skipper himself, Nicholas Pooran and Simran Singh for the wicket-keeper’s spot. But the inclusion of Chris Gayle will add a bit depth to their side, and as a result, they will continue making changes.

On the other hand, Dinesh Karthik-led Kolkata Knight Riders comfortably sit at the fourth spot in the Points Table. With three wins in five clashes, KKR managed to secure six points. But Kolata also has plenty of issues in front of them before they lock horns against the Punjab-based franchise.

One of the biggest concerns for them to address is the batting order as most of them play with an unsettled batting position. Eoin Morgan needs to bat higher, and Rahul Tripathi’s ‘Man of the Match’ performance will give them a boost in this game.
