Pitch Report :
This is the best batting wicket among all the three venues which are being used for this tournament. It is a flat wicket and Sharjah is a small ground which means we can expect one more run-fest on Sunday.

Pitch is expected to be batting friendly. You can expect a score in the vicinity of 200 like last match.

Record of chasing teams: Won – 1, Lost – 4, Tied – 0

Last IPL MATCH

RR – 216/7

KXIP :

The Kings are in red-hot form at the moment as their batsmen and bowlers are wreaking havoc in IPL 2020. They defeated RCB by a huge margin of 97 runs in their last match.

KL Rahul shattered many records in the knock of 132* off 69 balls.

Well, there is an issue as far as the overseas batting is concerned with the likes of Glenn Maxwell and Nicholas Pooran not finding any sort of form.

The bowling of KXIP is looking deadly with Mohammed Shami and Sheldon Cottrell leading the charge from the front. Both of them have troubled the top-order in the couple of matches that they have played so far.

Their spin bowling is also looking great as the youngster Ravi Bishnoi and the experienced Murugan Ashwin are proving to be hard to get away. They picked up 6 wickets combined against RCB which literally broke their batting line-up

Rajasthan Royals :

Rajasthan Royals had a great start to the campaign under the new skipper Steven Smith, where they defeated Chennai Super Kings by 16 runs.

In the first match victory there were a lot of positives for Rajasthan. Sanju Samson and skipper Smith’s batting, Jofra Archer’s destructiveness with the bat at the lower-order, two quality leggies in the squad and Jos Butler will be back for this one.

it looks like that either David Miller or Tom Curran has to make way for the white-ball giant Buttler in this match.
