KKR vs KXIP: The 46th match of IPL 2020 will be played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab from 07:30 pm today in Sharjah. Earlier, when these two teams came face to face, Kolkata had won the losing game. In such a situation, Punjab will come to the ground with the intention of avenging the previous defeat in this match.
Kolkata has won a big win against Delhi Capitals in their last match. At the same time, Punjab has won in its last four matches. Both teams need to win in this match to further strengthen their hopes of qualifying in the play-offs. In such a situation, we may get to see a thorn in this match.
Mayank Agarwal, who is running in great form in this match for Punjab, can return. Mayank was not part of the team in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Mandeep Singh was included in the team in his place. At the same time, all-rounder Andre Russell can return in this match for Kolkata Knight Riders. However, Russell’s fit for captain Eoin Morgan could lead to the selection of the playing eleven.
