By registering four wins in their last four IPL 2020 matches, the Kings XI Punjab have kept their playoffs alive. KXIP will have to continue winning to guarantee themselves a place in the top 4, and they will battle the Kolkata Knight Riders in their next match.

The two franchises contested the IPL 2014 final, in which KKR prevailed over KXIP in a close encounter. Interestingly, the margin of victory in the last match between KKR and KXIP was also just two runs.

If KKR win against KXIP in this IPL 2020 game, they will all but secure their playoff berth. On the other hand, if KXIP win this match, the race for the top 4 will become more intense.

The Sharjah Cricket Stadium will host this IPL 2020 match, and here's a look at the pitch report and weather conditions for the reverse fixture between KKR and KXIP.
