IPL 2020, KKR vs KXIP: Kings XI come into this match with four wins in a row.© BCCI/IPL
Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders face off in Match No. 46 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 in Sharjah even as the race to the playoffs reaches its final few stages. KXIP are placed fifth in the points table with 10 points from 11 matches while KKR are placed fourth with 12 points. With Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore all on 14 points and within one victory of qualifying for the playoffs, the race for the fourth spot is likely to heat up. The contenders are KKR, KXIP, Rajasthan Royals and SunRisers Hyderabad, with Chennai Super Kings already knocked out. With that in mind, both teams in tonight’s contest, but more so KXIP because they have won a game less than KKR, would treat the match as a virtual qualifier. (LIVE SCORECARD)
