Going by the recent results in the Indian Premier League, we are certainly in for an enthralling finish to the group stage. It’s going to be a tough spot for the top two positions at the ladder and the same is going to be the case for the fourth playoff spot. The teams playing in the bottom half of the table are all in more or less in a do-or-die situation.
Kings XI Punjab exhibited a spectacular turnaround by winning three matches in a row and would want to continue to build on their form with a win in their upcoming match as well. They have a difficult task at their hands as they take on Sunrisers Hyderabad, who are coming fresh off a terrific win over the Royals from Rajasthan. Both sides are desperate for the two points and are expected to come out all guns blazing in this upcoming match.
Date: 24th October 2020
Venue: Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai, UAE
Time: 7:30 PM (IST)
Pitch and Conditions:
In the last four matches at this venue, the teams batting second have won three games while one match finished in a tie and thereafter went into the Super Over. With the dew coming in, batting has surely been much easier in the second half of the game.
Compared to the conditions at the start of the tournament, they are much better now. The temperatures have come down bringing a sense of respite for the players. It will be around 30 degrees Celsius at the start of this game.
In the last five games at the venue the side that has bowled first has gone on to win four games. There is slowness on the surface as we have seen in the last few rounds of games here and it becomes difficult for a side to judge a par score. Hence, the side winning the toss would be looking to bowl first.
