Kings XI Punjab is on an absolute roll with five wins on the trot. It has moved up the fourth position and is in a great position to push for a playoff spot. It is going to be taking on the Rajasthan Royals, a team that chased down 195 against the Mumbai Indians with ease in its previous match. Both KXIP and RR have been very inconsistent this season and this is why they are scrambling towards the end of the group stage. That inconsistency is also why we could have some tremendous betting opportunities to take advantage of.
Punjab will remember what the Royals and Rahul Tewatia did to them last time around, though it was in Sharjah. Going into the game, RR will be high on confidence after beating the Mumbai Indians (MI) at the same venue. A cracker of a game can be expected.
Date: 30th October 2020
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, UAE
Time: 7:30 PM (IST)
Pitch and Conditions:
The pitch in Abu Dhabi has been an excellent one for batting and bowlers have indeed found it tough. The batters have made hay in the powerplay and in the death overs, they haven’t lost a whole lot of wickets either. Chasing should be the way forward on the strip. The playing conditions will be warm with the temperature around the 29 degrees Celsius mark. The humidity will be in the 60s.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to chase. Both KXIP and RR have done very well chasing recently and so they will want to continue doing the same if given the choice. The conditions also seem to suggest that the chasing team has an advantage.
