Kolkata Knight Riders vs Kings XI Punjab IPL Match Prediction
Kings XI Punjab will look to continue their winning streak when they take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the 2020 Indian Premier League, knowing a win will put them above KKR in the league table with just two games remaining.
After a poor start, Kings XI Punjab have now won their last four in a row – beating Sunrisers Hyderabad by 12 runs. Nicholas Pooran continued his good batting form in a low-scoring game, scoring what proved to be a crucial 126/7, before Chris Jordan’s 3-17 saw Sunrisers bowled out for 114.
Kolkata Knight Riders were in dominant form last time out, meanwhile – hammering 194/6 thanks to Nitish Rana’s 81 against Delhi Capitals. Varun Chakravarthy then claimed 5-20 as they limited Delhi Capitals to 135/9 in reply. It was an excellent response to their previous game, when they posted just 84/8 against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

KKR vs KXIP Toss Prediction
Both teams were asked to bat first and won last time out. They may choose to bat first this time.
Conditions will be hot, dry and clear – as they have been throughout this tournament.
Sharjah’s flat wicket has been the best for batting – even if Mumbai’s pacemen shone in the last game there.
