About the match
Regaining their form back in the last few games, KXIP has shown their full potential at last. With back to back wins, the Kings are now beginning a very steep climb for the playoff position, as they will need not only their top performance, but also a lot of luck on the side to be able to qualify for the knock out stages. Whereas, Sunrisers have shown a very mixed performance this time. With continuous ups and down in their games, they are very inconsistent as anyone can outperform one match and give a very sluggish performance on the other.
Cricdaddy IPL 2020 live score predicts KXIP will be the favorites to win this game just based on their team strength and form. The inclusion of Chris Gayle has been pivotal for them as they haven’t lost a single match from when he started playing. Christopher Gayle has given his best for Punjab this season, and nothing can be said about him after he played a major role in winning the double super over thriller for Punjab against Mumbai Indians last time. On top of that, KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal continue to scare bowlers away with their top-notch team. The only way to stop Punjab is to get quick wickets otherwise, you never know when the gayle storm will come.
Not good for high scoring batting line ups as Dubai has been one of the slowest pitches this time. A score of just above 160 has been defended many times, and as the tournament progresses the bowlers have been showing better and better performances. With the presence of grass on the pitch, the match can be controlled heavily by the spinners.
