Match 46, KKR vs KXIP
Toss: 7:00 pm
Match: 7:30 pm
Venue: Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah
The pitch has considerably been slow and is majorly helpful to the bowlers helping them grabbing wickets. Even the dimensions of the stadium have not been merciful to them, they have enjoyed an extra bounce. Also, the spinners have got their part avoiding batsman to concede small straight boundaries.
Despite being helpful to the bowlers, the ball has often reached the bat fairly helping the batsmen to a relatively high score. The score of 170 would be a decent one for the captains idolizing to bat first at the venue after winning the toss.
KXIP’s skipper, KL Rahul is not lesser than anyone as his run-scoring tricks are not hidden. Further players, Mayank Agarwal on top-order and Maxwell, Pooran, and Nair can be the treasures in mid-overs. Their bowlers, Neesham, especially Shami, Cotrell can be the spoiling duo for the rivals.
On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders might try swiping the order a bit as their batsman and bowler are no more in the required form. Narine, Gill, and will be the major assets to cause either downfall or lead to victory. Karthik himself will be looking to a big it. The bowlers Pat Cummins is known for his pace and they can try changing in the lower-order.
