Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will have a face-off with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the 28th match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 at Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Monday.
Both the teams have played six games and won four contests so far. KKR are sitting at the third spot in the points table while RCB are just behind them at the fourth position.
Pitch and weather report
The pitch at Sharjah tends to offer a lot of runs and batsmen enjoy batting at the small ground. However, in the previous two matches, the run-flow has fallen down. So, bowlers will have their role as well.
The temperature would be around 28 degree Celsius while the humidity will be approximately 27%.
