Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) will compete with Rajasthan Royals (RR) in Match 50 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Friday (October 30).
The last time these two teams squared off this season, it was a run-fest in Sharjah. While KXIP scored 223/2 after Mayank Agarwal smashed his maiden IPL hundred, RR crossed the finish line after Sanu Samson’s half-century and a Rahul Tewatia show.
Steve Smith and Co. would now be looking to have an encore of that performance while KXIP will be eager to avenge that loss.
The pitch on offer in Abu Dhabi has been really good enough for batting lately and the chasing teams are doing better. The average 1st innings score at this venue is 161 runs.
