The 46th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 will be played between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Monday.

With six wins in 11 games, KKR are sitting at the fourth place in the points table. KXIP, on the other hand, are positioned just behind KKR at the fifth spot. The KL Rahul-led side have so far won five matches in the ongoing thirteenth season of the cash-rich league.

Pitch and weather report

From the past few games, it has been observed that Sharjah is no more the batting paradise and has a bit for the bowlers.

However, due to short boundaries, teams would still aim for a score around the 160-170 mark. Dew factor is likely to play a part as well in the contest.

The temperature will hover around 22 degree Celsius while the humidity will be approximately 62%.
