The match will start as usual 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT), 18:00 LOCAL. The Mohali based franchise will lock horns with Rajasthan Royals. Both the teams are still fighting for Playoffs and need to win every game here onwards to reach Playoffs.
The KL Rahul led KXIP is on fire in all departments. Their initial games were not up to the mark but they have capitalised on their weaknesses and worked on it. Right Now they are at the peak of their performance. With the inclusion of Chris Gayle to the side they have flourished. Chris Gayle is featured in 5 matches till now and KXIP has won all of them. Chris Jordan on the other hand is providing depth in the bowling unit along with Arshdeep Singh and Mohd. Shami. Opening for KXIP is a big advantage. The openers KL Rahul and Mayank Aggarwal/Mandeep Singh are in good form. They have made sure that they put a good total on the board.
KXIP is on winning streak from last five games. They have made a huge jump from the bottom of the table to the top 4. On the other hand, RR will also be High in confidence as they defeated defending Champians Mumbai Indians by 8 wickets in their last encounter. Rajasthan Royals are at 7th spot, having won 5 matches out of 12. They definitely need to win to keep their Playoffs campaign alive. Some good signs from their players, Sanju Samson back in form scoring half-century in last game. Ben Stokes scored a brilliant century and took his side to victory. Their bowling unit is performing decently in past few games.
Pitch in Abu Dhabi supports a little bit more to the batsman. Ball come onto bat nicely, bowlers have struggled to pick wickets in powerplay and death. Runs are scored all over the park in the powerplays and in death. Chasing the total will be a wise option as the stats say in recent past.

Played – 20, KXIP – 09 and RR – 11
