IPL 2020 KKR vs KXIP Live Score and Commentary

In the 24th match of the Indian Premier League Dream11IPL 2020, two-time IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) will lock horns with Kings XI Punjab(KXIP) in today's IPL match of a double-header Saturday at Sheikh Zayed International Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi. This is the first of the two encounters which will be played today. The match will begin at 2 PM Local Time and 3:30 according to the IST. Knight Riders has done a tremendous job so far in the ongoing tournament. They had won their 3 matches from 5 and currently standing at the 4th place while KL Rahul and Chris Gayle starrer Kings XI Punjab are at the bottom-place as they manage to win just a single game in this edition of Dream11 IPL 2020. However, their big gun Chris Gayle can be available for the side for the first this season, which gives an extra advantage to them, so let's hope they tick in all departments here today against the all-mighty Knight Riders but it surely won't be an easy task for them.

Dinesh Karthik led Kolkata Knight Riders are currently at the 4th spot in the IPL Points Table while KL Rahul's Kings XI Punjab is at the bottom-place in the table with just 2 points from their 6 matches. Knight Riders have 6 points from their 5 matches while KXIP has just managed to win a single match this season of fantasy cricket league of IPL 2020. So, it seems to be interesting to see how they performed in today's double-header match at a quite big venue in Abu Dhabi.
