The match will be started at 6 PM Local and 7:30 PM IST. KL Rahul and Co must need to find out some way to break their losing streak after the half-way mark of this season of Dream11 IPL 2020. It's a do or die game for them because on more lose will surely end their hope of clinching the maiden IPL title.

Virat's Royal Challengers are looking in great touch so far and they are in a comfortable position right now. So, undoubtedly, they have the upper hand for this marquee encounter against the bottom-placed Kings XI. Kings XI will surely want to find their dream playing 11 in a must-win game against in-form Virat's Royal Challengers but it won't be an easy task for them against in-form RCB.
