Kings XI Punjab will continue their winning streak after competing against Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League of 2020, knowing a win would put them above KKR and with just two games remaining.
After a poor start, Kings XI Punjab have now won their last four matches – beating Sunrisers Hyderabad by 12 runs. Nicholas Pooran continued his fine batting form in the low-scoring game, scoring proved to be 126/7, before Chris Jordan’s 3-17 outscored the Sunrisers to 114.
Kolkata Knight Riders were out from last time, meanwhile – 194/6 thanks to Nitish Rana’s 81 against Delhi capitals. Varun Chakraborty claimed 5-20 as he in reply restricted Delhi’s capitals to 135/9. It was a great response to his previous game, when he posted just 84/8 against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
