Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will kickstart proceedings of the second double-header weekend of the Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 when they square off at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Saturday.

The KL Rahul-led side began their campaign with a Super Over defeat, but bounced back in style, beating Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). However, since then they lost against Rajasthan Royals (RR), Mumbai Indians (MI), Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). 

Coming to KKR, they will be out to continue their winning run. While the Dinesh Karthik-led side lost their season opener against MI, they went on to register three wins in their next four games, beating SRH, RR and CSK.

Kings XI Punjab

KXIP is yet to find their best playing XI even after playing 6 game in IPL 2020. Gayle was all set to make his maiden appearance in IPL 2020 in the last match but missed out due to a stomach bug.  If recovered, he would likely to replace a misfiring Maxwell in the line-up as KXIP continue the hunt for their ideal XI. 

Probable XI: Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul (C), Nicholas Pooran (wk), Prabhsimran Singh/Sarfraz Khan, Mandeep Singh, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Arshdeep Singh/M Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, Sheldon Cottrell, Mohammad Shami 


Kolkata Knight Riders

Is there a need to tinker with winning playingXI – KKR is on a high after against CSK in the last games and is unlikely to change their XI. Kuldeep Yadav may again have to sit-out as Varun Chakravarthy, Sunil Narine did wonderfully well in the spin department. 

Probable XI:Rahul Tripathi, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, Dinesh Karthik (C, wk), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Pat Cummins, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy
