KXIP vs KKR IPL 2020 Score: KKR would like to consolidate their position in top half of points table.© BCCI/IPL
Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Dinesh Karthik won the toss and opted to bat against Kings XI Punjab in Match 24 of IPL 2020 in Abu Dhabi on Saturday. Both sides made one change to their side. Kings XI Punjab included Chris Jordan in place of injured Sheldon Cottrell, while KKR also made one change to their bowling department with Shivam Mavi given rest to make way for Prasidh Krishna. As far as Kings XI Punjab are concerned, their matches, and losses, are coming in way too thick and fast. For a franchise that began with quite a bang, KXIP have simply evaporated from the IPL 2020 Points Table, with four straight losses. Their rivals, Kolkata Knight Riders, who were not particularly happy themselves, managed to get past an insipid batting performance from Chennai Super Kings and find themselves in the top half of the table. Another loss for KXIP will in all likelihood will be relegated to the role of spoilers for the rest. They need a miraculous comeback, but with their bowling, that looks a far cry. (LIVE SCORECARD)
