KOL vs KXIP Dream11 Team Prediction | Match Preview | 46th Match | Dream11 IPL 2020

Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Kings XI Punjab in the 46th Match of Dream11 IPL 2020 at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah. We will provide KOL vs KXIP Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Dream11 Tips.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

Kolkata Knight Riders are in a tricky situation as they are currently at the 4th position on the points table with 6 wins and 5 losses and a total of 12 points.

Knight Riders are very much alive in the race for playoffs as they won the last match very comfortably by 59 runs. Their top-order woes continue as they cannot get a good opening partnership, but their middle-order batted brilliantly in the last match.

Shubman Gill and Rahul Tripathi are very talented, but they have looked out of touch and cannot score correctly from the past few matches. Nitish Rana batted brilliantly and has looked in the right touch for the 1st time this season. Sunil Narine is back into the team and played an excellent knock in the middle order.

Andre Russell was not fit, so he was rested for the last match. Eoin Morgan has also been batting decently in the middle-order, but the form of Dinesh Karthik has been little concerning these days. Cummins has played some perfect innings with the bat and has finally started picking up wickets, which has been a significant relief for KKR.

Varun Chakravarthy has been handling the team’s spin department brilliantly and has been consistent in picking up wickets. Lockie Ferguson has been a perfect addition to the playing XI making their bowling attack even more vital.

The youngsters Shivam Mavi, Nagarkoti, and Prasidh Krishna, have been doing a decent job with the ball, and on the whole, the team looks much better, and they need to keep performing the same way.

If KKR wins this match, then their chances of going to the playoffs will increase very much, but on the other side, if they lose this match, they will have to depend on the other team’s result.

  • Shubman Gill and Nitish Rana are likely to open the innings for KKR.
  • The middle-order consists of Rahul Tripathi, Dinesh Karthik and skipper Eoin Morgan.
  • Sunil Narine and Pat Cummins will be crucial in the lower middle order.
  • Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine will handle the spin attack of the team.
  • The pace attack will be Pat Cummins, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Prasidh Krishna, and Lockie Ferguson.

Kings XI Punjab:

The Kings XI have made a strong comeback in the race for playoffs by winning four consecutive matches and are currently at the 5th position on the points table with five wins and six losses and a total of 10 points.

They have excellent depth in their batting line up, which has been advantageous for them in the past few matches. KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have been scoring runs from the top for the team, but Agarwal faced an injury, and he was rested for the last match.

Gayle has been batting decently and is yet to put up a show. Nicholas Pooran has been the best thing for KXIP in the middle order as he has been scoring runs consistently in the middle order. Maxwell has looked out of form this season and has not hit a single six so far in this season.

The bowling has been looked very good in the past few matches as the senior player Shami has been picking up wickets consistently along with the youngster Arshdeep Singh who has looked very impressive this season.

The spin duo Murugan Ashwin and Ravi Bishnoi have been bowling decently in the middle overs and have also picked some crucial wickets.

This is a crucial match for KXIP as this will be the decider whether or not they will still be in the race for playoffs

  • Skipper KL Rahul and Mandeep Singh/Mayank Agarwal will open the inning for KXIP.
