Match Details (KXIP vs RCB)
KXIP vs BLR, 6th match, Dream11 IPL 2020.
Venue: Dubai International Stadium, Dubai, UAE.
Date: 24th September 2020
Time: 7:30 PM (IST)
Average 1st Innings Score: 160 (From 2 matches played at this venue so far in this season)
Average 2nd Innings Score: 155 (From 2 matches played at this venue so far in this season)
The pitch here is considered neutral, but the bowlers have a little advantage here as the boundaries are huge. The team winning the toss would want to bowl first because of the dew factor in the 2nd innings.
But the results so far have been favorable for the team batting first because the pitch tends to slow down in the 2nd innings, and it becomes difficult to time the ball.
Anything over 155 in the 1st innings can be considered to be a fighting total.
There is no chance of rain on the match day, and the temperature is expected to be in mid-thirties.
