KXIP vs KOL Dream11 Team Prediction | Player Stats | Dream11 IPL 2020

Kings XI Punjab will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the 24th Match of Dream11 IPL 2020 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. We will provide KXIP vs KOL Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Dream11 Tips.

Kings XI Punjab:

The chance of Kings XI qualifying is looking slim this season as they are currently at the bottom of the points table with 1 win and 5 losses and a total of 2 points.

KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have looked in good form this season and have been performing for Kings XI from the top. Except for Nicholas Pooran, no other batsmen have been able to score consistently, which has been one of the main reasons they lose matches.

In the last two matches, even their bowling has appeared to struggle a bit in controlling the flow of runs and has not regularly picked up wickets. Their main bowlers Shami and Cottrell, have gone for runs, but the young lad Ravi Bishnoi performed well in the previous match picking up 3 wickets.

Maxwell hasn’t been able to perform well even in a single match, and there are talks that Gayle will be replacing him in the future matches. If Punjab wants to qualify for playoffs, then they should win every remaining game.

  • Skipper KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal/Chris Gayle will open the inning for KXIP.
  • The middle-order will comprise of N Pooran, Mandeep Singh and Simran Singh/Sarfraz Khan.
  • Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Ravi Bishnoi will be the spin attack of the team.
  • Mohammad Shami, Arshdeep Singh, and Sheldon Cottrell are the team’s core bowling attack.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

Kolkata Knight Riders are back to winning ways as they won the last match against CSK and are currently at the 4th position on the points table with 3 wins and 2 losses and a total of 6 points.

With Rahul Tripathi opening the innings and batting brilliantly, a good opening partnership for KKR is solved this season. They have outstanding batsmen like Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, and Andre Russell in the middle order. Except for Dinesh Karthik, every other batsman looks to be in good form in the middle order.

It also appears that they have sorted out their batting order, and everyone is performing their role well. Kolkata Knight Riders bowling attack also looks strong with Pat Cummins leading the pace attack of two youngsters Shivam Mavi and Nagarkoti. 

Sunil Narine also performed well with the ball in the last match, and Varun Chakravarthy has again been picking up wickets consistently. Knight Riders seem to have one of the strongest bowling attacks in the current Dream11 IPL.

With KKR back into their rhythm, it looks difficult to beat this side and has all the potential to qualify for the playoffs and even win the title this year. 

  • Shubman Gill and Rahul Tripathi are likely to open the innings for KKR.
  • The middle-order consists of Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, and All-rounder Andre Russell.
  • Skipper Dinesh Karthik and Pat Cummins will be crucial in the lower middle order.
  • Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy will form the spin attack of the team.
  • The pace attack will be looked after by Pat Cummins, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, and Shivam Mavi.
