KXIP vs KKR Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the 24th match of IPL 2020.
The 24th match of the ongoing 13th season of the Indian Premier League will be played between Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders in Abu Dhabi tomorrow.
Having lost five out of their six matches so far, Kings XI are reeling at the bottom of the points table. Desperate to get their act together, Punjab will fall in the must-win territory if they lose at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium tomorrow.
Knight Riders, on the other hand, are at the fourth position on the back of four victories in their five matches till now. Considering how KKR captain Dinesh Karthik utilized all-rounder Sunil Narine in their last match against Chennai Super Kings, it will be interesting to see where and when Narine bats and bowls tomorrow.
