KXIP vs KOL Dream11 Prediction: It’s hard to believe the way Kings XI Punjab started that they will be playing for survival only after six matches but this is what it has come down to as in the 6 matches that KXIP have been a part of they have only won one and lost five, meaning they are looking for an early exit from playoffs race. Coming to KKR now, before the tournament began, everyone was talking about the strengths of KKR, especially the trio of Morgan-Karthik-Russell. However, 5 matches down the line only Morgan has made some contribution with the bat, Russell is still hoping for his first big hit and captain Karthik is fighting to remain in the side. So, both teams are coming in this match with their fare share of problems and would want to end the night with two points alongside their names.
Indian Premier League Season 13
Kings XI Punjab vs Kolkata Knight Riders
Date – Saturday, 10 October 2020
Time: 3:30 PM (IST); 2:00 PM (Local Time)
Venue – Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi
Pitch Report: As the tournament is progressing, we are seeing the scores going down and captains opting to bat first and win the matches and expect that to happen here too. Batting first is crucial here because dew factor doesn’t come in and that makes chasing tough.
Team News KXIP: The biggest news coming from the KXIP camp is that Chris Gayle might get a game if he had recovered from his stomach problems. If Gayle is fit, he is likely to replace Glenn Maxwell who has been a Big Flop for Punjab.
Team News KKR: Kolkata did well to win the match against CSK and may go in with the same squad. They made some changes in the batting order and it brought the decent result.

Mayank Agarwal: IPL-13 may not be remembered for the way KXIP played but it will definitely be remembered for hos this man played this season. Mayank has been phenomenal this season but somehow his captain is letting him down, like in the last match where KL Rahul ran him out. Mayank has grown as a player and we expect him to be among runs today too. He can make a difference in KXIP vs KOL Dream11 Prediction
Eoin Morgan: The World Cup Winning captain has been good for KKR even though they haven’t treated him well. Morgan is a world-class player but it seems KKR is not managing to get the best out of him. He is a tremendous hitter and looks in good touch and should be given more batting time.
KL Rahul: What do we say about him!? Yes, he is scoring tons of runs but not the kind of runs his team expects from him. Rahul seems to have gone into a bubble and must get out of it by playing positive cricket. From Fantasy League point of view, he is a must-have.
Pat Cummins: Cummins was hit all around the part in his first outing but the talented Australian has come back brilliantly. Cummins bowls in the powerplay and has a very good economy-rate. Yes, he hasn’t picked many wickets but those will come too.
Nicholas Pooran: The hard-hitting West Indian was at his best in the loss against SRH where he cleared boundaries at will. This is exactly what we expect from him and Pooran will want to take more responsibility considering the horror form Maxwell is going through.
Andre Russell: Russell hasn’t contributed with the bat much but he does find a way to contribute to his team’s win and that’s exactly what he did in the win against CSK where he removed the dangerous Sam Curran. Russell is a three-dimensional player and he can win you the mega contest single-handedly on his day.
Dream11 Most Expert Picks: Affordable Players
Prabhsimran Singh (Credits 7.5): KL Rahul trusted this youngster with the gloves and also promoted him to bat at No. 3. Prabhsimran hit a couple of crunchy boundaries and looked very good while doing that. He can give you some unexpected points today.
Rahul Tripathi (Credits 8): Before the last match we told you to have Tripathi in your team and see what he did against CSK! Tripathi is a fine T20 opener and always finds a way to hit crucial boundaries especially with the field restriction in. He could be a game-changer in KXIP vs KOL Today Match Prediction.
