Today’s match is one of the most important ones in the league. Both KKR and KXIP stand at 10 points each in the IPL points table. Technically the teams are as good as being out of the tournament but with SRH still being at 12 points after 13 matches, there is a pretty good chance that either KKR or KXIP might compete with the team for a place in the playoffs.
Though it is a long shot, the teams have 2 games left and if they manage to win both of them, they would be at 14 points. SRH which has only 1 game left, if it manages to win it will reach 14 points in which case, the run rate will be taken into consideration and if SRH loses in that game too, then KKR or KXIP will have a place in the playoffs.
KKR still has all of its star players who are in fine form. The team’s dedication and thirst for victories have been observed in the previous matches. however, their performance didn’t match their enthusiasm which made them lose in 6 matches consequently. It recently stood back on its feet with a victory against Mumbai Indians. If the team can proceed with the same motivation in the upcoming matches and with a little bit of luck, a place in the playoffs might exist for it.
KXIP is another strong team that is stumbling in its play but managed to win in 5 matches and secure 10 points. The team has at its disposal some of the best players like KL Rahul, Chris Gayle, David Miller, Sam Curran, Ravichandran Ashwin, Andrew Tye, etc. With the right motivation, the team will perform at its best and given the cruciality of the upcoming matches, KXIP will fight to the death to gain a chance to enter the playoffs.
