In a decisive battle to conquer the 4th spot in the IPL Points Table, a formidable Kings XI Punjab will take on a reviving Kolkata Knight Riders on Monday at Sharjah. Coming from straight 4 consecutive wins, KL Rahul's men who are oozing confidence will look to overthrow Kolkata that is currently placed on the 4th spot. After their 59-run victory over Delhi Capitals, the resurgent Kolkata Knight Riders just like their last meet will make sure to overpower Punjab once more. But KKR's inconsistency might come to haunt them again if Eoin Morgan does not address his side's batting issues. While the match between both teams is expected to be nailbiting, the side that secures the match will definitely strengthen its position to qualify for the playoffs this season. Out of the 26 matches that both the teams have played so far in IPL's history, KKR has defeated Punjab in 18 of them.
