Both the teams have played two matches so far on this ground in this year of IPL. KKR have lost their both matches whereas KXIP managed to won one game against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Pitch and Weather Conditions
Since the last few games pitch in Sharjah isn’t as good for batting as it was at the start of the tournament couple of weeks ago. The pitch has started to help the bowlers to quite some extent. Even the teams batting second have started to win matches.
However, a comparative target can be expected. The playing conditions will be warm with the temperature around the 30 degrees Celsius mark. The humidity is likely to be in the mid-40s.
