The 23rd match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 will be played between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah.
This game is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST (06:00 PM local time) (02:00 PM UTC). The game will be telecasted on the Star Sports Network (Available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Bengali). Also, live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar.
Rajasthan Royals (RR) played away from Sharjah this season, it seemed as if fish was taken out of water. After winning their first two games comprehensively, RR played their next three games in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
The team failed to adapt to the conditions in both these venues and thus bagged a hat-trick of losses. With just two wins from five games, they seem to be in a spot of bother at this stage.
However, the positive for them is that they will return to Sharjah to play their next game against the Delhi Capitals (DC).
Playing in conditions where they were successful earlier, RR would like to put their derailed campaign back on track. But it wouldn’t be an easy task for them against the Capitals.
The young team has been phenomenal this season with 4 wins from 5 games. Even in their last encounter, they registered a big victory against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
They would be very confident coming into this match and would like to carry on with the winning momentum.
