In the 10th edition of the IPL, the 55th match will be played on Sunday between Kings XI Punjab and Rising Pune Supergaints. This match will be played at 4 pm in the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune.
The two teams will face each other on Sunday and the equation for Glenn Maxwell’s team is clear. With a win, they will score 16 point and they will qualify on the basis of better run-rate, so Punjab will just come out with the intention of winning this match.
In the last week of the IPL, so far only Mumbai Indians have been able to sure place it to the playoffs with 18 points. Supergaints could claim their space by defeating Delhi Daredevils on Saturday, but they lost the opportunity. Currently, RPS have 16 points in 13 matches and Net Runeret (-0.083). There are 14 points of Punjab in 13 matches, but Runarate is better (+ 0.296).
On the other hand, defeat for the supergaints will be dangerous because if Sunrise Hyderabad defeats Gujarat Lions today, then with 17 points SRH team will reach the playoffs. If they lose today, the Supergaints can reach the playoff despite losing.
