The match will take place at Sharjah and it is needless to tell that batsmen enjoy their time at the venue as the ground is small. This would also help the hard-hitter Gayle to send the ball out of the park.
The batting performance of the West Indian batsman always amazes the crowd and the fans are keen to witness the batsman at the crease.
He was the second-highest run-scorer for the KXIP last season and scored four fifties in the tournament.

KXIP have had a disappointing first half of the tournament as they managed to register only one win in seven games and they sit at the bottom of the table. They will have to perform well to secure a spot in the play-offs.
RCB would be the tough opponent for KXIP as they defeated KKR by a margin of 82 runs and have gained momentum in the recent matches. AB de Villiers played a massive innings of 73 runs off 33 deliveries, while captain Virat Kohli and Aaron Finch came up with their contributions.
