During match 24 of IPL 2020 in Abu Dhabi, half-centuries from Shubman Gill (57 off 47) and Dinesh Karthik (58 off 29) guided Kolkata to an unlikely two-run victory over Punjab, which was cruising towards the target of 165 when openers KL Rahul (74 off 58) and Mayank Agarwal (56 off 39) were in the middle. Prasidh Krishna was the star with the ball for KKR as he took 3/29 in four overs.

During the reverse fixture in Sharjah, the fifties from Chris Gayle and Mandeep Singh helped PBKS (150/2) to a pretty comfortable eight-wicket victory over the Knight Riders (149/9) with seven balls in hand. Mohammed Shami claimed a three-wicket haul for the Kings.
