With just one win from seven matches so far, Kings XI Punjab are rooted firmly at the bottom of the IPL table. In fact, the last time they tasted victory was more than three weeks ago - incidentally against the same team they will face on Thursday - when KL Rahul made the highest score by an Indian batsman to punish Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Things haven't gone according to plan since then, with Kings XI's overseas stars Glenn Maxwell and Mujeeb Ur Rahman both struggling for form. However, with Chris Gayle "fully recovered" and raring to go against his former team, Kings XI will be hoping for a change in fortunes in Sharjah's short boundaries.
The Royal Challengers, meanwhile, have gone from strength to strength since that defeat to Kings XI last month. The captain Virat Kohli and fan favourite AB de Villiers have both played themselves into form in recent matches by collecting big scores, while Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar have kept things tight with the ball. The Royal Challengers have already won five matches, and another victory on Thursday will take them that much closer to sealing a playoff spot, something they haven't done since 2016.
