Pitch Report: The Sharjah wicket has all in offer for the batsmen. The batting-friendly pitch, in addition to the short boundaries, makes Sharjah a batting paradise. Batsmen clear the ropes easily due to the short boundaries and often big totals are seen here. The bowlers, whether the spinners or the pacers, have to rely on their variations in order to pick up wickets in Sharjah. The pitch in Sharjah has nothing to offer to the bowlers and bowling stock deliveries might lead to being predictive and going for big runs.
Here, the teams managed to score totals of 200+ runs at ease last year. And those runs were also seen getting chased. Hence, no total is really safe in the Sharjah pitch. However, the pitch was a little bit slow in the last match in comparison to the first three.

If they manage to win this game just like they have won against Rajasthan a few days ago. However, they will be the third team after CSK and DC to book their spot in the playoffs.
Punjab Kings played brilliantly against Kolkata Knight Riders in the last game. Moreover, they bring back SRK in the playing xi and as a result, Shah Rukh Khan won the match for PBKS. With 10 points in 12 matches, Punjab Kings will be looking to win the remaining two games.
However, if they manage to win their remaining two games, they will stay in the race for the playoffs. As it will be an interesting contest between these two teams.
