Read this article for IPL match 52 - KXIP vs KKR game analysis, KXIP vs KKR Dream 11 team prediction, match summary, probable XI and more.

Buoyed by their big victory over Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders will look to continue the winning momentum in yet another must-win Indian Premier League tie against Kings XI Punjab today.

Placed sixth in the points table, KKR are one of the teams in the slugfest for two remaining spots. Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals have already booked their place in the knockout stage.

KXIP vs KKR: KKR look to continue winning run against KXIP

KKR snapped a six-game losing streak to record a 34-run victory over Mumbai at Eden Gardens last week to revive their chances of a playoffs berth.

KKR will take on Mumbai after facing Kings XI in another away game, their last league engagement. The Dinesh-Karthik led side will have to win the those fixtures in order to secure a playoff spot and not depend on any other team. But in Kings XI, they face another side eager to make the grade.

R Ashwin's side are a rung below KKR at seventh and have lost their last three games. They were washed away by a dominant Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last outing, largely due to David Warner's brilliance and Kings XI bowlers not putting up a good show collectively. It was a rare off day for Afghanistan spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman as he went for 66 runs.

KL Rahul has been the only in-form batsman for Kings XI with Chris Gayle blowing hot and cold.

For KKR, Chris Lynn and Shubman Gill scored half centuries in their last game and Andre Russell continued his blistering show with the bat after being promoted to No. 3 for the first time this season.

KKR's misfiring bowling arsenal made amends too, with Harry Gurney, Russell and Sunil Narine getting two wickets each.

KXIP vs KKR: Dream 11 top 6 picks

KXIP, the fan favourites come bearing a lot of batting fire power and you should definitely opt for two of their batsmen, namely- K L Rahul, who seems to be reliable and in top form and Chris Gayle, who is of course the most explosive batsman in the IPL. From the bowling side, pick captain of the team, Ravichandran Ashwin, who is a leading wicket taker. Also, Ashwin could be a wild card pick if KKR is chasing a big target.

As for KKR, one should opt for Chris Lynn, who is a well performing opening batsman, Nitish Rana, who would love the surface at Mohali and plays well against spin bowlers. Since Punjab has 3 spinners, Rana would be a good pick today to compete against the spinners. Also, it would be foolish to leave Andre Russell out of the squad. He is in top form and his all rounder skills would be beneficial to the team.

Parents of students in Jaipur rejoice as the Rajasthan govt orders to waive off fees by 30-40%

The concerned department has also submitted a report with SOP guidelines to the Chief Minister's Office, requesting suggestions on reopening of schools from November 2.

Bringing a sigh of relief amidst the parents in the state amidst this ongoing pandemic, the Rajasthan government has ordered the CBSE affiliated private schools to waive off their tuition fees by 30% for class 9 to 12. Along with it, the schools which are affiliated with the state board, have to slash their fees by 40%, for the same grades.

Along side this, the Progressive Association School of Rajasthan, which filed a plea against the High Court's decision ordering 30% deduction in school tuition fee, was not in support of this conclusion. "This decision is not right, it is discriminatory. If it is implemented, we will go against it to the Supreme Court. How will the schools be able to pay salaries to teachers and staff if fees are slashed by 30 and 40 per cent?"
