This is the smallest stadium in all the three stadiums in the UAE and teams are expected to give more run in the match. Kings Eleven (KXIP) have not yet given any chance to Chris Gayle in this IPL. Gayle can be inducted into the team in Sharjah. But if Gayle is roped in, what will happen to the opening pair of Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul? Both of them have performed wonderfully in both the matches so far. Nicolas Puran may be excluded if Gayle plays.

There is also good news for the Royals that their explosive batsmen Jos Buttler has completed the quarantine and is fully fit to play. Buttler can be given space in the medium order. Sanju Samson has shown his strength in the third place after the opening pair of Captain Steve Smith and Yashasvi Jaiswal. Buttler will come in order to give a different strength to the batting order. Now, if Butler comes, who will sit outside is a big question. But it seems that David Miller may not be able to make a place in the last decade.
