Two points separates RPS and KXIP in the standings. RPS are fourth in the table with 16 points, while KXIP are fifth with 14 points. If KXIP win this contest, they will draw level with RPS on 16 points, but since they have a better run rate they should sneak through to the playoffs in fourth position. A win for RPS meanwhile will catapult them to second in the eight-team standings and set up a date with the Mumbai Indians.
