History and head to head:
Kings XI Punjab have a 2-1 advantage over Rising Pune Supergiant as far as head to head record goes. Both their wins, however, have been in Mohali and this is the first timein two yearsthat they'll be playing in Pune, where RPS have won four out of six in IPL 2017.

What to expect: With temperatures expected to reach a high of 37 degree Celsius at the start of the game, the team bowling first will face the brunt of the Pune heat. With 180+ scores being chased down with ease at this venue, another high-scoring game can be expected and chasing will be the preferred option for the captain winning the toss, with four out of six matches here being won by teams batting second.

Team News:
Rising Pune Supergiant:
Fresh off a game against DD, RPS did not practise on the day before the game, opting for a much-needed break. They are unlikely to make any changes to their eleven, with Adam Zampa set to play his fourth match of this edition as Imran Tahir has gone home.
Kings XI Punjab: Maxwell's side also did not practise on Saturday, opting to take an additional day's break. With the form of Henry and Ishant acting as a concern, KXIP have options like Darren Sammy and Varun Aaron should they think of replacements.

What they said:
Wriddhiman Saha: "Our target was to play like there's nothing to lose. Execute our plans in all departments, play our natural game and not worry about the outcome. This attitude has helped us defeat KKR and MI. We'll try to play in the same manner in the last match against Pune."
