Toss Predictions for KXIP vs RCB :
The Pitch report for the Punjab cricket association stadium where earlier the wicket used to offer good carry and bounce to the pacers, nowadays it has slowed down and it has become more batsmen favourable pitch, where even 180 plus runs are being chased, so one winning the toss would like to field so that they can chase a specific target.
If Kxip bats first (predicted score 160-180)
The Kings would want to execute big shots with the big players in their basket, Gayle in the front is a bonus for them and having Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair and Miller behind him would be another beneficial factor to score the big amount of runs, Rahul’s form will majorly dependent on how they come up. Also, the skipper Ashwin can bat and make 20-30 runs in the end.
If RCB bats first (predicted score 170-190)
Looking at the batting line-up of Bangalore right from the start they will aim to go after the opposition bowlers as they have big hitters till No.7 and the key innings will be played in the middle-order by De Villiers and Ali. Our Ipl match predictions suggest that someone like Marcus Stoinis who can come to bat at 6 can play a big inning which can add handful runs to the team.
Kings 11 Punjab :- The Kings have a good batting lineup with most of the players in form. The opners Rahul and Gayle are the key to the side for a good start. KL Rahul has been striking the bowl well and has scored consecutive 50s. The middle order also in good touch with Mayank, Miller and Mandeep. Adding Sam Curran for some bigg hitting in the end of the innings. Henriques could be a repacement for Curran in the side. What kxip have to worry about is their bowling. They performed very bad in the last game which lead them to a loss. Andrew tye will make a comeback to the side along side Mujeeb.
Kxip predicted playing XI:- Gayle, Rahul, Henriques, Nair, Agarwal, Mandeep, Miller, Ashwin, Tye, M Ashwin, Shami.
Royal Challengers Bangalore:-Disappointing season for rcb as they are still looking for a win this season. With six consecutive losses the team has been demotivated and are confused on their playing XI. Kohli is confused on what changes he has to make to the side as he is out of options. We predict Moeen Ali to remain in the side along with Stoinis.
Rcb predicted playing XI:-
Parthiv Patel, Kohli, De Villiers, Hetmyer, Shivam Dube, Stoinis, Ali, Sundar, Siraj, Umesh, Chahal.
Key Player Battles for KXIP vs RCB:-
Gayle vs Kohli
The former RCB openers who used to do dual things together along with playing also making sure they could entertain the crowd with some funny dance or actions. Gayle after being released from Rcb has moved to Kings XI since last season and will be a ferocious batsman against his previous team and would wish to play a big inning against them. Kohli is Rcb’s frontline star and is expected to continue to attack from the start. We predict Kohli to score more runs than Chris Gayle.
