The IPL tournament which can also be called a Vacation plan for everyone and the next match we are going to see is Rajasthan Royals competing with Kings XI Punjab at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in the pink city Jaipur. It will be a massive clash of the Kings and the Royals on 25th March 8:00 PM
Today’s IPL match prediction is as followed:-
RR vs KXIP Toss Predictions :
The Pitch report for Sawai Mansingh Stadium is that the weather is humid and makes the pitch dry and it slows the runs, the average batting score in IPL is 156 and one would opt to bowl first to chase quickly.
If RR bats first (predicted score 140-170)
Royals having the potential in their batting line-up till Krishnappa Gowtham who had proved to be a great finisher last season, the main strength of Royals batting unit is Jos Buttler who was their highest run scorer last season will also be the one to take the charge right from the front, also key batsmen like Ben Stokes, Rahul Tripathi and Sanju Samson will add runs to the board in the middle-order.
If Kxip bats first (predicted score 140-160):
The batting of Punjab where if Rahul and Gayle don’t work there will be Henriques and Karun Nair down the order to score freely. The opening pair would be predicted to make a 50 run-stand together, Punjab would be struggling to make runs on the dry surface.
RR:- There will be a question about Steven Smith leading the die or Ajinkya Rahane may continue? Smith coming back would lift the team’s confidence as they were knocked out from eliminator last season and this year will aim to come back and take the trophy for the second time. Buttler, Stokes, Archer would be the favourite overseas players to be played regularly in the squad. Samson, Tripathi and Vohra can be options to be played in the middle-order. Rajasthan has plenty of good options to execute.
Rajasthan predicted playing XI:- Rahane, Buttler, Samson, Smith, Tripathi, Stokes, Binny, Gowtham, Archer, Unadkat, Gopal.
KXIP:- Punjab might play three seamers and two spinners along with 6 batsmen in the start, there are many options to be selected like Miller or Pooran? Henriques or Curran? Mandeep or Sarfraz Ahmed. R Ashwin is predicted to lead the team as he did last year. Mujeeb will be the key for Punjab for the particular pitch.
Kxip predicted playing XI:-
Rahul, Gayle, Karun, Mandeep, Prabhsimran, Miller, Ashwin, Tye, Rajpoot, Shami, Mujeeb.
Key Player Battles:-
Tye vs Archer:
It would be a clash of big bash stars, as both love to dominate the batsmen against their deadly yorkers, Tye who was the purple cap holder in the tournament will be the spearhead of the Kings and with his slower ones he can make the batsmen give away his wicket, Archer is also effective in the death and possesses a perfect line delivery on to the stumps. We predict Archer to take more wickets than Tye.
