The qualification scenarios change with every match and every win and teams are doing their best to squeeze into the top-4. Kings XI Punjab are having a complete turnaround in the second half with 5 wins in as many matches after winning just 1 in their first 7 matches. They have outplayed MI, RCB, DC, KKR and every other tam they have faced recently. Rajasthan Royals are precariously placed in the penultimate position and they need to win their remaining matches and will hope the other results go their way to enter into the play-offs.

Kings XI Punjab Preview

KXIP batsmen finished the match with ease as Mandeep Singh (66 runs) and Chris Gayle (51 runs) scored runs in the chase. Skipper KL Rahul, Nicholas Pooran, and Mayank Agarwal are in good form with the bat this season so far. They will hope Glenn Maxwell will fire with the bat in the coming matches.

Mohammed Shami leads the pace attack taking wickets regularly in the powerplay. He took 3 wickets last match. Ravi Bishnoi and Chris Jordan picked up 2 wickets each last game.  M Ashwin and Glenn Maxwell chipped in with vital wickets in to help their bowling attack valiantly.

Top players to bet on:

Chris Gayle – Gayle has scored 2 fifties in the five matches and has played crucial knocks in the middle order this season. KXIP has won all the matches Gayle has played this season.

Mohammed Shami – Shami has been in superb rhythm this season after a small blip in the middle. He has taken 20 wickets so far at an economy rate of 8.5 RPO so far.

Kings XI Punjab Predicted Playing XI:

KL Rahul (c & wk), Mandeep Singh, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Glenn Maxwell, Deepak Hooda, Chris Jordan, Murugan Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh

Rajasthan Royals Preview

RR chased down a massive total of 195 runs with ease against a quality bowling unit like MI. Ben Stokes after a quiet season announced himself with a match winning century. Sanju Samson gave good partnership scoring fifty and sharing an unbeaten 152-run partnership to win the match.

Jofra Archer and Shreyas Gopal picked up 2 wickets each and gave runs at less than 8 RPO in the match while Rahul Tewatia bowled an economical spell giving just 25 runs in his 4 overs. Karthik Tyagi and Ankit Rajpoot gave away 105 runs in their combined 8 overs and did not pick any wickets.

Top players to bet on:

Ben Stokes – Stokes scored 107 runs off 60 balls with 14 sixes and 3 sixes last night. He was sublime with the bat scoring runs with ease against all the MI bowlers both spin and pace. We expect him to continue his good form with the bat in this match too.

Jofra Archer – Jofra Archer is producing an exhibition of pace bowling this season with bouncers and yorkers.    He has 7 wickets at an impressive economy of just 6.7 RPO despite bowling in power play and death overs.

Rajasthan Royals Predicted Playing XI:

Robin Uthappa, Ben Stokes, Sanju Samson (wk), Jos Buttler, Steven Smith (c), Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Unadkat, Kartik Tyagi

Weather Conditions

Abu Dhabi has a hot and humid weather with the dew expected in the second half of the match.

Venue Details

Abu Dhabi pitch is good to bat on with teams making 190+ runs in the last 2 matches. Batsmen need to watchful against the new ball as it might zip off the surface. We expect average scores to be in the range of 160-180 runs here.

Toss: To Bowl

RR chased down 195 runs on this track last time and both teams will look to chase down the total as the pitch is expected to remain the same throughout the match.  

Rajasthan Royals will be high on confidence after beating the table toppers MI comfortably chasing massive total.  They have a quality batting line-up with international stars while 4th and 5th bowling options are their weakness currently. KXIP are on a roll currently and they are in-form team of the IPL currently squashing every opposition in their way. They will believe they can beat any opposition currently and we expect them to continue their dream run this season.

KINGS XI PUNJAB will win the match
