Match Preview

Indian Premier League is completed almost the half-way stage and teams are fighting for their spots in the top-4 position.  Royal Challengers Bangalore are having a superb season so far winning 5 out of their 7 matches and are currently only behind MI & DC in terms of Net Run Rate. They will look to dominate the teams and qualify for the knockouts at the earliest. Their only blemish came up against KXIP this season when KL Rahul took their bowlers on carnage. Kings XI Punjab`s only victory so far came against RCB and will look to repeat their heroics and win this match to resurrect their campaign.

Teams Preview

Royal Challengers Bangalore Preview

Royal Challengers Bangalore is having a quality batting line-up with their top-4 firing this season. Openers Aaron Finch (47 runs) and Devdutt Padikkal (32 runs) set the tone of the match with their 67-run opening partnership. ABD then took charge with a superlative 73 runs off just 33 balls alongside Virat Kohli (33 runs) in their unbeaten 100-run partnership.

RCB`s bowling has been on fire in the last 2-3 matches. All the six bowlers used picked up wickets with Morris and Washington Sundar leading with 2 wickets each. Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzi Chahal, and Isuru Udana chipped in with a wicket each.

Top Player to Bet on:

AB De Villiers – ABD was a class apart last night scoring 73 runs off 33 balls on a slow track when every other batsman was struggling to score quickly. He hit 5 boundaries and 6 sixes in his knock last match.

Chris Morris – Morris has 5 wickets in 2 matches and gave runs at less than % RPO so far. His addition has made a huge difference to the RCB`s bowling in the power play and death overs.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Predicted Playing XI:

Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers (wk), Washington Sundar, Shivam Dube, Chris Morris, Isuru Udana, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal

Kings XI Punjab Preview

Kings XI Punjab is in turmoil and has lost their last 5 matches on a row. Openers KL Rahul (74 runs) and Mayank Agarwal (56 runs) started the match with a superb 115-run partnership. Their middle order struggled after the dismissal of openers and went to lose by 2 runs. Glenn Maxwell and Nicholas Pooran did their best with their small cameos.

KXIP are yet to sort their best bowling combination even after 7 matches. Arshadeep Singh and Ravi Bishnoi were excellent with the ball with identical figures of 1/25. Mohammed Shami too has been good with the ball in the powerplay. Sheldon Cotrell may return in the playing XI this match. 

Top Player to Bet on:

KL Rahul – KL Rahul leads the batting charts with 387 runs at a strike rate of 135+ so far.  He was brilliant with the bat in their last math scoring 74 runs off 58 balls. We expect him to make a big score in this match.

Arshadeep Singh – Arshadeep took the new ball alongside Mohammed Shami and had bowling figures of 4-1-25-1. He will look to continue his good form with the ball.

Kings XI Punjab Predicted Playing XI:

KL Rahul (c), Mayank Agarwal, Mandeep Singh, Nicholas Pooran, Simran Singh (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Mujeeb Ur Rahman/Sheldon Cottrell, Chris Jordan, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh

Weather Conditions

Sharjah will have a hot and humid climate on the match day. Dew might come in the later stages of the match making life difficult for bowlers.

Venue Details

Sharjah has been a high scoring ground owing to its dimensions mainly. The pitches are getting slower and the bowlers will look to take advantage of the conditions. We expect the average scores to be around 170-190 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bat

The pitch will slow down as the match progresses so batting becomes difficult in the second innings. Both captains will look to bat first if they win the toss.

Winning Prediction

RCB are on a roll with wins in their last two matches by a comfortable margin defending the scores. With Kohli and ABD looking in good touch and bowlers contributing for the team, RCB looks very dangerous at the moment. Kings XI Punjab looks down and out at the moment with bowling being their biggest worry. They will look to individual performances to boost their team morale. We expect RCB to win this match.

Royal Challengers Bangalore will win the match!
