Clearly the worst team in the league, KXIP are rooted to the bottom of the standings with only a single victory from their six games. In something of a tailspin, K.L. Rahul’s men need a victory soon enough to bring their embarrassing losing streak to a halt.
Expected to lose against SRH on the last match day, Kings XI Punjab did not pull off any surprise, trailing their superior opposition by a staggering 69 runs. A miserable game it was for KXIP, they were condemned to their fourth IPL defeat on the spin.
Rahul and Mayank Agarwal’s floundering openers has been a pain in KXIP’s ass. Returning from an injury, Nicholas Pooran was the only bright spark in an otherwise dull Punjab display. Glenn Maxwell’s performances this season has been pathetic – the Aussie costing his side dearly on many occasions.
They roared to victory on the last matchday, piping CSK to the two points by 10 runs. Their bowling attack was particularly pleasing, giving the opposition a run for their money. With Rahul Tripathi back in the side, his opening combination with Shubman Gill came good last time out.
Eoin Morgan and Nitish Rana have been decent, in their own right. Perhaps, it is the form of Sunil Narine that has put KKR in jeopardy at times. Karthik will be hoping Varun Chakravarthy and Kamlesh Nagarkoti continue their bowling exploits in this upcoming fixture.
KKR have some brilliant bowlers who are sure to take charge of this game. On paper, KKR are huge favorites and quite rightly so. Count on Dinesh Karthik’s men to roar to victory in this fixture. KXIP VS KKR BETTING TIPS
