Enduring a torrid start to the IPL season, KXIP remained rooted to the bottom of the standings earlier on. However, they seem to have turned a corner in recent weeks, and have climbed up the ladder. Count on them to cause RR all sorts of problems in this upcoming contest.Bet Now!
It was business as usual for Rahul’s men last time out, as they comfortably breezed past fellow top-four contenders KKR, winning by eight wickets. This vital victory propelled KXIP to within four points of league leaders Mumbai Indians.
On the day, their batsmen were on fire, with Mandeep Singh and Chris Gayle scoring massive runs. In the bowling unit, Mohammed Shami has led the attack expertly over the last few weeks, and even picked up 3 wickets in the previous game.
Against MI’s magnificent bowling unit, RR chased down a staggering total of 195 runs with relative ease to score an important victory. Having been so quiet this season, Ben Stokes got into his stride, scoring a match-winning century.
Sanju Samson formed a healthy partnership with him, scoring fifty runs for himself. In the bowling setup, RR looked comfortable, as Jofra Archer and Shreyas Gopal did a decent job – both picking up two wickets each, and giving runs less than 8 RPO.
However, they will have their work cut-out against this KXIP side that haven’t put a foot wrong over the previous five fixtures. We just cannot see Steve Smith’s men pulling off another coup here. Hence, count on Kings XI Punjab to win this match.
