KXIP’s rise has been miraculous. It’s pretty difficult to believe that KL Rahul’s men had been languishing at the foot of the standings just a few weeks ago. Now, they sit pretty in fourth, and are well on-course for a place in the next round of the competition. Brace yourselves for a cracking game in Sharjah.Bet Now!
Surprisingly, newcomers Nitish Rana and Sunil Narine turned in performances of the highest quality - the duo garnering a staggering 113 runs between themselves. Eoin Morgan chipped in with decent support as he helped his side’s cause to 194 runs.
Pat Cummins ran the show in the bowling unit as he outclassed DC’s Ajinkya Rahane and star player Shikhar Dhawan, leaving the opposition languishing at 13/2. Varun Chakravarthy was another bright spark, picking up five wickets whilst Cummins managed three.
Working their asses off, they managed to see off struggling side SRH on the last matchday. Their batting unit never really got going throughout the game, almost costing the team in the end. With only 126 runs on the board, it is fair to say Rahul’s men were lucky to have come away with the win.
Maxwell is likely to sit out this upcoming contest, opening up a slot for James Neesham. KXIP’s bowlers deserve a pat on the back for their relentless display in the previous game, as they defended their lead all through the 20 overs. Chris Jordan and Arshdeep Singh were the top of the pops for this side on the day.
This squad depth could come in handy against a KXIP team that seems fatigued at the moment. As Kolkata Knight Riders are likely to be more agile here, count on them to clinch the points. Kings XI Punjab To Win the Match, 2.10
