IPL 2017 : Can Gujarat Lions win their 2nd game on a trot or will Kings XI Punjab break their 3 consecutive losing streak?

Kings XI Punjab

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: First Innings Score

Kings XI Punjab showed good form with the bat in their last match – having made 198 in their first innings. They will hope for a similar show with the bat, aiming to put a score in excess of 160+ in the first innings.

Kings XI Punjab face the challenge of keeping themselves alive in IPL 2017

After having started IPL 2017 on a winning note, Punjab is now facing a dire situation of maintaining themselves in the top 4 of the points table – having had 3 consecutive losses in the tournament, the last one being an absolute thrashing faced against the Mumbai Indians.

The inability to contain runs or take wickets of Punjab bowlers is costing the team

Kings XI Punjab batted first and put 198 on the board against the Mumbai Indians – a score that gave Punjab a great chance of winning the match but it wasn’t to be; due to extremely poor show of bowling from the Punjab bowlers; all of whom went at over 10 the over, with 3 bowlers going over 13 to the over. The bowling performance was so dreary that Mumbai Indians chased down the target of 199 with 27 balls to spare.

Gujarat Lions

KXIP Vs GL Match Prediction: First Innings Score

Gujarat Lions has a strong batting line-up that consists of players like McCullum, Raina, Finch and Karthik. In order to have a shot at victory, Gujarat needs to put at least 160 on the board.

Gujarat Lions – individual performances, not team efforts

Similar to Punjab’s fate in the IPL 2017, Lions too has had a rather unimpressive last 2 weeks in the tournament. Having a side that can easily beat any strong XI in IPL 2017; Gujarat has had individual performances stand out but the whole team has collectively not managed to seek a winning run for their side and that’s precisely why they’re at the bottom of the points table.

A victory at last for GL

The Gujarat Lions have though found some respite this season with a win in their last match against KKR – chasing in excess of 180 runs. Having gotten off to a quick start with 50 runs in 4 overs (losing just 1 wicket that of Finch – who had already gotten the team off to a quick start). The Lions chase was hampered due to rain, subsequent to which a well settled McCullum fell and Karthik followed him to the pavilion as well. But, as we pointed out –  IPL 2017 for GL has been about individual performances and this night belonged to their captain in Raina – whose 84 guided the team to a much-needed win.

Who’ll win today? Today’s Match Prediction:

The Kings XI Punjab will come into the match with the intention of closing their losing streak and making the most of playing the team at the bottom of the points table in GL.

IPL 2017: Can the ‘big show’ fire against GL?

Glenn Maxwell – he blistered away boundaries against the Mumbai Indians and was pivotal to have taken the Kings XI Punjab’s run rate to over 10, he’s the captain of the side and should his bat fire against GL – the Kings XI Punjab can again reach a total above 180+. We predict he will cross 30 run mark.
