Royal Challengers Bangalore

The nightmarish run for RCB just isn’t ending in this season of Vivo IPL. In the tournament thus far, RCB has just 2 wins to it’s name out of 12 matches played, losing shockingly 9 of their 12 games. A side that has all the talent that can deliver on the field has somehow failed to create a group that is able to work together and translate potential into performance in the middle. It’s hard to believe this is the very side that reached finals last year as their most recent loss against Punjab – chasing a mere 139 proved too much as RCB was bundled out for just 119.

IPL Match Prediction 2017 : First Innings Score

Taking into consideration the horrible out of sorts looking RCB batting unit that is even unable to put in excess of 130+ on the board, we predict they’ll be quite content if they can reach 130+ in their first innings.

IPL Match Prediction 2017 : Predicted XI – Mandeep Singh, Gayle/Head, Kohli*, Villiers, Jadhav(WK), Watson, Negi, Aravind, Badree, Choudhary, Chahal

 

Kolkata Knight Riders

Currently at the 2nd spot in the points table, KKR will see this match as the ideal one to win and seal a birth in the playoffs. Having lost Lynn early in the tournament and having faced problems initially with form of their middle order – namely Surya Kumar Yadav & Uthappa, the last 3 weeks has been impeccable for the franchise as Uthappa and the captain himself in Gambhir have risen to the occasion and shown great form. KKR did lose to RPS in their last game but didn’t go down without fighting – they’ve a tremendous opportunity here to make it to the playoffs.

IPL Match Prediction 2017 : First Innings Score

KKR has been generally positive with the bat this season. We predict a score in excess of 160+ is quite achievable for them, if they bat first against RCB.

IPL 2017 : Predicted XI – Narine, Gambhir*, Jackson(WK), Pandey, Pathan, Grandhomme, Kuldeep Yadav, Woakes, Coulter-Nile, Umesh Yadav

 

IPL Match Prediction 2017 : Toss

KKR will win the toss and elect to chase. Kolkata Knight Riders has had a great run this IPL in chasing. Their bowlers tend to feel under the pump while defending a total and thus KKR will look to chase if they win the coin toss.

IPL Match Prediction 2017: Match Winning Team

Kolkata Knight Riders should seize victory in this without much problem. RCB is looking totally out of sync and they’ll be hoping that they can put up a valiant fight against the KKR – which doesn’t seem likely as the whole RCB star-studded batting unit is looking out of form and coming back to form against KKR wont be easy.

IPL Match Prediction 2017 : Key Player Prediction

IPL Match Prediction 2017 : Kohli's blazing form can be expected against KKR as RCB's chips are down
IPL Match Prediction 2017 : Kohli’s blazing form can be expected against KKR as RCB’s chips are down

Virat Kohli – can the captain rise up to the occasion! It’s the very question that RCB fans would be asking from their skipper in Kohli. We know him to be a fighter and someone who performs just when needed. We predict he will score 30+ in this key fixture.
