KXIP Vs RCB 14th May, IPL 2018 Match Prediction & Analysis, Preview, Playing 11, Betting Tips.

The 48th match of IPL 2018 will be between the Kings XI Punjab and the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Holkar Stadium Indore. While Kings XI Punjab is in the top three, RCB is struggling in the 7th position in the points table. KXIP will be looking to recuperate from their loss against KKR in the last match; RCB will be looking forward to their second win in a row. If KXIP wins, it will put them in a firm position to seal a berth in the playoffs. RCB will have to hope for a miracle now in order to break into top four.

Kings XI Punjab

The Punjabi lions are showing some true courage in IPL 2018. Sitting in the third position with six wins from 11 games, the match against RCB will be put them in a comfortable spot with a win. Even though they lost their last match, their next match will prove to be game-changing. The people of Indore, who saw the live match between KXIP and KKR, truly had a gala time. With more than 450 runs being racked up by both teams, it was a batting parade.

Bowling Line-up

The bowling department suffered a heavy beating at the hands of Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, and Dinesh Karthik. Andrew Tye was successful having grabbed 4 wickets but even he got hit for 41 runs. Kings XI does have a decent bowling lineup with Mohit Sharma, Andrew Tye, Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel. The bowlers had a pretty forgettable night as they failed to restrict KKR, who ended up amassing a mammoth 245 runs on board. The Punjab bowling has not been up to the mark in IPL 2018. Ashwin really needs to step up his game and lead the bowling attack.

Betting Line-up

The strongest point for KXIP is their batting, hands down. When someone like Chris Gayle is on your team, you tend to sit back and let him smash bowlers. David Miller, Aaron Finch and even the young and explosive KL Rahul have been chipping in with the bat. Rahul opened the game with a bang against KKR with a rapid fire of 66 in just 29 deliveries. But with the middle order somewhat failing, Punjab came short of 31 runs and lost the match. One can expect the same batting totals against RCB also.

Key Players

Expect another batting fiesta this time also with big hitters on both sides. Gayle, Rahul, and Finch will play the role of delivering with the bat.

Predicted Playing XI

KL Rahul, Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair, Aaron Finch, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Andrew Tye, Mohit Sharma, Mujeeb Ur Rahman.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

RCB have struggled in IPL 2018. It has not been an easy season for the Kohli led the team as they have managed only 8 points from 11 matches. Despite boasting a tremendous batting lineup and bowling attack, Royal Challengers Bangalore has managed to stutter. The bowling, especially, has been poor from the Bangalore side. They managed to finally get a win in the last match against the Delhi Daredevils, but is it to too late?

Bowling Line-up

The bowling concerns were still very much viable in the last match, as RCB bowlers still need to find a good death over specialist. Tim Southee endured an unmemorable night as well as Mohammed Siraj. Umesh Yadav also failed to pick up wickets while Moeen Ali grabbed only one. Chahal enjoyed a good night as he picked up two wickets. The bowling, on the whole, has been unimpressive lately and against a batting heavy KXIP, it might cost deadly.

Betting Line-up

Perhaps one of the most starred batting lineups for any team in IPL 2018, RCB have the ability to chase down scores. But if the big three of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Brendan McCullum fail to deliver, RCB have a tough time to get going. It was another spectacular performance from Kohli and de Villiers as they almost single-handedly chased down DD’s 186. Among other batsmen, Parthiv Patel and Mandeep Singh will need to help out with scoring.

It will be a batting match as the Indore crowd will be looking for another big hitting from Kohli and AB de Villiers.

Predicted Playing XI

Parthiv Patel, Brendon McCullum, Virat Kohli, Mandeep Singh, AB de Villiers, Moeen Ali, Tim Southee, Colin de Grandhomme, Mohammed Siraj, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal.
