In the battle of the blues, one team is coming off a resounding loss whereas the other is coming off a resounding win. The tournament is getting interesting as we approach the middle stages of IPL 11. A coverage of what we can expect from both teams. Read on check Match Preview, Team News, Playing XI, Match Analysis, and Prediction

RR (Rajasthan Royals)

The Royals are losing some of their royalty. With two back to back defeats, they are in desperate need of a win to get their season back on the track. After losing to the Knight Riders at home, they were beaten comprehensively by CSK in Pune. As they return to their fortress, looking for win number 3 of the tournament, the Royals thinktank have a lot of things to ponder upon. They haven’t sorted their first team out yet. Just as D’Arcy looked to score big, they replaced the Big Bash star with Heinrich Klaasen. Dhawal Kulkarni too missed the last match.Their pace department looked somewhat futile without Kulkarni and he is expected to return to the line-up. Ex- Royal Shane Watson scored a century against his former as RR’s economical bowling faltered to some extent. AS they came out to chase, their power-packed batting never got going which surely is a matter of concern. The big names in their batting order have to perform to the best of their abilities for RR to have a chance of going all the way.

sanju-samson-vs-rcb-ipl-2018

The performance of Shreyas Gopal was a silver lining, however, in their dismal showing against CSK as he picked up 3 big wickets. Laughlin too has been decent all season and the experienced Aussie would be looking to continue his fine form. Samson hasn’t fired since his blistering knock against the Royal Challengers and would be eager to show the world that his performance wasn’t a fluke. Mumbai Indians have a power-packed batting line-up and smart bowling from the underrated bowlers of the RR is integral to their chances in the game. Our prediction says that Gowtham could be the key, picking up some early wickets and Stokes, from whom a match-winning performance is long overdue.

Rajasthan Royals Playing XI

Ajinkya Rahane( C ), Heinrich Klaasen, Sanju Samson, Rahul Tripathi, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler(WK), Krishnappa Gowtham, Shreyas Gopal, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat, Ben Laughlin

MI (Mumbai Indians) Team News, Playing XI.

The Mumbai Indians finally opened their account in their last match, defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore. Having begun the season with 3 back-to-back losses, the win is crucial for them as they would want to take their winning momentum forward in the match at Jaipur. Having lost two wickets in the first two balls, their back was against the wall in the last match. Just when they needed a moment of inspiration, out stepped their captain, Rohit Sharma and played a world-class knock of 94, painfully missing out on his century. He was ably supported by Evan Lewis. The Pandya brothers too finished their innings well and followed it with an impressive bowling display. Krunal, in particular, was fantastic as he picked up 3 wickets. The inclusion of McClenaghan was a good move as the Kiwi produced a fine performance. Thus, MI must give gained a lot of confidence, something that they would want to capitalize on.

mi-vs-rajasthan-match-prediction-2018

Rohit Sharma’s form is so important for the Mumbai outfit as they rarely lose a game when he fires. Mayank Markande continued to impress but Mustafizur was very expensive as Kohli took him to the cleaners. Evan Lewis, too, is in danger and all bowlers will be wary of him and would be looking to come up with a plan, exclusive to him. Although Surya Kumar failed to deliver against RCB, he will look to prove it was a one-off. With McClenghan, the Mumbai bowling looks very formidable and it would be key against the Royals who have some big hitters. This is a critical phase for the team for Mumbai as their performance in the next 2-3 matches would determine how their season will pan out. They would surely find it difficult in Jaipur, as bowlers who have a variety of pace in their arsenal prove effective. Thus, Hardik Pandya, who hasn’t been in the best of forms with the ball will be key. Rohit, too, would seek another big score against the Royals, who are a difficult side to beat at their home.

Mumbai Indians Playing XI

SuryaKumar Yadav, Evan Lewis, Ishan Kishan ( WK ), Rohit Sharma( C ), Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Mayank Markhande, Mitchell McCleneghan Jasprit Bumrah, Mustafizur Rahman.

RR Vs MI Match Prediction: Who Will Win today’s match Between Rajasthan and Mumbai?

Rajasthan Royals are the team to beat at Jaipur as the Sawai Man Singh Stadium has always been something of a fortress. Mumbai, however, have momentum in their side following their resounding win. The toss will be crucial, as it always is in the SMS Stadium. Though the initial trend of win the toss and chase has shifted somewhat, chasing is till RR’s strength. MI might be looking to bat first and set a big score and put pressure on the opposition with some tight overs. The match promises to be a tight affair. Our prediction is that Rajasthan Royals would emerge victorious because of their resourcefulness and their depth in the batting order.

SRH Vs CSK Prediction 22 April: Match Preview, Playing XI, Analysis and Prediction. Who Will Win today’s match?

SRH Vs CSK Prediction 22 April: Match Preview, Playing XI, Analysis and Prediction. Who Will Win today’s match?

Sunrisers Hyderabad takes on Chennai Super Kings at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad for Match 21 of IPL 2018. Both teams have had a solid start to their campaign and both have registered just a solitary loss, both at Mohali against KXIP, interestingly. The match promises to be a good one with quality players on both sides and let us see what we can expect from this encounter. Read on to check match preview, playing XI, team news, match analysis and match prediction.

SRH (Sunrisers Hyderabad)

Sunrisers Hyderabad had an unbeaten start to their season but they lost to a Chris Gayle-dominated KXIP in their last game. Their bowling line-up which has been the best in the tournament by miles screwed up as they conceded 11 sixes against the destructive Gayle. One of their best bowlers so far, Billy Stanlake, the 6’8 Australian pacer who has picked up 5 wickets in IPL 11 was left out without an announcement of an injury. Chris Jordan took his place and proved expensive. Stanlake is certain to return to their line-up. The rest of their bowlers almost pick themselves, especially Bhuvaneshwar Kumar who had an economy of around 6 even when his team conceded 190 odd runs. His 4 overs would be key again against this destructive Chennai side. SRH depend a lot on their bowling and it doesn’t let them down too often.

srh-vs-csk-match-prediction

Sunrisers were dealt a massive blow at the start of their chase in the last match. Shikhar Dhawan, their leading run-getter so far, who has been in sparkling form was retired hurt with a knock on his elbow. It is unclear as to whether Dhawan will play against CSK but it is our prediction that he has had ample time to recover and that he will not miss such an important tie. Their middle order looked encouraging at the start of the season but it does definitely lack big-hitters. Carlos Braithwaite could get his Sunrisers debut to add some much-needed firepower down the batting order. Kane Williamson has had impressive charts but he hasn’t quite capitalized as he should and would look to get a really big score before it is too late. Manish Pandey, signed for 11 crore INR at the auction hasn’t got going yet and would be eager to spend more time in the middle. Yusuf Pathan, too, looks less dependable by the day. Sunrisers would be looking to bounce back with a win and CSK surely aren’t the weakest opponents. According to our prediction, the match-winners would be Rashid Khan, who took a beating last night and Manish Pandey, who would finally get a huge score.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Playing XI

Shikhar Dhawan, Wriddhiman Saha( wk ), Kane Williamson( c ), Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Carlos Brathwaite, Yusuf Pathan, Rashid Khan, Siddharth Kaul, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Billy Stanlake

CSK (Chennai Super Kings)

The Chennai Super Kings soared to the top of the table following their massive 64-run win against the Rajasthan Royals. It was a clinical display by CSK, something that we’ve become accustomed to as they showcased explosive batting at the top, superb bowling, with all their front-line bowlers picking up wickets and some exquisite fielding. CSK were boosted by the return of their talisman, Suresh Raina as he scored a quick 46. Shane Watson though was the hero of the match with the second ton of IPL 2018. CSK, thus look solid going into the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium Karn Sharma played his first match in this edition of the IPL and looked good as he picked up two wickets in 9 deliveries.

chennai-super-kings-vs-sunrisers-hyderabad-prediction-who-will-win-today

Dwayne Bravo continued his good from both with bat and ball and CSK is banking a lot on the massive experience of their major players in IPL. MS Dhoni was very smart with his bowling changes and at this stage, CSK looks the team to beat. Imran Tahir has picked up wickets at crucial junctures and would be hoping to do more of the same in the later stages. They come to Hyderabad looking to continue their form but would also be aware of the quality in SRH’s line-up. It will be a fascinating encounter, especially between SRH’s bowling and CSK’s batting. CSK have had explosive starts in almost all their matches and would once again look to have a flying start, something the brilliant SRH opening bowlers would look to prevent. The first 6 overs of the CSK innings could go a long way in determining who comes out on top on Sunday. The key players could be Watson and Dwayne Bravo, with their all-round skills, considering the rich vein of form they find themselves in. Our prediction is that CSK will field an unchanged side as they wouldn’t want to tweak their winning formula.

CSK Playing XI, against SRH

Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, Sam Billings, MS Dhoni (C &WK), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Karn Sharma, Harbhajan Singh, Deepak Chahar, Imran Tahir

SRH Vs CSK Match Prediction: Who Will Win this match?

With their glittering form and their superior head-to-head record, CSK starts as favorites though they are away. In their previous 7 encounters, Chennai Super Kings has defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad 5 times. Both teams have in-form players who can have a major impact on the game. CSK won batting first last time around and would feel more confident now, regardless the result of the toss. Our prediction says that CSK will outwit this SRH team once again.

RCB Vs DD Prediction 21st April: Who Will Win today’s Between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Daredevils?

RCB Vs DD Prediction 21st April: Who Will Win today’s Between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Daredevils?

Royal Challengers Bangalore took on Delhi Daredevils in what could be the most crucial game for the former in IPL 2018. Chinnaswamy isn’t a fortress of RCB, and their recent form means Gautam Gambhir’s DD will look to exploit their weaknesses. Let us unfurl the team news, playing XI, match analysis and who could go on to win the match.

RCB (Royal Challengers Bangalore)

Known as the South Africa of IPL, RCB has done justice to their tag of chokers. Period. Kohli’s unfazed attitude towards the orange cap shows how disappointed he is with his team. His men have looked out of sorts, and despite a shiny batting line-up, they could not chase down MI’s total at Wankhede. It is all going wrong for RCB in IPL 2018, and one should also blame Kohli’s decisions, and at times on-field captaincy. De Villiers looked solid at the start, but his brash decisions are making life difficult for RCB. The inclusion of Corey Anderson over an in-form Colin De Grandhomme is truly baffling. Mandeep Singh has been the only bright Indian star with Sarfaraz Khan woefully out of form.

RCB_Vs_DD_prediction

The bowling department isn’t firing all cylinders, and despite Umesh Yadav’s fiery spell against MI, they lack a cohesive unit. Woakes and Chahal haven’t had the best of games lately. Siraj and Khejroliya haven’t done enough to justify their places. Pawan Negi is another baffling inclusion, and with Manan Vohra and Parthiv Patel in your team, RCB should look to consolidate the middle order.

Virat Kohli remains the key to any team anywhere in the World. IPL 2018 has been a good season for the Indian skipper individually. It is about time that De Kock shows his prowess. Umesh Yadav would be my pick solely due to his wicket-taking abilities.

RCB Playing XI

Quinton De Kock, Virat Kohli, Manan Vohra, AB De Villiers, Mandeep Singh, Parthiv Patel, Colin De Grandhomme, Umesh Yadav, Chris Woakes, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammad Siraj

DD (Delhi Daredevils)

Another IPL another topsy-turvy start for the boys from Delhi. Under their local lad, Delhi DareDevils has shown glimpses of promise, but they would need to start hitting the right spots to earn playoff spots in IPL 2018. The Chinnaswamy pitch has always catered to the batsmen, and DD has a strong batting line-up comprising of the fiery Jason Roy. DD is currently bottom of the IPL 2018 table with three losses and a solitary win. Pant and Maxwell have shown their abilities, but time and again they fail to make it count. The role of Vijay Shankar in Delhi’s team is absolutely peripheral. It is about time they look for other options. Nadeem has been economical by IPL standards, but as a premier spinner, the job of containment isn’t enough.

Trent Boult looks like the only ray of hope in the bowling department, with Shami still getting back to his strides. Amit Mishra, a veteran of IPL is nowhere to be seen, and DD could gamble by dropping Shankar and drafting Amit at his expense.

Trent Boult remains the key on a flat Chinnaswamy wicket, and Jason Roy and GG would be the key to DD’s batting hopes. Maxwell and Pant could be game changers. Morris is a reliable all-rounder, and Gautam Gambhir would pin his hopes on Chris for a quick firing 30 and a steady 4 overs spell.

RCB Vs DD Match Prediction 21st April: Who Will today’s Match Between Bangalore and Delhi?

DD would like to beat RCB psychologically, but both the teams are languishing right now, and one can expect this to be an enthralling battle. It is a tight call as both have been vulnerable. Odds would favor DD, but only by a number or two.

KKR Vs KXIP Prediction 21 April: Who Will today’s Match Between Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab.

KKR Vs KXIP Prediction 21 April: Who Will today’s Match Between Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab.

Kolkata Knight Riders are getting back into their groove with a convincing 7 wickets victory over a strong Rajasthan Royals side. Kings XI Punjab is doing their own Bhangra after sailing past Sunrisers Hyderabad, one of the best teams in IPL 2018. Stay with us to kick off the weekend bonanza with a KKR Vs KXIP clash on the cards. Team News, Playing XI, match analysis and prediction on the cards.

KKR (Kolkata Knight Riders)

It would be unjustified to not consider KKR as title contenders considering their sudden uplift in form. Kolkata Knight Riders could well go onto match Mumbai Indians for a record 3rd title. It is hard to beat Kolkata at their fortress, and KXIP will face a steep challenge considering a well balanced Eden Gardens wicket that seems to cater the spinners since eternity. With Russell unfit to bowl, and Tom Curran still a newbie, Kolkata may look this is an opportunity to play Cameron Delport at the expense of the misfiring Chris Lynn. Sunil Narine is an eternal presence, and despite getting belted for 48 runs in his 4 overs, he made up for that with a sweet 35 and partnered well with Uthappa. Dinesh Karthik got some runs under his belt, and Nitish Rana looks to be the best Indian batsman by a fair margin in IPL 11. IPL 2018 has also seen Chawla resurrect his lost touch and looks pivotal when Russell is unable to open the bowling.

KKR_Vs_KXIP_Match_Prediction

Onus will be on Shivam Mavi to cease the opportunity as DK is putting a lot of faith in the youngster. IPL 2018 has fared well for Kuldeep Yadav, and he seems to enjoy himself at the Mecca of Indian Cricket. It will be a steep task for KXIP, and with the Kolkata weather behaving like London it will be an interesting toss as well.

Sunil Narine, both with the ball and bat will be the key to KKR’s success. Nitish Rana and Uthappa would make a case for themselves, and Russell remains the most priced wicket in IPL 2018 for KKR.

KKR Playing XI

Chris Lynn/Cameron Delport, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Dinesh Karthik, Shubhman Gill, Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Tom Curran, Shivam Mavi

KXIP (Kings XI Punjab)

kxip_vs_kkr_match_prediction-ipl-2018

KXIP has rocked SRH with a convincing victory and they will look to dominate the early stages of IPL 2018 to grab the top two coveted spots. The team looks balanced, and the brilliance of Christopher Henry Gayle is something to watch and appreciate. Gayle notched up his 6th IPL hundred, a record in itself, but looks to feel the heat of India. With the Kolkata weather known for his humidity, Gayle would make use of the smaller boundaries. KL Rahul has been ominous too and can decide a match by himself. We haven’t seen Miller till now, and it looks like Finch would hold onto his spot for at least another match. Yuvraj Singh hasn’t been at his best, but when his day arrives IPL 2018 will see another mind-boggling effort from the veteran.

Ashwin, Mohit Sharma, Sran, and Andrew Tye are forming a formidable partnership, but much will depend on their middle over bowling where Russell is wreaking havoc. Given KXIP contain Russell, they could well win this IPL tie.

Chris Gayle and KL Rahul without a shadow of a doubt. The bowling department will rely on the experience of Tye and Sharma with Ashwin looking to scalp Narine before he brings his own mayhem.

KKR Vs KXIP Match Prediction: Who Will Win today’s match?

This one is a toughie! We will go with KKR considering their IPL fortress, and three quality spinners. It will be two big men from Windies who could decide the tie. So, a Gayle Vs Russell show winner would tilt the tie in their favor.

CSK Vs RR Match Prediction 20 April: Who Will Win today’s Match Between Chennai Superkings and Rajasthan Royal?

CSK Vs RR Match Prediction 20 April: Who Will Win today’s Match Between Chennai Superkings and Rajasthan Royal?

Chennai Super Kings are all set to lock horns with Rajasthan Royals in Match 17 of IPL 2018. It signals the first match for CSK at their new home ground Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune after the Chidambaram Stadium was stripped off all its games following huge Cauvery protests in the state of Tamil Nadu. Both teams are returning to the IPL after a hiatus of two years and would be looking to get the upper hand in this much-awaited tie. A look at both teams followed by our coverage of what we can expect from this mid-table clash.

chennai-super-kings-vs-rajasthan-royals-match-prediction

CSK (Chennai Super Kings)

The Super Kings had an impressive start to the season with two wins on the trot. They lost some of their momentum, however, as they lost at Mohali. They have collected 4 points out of a possible 6. However, times aren’t exactly rosy for the outfit from Chennai. After being hit with two major injuries right at the beginning, all home games of CSK have been shifted from the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai following unrest in the city because of massive Cauvery protests. MS Dhoni, often regarded the best captain the IPL has ever seen, has a massive task in his hands as his team needs inspiration and leadership. Murali Vijay replaced the injured Suresh Raina, who won’t feature against the Royals either and is expected to keep his place.

Although CSK lost their last game, there were some encouraging signs, the biggest of them being the spectacular return to form of their skipper with a score of 79 not out. Their batting order looks assured and it is their bowling that has been leaking too many runs. In both of their last two matches, they’ve bowled first and conceded around 200 runs making it difficult for their batting side to chase it down. Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar need to take more responsibility as the CSK bowling department clearly lacks the star power of earlier reasons. Tahir and Jadeja have been impressive and would look to continue their good form. Harbhajan and Bravo need to have stronger impacts during their bowling.

csk_vs_rr_match_prediction_who_will_win_today

All batsmen of CSK have had starts and Rayudu, Watson, and Billings, in particular, look in fantastic touch. This will be the first game to be played in Pune this season and the condition of the track would be a mystery for both teams. Dhoni may look for some change in strategy. It wouldn’t be surprising to see CSK try their hand at batting first on the unknown Pune wicket if they win the toss again, considering the fact that CSK has a lot of firepower in their batting. A total in excess of 200 can put RR under pressure while chasing. Our prediction is that CSK would field an unchanged side as Dhoni doesn’t like chopping and changing. The key could be Imran Tahir’s canny ability to pick up crucial wickets and the skipper himself who looks to be back in form.

CSK Playing XI against Rajasthan Royals

Shane Watson, Murali Vijay, Ambati Rayudu, Sam Billings, MS Dhoni (C &WK), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Harbhajan Singh, Deepak Chahar, Imran Tahir

RR (Rajasthan Royals)

The Rajasthan Royals have had a reasonable start to their campaign after 2 years out of IPL, with 2 wins and 2 defeats and would be looking for some consistency. They have found it a bit difficult after the tragic events concerning their skipper Steve Smith. New captain Ajinkya Rahane has done a commendable job in the absence of the Aussie star. He has batted well too and has looked to provide a solid foundation. He needs to convert his starts to have a bigger impact on his team. Big Bash star D’Arcy Short found some form at last against the Knight Riders in their last game and would be eager to show India what he’s made off. Sanju Samson, though, has been the star so far with a blistering 92 against the Royal Challengers. They have a lot of firepower in their batting which they must utilize to some good effect. Jos Buttler hasn’t had much time in the middle. Players like Stokes and Buttler need to spend more time on the crease to be as destructive as they can be.

sanju-samson-vs-rcb-ipl-2018

Most impressive, however, have been the performances by young Indians. Rahul Tripathi and Krishnappa Gowtham have been magnificent both with and ball and need to sustain their high level of performance. Their pace department looks the strongest as Dhawal Kulkarni, Ben Laughlin, Ben Stokes, and Jaydev Unadkat all look imposing though they lacked the cutting-edge against the Knight Riders. Their fielding looks spectacular too and the Royals look like a team with a lot of potentials. Their starting line up looks settled, which is key for any team in a major tournament and without any disastrous performance by anyone or without any injury, no one seems likely to lose his place. The form of Rahane is important for the team and if he hangs around for more than 14-15 overs every match, playing anchor to big hitters like Short, Samson, Stokes, and Buttler, RR is extremely likely to win. The key players are the skipper and Dhawal Kulkarni with his smart bowling throughout the innings.

CSK Vs RR Match Prediction: Who Will today’s IPL Match? 

Although the unanimous decision after winning the toss has been to bowl first so far, it is our prediction that the team which bats first will win on this unknown Pune pitch. Fans of both teams will see this much-anticipated repeat of IPL 10 finals after a long long time. Both teams have had synonymous starts to their respective season, though RR has played one extra game. CSK have had the better in previous encounters, winning 11 of 18 matches played between the sides and start as favorite having had the better of RR in all 4 of their previous encounters. 

CSK (Chennai Super Kings) is favorites to win today’s match.

KXIP Vs SRH Prediction 19 April: Who Will Win today’s Match Between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab?

KXIP Vs SRH Prediction 19 April: Who Will Win today’s Match Between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab?

The aesthetically pleasing ground of Mohali is going to have a ball as two of the most exciting IPL teams will be facing off each other in a battle for supremacy. Sunrisers Hyderabad is the most balanced team of IPL 2018 (personal opinion), and have been excellent even without their talismanic batsman David Warner. Kings XI Punjab will be backing themselves after defeating CSK. Let us get on with the match details and predict the outcome, shall we?

KXIP_vs_SRH_match_prediction

KXIP (Kings XI Punjab)

One of the strongest teams of IPL 2018, KXIP has the liberty to bench David Miller and still look ominous on the pitch. It was baffling to see Chris Gayle sit out for a couple of matches, and the Windian was back to his best with a fluent 63 against CSK. The form of Aaron Finch will worry Ashwin, but he will still have Miller and Stoinis at his disposal. Yuvraj looked good, but it is about time that Ashwin looks for a more explosive option. Stoinis will make a good case considering his bowling abilities as KXIP look a batsman short whenever they field Finch and Yuvi together. However, KL Rahul is proving his worth after being whopped in for a mammoth 11 crore, and he has looked sublime ever since.

IPL 11 has seen Ashwin keep faith in Mohit Sharma, and despite knowing his remit, Sharma could spearhead the attack with Barinder Sran and Andrew Tye in the company. Ashwin has been troubled with his decision making, and despite Mohali’s huge outfield he seems to bowl a negative line. Mohali has always been kind to the fast bowlers, but with Axar Patel out it is likely to be an unchanged XI.

Rahul and Gayle without a shadow of doubt will be the key players, and one of them could well land the purple cap of IPL 2018. Nair and Agarwal have looked good as well, and the domestic lads will try to make the most of it. Andrew Tye with all his variations can be a game changer with the subtlety of Mohit Sharma always there.

KXIP Playing XI

Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Yuvraj Singh, David Miller, Karun Nair, Ravichandran Ashwin, Andrew Tye, Barinder Sran, Mohit Sharma, Mujeeb ur Rahman

SRH (Sunrisers Hyderabad)

One of the most balanced team if not the best; again. Sunrisers Hyderabad is looking for another grandstand finish this time without David Warner. Saha and Dhawan are looking to give the impetus, and it is about time the Delhi lad asserts his domination. Williamson is a serene bloke with a nonchalant behavior that makes him an anomaly in the midst of a high paced tournament known as IPL. SRH could not have asked for a better captain than Williamson who has got his team right and is utilizing the best out of the Indian pitches. Mohali will cater to Kane’s captaincy, and he may tinker a little with his starting XI.

srh_vs_kxip_match_prediction

Shakib Al Hasan is still a world-class all-rounder, and he will be relishing at the thought of big Mohali ground giving his license to bowl traditionally. Manish Pandey hasn’t had the best of starts, but his match-winning fielding is a treat for the sore eyes. However, SRH’s best bet is Billy Stanlake; an innocuous giant who can bowl at 150, and vary his pace at will. A revelation of all sorts. Rashid Khan is a superstar already, and he has got the company of Siddharth Kaul, who is having a great IPL 2018. Bhuvi is always there spearheading the attack.

It is tough to single out key players, but I bet the bowlers will do the trick. Billy Stanlake and Rashid Khan alongside Bhuvi and Kaul can defend any target or can restrict KXIP to a paltry score as well.

SRH Playing XI XI

Shikhar Dhawan, Wriddhiman Saha, Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Shakib Al Hasan, Yusuf Pathan, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Billy Stanlake, Siddharth Kaul

KKR Vs RR Prediction 18th April: Who Will Win today’s Match Between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals?

Welcome to today’s match analysis and match prediction, starting XI, and other stories surrounding the clash between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders, the 15th match of IPL 2018, from Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur.

kkr-vs-rr-prediction-who-will-win

Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals will be pumped up after a 19 runs victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore and will be taking on Kolkata Knight Riders. RR will be grateful to Sanju Samson, who was phenomenal with a sublime knock of 92 and will be looking forward to their captain who chipped in with a 20 ball 36. Buttler needs to see more of the ball and has looked good, but loses his wicket just when he needs to accelerate. The form of Ben Stokes may be a worry, but he has been decent with the ball so far. D Arcy Short wasn’t run out this time, but never got going. Rajasthan may look for other options, while Rahul Tripathi is turning out to play effective cameos at the end, and the role of Gowtham was clearly defined when he priced for Kohli and De Villiers.

Despite not having the best of bowlers in terms of T20, RR is doing well in IPL 10 with Kulkarni and Unadkat leading the line and Ben Laughlin chipping in with his experience. However, the lack of a quality spinner may haunt them as KKR have been toying around with spinners lately. The track of Jaipur hasn’t yielded well for the spinners, so RR will be looking to take that into the equation and play out Narine who has been KKR’s best bowler again. RR should be looking to make the most out of the batting conditions.

They will be banking on Rahane and Samson to come up with the fireworks while Buttler will be raring to go. Unadkat will be handed with the bowling duties, and Laughlin could turn out to be the old horse of IPL 2018.

RR Playing XI Vs Kolkata Knight Riders

Ajinkya Rahane, Heinrich Klassen, Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, Rahul Tripathi, Jos Buttler, Krishnappa Gowtham, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Unadkat, Ben Laughlin, Dhawal Kulkarni

Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders will be pumped up after trumping Delhi Daredevils in a convincing manner, but few flaws have been exposed recently to the opening pair and the form of Uthappa and Karthik has been under the scanner. Much of the onus will be on Nitish Rana who has been a revelation in this IPL 10, albeit he was excellent the previous season as well. IPL 2018 has also seen players like Shubhman Gill get a chance. However, it should be very clear by now; if you want to play Gill gets him up the order else drop him for an explosive finisher.

Narine has always been the best spinner for a long time in T20, and there could be little to doubt his abilities. Kuldeep Yadav got two wickets but may consider himself lucky. The policy of playing three spinners will be a tricky one, but KKR will not tamper with their bowling options.

The key remains Russell, Rana, and Narine. Uthappa needs to step up with the goods, but Lynn has been frantic in IPL 2018 and has looked out of sorts against the spinners. However, an injury to Russell may trigger a change.

Prediction

RCB Vs MI Prediction 17th April: Who Will Win today’s Match Between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians?

RCB Vs MI Prediction 17th April: Who Will Win today’s Match Between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians?

Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore are set to meet each other in an important match at The Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Tuesday. Both high-profile teams haven’t had the best of starts this season and would be looking to inspire a change in fortune and gather some much-needed momentum, which we know is a must to go the way in IPL from past experiences. Let’s take a look at both teams with a coverage of what we can expect from the two struggling giants.

Mumbai Indians

RCB Vs MI Prediction 2018

It is no secret that the defending champions of IPL are struggling. They’ve had the worst possible start to the season losing all three of their opening matches of IPL 2018, finding themselves on the bottom of the table. The big stars of the team from Mumbai haven’t fired yet and The Rohit Sharma-led team would be looking for some inspiration from one of their mighty names. They’ve played two games at home so far, both have gone down to the wire and both have culminated in heartbreak for the Mumbai faithful. The sparkling form of new boy Suryakumar Yadav has been the only silver lining thus far. Mayank Markande has impressed in his debut season but was taken to the cleaners in MI’s last game against the Daredevils. The most disappointing part of MI’s season yet has been the poor form of biggies like Kieron Pollard, The Pandya Brothers and their skipper Rohit Sharma.

Mustafizur Rahman has settled in nicely with his new team and a lot depends on their bowling on Tuesday as they will be up against some of the most destructive batters in the world. Evin Lewis has shown signs of his might with the bat and the Indians seem to have struck the right balance on the top with Suryakumar Yadav and Evan Lewis. The pair registered a quick 100-run partnership against Delhi In the weekend before Tewatia struck twice in quick succession. Their middle-order looks out of sorts as they fail to score quickly in the middle overs, leaving the finishers with too mammoth a task in the death overs. The death bowling of the Indians has looked encouraging and Mustafizur Rahman, Hardik Pandya, and Jasprit Bumrah would like to continue their good work. It is too soon to say that this is a must-win game for Mumbai but the straits are getting direr with every passing game. Mumbai is known to be slow starters in IPL but they would need to pick up their form sooner rather than later if they want to have any hope of clinching the grand trophy for a record 4th time. Our prediction says that Mumbai wouldn’t want to make drastic changes to the starting XI and would want to back their biggies to express themselves. Evan Lewis could take the game away from the Royal Challengers in the span of a few overs whereas Mustafizur’s 4 over would be key to their chances.

Mumbai Indians Playing XI

SuryaKumar Yadav, Evan Lewis, Ishan Kishan ( WK ), Rohit Sharma( C ), Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Akila Dananjaya, Mayank Markhande, Jasprit Bumrah, Mustafizur Rahman.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

RCB_Vs_RR_prediction

Royal Challengers Bangalore might have thought 2018 would finally be their year. It still can be, of course, but the Royal Challengers haven’t had the best of starts to IPL 2018. After losing away to KKR in their opening game, they lost at home to the Royals courtesy of a match-winning knock by Sanju Samson. Sandwiched between them, stands their solitary win against KXIP at home. The all-star top 4 of RCB has been impressive in bits and parts but it is their bowling again that has been letting them down. Umesh Yadav started strongly with an impressive bowling display. However, his confidence must be low after a poor display in the last match with horrid figures of 4-0-59-0. Young lad Khejroliya too has been poor and it would be surprising to see him get another game. Woakes has also been expensive though he has been picking up wickets. Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar form a formidable spin duo and have picked up a few wickets. RCB need to do something about their bowling department, especially their death bowling. They are leaking too many runs, making it difficult for the batsman to complement them.

RCB would be really encouraged with the return to form of their talisman, Virat Kohli after he looked magnificent in his half-century last night. Brendon McCullum hasn’t been at his best and he could make for Corey Anderson or Colin De Grandhomme, either of whom would largely improve the balance of the side. Proteas Quinton De Kock and AB de Villiers have been decent but would like to get a big score under their belt. RCB are heavily dependant on the trio of Kohli, de Villiers and de Kock and would be hoping all three of them start firing. Their middle order, as always is a major concern and players like Mandeep Singh, Washington Sundar, and Pawan Negi need to take responsibility. The addition of Anderson would add some firepower down their batting order along with Chris Woakes who has not performed with his bat yet. RCB need a win to gain some momentum. The skipper Kohli, arguably the best batsman in the world right now is key and could open the innings on Tuesday given McCullum does sit out along with Chahal, who needs to be instrumental against the big-hitters of Mumbai.

RCB Playing XI

Virat Kohli ( C ), Quinton de Kock ( WK ), Mandeep Singh, AB de Villiers, Corey Anderson, Pawan Negi, Chris Woakes, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Siraj, Umesh Yadav

MI Vs RCB Prediction: Who Will Win today?

The clash between two of the most supported teams promises to be a high-voltage encounter. The two teams are evenly matched on paper, with names who can win the match alone, on both sides.

KKR Vs DD Prediction. Who Will today’s match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi DareDevils ?

KKR Vs DD Prediction. Who Will today’s match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi DareDevils ?

Kolkata Knight Riders take on in form Delhi Daredevils at the Mecca of Indian Cricket, the Eden Gardens. IPL 2018 has been a rollercoaster so far with the only SRH looking invincible and the decision of batting second is looking to be the best bet. Let us get underway with the 13th match of IPL 11, and see what both teams have in their kitties.

Kolkata Knight Riders

kkr-vs-dd-match-prediction

Back to back defeats is never a pretty sign even for the optimists, and KKR has been on the receiving end following a dismal bowling performance against CSK, and a below par batting against SRH in front of the home crowd. Questions will be raised following DK’s decision to bat Narine at number 4, where he just couldn’t start off the fireworks and never looked at ease. The story is pretty simple; get Narine in the powerplay and utilize the fielding restrictions. Uthappa hasn’t yet made the scorers busy while Lynn despite his 49 looks peripheral against the spinners. Nitish Rana looks like a player DK can bank on and will be key to their remaining matches. The decision to send Russell ahead of Shubman Gill only piled pressure on the youngster, and after Russell’s recklessness, one can hardly blame the prodigious talent.

Kolkata Knight Riders is not shying away from using their youth department, and the inclusion of Shivam Mavi shows he can be a match winner in the future. Johnson was pelted all over, and Russell looked toothless with the ball. It was again the spin trio of Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla, and KKR talisman Narine who looked to set up SRH for a nervy finish.

KKR will need to sort out their batting line-up and should stick to the policy of Narine opening the game with Lynn. Lynn’s problem against the spin will be exploited by DD, but he is a match winner beyond a shadow of a doubt. IPL 11 hasn’t seen the best out of Uthappa or Dinesh Karthik, and those two will be roaring along. In the spin department, always keep your eye out for Sunil Narine. Mavi may hold on to his place, but DK needs to put more faith in him.

KKR Playing XI against DD

Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik, Shubhman Gill, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Mitchell Johnson/Tom Curran

Delhi Daredevils

dd-vs-kkr-match-prediction

DD will be backing themselves after a stellar performance against Mumbai Indians and will have a lot of positives to hold on to. Jason Roy being the biggest. He looked ominous barring the 3 balls in the last over where he was looking to smoke the ball with only a run remaining to win. Gambhir opening the innings was a good sign, and DD should stick to it if they plan to win IPL 11 and stamp their dominance. Rishabh Pant was terrific with his 47 and was unlucky to miss out on a half-century. Maxwell has shown glimpses, but this is nothing new with him. The decision to field Dan Christian was a wise one as he picked up a couple of wickets, and the burly lad can cream the ball out of the park.

Delhi Daredevils will be immensely satisfied with their bowling performance considering MI scored 84 in the first 6 overs. Shami and Tewatia have looked good, and Boult is always a reliable weapon. DD can look for another spinning option with Nadeem not looking to threaten the batsmen. All in all, IPL 2018 may see a change in fortunes with Gautam Gambhir as their skipper, and he would know every inch of the Eden Gardens and their home support. It will be an emotional comeback for the skipper.

Jason Roy; who else would be the key player. Glenn Maxwell will always be there despite his form. Rishabh Pant is looking better with each game. In the bowling department, Trent Boult and Dan Christian will be of immense use, as the latter has a terrific slower ball up his sleeves.

DD Playing XI against KKR

Jason Roy, Gautam Gambhir, Rishabh Pant, Glenn Maxwell, Shreyas Iyer, Gurkeerat Singh Mann/Manjot Kalra, Dan Christian, Amit Mishra, Rahul Tewatia, Trent Boult, Mohammad Shami

KKR Vs DD Match Prediction: Who will today’s match?

IPL 2018 has favored the team batting second albeit RCB lost to RR yesterday, but a small Eden Gardens outfield paired with a good batting track will favor the side batting second. KKR is favorites to win this match.

CSK Vs KXIP Match Prediction & Analysis 15th April. Who Will Win today?

CSK Vs KXIP Match Prediction & Analysis 15th April. Who Will Win today?

Kings XI Punjab Vs Chennai Super Kings to be played at PCA Stadium, Mohali. Turn to our page and check the weekend mania starting from tomorrow. Match prediction alongside the starting XI of both sides and a coverage of what we can expect.

Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)

kings_xi_punjab_vs_chennai_superkings_prediction

Kings XI Punjab has had a disparate beginning to their IPL 2018 campaigning, beating Delhi Daredevils by 6 wickets in their first match which was at home after which they were beaten away at the Chinnaswamy Stadium by Royal Challengers Bangalore. The Punjab outfit, like many other teams, have a new skipper this time around in the form of Ravichandran Ashwin.

The team, however, is strongly dependant on KL Rahul, who has had a good start to the tournament and would be looking to continue his fine form. They have a handy group of overseas stars, making it difficult for them to settle onto one particular team, which could prove to be both advantageous as well as disadvantageous as the long tournament carries on. Overseas players like Aaron Finch, Marcus Stoinis, Chris Gayle, David Miller and Andrew Tye would like to cement their respective spots in the team, as 17-year old Afghan Mujeeb Ur Rahman is the black horse, having taken the big wicket of Virat Kohli in their previous match.

The experienced Yuvraj Singh returns to the franchise he started his IPL journey as though, he is yet to fire on all cylinders. They have their share of Indian talent as well with the likes of Mayank Agarwal, Axar Patel, Karun Nair and Mohit Sharma. Their strength lies in their bowling which is poised with some elegant variety. Their spin department seems formidable with the unknown Mujeeb, the wily Axar Patel and of course, the ever-consistent Ashwin. Tye, Mohit Sharma, and Stoinis make a reasonable pace trio as well. Their death bowling could prove to be one of their trump cards deep down into the tournament with their bowling coverage. Their middle order looks a bit shaky and players like Karun Nair, Yuvraj Singh, and David Miller would want to get a big score in the coming days. Our prediction is that Miller would reclaim his place with Finch likely to sit this match out. KL Rahul and Ashwin are the players to watch out for in this match. Ashwin, in particular as he knows this CSK side inside out.

KXIP Predicted Playing XI

KL Rahul (wk ), Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair, Yuvraj Singh, David Miller, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin ( c ), Mohit Sharma, Mujeeb Ur Rahman

Chennai Super Kings (CSK)

csk_vs_kxip_match_prediction_2018

Chennai Super Kings have had a solid start to IPL 11. Its almost as if CSK havent missed a beat as they continue from exactly where they left 3 years ago. They are on a run of 2 successive victories with impressive wins against two of the pre-tournament favorites Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders with two magnificent chases one at The Wankhede in what was the opening match of the tournament and the other at their home ground. CSK have retained some of their key players with skipper MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina,  Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo donning canary yellow again. Their opening pair is in sparkling pair comprising Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu too. CSK, however, has been dealt a blow with a calf injury to their all-time top scorer Suresh Raina following the omission of Kedar Jadhav from IPL 2018 due to a bad hamstring injury. Their bowling department is extremely strong once again with some world class inclusions.

They have a trio of top quality and varied spinners comprising the match-winner Imran Tahir, the experienced Harbhajan Singh, and the phenomenal Ravindra Jadeja. Their weakness, however, is their pace department where they lack the firepower of previous seasons. Youngsters Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar have big responsibilities on their shoulders whereas seasoned Shane Watson and Dwayne Bravo are way past their prime. The two veterans can still pack a punch though and if CSK can find a way of incorporating Mark Wood into their line-up, they can become a force to reckon with. Their biggest concern, however, will be to mind able and quick replacements for the injured Raina and Jadhav. It can prove to be a monumental task to replace two players of such quality. Dhoni too hasnt been in the best of forms and would like to get a big score under his belt sooner rather than later. Sam Billings was a revelation last night against the Knight Riders and would likely to continue his good form. Their strength, though is their agility in the field with some of the best fielders in the world which can be so instrumental in this format of the game in saving some crucial runs in important junctures of the match. The key players in the match are Shane Watson and Sam Billings as they would like to continue their impressive form. Our prediction is that Imran Tahir would give way to Mark Wood for this match, keeping the Mohali wicket in mind.

CSK Predicted XI Players

Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Murali Vijay, MS Dhoni ( c & wk ), Sam Billings, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, Harbhajan Singh, Mark Wood, Shardul Thakur.

CSK Vs KXIP Prediction: Who Will today? 

Although they are the away team, CSK start as clear favorites to you, considering their form and potency but KXIP have the home advantage and they have won three of their last four matches at this ground. KXIP would like to take advantage of the major injuries sustained by CSK and cause a major upset this early in the tournament to clinch the all-important 2 points that are up for grabs. Injuries to Suresh Raina and Kedar Jadhav will surely affect CSK.

The toss will once again prove to be crucial as we know how much MSD loves to chase. Ashwin has said that he likes his team to chase too, making the toss all the more important. The Pacers would go a long way in determining who emerges victorious. KXIP Vs CSK in Match 12 of IPL 2018 will definitely be a fascinating encounter. 

Our Pick: Kings XI Punjab is favorites to win.
