Kolkata Knight Riders

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: First Innings Score

KKR put over 70+ runs in the first 6 overs against Kings XI Punjab, they’ll be eyeing for a similar start and should they get one, a score of 170+ looks very much plausible.

KKR’s captain is looking in great form

The captain is firing and looking in terrific touch – Gambhir has probably not looked this much confident in his ability to win matches over the last 4-5 years. Maybe the fact that he’s being noticed by selectors and the fact that he even made it to the Indian team, be it for a short while has given him a great boost; to accelerate on his chances of making it back into the limited overs side. KKR sure will depend a lot on his good form.

Lynn’s absence, Narine takes the onus of opening

The opportunity given to Narine to go out into the middle and open the batting – express himself and not shy away from playing the big shots did wonders for KKR against Kings XI Punjab with both Gambhir and Narine putting up 70+ in first 6 overs, which clearly put the match in KKR’s favour due to which they won quite comfortably in the end. Even with no Lynn, the Narine-Gambhir duo seems to be working.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: First Innings Score

Sunrisers Hyderabad will get over 160+ as David Warner looks to be finding some form and he might well like the bouncy pitch at Eden Garden.

The bowling let down Hyderabad against Mumbai Indians

There’s very little that’ll be worrying Sunrises Hyderabad at the moment for they’ve lost just one match in the tournament thus far and that too not by a huge margin. Having made 158 against Mumbai Indians, in which both their openers in Warner and Dhawan surpassed the mark of 40 – the match was really given away by Hyderabad’s bowlers and the lack of quality bowling in the last 4 overs of the innings – where teams close and win matches in t20’s.

Mohammad Nabi: time to give him a go in IPL 2017

Mustafizur Rahman came back into the side after completing his international duties and was clearly not the same bowler that we saw last year. With 34 runs in his 2.4 overs – Hyderabad will be questioning whether to continue with him or not. The same goes for Ben Cutting – someone who’s not fired yet for SRH; who’ve someone like Mohammad Nabi (all-rounder from Afghanistan) who can bowl quality spin and hit big shots; probably it’ll be a good idea to consider him for playing XI.

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: Match Winning Team

Kolkata Knight Riders will take a lot of confidence from their last match and we make a bold prediction by saying that KKR might just step onto the ground as more confident of the two teams – it always helps to have a win in your last match as that shows in the confidence of the playing XI. It’s one thing to have played well and won and another to have won one-sidedly like KKR won against Kings XI.

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: Key Player

IPL 2017 : Can Gambhir continue his great run of form?

    Gautam Gambhir will be the key player for KKR and their hopes of continuing their winning run. The KKR captain has over 150 runs in the season thus far with 2 scores of 70+. The confidence with which he’s smashing the ball through the off-side highlights how well he’s seeing the ball. We predict he’ll score 30+.
