Rising Pune Supergiant vs Delhi Daredevils at Pune on 11th of April, 2017

Rising Pune Supergiant

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: IPL 2017 First Innings Score

In today’s match prediction for the first innings score, we predict that the Rising Pune Supergiant should get to a total above 160+ as the home advantage will play to their factor and the form of Smith and Stokes will definitely come in handy to put a big total on board.

Change in leadership yet the victory formula still hasn’t come

With a change in leader in Steven Smith from Dhoni, Pune has had a rather mixed start to the tournament, with a win and a loss – the Pune franchise still won’t be sure of a great IPL season ahead as they’re still to get their team balance right which is despite a change in leadership and squad.

The bowling remains a major concern for RPS

After a fabulous win against the Mumbai Indians, the Pune team got an absolute thrashing against the Kings XI Punjab – led by Maxwell. Punjab won the match with 6 wickets to spare and 1 over to go – showing that there was never any kind of tension popping in the Punjab unit to chase a total in excess of 160. The Pune bowling thus looks vulnerable and not a single bowler out of the 6 bowled had their economy at lower than 8 to the over.

Stokes and Smith provide some hope

The form of Stokes along with Smith will, however, give some easy breathing to Pune, who will be hoping for these two to fire against the Daredevils. With Stokes getting a fifty against Punjab and Smith winning the match for Pune against Mumbai Indians with an 80 odd – Pune has some positives.

Delhi Daredevils

The middle-order looks inexperienced

The Daredevils are in absence of De Kock and Duminy who won’t be part of this year’s IPL. One of the major stress points for them thus becomes their middle order which lacks experience. With Samson and Nair being 2 batsmen upon whom pressure to strengthen the middle order remains, it’s also questionable whether all-rounders like Morris and Brathwaite can fire consistently with the bat – as they too are part of the middle order.

Lot of expectation rely on Brathwaite to perform

Brathwaite’s no-show against RCB will raise a few eyebrows in the Daredevils unit as he’s someone from whom match winning performances are expected. With 29 in his 2 overs and just 1 run with the bat – Brathwaite needs to deliver more to make the Daredevils unit much stronger.

Should Pant be made to open with Billings?

Rishabh Pant’s performance against the RCB deserves an applause for it’s not often that you see a 20-year-old taking a match away from a team as established as RCB in IPL.   Daredevils lost by just 15 runs and it was perhaps his innings alone that got them so close to the RCB’s total – he remains an asset in the middle order but it needs to be considered whether he should rather open with Billings at the top, with Mayank Agarwal failing in 2 innings.

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: IPL 2017 First Innings Score

As per our match prediction for the first innings score, the Delhi Daredevils look set for a total in excess of 150+ but it’ll depend on Brathwaite on Morris’ big hitting in the middle overs which will determine whether the Daredevils can get more.

Ben Stokes is proving an asset for Pune – both with the bat and the ball

Ben Stokes, with 50 in his last match against Punjab, Stokes has got the ball rolling in IPL 2017. We predict that he will take a wicket and score 20+ in the match against Daredevils.
