IPL Match Prediction: Delhi Daredevils Vs Gujarat Lions at Kotla on the 4th of May, 2017. Check the complete match preview, toss prediction, playing 11, key player prediction and which team has more chances of winning today’s match?

Gujarat Lions

The very team that impressed one and all in its inaugural season of Vivo IPL in 2016 has had a drastic turn of events coming into the IPL 2017 as it currently finds itself at the bottom of the points table. The position of GL in the points table seems to be unjustified to the talent it possesses and it has somewhat had a similar faith as compared to RCB – both team’s with great match winners in their XI but results haven’t come their way. Gujarat Lions can now play a little more freely and perhaps give opportunities to young lads sitting on the bench and experiment to see if it changes their losing run as their IPL 2017 campaign is pretty much over.

GL Vs DD Match Prediction: First Innings Score

The Gujarat batsmen showed irresponsibility with the bat in their last game against the RPS. Having gotten off to a flying start (courtesy of Ishan Kishan and Brendon McCullum), the middle order batsmen fell like a peck of cards. They’ll look to bat more responsibly in this match, 160+ is what they should easily get.

GL Playing XI Prediction

Kishan, McCullum, Finch, Smith/Roy, Karthik(WK), Jadeja, Faulkner, Sangwan, Thampi, Soni

FORM : The GL got so close to beating RPS but were yet so far. They’ve had close encounters but haven’t been able to close matches. Against RPS – they lost to Ben Stokes and not the side as it was his single-handed 103* that led his side to victory. Had he not fired, probably GL were looking at earning 2 precious points.

Delhi Daredevils

“We didn’t bat intelligently” – were the harsh words used by Delhi Daredevil’s coach in Rahul Dravid after the side’s disastrous batting performance against Kings XI Punjab, bundled out for just 67 runs. The target was easily chased by Punjab in just under 8 overs with 10 wickets in hand. The Delhi side is hoping for a turnaround at their home ground but Vivo IPL 2017 playoffs look distant – as every game from now is a potential eliminator.

FORM : DD beat the 3rd spot holders in SRH, a win that will do a lot of good to their confidence but the consistency factor remains a concern. It’s purely on the young talents in Pant, Nair, Iyer & Billings to make the DD batting strong as Morris and Anderson are bowlers who can bat, not the other way around. Even with the last win included, DD has won just 1 game out of 6 – not a record they’ll be proud of.

DD First Innings Score Prediction

DD will look to get over 150+ in their first innings. The Kotla surface is favorable to their bowlers that are rather slow in pace but make up for it with variations – the GL batting line-up though has some big hitters and therefore 150 becomes absolutely must to put on the board in the first innings.

DD Vs GL Toss Prediction for 4th May

The Gujarat Lions will win the toss and elect to bat first, putting pressure on the relatively inexperienced Delhi batting unit to chase down the total that GL set.

GL Vs DD Match Prediction 4 May 2017: Who’ll win the match?

Gujarat Lions are currently 6th in the points table but they’ve had much competitive last few games, they are simply the favourites also because of the sheer amount of international talent they’ve in their XI. We predict GL should win this battle.

DD Vs GL 4th May: Key Player Prediction

IPL Match Prediction : Brendon McCullum will come blazing for GL
IPL MatPrediction:n : Brendon McCullum will come blazing for GL

Brendon McCullum – having made 45 in the last match against RPS, McCullum was an exception amongst the GL batting unit wherein other batsmen gave away their wicket cheaply while McCullum put a price on his wicket and reached 40+. We predict he will cross 30+ in this match.

Rising Pune Supergiant

The Pune team comes into this match with a one-sided win over the struggling Royal Challengers Bangalore. Having set a modest total of 158 for RCB to chase, the Pune bowlers destroyed RCB’s ‘strong’ batting unit that again failed to fire, with the exception of their captain Kohli  – who had 55 to his individual tally in team’s total of 96, another shocking loss for RCB; yet another win nonetheless for Pune that are now gearing up to cement a spot in top 4.

IPL 2017 Prediction : First Innings Score –

Taking into consideration the form of Pune batsmen, a score in excess of 150+ looks very much likely against GL.

IPL 2017 Prediction : – Predicted XI : Rahane, Tripathi, Smith*, DuPlessi/Stokes, Dhoni (WK ), Tiwary, Christian, Washington Sundar, Thakur, Unadkat & Imran Tahir

Gujarat Lions

GL are coming into this match after having played an absolute nail bitter against the Mumbai Indians in their last match. GL’s match against MI went into the super over with both team’s finishing at equal score of 153 after their respective 20 overs. The super over however was a tale not suited to the performance GL gave all through the night as it was a dominant MI’s batting and Bumrah’s nerve-less bowling that seized victory for MI with 6 runs (having set 13 runs for GL to chase). Gujarat Lions however wont be dejected with the loss as they put up a valiant fight, defending a modest total set by their batsmen – more so in scenario where Finch, McCullum and Raina all failed on the day and yet GL came out as a great fighting unit.

IPL 2017 Prediction : First Innings Score –

150+ is what Gujarat Lions managed in their last game, we predict this match should see them crossing the 160 runs mark.

IPL 2017 Prediction : – Predicted XI : Kishan, McCullum, Raina*, Finch, Jadeja, Karthik(WK), Faulkner, Tye, Thampi, Irrfan Pathan, Soni

IPL 2017 Prediction : TOSS

The RPS will win the toss and elect to field first. Their batting is their strength area and the form that their batsmen have shown – particularly the stars for them this season in Tripathi & Smith along with a few good knocks from MSD, Manoj Tiwary and Rahane makes them a strengthened chasing side.

IPL 2017 Prediction : Match Winning Team

The RPS come into this match after having closed a one-sided encounter against the RCB. The Gujarat Lions though having lost their last match are still not a side you can take for lightly – as they showed with a  fighting performance against the Mumbai Indians, who are currently 2nd in the points table. The home factor however makes Pune the favourites to win this one.

IPL 2017 Prediction : Key Player Prediction

IPL 2017 : GL's batting depends heavily on Raina hitting form
IPL 2017 : GL’s batting depends heavily on Raina hitting form

Suresh Raina – the GL captain misfired in the last match and went out cheaply for just 1 off 3 balls. Hoping to get his side some much needed momentum, he will step into the ground with fire in his belly to perform. We predict he will cross 30+.

Gujarat Lions

GL is starting to justify it’s potential

The Gujarat Lions unit is starting to find their feet in the IPL 2017 and beginning to play in accordance with the potential they showcase on paper. Having given an absolute dominant performance against the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last game, with bowlers rising up to the occasion and restricting RCB to just 134; while the batsmen took down the target with relative ease and ensuring a win in just under 14 overs with 7 wickets in hand – Finch top scoring with 72.

GL Vs MI Prediction: Playing 11

Kishan, McCullum, Raina*, Finch, Jadeja, Karthik(WK), Faulkner, Tye, Thampi, Singh, Soni

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians – a match they wouldn’t wanna lose

The Mumbai Indians are appearing to be a force to be reckoned with in this season of the IPL. It’s uncanny how different their start to this year’s IPL has been as usually this is the point of the tournament where MI start to accelerate and are used to finding themselves in a position similar to their opponents for this game i.e. GL, which are currently at the 6th spot in the points table and every game for them counts. On the flip side, while the Mumbai Indians are pretty much a strong prospect for the top 4 right now, they would want to seize a spot in the top 2 for the end of the league stage and matches against the teams at the bottom of the table, like GL thus become all the more important. MI is currently at the 2nd spot in the points table and lost their last match to RPS by 3 runs.

MI Vs GL Prediction: Playing 11

Patel, Buttler, Rana, Rohit Sharma*, Karn Sharma, Pollard, Pandya, Harbhajan Singh, McClenghan, Johnson

MI Vs GL Match Prediction: Who’ll win today?


The Mumbai Indians are clearly the stronger of the two sides but GL can’t be ruled out from this one as their individual performers can change the course of the match on their own if they get going on the given day. MI will though start as favorites to win.

MI Vs GL: Key Player Prediction

IPL : Will Rana again step up to the occasion for MI?
Prediction:n  : Rana will again step up to the occasion for MI

Rana will be the key for Mumbai Indians. He’s been shining with the bat for the franchise and his role in the middle order is absolutely essential in giving strength to MI’s prospect of reaching big scores or chasing down big scores. We predict he will cross 30+.

RCB-Vs-GL-Match-Prediction-Who-Will-Win-todays-match
IPL: It’s the 7th spot holders in GL vs the 8th spot holders in RCB

Gujarat Lions

GL Vs RCB Match Prediction: First Innings Score

Gujarat Lions failed to chase 188 in their last match, reaching to just 162 at loss of 7 wickets in their 20 overs. At M Chinnaswamy in Bangalore, as per our IPL 2017 First Innings Score Prediction, 160+ is the least GL need to reach if they bat first.

GL would want to make the most of playing the 8th spot holders in RCB

Gujarat Lions is battling with poor form and lack of intent shown by their top-star overseas players. GL – in spite of having all the talent has lacked the firepower to go out into the middle and win matches. It’s not often that you see a team with 2 of its batsmen in IPL’s Top 5 Orange Cap player’s list i.e. Raina & McCullum and yet be at the 7th spot in the team’s points table. The Gujarat Lions face the struggling 8th spot holders in RCB – a side that has had a similar faith to theirs; having all the big star players and yet not delivering on the prominence of winning.

GL Vs RCB Playing 11 Prediction:

McCullum, Finch, Raina*, Karthik(WK), Jadeja, Smith, Nath, Tye, Thampi, Agarwal & Singh/Irrfan Pathan

Royal Challengers Bangalore

RCB Vs GL Match Prediction: First Innings Score

RCB’s batting can never be ruled out to fire big. Star players like Kohli, Gayle, and Villiers need to be backed to turn things around for the franchise. We predict 160+ will be easily achieved by Royal Challengers Bangalore in this match.

RCB – a side desperate to find form matching its talent

The 10th edition of Vivo IPL has probably seen the worst start to the tournament from RCB in the 10 years of it’s running. Finding themselves at the 8th spot in the points table, the side clearly doesn’t justify it’s performance as opposed to its talent on paper. No other batting unit in IPL is probably as dangerous as RCB’s top 3 – Kohli, Gayle & Villiers. Yet, the 3 together haven’t got going for RCB yet and they’ll only be hoping for a turnaround against GL. RCB’s faith couldn’t be made any harder since the last match was washed out, which now leaves RCB with 6 matches left and all 6 to win – in order to qualify for the top 4; a target that won’t be easy to achieve.

RCB VS GL Playing 11 Prediction:

Kohli*, Gayle, Villiers, Mandeep Singh, Kedar Jadhav(WK), Binny, Negi, Chahal, Badree, Mills & Aravind.

RCB Vs GL Match Prediction: Who’ll win today’s Match?





RCB has an advantage due to the home conditions. At M Chinnaswamy, RCB will feel much more confident as the boundaries are short which enables their big strike players to deal in boundaries and keep the run rate soaring high. In short, RCB will win today.

IPL 2017 Prediction for Royal Challengers Bangalore Vs Gujarat Lions Key Player Prediction

IPL : Devastating McCullum can be lethal to RCB's weak form
IPL: Devastating McCullum can be lethal to RCB’s weak form

Brendon McCullum – he’ll be popping his eyes gazing at the short boundaries of Bangalore. A big strike player like him can easily smash the ball rolling out of the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. We predict he’ll race to 30+.

KXIP Vs GL Prediction: Kings XI Punjab Vs Gujarat Lions – Who will win?

KXIP Vs GL Prediction: Kings XI Punjab Vs Gujarat Lions – Who will win?

IPL Match Prediction 2017: Kings XI Punjab versus the Gujarat Lions at Rajkot on the 23rd of April, 2017. Let’s check out who’ll win today’s match? The prediction for first innings score and the key player prediction.

Gujarat_Vs_Punjab_Prediction
IPL 2017 : Can Gujarat Lions win their 2nd game on a trot or will Kings XI Punjab break their 3 consecutive losing streak?

Kings XI Punjab

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: First Innings Score

Kings XI Punjab showed good form with the bat in their last match – having made 198 in their first innings. They will hope for a similar show with the bat, aiming to put a score in excess of 160+ in the first innings.

Kings XI Punjab face the challenge of keeping themselves alive in IPL 2017

After having started IPL 2017 on a winning note, Punjab is now facing a dire situation of maintaining themselves in the top 4 of the points table – having had 3 consecutive losses in the tournament, the last one being an absolute thrashing faced against the Mumbai Indians.

The inability to contain runs or take wickets of Punjab bowlers is costing the team

Kings XI Punjab batted first and put 198 on the board against the Mumbai Indians – a score that gave Punjab a great chance of winning the match but it wasn’t to be; due to extremely poor show of bowling from the Punjab bowlers; all of whom went at over 10 the over, with 3 bowlers going over 13 to the over. The bowling performance was so dreary that Mumbai Indians chased down the target of 199 with 27 balls to spare.

Gujarat Lions

KXIP Vs GL Match Prediction: First Innings Score

Gujarat Lions has a strong batting line-up that consists of players like McCullum, Raina, Finch and Karthik. In order to have a shot at victory, Gujarat needs to put at least 160 on the board.

Gujarat Lions – individual performances, not team efforts

Similar to Punjab’s fate in the IPL 2017, Lions too has had a rather unimpressive last 2 weeks in the tournament. Having a side that can easily beat any strong XI in IPL 2017; Gujarat has had individual performances stand out but the whole team has collectively not managed to seek a winning run for their side and that’s precisely why they’re at the bottom of the points table.

A victory at last for GL

The Gujarat Lions have though found some respite this season with a win in their last match against KKR – chasing in excess of 180 runs. Having gotten off to a quick start with 50 runs in 4 overs (losing just 1 wicket that of Finch – who had already gotten the team off to a quick start). The Lions chase was hampered due to rain, subsequent to which a well settled McCullum fell and Karthik followed him to the pavilion as well. But, as we pointed out –  IPL 2017 for GL has been about individual performances and this night belonged to their captain in Raina – whose 84 guided the team to a much-needed win.

Who’ll win today? Today’s Match Prediction:

The Kings XI Punjab will come into the match with the intention of closing their losing streak and making the most of playing the team at the bottom of the points table in GL.

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: Key Player Prediction

IPL 2017 : Can the 'big show' fire against GL?
IPL 2017: Can the ‘big show’ fire against GL?

Glenn Maxwell – he blistered away boundaries against the Mumbai Indians and was pivotal to have taken the Kings XI Punjab’s run rate to over 10, he’s the captain of the side and should his bat fire against GL – the Kings XI Punjab can again reach a total above 180+. We predict he will cross 30 run mark.

IPL 2017 Last Match Accurate Prediction from PredictX

We had accurately predicted that Hashim Amla will fire for Punjab against the Mumbai Indians.

We had accurately predicted that the match against KKR will be an ideal stage for Raina to fire big and that’s just what transpired, with his 84. Check that prediction here.

KKR Vs GL – IPL Prediction: Who Will Win Today? Kings XI Punjab OR Gujarat Lions?

KKR Vs GL – IPL Prediction: Who Will Win Today? Kings XI Punjab OR Gujarat Lions?

IPL Prediction 2017 for Kolkata Knight Riders vs Gujarat Lions at Eden Garden, Kolkata – IPL 2017 Clash on 21st of April, 2017.

Kolkata Knight Riders

Today’s Match Prediction: First Innings Score

The batting unit for KKR is in terrific form with Gambhir having held the orange cap (most runs in tournament) for a short while, Uthappa coming good against DD with a 69, Manish Pandey’s form and Yusuf Pathan’s striking back into the runs against DD with a 59– they’ll look to get 160+.

Even with no Lynn, KKR is still going strong

Coming from a victory against the Delhi Daredevils – a match that they could have easily lost as they needed 8 runs off 3 balls to clinch the win but due to the excellence of Manish Pandey; who showed terrific composure under a pressure situation, the KKR side managed to come out as a winner against DD at Kotla. The win put them at 1st spot in the points table and it seems KKR has found the much required momentum, inspite of suffering the huge blow of losing Chris Lynn due to an injury which he suffered while fielding earlier in IPL 2017.

KKR’s winning due to its batting, the bowling remains a slight concern

One aspect where KKR will be keen to improve is their bowling. Given, Narine is one bowler who has bowled really well for KKR in the season thus far, usually going below 6 to the over but it’s the foreign talent in Woakes, Grand De Homme and Coulter Nile that are yet to show wicket taking abilities to not only put a break on the run flow of the opposition but contribute in result changing factors with bowling performances that win matches for KKR as it is quite fair to say that KKR’s wins are largely due to their batting and not bowling.

Gujarat Lions

Today’s Match Prediction : First Innings Score

Gujarat Lions will be desperately hoping that their key batsmen McCullum, Finch & Raina fire – 160+ is what they’ll ideally hope to get.

Gujarat Lions has failed to build momentum

A side that was by far one of the favourites prior to the start of IPL 2017 has suffered a very major disappointment in terms of how it has played on the pitch as opposed to the talent that it has with itself in the XI and on the bench. Having beaten Pune, Gujarat Lions would have hoped to continue the winning run against Mumbai Indians but it wasn’t to be as they were given a serious beating – losing by 6 wickets in their 2nd last match, failing to capitalize on the victory from their previous match.

The Gujarat Lions bowlers are unable to contain opposition’s run flow

Similar expectations would have risen against an equally troubled side in RCB – that too has star players but that wasn’t translating into wins but Lions lost to them as well and by 21 runs, making it their 2nd loss on a trot. The real concern for Gujarat relies on their bowling and against RCB – 4 of GL’s total of six bowlers bowled went over 9 to the over; in t20’s a team simply cannot win matches when bowlers aren’t containing runs and this is just the case with Gujarat Lions.

Today’s Match Prediction, Who’ll win today between KKR VS GL Match?

With form of the team and individual players into consideration– KKR will step into the match as more confident of the two sides, they’re after all no.1 in the points table while the Gujarat Lions find themselves at the lower half (bottom 4). KKR should clinch this and maintain their winning momentum.

IPL 2017 Match Prediction : Key Player Prediction

IPL Prediction 2017 : It is an ideal stage for Raina to come firing for GL
IPL Prediction 2017 : It is an ideal stage for Raina to come firing for GL

Suresh Raina – the Gujarat Lions captain has thus far not had the kind of IPL season that he would’ve imagined. The team has been badly thrashed by opponents – specifically the bowling and therefore he as captain has more responsibility to change things around and we believe he can with the talent he has. He should score in excess of 30+.

Gujarat Lions Vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Prediction. Who’ll Win?

Gujarat Lions Vs Royal Challengers Bangalore at Rajkot on the 18th of April, 2017. Let us find out who’ll win today’s match?

IPL 2017 Prediction : Can Gujarat outweigh RCB?
IPL 2017 Prediction: Can Gujarat outweigh RCB?

Gujarat Lions

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: First Innings Score

With the form of McCullum, the Gujarat Lions will be looking at a total in excess of 160+.

McCullum has hit form

Brendon McCullum’s form has hit strong and peaking at the right time for the Gujarat Lions and this ensures that they’re able to get off to a good start and capitalize in the initial 6 powerplay overs – exactly what they did against the Mumbai Indians. Making a strong 66 off 44 balls, McCullum guided his side to a strong first innings total of 176 in the first innings – the Gujarat Lions crossed 160 runs in their first innings, as we predicted in our match prediction.

Kartik’s fiery innings guided GL to strong first innings total

A good start from McCullum was forwarded into a strong first innings total by end over accelerations from Dinesh Karthik’s bat– who made 48 off 26 balls; smashing 2 fours and 2 sixes. The batting gave no reasons for concern for the Gujarat Lions – as a total in excess of 170+ gave them a great chance of squaring up Mumbai Indians and squeezing a win.

The bowling let GL down against MI

The Lions were, however, let down deeply by their bowling – which very well won them their last match. Andrew Tye – who grabbed a five-for in the last match was again impressive with 2 wickets, giving away 34 runs in his 4 overs but the other bowlers had very little to show. None of the Gujarat bowlers went at below 8 to the over and that gave the advantage of the Mumbai Indians of scoring on every bowler – winning with 3 balls to spare, with Rohit Sharma; the Mumbai Indians captain scoring 30+ as we predicted. Having won their last match against RPS, Gujarat is again hit in the points table by this loss.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: First Innings Score

It’s appalling that in spite of having all the talent, RCB batting unit failed to chase a modest total of 162 versus RPS. They’ll hope to get to 150 in this clash and should Kohli and Villiers get going, they’ll have no trouble reaching there.

The opening combination is a pickle for RCB

This IPL season perhaps marks the first for RCB where they’re having immense trouble finding the right opening combination. The form of Gayle has become a reason for massive concern; with him being dropped for the second time from the side in the short duration of 2 weeks into the IPL 2017. The losing streak for RCB just isn’t ending and this is probably because the Gayle storm seems to be missing from the RCB – much to the disappointment of the fans, who have been let down by the team’s dismal performance in IPL 2017 thus far.

Star players present – star performance awaited

A 29 run loss against RPS – a side that was at the bottom of the points table means that RCB is now going to have a very tough time to make it to the top of the table. The coming back into the team of Virat Kohli and Villiers has also not resulted in match wins and this will concern RCB the most – with star power with them on paper, the results just aren’t there – the form of their star players somehow is lacking match winning ability, at least in the tournament thus far.

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: Match Winning Team

The Gujarat Lions will back themselves to beat the struggling RCB unit, which has failed to win on their home ground and with this being an away game at Rajkot – Gujarat Lions will believe they have got a great chance of winning this crucial clash.

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: Key Player

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

Virat Kohli – the Indian & RCB skipper can’t be put away from winning for too long, he’s bound to fire and this might just be the match. We predict him scoring over 30+.

MI vs GL: IPL 2017 – First Innings Score Prediction

MI vs GL: IPL 2017 – First Innings Score Prediction

IPL 2017 Prediction for the first innings score between Mumbai Indians and Gujarat Lions, to be played on the 16th of April, 2017 at Mumbai.

Mumbai Indians

IPL 2017 : First Innings Score

Having had a rather poor outing from their opening batsmen and middle order in the last match (with exception of Pollard and Pandya brothers), the Mumbai Indians will hope to get over 150+.

Mumbai Indians showed great discipline with the ball against RCB

After a rather shaken start to the tournament, the Mumbai Indians have bounced back and fought their way to 2 victories in their last 2 matches. They’d have really taken some heart from the win that they achieved against the strengthened Royal Challengers Bangalore side that had the likes of Gayle, Kohli & Villiers playing for them. The Mumbai bowlers did a tremendous job of restricting the opposition to a mere 141 which it seemed was quite achievable at the start.

Pollard is back firing for MI

With the Mumbai Indians batting tested in all their matches thus far, the challenge that their middle order had against RCB was however quite different. With 5 wickets falling with less than 50 runs on the board; Kieron Pollard stepped upto the challenge and made a thunderous 70 in less than 50 balls to guide his side to a phenomenal victory against the RCB.

The top-order looks to be a concern

Mumbai would’ve gained poise from the win against RCB but the top order that includes Buttler, Parthiv, Rohit Sharma has failed to mesmerize the fans with their performance with the bat thus far – specifically Rohit, who hasn’t looked the sheer elegant player that we know him to be; his form is absolutely crucial to Mumbai continuing their winning run.

Gujarat Lions

IPL 2017 : First Innings Score

Gujarat Lions will be gunning for McCullum and Smith to continue their form from the last match (putting 95 runs for the first wicket). With both of them in form, the Lions look likely to make a first innings total in excess of 160.

Gujarat Lions are back to winning

With 2 losses in succession before their last match against Pune, the Gujarat Lions were desperate for a win and they got one against the Rising Pune Supergiant. What worked in favour of them was the fact that they won the toss and had the liberty to bat second and know the score that their quality batsmen had to chase; for Lions have clearly been let down by their bowling unit.

Andrew Tye – making Lions look a more strengthened side

As we suggested and predicted in our last report for Gujarat Lions, they needed to get an overseas bowler into their side instead of playing an additional overseas batsman and they did just that – Tye replaced Jason Roy in the playing XI. The move did wonders as Tye grabbed a hat-trick and with it a 5 wicket hall – making Lions look a much strengthened bowling unit.

The Gujarat Lions showed a much-strengthened team performance in their last match as opposed to a single man show of Pollard from Mumbai Indians- thus we predict Gujarat Lions should win this.

13th Match: Gujarat Lions vs Rising Pune Supergiant at Rajkot, 14th of April, IPL 2017

Gujarat Lions

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: First Innings Score

The Gujarat Lions will get over 160+. With someone as explosive as McCullum opening the batting, it’s probably the right idea to also utilize Dwayne Smith to his fullest potential as an opener or rather not play him at all and get an overseas bowler.

The Gujarat Lions run of losing cannot be explained

2-0, the figure appallingly doesn’t indicate 2 wins in 2 matches for the Lions but rather 2 in 2 losses. A side that has all the talent on paper has somehow not shown the same talent that appears on paper, on the field. Starting from McCullum at the top and Finch, Raina, Smith in the middle order – it really is a pickle how Lions are still not able to utilize this talent into a match winning formula.

The bowling unit needs some serious overhaul

The Lions has a major concern in form of their bowling unit. While it seems only a time factor until their batting unit clicks and starts putting big totals on board, the bowling looks weak and lacks the firepower to stop the flow of runs or take consistent wickets. Faulkner and Tye remained out of the side in Lions the last match as the team management opted to play 4 overseas batsmen – a strategy that’s clearing not working.

Rising Pune Supergiant

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: First Innings Score

The Rising Pune Supergiant are coming from an absolute thrashing against the Delhi Daredevils, 150+ will be what they’ll be aiming at.

Bowled out for 108, Pune’s star power failed to gaze a winning opportunity

After Smith’s heroics in the first match against the Mumbai Indians, the Rising Pune Supergiant has been hit hard with 2 successive losses. Their last match against the Delhi Daredevils exposed the weakness in the Pune batting order – that depends heavily on Steve Smith, who missed out in the match due to an illness. Bundled out for 108 on a pitch where Delhi scored 205 and Samson scored a ton, the Pune unit will be bamboozled by the poor show.

Pune need Smith to be back fit & lead the side

The returning of Steve Smith is key to Pune bouncing back. Not only is he a key batsman for the franchise, he’s also their captain and tends to lead by example. Smith’s absence showed in Pune’s improper handling of resources in their last match against DD, in which they were surprisingly captained by Rahane and not MS Dhoni.

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: Who’ll win this match?

With 2 sides that are equally desperate for a win, the Gujarat Lions look stronger of the two on paper. The Lions should wrap this in their favor subject to them performing as per the talent they have on their side and not what we’ve come to see in their last 2 matches.

Suresh Raina will be desperate to tick off a win in IPL 2017

Suresh Raina – playing against some of his ex-team mates from CSK, Raina will be keen to lead his side by example as their captain. Raina had a good start to the IPL but looked out of sync in Lions’ last match, we predict he will score in excess of 30+ in the match.
