IPL Match Prediction 2017 : RCB vs KKR – 7 May

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kolkata Knight Riders Match Prediction, scheduled at M Chinaswamy, Bengaluru on the 7th 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?

Royal Challengers Bangalore

The nightmarish run for RCB just isn’t ending in this season of Vivo IPL. In the tournament thus far, RCB has just 2 wins to it’s name out of 12 matches played, losing shockingly 9 of their 12 games. A side that has all the talent that can deliver on the field has somehow failed to create a group that is able to work together and translate potential into performance in the middle. It’s hard to believe this is the very side that reached finals last year as their most recent loss against Punjab – chasing a mere 139 proved too much as RCB was bundled out for just 119.

IPL Match Prediction 2017 : First Innings Score

Taking into consideration the horrible out of sorts looking RCB batting unit that is even unable to put in excess of 130+ on the board, we predict they’ll be quite content if they can reach 130+ in their first innings.

IPL Match Prediction 2017 : Predicted XI – Mandeep Singh, Gayle/Head, Kohli*, Villiers, Jadhav(WK), Watson, Negi, Aravind, Badree, Choudhary, Chahal

 

Kolkata Knight Riders

Currently at the 2nd spot in the points table, KKR will see this match as the ideal one to win and seal a birth in the playoffs. Having lost Lynn early in the tournament and having faced problems initially with form of their middle order – namely Surya Kumar Yadav & Uthappa, the last 3 weeks has been impeccable for the franchise as Uthappa and the captain himself in Gambhir have risen to the occasion and shown great form. KKR did lose to RPS in their last game but didn’t go down without fighting – they’ve a tremendous opportunity here to make it to the playoffs.

IPL Match Prediction 2017 : First Innings Score

KKR has been generally positive with the bat this season. We predict a score in excess of 160+ is quite achievable for them, if they bat first against RCB.

IPL 2017 : Predicted XI – Narine, Gambhir*, Jackson(WK), Pandey, Pathan, Grandhomme, Kuldeep Yadav, Woakes, Coulter-Nile, Umesh Yadav

 

IPL Match Prediction 2017 : Toss

KKR will win the toss and elect to chase. Kolkata Knight Riders has had a great run this IPL in chasing. Their bowlers tend to feel under the pump while defending a total and thus KKR will look to chase if they win the coin toss.

IPL Match Prediction 2017: Match Winning Team

Kolkata Knight Riders should seize victory in this without much problem. RCB is looking totally out of sync and they’ll be hoping that they can put up a valiant fight against the KKR – which doesn’t seem likely as the whole RCB star-studded batting unit is looking out of form and coming back to form against KKR wont be easy.

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

Virat Kohli – can the captain rise up to the occasion! It’s the very question that RCB fans would be asking from their skipper in Kohli. We know him to be a fighter and someone who performs just when needed. We predict he will score 30+ in this key fixture.

KKR-VS-RPS-Match-Prediction

Kolkata Knight Riders

The Kolkata Knight Riders side had a rather disappointing loss against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, unable to chase down the total of 210 as set by SRH. The score even though looks plenty to chase down, the pitch at Hyderabad was a batting paradise wherein correct application from KKR’s top-order could’ve resulted in a win but failure of the top order amidst unexpected showers that came in during a crucial phase of the chase – wherein KKR were 50+ in just over 6 overs going at 9.00 to the over with 1 wicket down, the untimely rain added to the result of KKR’s 3rd loss in IPL 2017.

KKR VS RPS: First Innings Score Prediction

The KKR team is back at their home ground and will be keen to put some crucial first innings runs on the board- preferably over 160+.

KKR Playing XI 

Narine, Gambhir*, Uthappa(WK), Pandey, Pathan, Grand De Homme, Woakes, Jackson, Coulter Nile, Umesh Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav

Rising Pune Supergiant

The Pune team comes into this match after a phenomenal chase in their last game against the Gujarat Lions – all thanks to a single-handed show from Ben Stokes, the true firepower in the Pune ranks this season. Stokes first century in the IPL, a 103* to be precise was enough to guide Pune to the finishing line and get another crucial win under their belt.

RPS Vs KKR: First Innings Score Prediction

After having chased 150+ in their last game and this in spite of Tripathi, Smith, Rahane & Dhoni not firing, one can expect a better show from these star players in this match. 160+ is very easily achievable for Pune at Kolkata.

RPS Playing XI

Rahane, Tripathi, Smith*, Dhoni(WK), Stokes, Tiwary, Christian, Sundar, Unadkat, Thakur, Tahir

RPS Vs KKR Toss Prediction

The Kolkata Knight Riders will win the toss and elect to chase – something that they’ve done quite successfully at their home ground this Vivo IPL 2017.

RPS Vs KKR Match Prediction. Who’ll win today?


Kolkata Knight Riders are the favorites to win this purely on the merit of their home record this season. Beating KKR in Kolkata isn’t going to be easy, the pitch is highly favorable to their set of fast bowlers and delivers consistently on quick pace – with the ball coming nicely onto the bat, which works for the KKR batsmen.

KKR Vs RPS: Key Player Prediction

IPL : Smith's form is pivotal to Pune's chance of victory against table-topper KKR.
IPL: Smith’s form is pivotal to Pune’s chance of victory against table-topper KKR.

Steve Smith – he’s a player made for the big matches and Pune will need him to fire if they aspire to beat the table-topper in KKR. Smith’s form with the bat enables quick run making for Pune in the initial overs making it easier for the middle order big hitters in Dhoni, Stokes & Christian to make the most of a good start and guide the team to a big total.

IPL 2017 Prediction: Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Sunrisers Hyderabad at Hyderabad on the 30th of April. Let’s check the match preview, key player prediction, playing 11, team form, toss prediction and who’s going to win this match according to our analysis.

SRH-vs-KKR-match-prediction-who-will-win
Image: IndianExpress.

SRH Vs KKR Toss Prediction

KKR will be keen to chase while SRH might want to bat first. We predict KKR will win the toss and get to do what they do best – chase down the score that SRH set.

Kolkata Knight Riders

KKR – The side to beat in IPL 2017

The dream run for KKR continued against the Delhi Daredevils as they cruised to chasing 161 in just 16 overs –further strengthening their NRR (Net Run Rate) and the prospect of finishing in the top 2 after the end of the league stage. The biggest takeaway for Kolkata Knight Riders in the last few matches has been the fact that their 2 key-most batsmen in Gambhir and Uthappa have found terrific form. Both the batsmen crossed 60+ in the last match and KKR’s captain in Gambhir has again got hold of the orange cap.

IPL 2017 : First Innings Score Prediction

KKR has shown tremendous skills with the bat in their last 2 games – chasing to perfection via the in-form performance of Uthappa and Gambhir. They should reach a total above 160+.

KKR Vs SRH Playing 11

Predicted XI – Gambhir*, Narine, Uthappa(WK), M Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, S Jackson, Grand de Homme, C Woakes, Coulter-Nile, U Yadav, K Yadav

Sunrisers Hyderabad

Hyderabad are in prospect to enter top 2 in the points table

The Sunrisers Hyderabad will be geared up for the challenge of taking on the table toppers in KKR. They too have found great form running in the tournament across the last few matches –with exception of a few losses. SRH depends heavily on their openers in Warner and Dhawan – who push their side to a strong start in the initial few overs, just like they did against the Kings XI Punjab; putting over 100 for the first wicket in 10 overs, laying down the foundation for a  score in excess of 200+. Their fixture against KKR is vital for them to seize a place in the top 2 of the points table.

IPL 2017 : First Innings Score Prediction

The dynamic duo of Warner-Dhawan at the top, followed by the in-form Williamson has made SRH a even more dangerous batting unit as opposed to before (when Henriques was coming at 1st down). They should put over 160+ on the board, if they bat first.

SRH Vs KKR Playing 11 Prediction

Warner*, Dhawan, Williamson, Y Singh, M Henriques, DJ Hooda, NV Ojha†, B Kumar, A Nehra, S Kaul, Rashid Khan.

While both these teams are quite neck and neck in terms of balance and individual players that can turn the game on its head with their exceptional skills – it’s the KKR that are the favorites to win, purely in their most recent form; winning 3 games that have seen one-sided KKR dominance.

IPL 2017 Prediction: The KKR captain will continue his star run for the franchise.

Gautam Gambhir – the KKR captain remains the key player for the team. Currently the orange cap holder and someone who’ll like the slow surface of Hyderabad that is spin-friendly and with him being someone who’s very strong in playing spin, he’s vital to getting KKR off to a good start. We predict he will cross 30+.

kkr-vs-dd-match-prediction
IPL 2017: Will KKR’s winning run continue against DD?

Delhi Daredevils

DD Vs KKR Match Prediction: First Innings Score

The Delhi side will be skeptical of the pitch at Eden Gardens; they wouldn’t want to repeat the same mistake as done by the RCB. The Eden Gardens pitch is no more a batting paradise and being watchful in initial overs is the key. 130+ is achievable.

The lack of experienced players is troubling Delhi Daredevils

After having gained some form in the IPL 2017, the DD side has slipped in the points table and is currently placed at the 7th spot. There are varieties of reasons why Delhi Daredevils isn’t in the top 4 anymore, one of which is – they’ve been unable to win close encounters and it’s probably due to the lack of experienced players in their side. While the onus on young players to perform gives them a stage to showcase their talent; it also puts immense pressure on their shoulders – something the DD management is helpless to solve as there aren’t any experienced t20 veterans that are warming the bench.

DD Vs KKR Playing 11

Samson, Tare, Nair, Iyer, Anderson, Pant (WK), Rabada, Morris, Cummins, Mishra and Khan *

Kolkata Knight Riders

KKR Vs DD Match Prediction: First Innings Score

KKR side has found terrific form and each of their top order batsmen has had at least 1 match where they’ve shone with the bat. 140+ is what KKR will be aiming at.

Dominant KKR look unbeatable

The Kolkata Knight Riders are coming into this match with 2 rather one-sided clashes against RCB and RPS respectively. They cruised to victory against RPS with Uthappa and Gambhir putting over 100 runs for the 2nd wicket. RPS looked rather helpless to get either Uthappa or Gambhir out and when they did, it was too late. In the end, it was a relatively easy win for KKR as we’ve predicted – which is now at the 1st spot in the points table. Their captain in Gambhir has crossed 300 runs in Vivo IPL 2017 and is currently the orange cap holder.

KKR Vs  DD: Playing 11 Prediction:

Narine, Gambhir*, Uthappa (WK), Pandey,  Pathan, Yadav, Grand Homme, Coulter Nile, Woakes, Chawla, Umesh.

KKR Vs DD Winning Prediction. Who will win today’s match?



KKR has to its name 2 thunderous wins in 2 matches – they look like THE side to beat this IPL season, probably the strongest now in the contention for the IPL 2017 trophy. It will be immensely hard for DD to beat them and while they did come close to doing so at Kotla, repeating the same in Kolkata’s own den i.e. Eden Garden won’t come easy.

IPL 2017 : Key Player Prediction

IPL 2017 : Coulter Nile will be gearing to get into wickets against DD
IPL 2017: Coulter Nile will be gearing to get into wickets against DD

Nathan Coulter Nile – keep an eye out for this ‘ox’ bowler from KKR, defined so by their own captain in Gambhir. Nile ripped apart the RCB top-order in the match that’s probably going to be the most talked about from IPL 2017, the very match where a strong batting unit like RCB was bundled out for just 49 – with Nile grabbing 3. We predict he’ll grab 2 wickets in this match, returning to IPL 2017 after being rested against RPS.

KKR-VS-RPS-Match-Prediction
Prediction IPL 2017 : Will an in-form KKR ruin RPS’ newly found winning form?

Rising Pune Supergiant

RPS Vs KKR Prediction: First Innings Score

The batting is clicking for Pune and one gets the feeling that a big knock for Steve Smith is around the corner. As per our IPL 2017 Prediction: Pune will be aiming 150+.

RPS has got into the winning ways

Coming from an epic win against the table-topper in Mumbai Indians, the RPS has found some winning momentum at last in IPL 2017 and there couldn’t be a better time as we’re now heading towards the serious end of the tournament. Pune batted first against the Mumbai Indians and managed to score 159 in their 20 overs; with Tripathi yet again shining with the bat with his 45 off 31 balls. The real star of the match though was Ben Stokes – whose 2 for 21 in his 4 overs and a ripping catch at the off-side boundary to dismiss Hardik Pandya in the last over was instrumental in Pune’s victory over Mumbai Indians. They will come into the match with a great deal of confidence, having beaten the top side of IPL 2017.

RPS Vs KKR Playing 11 Prediction: Rahane, Tripathi, Smith*, Dhoni (WK), Stokes, Tiwary, Christian, Washington Sundar, Thakur, Unadkat & Tahir.

Kolkata Knight Riders

IPL 2017  Prediction: First Innings Score

It appeared in the last match that the Kolkata Knight Riders batsmen failed to capitalize on a good start laid down by their openers but it was, in fact, a very tricky surface at Eden Gardens that made reaching a high score very hard, this we don’t expect in Pune. 150+ is achievable.

A dominant KKR looks set to bring down RPS

In the 10 years of the Indian Premier League, there have been very few performances as dominant as shown by KKR in their last match.  The KKR batsmen did wobble in the middle overs and perhaps didn’t capitalize on the start given by Narine with a quick-fire 30+ as the final score was only 131. Yet, the KKR bowlers made 131 look like a mammoth total and it’s fair to assess that the bowling performance from KKR against RCB was a perfect lesson on how to extract perfect usage of conditions that support swing bowling. 3 of KKR’s bowlers grabbed 3 wickets-  CoulterNile, Woakes & Grand De Homme. The KKR side is looking threatening and the last match only goes to show how strong and devastating their bowling on the opposition can be.

KKR Vs RPS Playing 11 Prediction: Gambhir*, Narine, Uthappa (WK), Pandey, SuryaKumar, Y Pathan, C De Grandhomme, Woakes, Coulter Nile, K Yadav & U Yadav.

Kolkata_vs_rcb_prediction
IPL 2017 Clash : It’s Gambhir’s KKR vs Kohli’s RCB.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

RCB Vs KKR Match: First Innings Score Prediction

The KKR pitch is fast and will help strikers like Gayle, Kohli & Villiers – RCB should look for a total more than 160+.

Gayle & Kohli finally come good for RCB

The losing streak for Bangalore finally ended against the Gujarat Lions, whom they beat by 21 runs – in a performance that was worthy of what we have come to expect from the RCB; with big guns like Gayle and Kohli coming good for the franchise. A 122 run opening wicket partnership that ended in the 12th over had already set the platform rolling for big first innings score – with Gayle and Kohli making 77 and 64 respectively, settings GL 214 to chase.

RCB comes into the match with a positive frame of mind

Chahal was again impressive with the ball for RCB – grabbing 3 for 31 in his 4 overs. Negi grabbed 1 wicket but more importantly contained runs as he went at below 6 to the over, giving away just 21 runs in his 4 overs. RCB clinched the victory against GL and found a much-needed win to break the shackles and get into a more positive frame of mind – coming into the match against KKR, who are at the top of the table.

Kolkata Knight Riders

KKR Vs RCB Match Prediction: First Innings Score

KKR will be eyeing a score above 160 against a strong RCB batting line-up. With the form of their top order, 160+ is achievable.

KKR has shown good form in IPL 2017

The KKR side was pushed back by 2 losses and a close encounter against the Delhi Daredevils but has managed to bounce back since and play fearless cricket to again get to the top of the points table. The form of their top order batsmen (Gambhir, Uthappa, Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan) makes them a formidable unit and the innovative move of shifting Narine up the order has worked thus far.

The loss against GL crashes KKR’s winning momentum

KKR will be keen to consider whether to continue giving opportunities to Surya Kumar Yadav – who just hasn’t come good for them this season. Having lost their last game to Gujarat Lions, who are at the bottom of the points table; the KKR’s winning momentum has taken a hit. The loss marked a rare one for the franchise at their home ground in Eden Gardens and the blame largely goes to the KKR bowling that couldn’t defend a total of 187. Lions cruised to a very easy win with 10 balls to spare – giving KKR plenty to think about with regard to the bowling combination, coming into this match against RCB – which to say the least, has a couple of batsmen that can similarly punish KKR’s bowlers should they bowl as poorly.

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

KKR has the home advantage and the factoring in of their recent form makes them likely winners of this match.

We predict he will cross 30+.

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+.

IPL Prediction 2017 Delhi Daredevils vs Kolkata Knight Riders at Kotla Stadium, Delhi – on the 17th of April in IPL 2017.

DD_Vs_KKR_Match_Prediction

Delhi Daredevils

IPL 2017 Match Prediction : First Innings Score

Delhi Daredevils batsmen have put up more than 180+ in both of their last 2 matches, they will hope to continue this batting form and make a first innings total in excess of 160+.

The Delhi Daredevils are utilizing their resources well

Under the leadership of Zaheer Khan as coach and Rahul Dravid as senior mentor – the Delhi Daredevils began their IPL 2017 journey on a rather low note after having lost Duminy and De Kock but if their last 2 matches are anything to go-by; the Delhi unit has found form and hit just the right note to extract the maximum out of the potential that they have in their playing XI.

Sam Billings – the ideal opener for DD

We have predicted across our match reports that Sam Billings is an asset for Delhi Daredevils at the top of the order and he’s someone that hasn’t even got his due share in England t20 side but Billings is proving why he’s so lethal in this format of the game – the talent he has on himself was showcased against the Kings XI Punjab, the very match in which he scored a 50 and got his team closer to the target of 160+.

The Delhi Daredevils bowlers showed impressive form against Punjab

The Delhi Daredevils bowled with great discipline and while Punjab had the likes of Amla, Maxwell, Miller and Morgan in their side – 4 extremely talented batsmen to put it very modestly; the Delhi bowlers were incredible to restrict them to just 137 for 9 in their 20 overs; Delhi winning by 51 runs. Morris’ 3 wickets and 2 each for Nadeem and Cummins wrapped up a clinical performance from DD.

Kolkata Knight Riders

IPL 2017 Match Prediction : First Innings Score

This being a day game, the Kotla pitch will be very dry and we will see flurry of runs. 160+ is minimum that KKR will aim at.

Kolkata Knight Riders converted their confidence into performance

Coming into their last match against the Sunrisers Hyderabad with great confidence in their side – having beaten a strong Kings XI Punjab unit; KKR converted their confidence into performance and showed another impressive outing – beating the Sunrisers Hyderabad by 17 runs.

The KKR middle order responded to the crisis situation

Robin Uthappa came good for the KKR with 68 off 39, equally well supported by Manish Pandey’s 35 ball 46. Having lost Gambhir and Narine early, the KKR looked upto their middle order to fire and get them to a respectable score – a call to which the middle order answered and got KKR to 172 in their 20 overs.

The KKR bowling looks strengthened

All the bowlers apart from Umesh Yadav were in the wickets and this resulted in Hyderabad failing to chase down the total and losing by 15 runs. The star with the ball remained Narine who gave away just 18 runs in his 4 – grabbing 1 wicket. The bowling for KKR looks strong and it’ll be an interesting battle to see Narine at the Kotla pitch against Billings

IPL 2017 Match Prediction : Match Winning Team

While the Delhi Daredevils have got 2 solid wins in their bag, the KKR side will feel that the kind of form that their captain has shown in the tournament thus far, followed by the consistency of Manish Pandey and the coming into form of Uthappa – their batting looks very strong. Narine’s there to take care of the bowling, making KKR a very strong side to beat on their current form. KKR will be favourites.

KKR_Vs_SRH_Prediction

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 : Can Gambhir continue his great run of form?
Gautam Gambhir’s form is winning matches for KKR single-handedly

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+.

KKR Vs KXIP Match Prediction: Can Maxwell’s form ruin KKR’s hope of winning?

 IPL 2017 First Innings Score Prediction: Kings XI Punjab vs the Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens, Kolkata

Kolkata Knight Riders

KKR_Vs_KXIP_Match_Prediction

KKR will get a score in excess of 160+.

The balling let KKR down

Kolkata Knight Riders lost their match against Mumbai Indians – which was primarily due to a poor show with the ball in the latter half of the innings (especially the last 5 overs) where it seemed that someone had left the water tap open as runs were flowing like water. In the end, Hardik Pandya’s 27 runs proved to be match-winning for Mumbai Indians and KKR –the very side that chased over 180 with 10 wickets to spare in their first match lost their first match for this season.

Uthappa looks probable for opening role

KKR needs to consider who they replace Lynn with (IF Lynn is forced out due to his injury), making Uthappa open the batting is in all likelihood going to be the strategy at the top and maybe the New Zealander all-rounder in Grand De Homme will get his first IPL game in absence of Lynn – being an all-rounder, Homme’s presence on the side will make the team more balanced but KKR will lack explosive skills of Lynn.

Kings XI Punjab

Kings XI Punjab will get a score in excess of 170+.

Captain’s form is proving match-winning

Kings XI Punjab has won 2 out of their 2 games and both the matches were primarily won due to the sheer excellence is shown with the bat from Glenn Maxwell. The responsibility of captaincy is truly showing on Maxwell’s role as a batsman in the side and in a positive way. Maxwell looks more composed and confident of his skills – maybe due to the confidence showed by the management in him to lead the side. With 2 scores of 40+ in the tournament thus far, Maxwell’s form is seriously bad news for KKR coming into the match.

Amla’s experience is coming handy

Hashim Amla, who is often not considered as the ideal t20 player showed that this perception about him is totally wrong. Amla made a quick-fire 30 ball 50 against RCB which was quintessential in Kings XI Punjab beating RCB with relative ease.

Team News

Kolkata Knight Riders

The KKR squad has troubling news in form of Chris Lynn’s shoulder injury, which he suffered in KKR’s last match against the Mumbai Indians. Lynn has suffered an injury on the same shoulder in the past and it’s uncertain whether this injury is the curtain call on his journey in IPL 2017 – KKR is keeping the news on his injury in secrecy and nothing much has been said. However, good news on Umesh Yadav, who is expected to start his IPL 2017 journey in this match.

Kings XI Punjab

The unit looks set and ready to continue playing with their full strengthened squad that includes key guns like Amla, Miller, Maxwell (captain), Saha and Stoinis.

Who’ll win today?

The Kings XI Punjab under the leadership of Maxwell looks full-proof right now with very little to no drawbacks looking visible in their playing XI. This is even though they’ve chased twice in their 2 matches and have looked rather comfortable chasing above 150 runs. They will come into the match as favorites.

IPL Match Prediction: Key Player Prediction

IPL 2017 First Innings Score Prediction : with Maxwell's recent run of form, Kings XI Punjab look set to put up a huge total on board if they bat first.
Glenn Maxwell’s form remains KKR’s major concern coming into the key encounter

If Glenn Maxwell’s form is anything to go by, he is becoming the most brutal player of IPL 2017. With 80+ runs in 2 matches, Maxwell will be scratching his hands to get back into the middle against KKR and make it 3 out of 3 for Kings XI Punjab in IPL 2017 – we predict he will again cross 30 runs in the match.
