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.

RCB-Vs-KXIP-Match-Prediction
IPL 2017 Prediction for RCB vs Kings XI Punjab at Bengaluru on 5/04/2017.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Led by Virat Kohli, the Bangalore franchise currently finds itself out of the playoffs race in Vivo IPL 2017. A side that has all the promise of big stars that can on their given day absolutely snatch away win from the opposition has had a very disappointing IPL 2017. RCB began this season without Kohli and that probably interfered with their rhythm – losing initial games. By the time their captain arrived, it was probably too late to change things around. However, not all is lost. They play for pride and to ensure that they don’t finish last in the points table.

RCB Vs KXIP 5 May 2017 Prediction: First Innings Score

Royal Challengers Bangalore has all the firepower in it’s batting, it just hasn’t clicked frequently for them this season. We predict they will get somewhere over 150+.

RCB Playing 11

Kohli*, Mandeep, Watson, Head, Villiers, Jadhav(WK), Negi, Choudhary, Milne, Aravind, Chahal.

Kings XI Punjab

Having lost some momentum in the middle phase of the tournament, Punjab has hit form at the right time and they’d only want it peaking. Having won their last match via an absolute thrashing that they gave to DD – bundling them out for just 67 and chasing the same in less than 8 overs has boosted Punjab’s Net Run Rate. Against RCB, Punjab faces a key fixture which they must win to strengthen their chances of making it to the top 4.

KXIP Vs RCB Prediction: First Innings Score

A batting heavy side, Kings XI Punjab depends primarily on its batsmen to win it games. We predict they will score more than 160+.

Kings XI Punjab Playing 11

Guptill, Amla, Vohra, GJ Maxwell*, WP Saha(WK),  T Natarajan, AR Patel, MM Sharma, SE Marsh, VR Aaron, Sandeep Sharma.

RCB Vs Punjab Toss Prediction

Kings XI Punjab will win the toss and elect to chase – they have a relatively inexperienced bowling line-up and therefore knowing what to chase is quintessential for them to win against RCB as defending isn’t an option against a strong RCB batting unit.

RCB Vs KXIP Match Prediction. Who’ll Win 5th May Match?



We can’t rule out the dim chance of RCB coming really good in this game but taking form into consideration, Kings XI Punjab should win this.

KXIP Vs RCB Prediction: Key Player Prediction

IPL 2017 Prediction : It's going to be the 'big show' from Maxwell
IPL 20Prediction:n : It’s going to be the ‘big show’ from Maxwell

Glenn Maxwell – the ‘BIG SHOW’ as he’s referred to and probably for a reason. The show doesn’t get any bigger than this, it’s the perfect platform for Maxwell to act as a leader and guide his side to an important win. We predict he will score above 30+.

MI Vs RCB Match Prediction 1st May: Who’ll Win? #Prediction

IPL Prediction Series from PredictX: Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2017 Clash at Mumbai, on the 1st 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 IPL 2017 campaign is over for RCB but they still have all to play for – it’s the team’s reputation that’s at stake, the very team that has big names like Kohli, Villiers, Gayle, Mills making appearance for them. It’s hard to nit-pick where the side has gone wrong but it has nevertheless found itself lacking the killer instinct to take down teams this IPL – by far the worst performance in the 10 years of IPL for this franchise.

IPL 2017 Prediction : First Innings Score –

Taking into consideration the epic failure of RCB’s batting unit in the last few games, a score in excess of 130+ is what they’ll be in content with.

IPL 2017 Prediction : – Playing XI : Gayle, Kohli*, Villiers, Head, Jadhav(WK), Mandeep Singh, Negi, Badree, Arvind, Choudhary, Chahal

Mumbai Indians

Going strength to strength in this season’s tournament, the MI are looking devastatingly threatening to seize the IPL trophy this year. The form of their batsmen matched with their bowlers has made them look like an extremely powerful side that is capable of both putting big totals on the board as well as chasing down big totals – they will be keen to make the most of playing the weakest side of IPL 2017 i.e. RCB.

IPL 2017 Prediction : First Innings Score –

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

IPL 2017 Prediction : – Playing XI : Patel, Buttler(WK), Rana, Rohit Sharma*, Karn Sharma, Pollard, Pandya, Harbhajan Singh, McClenghan, Johnson

IPL 2017 Prediction : TOSS

The Mumbai Indians will win the toss and will put RCB into bat. The reason why Mumbai Indians will like to chase is that they’ve plenty of explosive batsmen in their XI – Rohit, Pollard, Pandya Brothers, Parthiv, Rana & Buttler; a solid batting unit that can chase down any big score.

IPL 2017 Prediction : Match Winning Team

It’s a no-brainer really. The kind of form that Mumbai Indians has shown or rather the out-of-form look that RCB is currently in; it’ll be interesting to see if Royal Challengers Bangalore can change things around a bit or not. The continuous frustrating streak of losing one-sidedly to the opposition is not what we’ve come to expect of the franchise in the last 10 years – their leader in Kohli is a winner who’ll be absolutely miffed at the faith of his side this IPL 2017. The Mumbai Indians should win this without much trouble.

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

Virat Kohli – having found some form in the last game, he’s on whom RCB relies heavily to gain some sort of respectability in the points table of IPL 2017. We predict he will again cross 30+.

Rising Pune Supergiant

An all-important encounter for RPS against RCB

Just around a week back, the experts were wiping out Rising Pune Supergiant’s chance of making it to top 4 in Vivo IPL 2017 as neither their star-studded batting nor was their bowling delivering the goods for them. But, a terrific chase against Sunrisers Hyderabad – courtesy of a special 60+ from MS Dhoni and in the very next match; taking down the table-toppers in Mumbai Indians by 3 runs has now put Pune at the 4th spot in the points table. Their last match against KKR though exposed their weak bowling which was primarily due to the absence of Ben Stokes –someone whose 4 overs are pivotal to the balance of RPS’ bowling unit. His absence cost RPS who couldn’t defend 182 as KKR won with 7 wickets in hand and 2 overs to spare.

RPS Vs RCB Playing 11 Prediction

Rahane, Tripathi, Smith*, DuPlessi/Stokes, Dhoni (WK ), Tiwary, Christian, Washington Sundar, Thakur, Unadkat & Imran Tahir

Royal Challengers Bangalore

The IPL 2017 Trophy isn’t going to be RCB’s

The miserable run in IPL 2017 for RCB just isn’t ending as their last match against the Gujarat Lions – who are just one place ahead of Bangalore in the points table i.e. at the 7th spot, even against them the RCB side looked out of sorts as neither their batting nor their bowling seemed to be in order to win them the match. The whole Royal Challengers Bangalore side was bundled out for just 134 in their 20 overs – with all the 3 big guns in Kohli, Villiers, and Gayle failing to lay a strong foundation at the top in the batting order. This loss marks the end of the road for RCB’s chances of making it to the top 4 – at least mathematically.

RCB Vs RPS Playing XI Prediction

Gayle, Kohli*, Villiers, Head, Jadhav(WK), Mandeep Singh, Negi, Badree, Arvind, Choudhary, Chahal

RCB Vs RPS Prediction: Who Will Win today’s IPL match?


Both the sides are quite equal in terms of the form they’ve shown in the IPL 2017 so far. But, the home factor always is the key and with the match being played at Pune, RPS will start as favorites to win this one.

Pune Vs Bangalore Key Player Prediction

IPL Prediction: Tripathi at the top has performed brilliantly for RPS

Rahul Tripathi  – the star find for RPS this season, while still not in the orange cap list; the knocks that he has played have truly stood out and his form with the bat is the primary reason for RPS’ turnaround in the IPL 2017. The start he gives along with Rahane at the top will determine the faith of RPS in the match. We predict Tripathi 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+.

RCB-VS-SRH-Prediction-IPL
IPL 2017 Clash: Can RCB recover against SRH from dismissal performance against KKR?

Royal Challengers Bangalore

RCB Vs SRH IPL 2017 Match Prediction: First Innings Score

The dismissive performance from RCB in their last match can tempt any expert to expect a similar poor show but we know that RCB unit will be keen to never repeat such a reckless performance. They should reach 150+ in this match, with it being played at Chinnaswamy.

Reckless – an apt definition by Kohli for RCB’s performance against KKR

RCB’s performance in the last match was probably defined very precisely in one word by their captain in Kohli – as “RECKLESS”. Having bowled out KKR for just 131, RCB had an easy shot at victory with 3 prominent world stars in their line-up; Gayle, Kohli & Villiers. Yet, what unfolded was a sight that no RCB fan would have enjoyed as on display was quality bowling from KKR but equally poor batting show from the RCB.

The worst batting display in 10 years of IPL

The whole RCB unit was bundled out for just 49 runs (lowest batting total in IPL history)– that too in just inside 10 overs. Chasing just 132, RCB still lost by 82 runs and it’s probably fair to say that this batting performance is to this date, the worst that we’ve seen in the 10 years of IPL. The highest scorer for RCB was Kedar Jadhav with 9 – which in a nutshell explains the disgraceful turnout from the RCB batsmen, much to the disappointment of their captain; who had very harsh words to say post the match. Recovering from this match won’t be easy for RCB as they now find themselves in a similar spot as the Gujarat Lions – with the threat of being the 8th side to finish at points table very much looming on this star-studded side.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

SRH VS RCB IPL 2017 Match Prediction: First Innings Score

Sunrisers Hyderabad’s batsmen have shown great form with the bat in the tournament. Their captain has led from the front and we can expect a similarly good show from them in this match. 160+ is what we predict.

Hyderabad Vs Dhoni – a battle won by the latter

The Sunrisers Hyderabad suffered a shock loss against the Rising Pune Supergiant as it was one man and one man alone that could’ve taken the match away from Hyderabad single-handedly and it was Dhoni – whose 61 off 34 balls guided his side to chasing 179 in their 20 overs.

Match lost but SRH are still in stronghold for a top-2 spot

Hyderabad will however not be too bamboozled by their performance. The very reason why they lost was a lack of discipline from their bowlers in the latter half of the chase – but it’s really hard for any world-class bowler to stop Dhoni when he’s on the song; as he was in this match. Hyderabad still has plenty of opportunities to reach the top 2 in the points table as they’re currently at the 3rd spot and this match against RCB can be their stepping stone to again seizing a top-2 spot.

He will come to the ground as a fighter – captain of a team in shatters but will prove a point is what we predict. He’ll cross 30+.

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.

Gautam Gambhir has shown great form for KKR this season and against an arch-rival in Virat Kohli – two of whom are very much alike in their style of play that is backed by aggression to get results, Gambhir will be eyeing strong innings to put his side in a favorable position in the match. We predict he will cross 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.

RCB vs RSP : First Innings Score Prediction – IPL 2017

RCB vs RSP : First Innings Score Prediction – IPL 2017

IPL 2017 Match Prediction for match between Royal Challengers Bangalore taking on the Rising Pune Supergiant in IPL 2017 clash at Bengaluru on the 16th of April 2017.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

IPL 2017 Match Prediction : First Innings Score

Gayle, Kohli and Villiers – with Kohli and Villiers already having shown some signs of form with the bat, should Gayle too find it easy to get going – the RCB should get over 160+.

The star power on paper isn’t translating into results

With a side that reflects great star power on paper, the situational factors however tend to showcase a much different tale for the Royal Challengers Bangalore – who’ve had a start far away from being called ideal in IPL 2017. The batting hasn’t fired and neither is their sharpness in their bowling unit.

Kohli is back and in form

The return of Kohli into the side saw him coming into runs straight away with a 61-run innings versus the Mumbai Indians and his form will definitely give great boost to the RCB but the performance from their other star batsman in Gayle will give them equal question to ask as to whether they need to think about serious overhaul in their playing XI.

Travis Head – it’s time to get him into playing XI

The inconsistent run of form for Gayle has been reason of worry for RCB – so much so that he was even dropped for one match from the side but that too didn’t do much. Villiers has had a mixed start with a 60 and 20+ in his 2 innings, he surely can’t be called out of sync. Our prediction for RCB to change things around however remains with making amends in the middle order by getting Travis Head into the XI (someone who bats as well as bowls off-spin).  The bowling for RCB doesn’t look weak with Badree in the XI but there was carelessness shown by RCB bowlers after having Mumbai down by 5 wickets with less than 50 runs on board and yet losing the clash.

Rising Pune Supergiant

 IPL 2017 Match Prediction : First Innings Score

Pune will eye over 150+ with due consideration to the form shown by Steve Smith in the tournament thus far, however MS Dhoni needs to step up and take responsibility in the middle order – where the onus of converting a good start into a big final score lies.

Smith’s form is the lone reason for Pune to still have hope

The Smith led Rising Pune Supergiant started the IPL with a bang against the Mumbai Indians – chasing over 180 runs due to a phenomenal star performance from Steve Smith who quite expectedly continued from the form he showed against India in the recently concluded test series but since their first match, Pune’s IPL 2017 journey has only gone downhill.

The losing streak just doesn’t stop for Pune

With Smith not able to repeat his heroics from first match into Pune’s second match to him not playing their 3rd match due to food poisoning – Pune lost momentum as they lost their captain which meant Rahane had to fill Smith’s shoes for one match which clearly didn’t go down well as Pune lost to Delhi by 97 runs. In their last match against Gujarat Lions – it was another losing tale where Pune got a good start but gave away far too many wickets at the end of the innings.

Batsmen getting starts, not converting starts into big scores

With 43 from Steve Smith, 33 from Tripathi and 31 from Manoj Tiwary – Pune didn’t have any of their batsmen going past 50+ which is quintessential to post a total in excess of 200+ in t20’s, something that cost Pune their last match, which Gujarat Lions won with 2 overs to spare and 7 wickets in hand – showcasing the lacklustre bowling of Pune.

IPL 2017 Match Prediction : Match Winning Team

The Royal Challengers Bangalore will go into the match as more favourites to win primarily due to them playing at their home ground but also since they’ve potential match-winners in their team, more so as compared to Pune – that are depending heavily on Steve Smith.

RCB vs RPS Prediction  : We predict Kohli will shine again with the bat for RCB
RCB vs RPS Prediction : We predict Kohli will shine again with the bat for RCB

Virat Kohli – the RCB captain cannot stay away from a win for too long and with the kind of form he showed in the last match, he’ll be keen to showcase his power with the bat and get his side into winning ways. We predict he’ll again cross 30 runs for RCB.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: First Innings Score

Playing at their home ground at M Chinnaswamy, a ground that has very short boundaries – the RCB should they play Gayle along with Villiers will eye up 160+ as their first innings total.

RCB Vs MI Match Prediction

AB De Villiers special knock couldn’t save the day for RCB

With the return of AB De Villiers into their XI – the RCB side would’ve hoped for a change of luck in their last match against the Kings XI Punjab but a lackluster performance from their bowlers ended up giving away an 8 wicket victory over the opponent. Villiers’ form though will give some easy breathing to Bangalore – looking to make amends in IPL 2017.

Virat Kohli is back against Mumbai Indians

The big news coming from the RCB dug-out is that Kohli is fit from his shoulder injury and BCCI is reporting that he will play the match against the Mumbai Indians – this news will surely lift the spirits of the RCB fans. Check the below video, Virat Kohli posted on Instagram.

Can’t wait to get back onto the field. Almost there now 💪✌️😃. 14th April ⏳

A post shared by Virat Kohli (@virat.kohli) on

The Gayle storm can’t be ignored for too long

Coming of Villiers into the side saw an unexpected change from RCB i.e. to drop Chris Gayle, someone who’s been the star player for the franchise and has often won matches on his own sheer power with the bat – and yet, even he’s not given a fixed place in the XI. RCB needs to consider playing both Villiers and Gayle together, should they be looking to change things around.

Mumbai Indians

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: First Innings Score

It’s about time Mumbai Indians’ had their captain in Rohit Sharma come big on this big stage of IPL and this match might just give him the opportunity for that. In case he doesn’t fire, the young guns like Rana and Pandya brothers are always there to take the score to respectability – 160+ is what Mumbai Indians should get.

Mumbai Indians are on the winning track

With their first win of the season finally coming their way against Kolkata Knight Riders, the Mumbai Indians had momentum which they brought with themselves to their match against the Sunrisers Hyderabad and are now looking good in the points table with 2 wins in 2 games.

The youngsters of the side know the onus is on them

The stepping up of youngsters like Pandya and Rana is a very pleasing sign for the franchise. While big names like Pollard and Malinga still haven’t delivered match-winning performances, their presence in the side is always going to make Mumbai Indians look strong and with youngsters taking the onus of winning the game for the side – the franchise does look probable to reach the last 4.

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: which team will win?

The Mumbai Indians look stronger of the two sides on form. The RCB in spite of some big names in their XI isn’t translating the prospective talent into practical performers on the field and as long as big names don’t translate into big performances – RCB aren’t likely to change things around; in a nutshell – all the big guns need to fire against MI – Villiers, Kohli & Gayle but form is something that can’t be substituted with big names.

 IPL 2017 Match Prediction: Key Player

IPL 2017 Match Prediction : We predict AB De Villiers will again come good for the RCB.
Villiers is back for RCB and in-form, his stay at crease will be crucial for RCB’s fate

AB De Villiers – the South African 360* player is back into RCB and will be hoping to continue from where he left off against the Kings XI Punjab. Given, the pitch in the last match was challenging and the situation in which he batted was even more challenging – seeing wickets tumble and thus Villiers will take a lot of confidence from the innings he played and will look to repeat the true star performance. We predict he will go beyond 30 runs in the match.

Playing 11 of both the team will be announced soon here. Keep checking this space!
