Cricket Betting Tips Kings XI Punjab vs Kolkata Knight Riders, 44th Match Live at Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore
KXIP are just 2 wins away from reaching the playoffs while KKR need to win their remaining 3 matches to reach the next level; keeping in mind the scenario of Mumbai Indians as well. Now, the situation has become interesting and apart from SRH, all are eyeing for that remaining 3 slots. This match would be crucial for both KXIP and KKR as they both have lost their last games respectively. Let’s take a look at their strengths and weaknesses:
Magnificent ‘Rahul’ – The kind of form he is in can’t be compared with any other player in this IPL. Rishabh Pant is the one who has impressed but the kind of class Rahul is showing is unbeatable. He is the main batsman of the team at present and the whole side is dependent on him and Gayle for blistering starts.
Ashwin: The Leader – Without any doubt, Ashwin has been tremendous with his captaincy so far. Sehwag’s decision of making him the skipper worked out and now Kings are just 2 steps away from reaching the playoffs. What do you think of it? Can they do it?
Losing streak – They have lost 3 games out of their last 4 and are eager to win this one against KKR. Another loss from here can put them in trouble and under pressure. They have a terrific batting line-up and the team would want to come back to their original fire mode.
Unpredictable captaincy – Karthik has made every one shocked when he gave the last 3 overs of the innings to spinners against CSK but that thing worked for them as Chennai were having issues while scoring runs at the death. You can expect something similar like that in their encounter against Kings XI Punjab.
Need 3 off 3 – KKR now need to win all their matches to stay in the contest otherwise their journey could be over. DK would want his side to do well against KXIP and grab those 2 points. Can KKR beat KXIP in this high-voltage encounter?
