Today Match Prediction
Only a few games are now left in the IPL 2017 with top 6 sides trying hard to keep themselves in the race for the playoffs. It’ll be a closely fought battle and every team will be making all the possible efforts to make it to the finishing line. As of now, the next game is scheduled between Gujarat Lions and Kings XI Punjab. Though Lions have a comparatively low chance of winning it, having lost 8 of their 11 matches played so far, but they will be trying their best to secure another win. On the contrary, Kings Xi will be looking to win it and make their way easier to the playoffs. And, in fact, Kings XI are still the favorites considering the recent performances of the two sides.
Lions have been amongst runs this season as they scored in excess of 200 even in their last match. Their captain, Suresh Raina, has been scoring runs consistently in this season and got his highest in the last game against Daredevils. But Lions will be expecting their top 2, with the likes of Dwayne Smith and Brendon McCullum to fire so that they can post a big total on the board. It’s been their bowling that has been suffering so far and they will expect a big performance from James Faulkner and Ravi Jadeja to keep them in the tournament.
Kings XI will be looking to win it big so that they can get a better NRR than Sunrisers Hyderabad who are placed right above them in the points table. They managed to win their last game against RCB in a low scoring affair where they successfully defended 138. However, they will expect their batsmen to come up with a solid performance to give them a chance against Gujrat Lions who have the capacity of scoring big totals.
The batsmen who will be in the spotlight for them will be Hashim Amla, Martin Guptill, Shaun Marsh, and Glenn Maxwell. On the bowling front, they’ll be relying on Sandeep Sharma and Axar Patel who picked 3 wickets each in the last match. Glenn Maxwell and Mohit Sharma are also amongst wickets for them.
As for our prediction, it will be Kings XI Punjab to win it considering their track record in the tournament so far. They have done it before and they will surely be doing it again.
