Match 26 : Gujarat Lions (GL) vs Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) IPL 2017 Match Prediction Today : 23/04/2017

Match 26: Gujarat Lions (GL) vs Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) IPL 2017 Match Prediction Today: 23/04/2017.

Gujarat Lions and Kings XI Punjab have now reached a stage in the season where anything less than victory would be a huge blow to their hopes of qualifying for the playoffs in IPL 2017. Captains of both sides, Suresh Raina and Glenn Maxwell, have both been in good form but have been let down by their respective bowlers.

After winning their first two games, it has been all downhill for Maxwell’s side as they have now lost four games on the bounce in this year’s tournament.

They are languishing near the foot of the table with just two wins from their six games and are in desperate need of some inspiration as they seek to end their four-game losing streak.In start contrast, Gujarat Lions are looking like they are finally getting some form together as they have won two of their last four games and weren't too far away from winning the other two as well.

Captain Raina is leading from the front and he has got great support from Brendon McCullum.

Chinnaswamy’s history and the capability that RCB gloats of, it is still route beneath the destitution line. Abdominal muscle on air figured he was getting ready to pursue down 200. Looks certain when the two 50+ stands were hitting it to all parts of the ground. Significantly more so when Dhoni smoked one to arrive on the rooftop. Only for the time-out to turn things around. 9 balls, 3 runs, 5 wickets that tailed it slammed all expectations. What’s more, the majority of them to the change-ups in pace. Smith and Dhoni appeared to have done their diligent work with a 58-run stand.

Gujarat Lions will take a lot of heart from their win against the formidable Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens with skipper Raina finally showing why he is revered in the shortest format. The 46-ball-84 against a potent Knight Riders attack will certainly bolster their confidence after a string of defeats.

Match 26 : Gujarat Lions (GL) vs Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)

Similarly, KXIP will take solace from the fact that they scored a near 200 total (198) against the Mumbai Indians with Hashim Amla scoring a terrific hundred and skipper Maxwell also hitting some lusty blows. For Gujarat, McCullum with 258 runs and Raina with 243 runs, are among the top five run-getters in the tournament so far. However, the problem area for both the teams has been bowling which has let them down on most of the occasions.

Indian bowlers The Indian bowlers, in both the teams, have not been able to set the stage on fire with noteworthy performances. Take the case of India discards Mohit Sharma and Sandeep Sharma. The two medium-pacers have been preferred by Maxwell in all the six matches and their economy rates have been a dismal 9.39 and 9.18 respectively.

Even Varun Aaron, in the three matches that he has played, had an economy rate of 8.90. Only Axar Patel has somewhat redeemed himself with an economy rate of 7.31. Gujarat Lions will be hoping to somehow fit in their best pacer Andrew Tye, who has taken seven wickets in three games including a hat-trick at a decent economy rate of 7.08. Ravindra Jadeja - Gujarat's biggest bowling weapon - is yet to fire and has had a poor economy rate of 10.12 in four matches having taken only one wicket. Praveen Kumar's lack of pace and swing has meant he has been hit at an economy rate of 10.32 over five games.

The silver lining for Lions has been Kerala pacer Basil Thampi, who has had a comparatively better economy rate of 8.88, but his ability to bowl yorkers at will has been hailed by many as an India prospect. Bowling has been a big problem for the Gujarat team, which has taken only 19 wickets from six games. Taking all this into account, one can expect another run feast at the SCA stadium in Khanderi.

If Kings XI Punjab bat firstPredicted score: 170+Hashim Amla showed that he isn’t just here to make up the numbers or fill in for Martin Guptill, who is finally fit again. The rest of the top order is in great form as well. Manan Vohra almost won a lost cause against SRH while Maxwell has flourished with the added responsibility of captaincy so far in IPL 2017.The only concern for Kings XI is the abundance of middle-order batsman and the negative effect it seems to be having on their performance in the tournament.

While they have the fire power to clear any boundary, they also have some obvious limitations that stifle their ability to go big.The Lions have struggled in the bowling department due to the lack of wickets provided by their spinners. The fast bowlers haven’t got the early wickets and that put more pressure on the spinners, who have struggled to cope up with it. With another explosive batting line-up to contend with, it certainly won’t be easy for the hosts.Predicted winners: Gujarat Lions

Match 18: Delhi Daredevils (DD) vs Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) IPL 017 Match Today Prediction : 17/04/2017 Live Streaming Updates - IPL 2017

Match 18: Delhi Daredevils (DD) vs Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) IPL 017 Match Today Prediction: 17/04/2017 Live Streaming Updates - IPL 2017. 

IPL Today Match Prediction Delhi Daredevils vs Kolkata Knight Riders 18th Match April 17th Monday. Who Will Win DD vs KKR Cricket free tips accurate 100%?

IPL Today Match Prediction Delhi Daredevils vs Kolkata Knight Riders

Let’s move on towards the two amazing teams of IPL which are also of the top 3 teams of the points table. Yet Delhi is at the 3rd position by winning 2 matches from 3 and KKR is at 2nd position with the win of 3 matched from 4. So this match gonna be exciting between two up and down teams.

If we take a look at the team players of both teams then we realize we can easily say that these two teams are the only teams in this IPL which are totally balanced according to the batting and bowling lineup.

Robin Uthappa roared back to form batting at the No.3 position and played some exceptional shots en route to quick fire 68. He should have been dismissed in the very first ball but the onfield umpire made a blunder and ruled it in favor of the batting team. He made full use of the opportunity and ensured KKR reached a competitive total of more than 170 runs.

Their bowling department also looks solid with spinners Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav leading the pack. The fast bowling department has also been bolstered by the return of Umesh Yadav to go with international stars like Trent Boult and Chris Woakes. Suryakumar Yadav is due for runs and he will surely look to make some runs against Delhi Daredevils.

The Delhi outfit, on the other hand, has made an inspired comeback after losing their opening encounter. They looked a class apart against the Rising Pune Supergiant and followed it up with another professional performance against the Kings XI Punjab. Their batting line-up has fired all cylinders in the last two games which have been a huge plus for them.

DD seems to be finally performing to the potential that was always there in their unit. The young guns are firing ABD have become the main threat to the opposition. The openers Sanju Samson and Sam Billings have wonderful knocks to their name. Barring the shock loss to Mumbai Indians, KKR has been flawless so far. The loss to MI was sort of unjust but KKR has made up for it by winning the following two games emphatically. The only factor worrying will be that there will be no home advantage for them this time and DD has gathered enough steam to pose a real challenge to their quest for dominance.

Delhi Daredevils Squad
Zaheer Khan (Captain), AR Bawne, KK Ahmed, CJ Anderson, M Ashwin, SW Billings, CR Brathwaite, PJ Cummins, Q de Kock, BW Hilfenhaus, SS Iyer, AD Mathews, CV Milind, A Mishra, Mohammed Shami, CH Morris, S Nadeem, KK Nair, RR Pant, Pratyush Singh, K Rabada, NA Saini, SV Samson, Shashank Singh, AP Tare, J Yadav

Toss Prediction

Toss is going to be crucial at the M Chinnaswamy. Since the side batting first at this ground has emerged victorious on more number of occasions than the side batting second in recent times, the toss-winning team is more likely to have a bat first. We recommend betting on Royal Challengers Bangalore if they bat first in this match.

Two struggling teams of IPL 2017 -- Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) – are set for a massive encounter in Bengaluru on Sunday. With just one win each, RCB and RPS will be looking to come with an all-round performance to pick their second win of IPL 2017.
With the pitch in Bengaluru slow and dry in RCB's last home match, it could be a tricky affair on Sunday.
Here is how Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) vs Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) Match 17 could go.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) vs Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS)

RCB Team Analysis and Overview: RCB have themselves to blame for the position they are in. They lost to MI after putting themselves in a winning position. They have won just one game out of four and another loss would make their task difficult. Kohli has announced his arrival with a fifty against MI. But other star batsman in Chris Gayle needs to fire as well to lessen burden on other players. RCB bowling has also been inconsistent.

RCB strength: Batting has always been their biggest strength, but it has not fired in unison. Gayle has been off-colour. They are also not finishing off well. But it is just a matter of time that RCB batting destroy the opposition. And nothing can be better than feasting on RPS’s poor bowling resources.

RCB weakness: Their batting and bowling lack consistency and have allowed opposition to come back into the match from losing situations. They are missing that killer punch that sailed them to the final of 2016 IPL. They must find momentum quickly or would find it difficult to get back into the tournament.

RCB (Possible XI):

Virat Kohli (captain)

Chris Gayle

AB de Villiers

Kedar Jadhav

Pawan Negi

Mandeep Singh

Stuart Binny

Tymal Mills

Sreenath Aravind

Y Chahal

Samuel Badree

RPS Team Analysis and Overview: RPS are struggling to get their combination right. And they are performing below potential. They won the only match when their skipper Steven Smith led from the front. Smith needs to set an example for others to lift their game and give RPS a chance to get momentum in their IPL campaign.

RPS strengths: Batting is the strength, but it has not fired in unison and failed to finish off in a high. They boast of a good batting line up comprising Steven Smith, Ajinkya Rahane, Ben Stokes and MS Dhoni. But they are yet to fire together. They might just be waiting to feast on a batting friendly track in Bengaluru.

RPS weakness: RPS bowling is their biggest concern. They have leaked runs aplenty. They have leaked 184, 164, 205 and 172 in the four games. Their bowling is visibly struggling. Imran Tahir began well, but he has not been consistent either. The Indian bowlers have been ineffective. RPS need to solve their bowling woes.

RPS (Possible XI):

Steven Smith (captain)

Ajinkya Rahane

Ben Stokes

MS Dhoni

Imran Tahir

Shardul Thakur

Lockie Ferguson

Manoj Tiwary

RD Chahar

Ankit Sharma

RA Tripathi

Pitch report: M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru is a flat pitch where the ball comes on nicely to bat. This ground has always seen high-scoring games and even big target has been chased down with ease. The team that wins toss would look to field as setting a target that can be safe is difficult to predict at this ground.

Mumbai Indians: Strengths

Pollard’s back in form – Mumbai Indians were struggling at 7/4 against Royal Challengers Bangalore the other day and it was the big West Indian Kieron Pollard who fought back and played a match-winning knock to get the Mumbai Indians over the line in the run chase.

Pandya brothers’ all-round contribution – Hardik and Krunal – both brothers have come up with exceptional performances in Mumbai’s wins in IPL 2017. Krunal got AB de Villiers’ wicket and stitched in a crucial partnership along with Pollard against RCB and the two brothers were at the crease when Mumbai Indians hit those winning runs against Virat’s Challengers. In fact, they have become a pivotal part of MI in the past two seasons and have proved to be match winners in their own way.

Mumbai Indians: Weakness

Rohit Sharma’s poor run in season 10 – MI skipper Rohit Sharma hasn’t been able to get into double digits so far in IPL 2017. Mumbai have won three out of four games but their skipper is struggling big time. Rohit Sharma is considered India’s best opener, so the opening slot is the best position for the Hitman. Going ahead, Rohit should open for MI so that he gets back his lost touch.

Mumbai Indians (Probable XI) – Jos Buttler, Parthiv Patel, Rohit Sharma, Nitish Rana, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Mitchell McClenaghan, Harbhajan Singh, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah.

Gujarat Lions: Strengths

Top order firing – Dwayne Smith and Brendon McCullum opened against Rising Pune Supergiant and were at their destructive best. Both of them struck plenty of meaty blows in Gujarat’s run chase and put the opponents on the back foot with their aggressive hitting. At the same time, Suresh Raina has been consistent with the bat and is scoring runs for his team on a regular basis. The skipper is leading by example and Gujarat Lions seem to have found a settled batting unit with Baz and Smith as the two openers.

Andrew Tye’s brilliant debut – The Australian T20 specialist bowled a special spell and bagged a 5-wicket haul on his IPL debut against Pune. Also, his 5-for included a hat-trick that helped Gujarat restrict its opposition to a relatively lesser total than expected. AJ Tye will play a crucial role for the Lions for the rest of the season looking at his heroics on debut.

Gujarat Lions: Weakness

Unsettled bowling unit – Apart from Andrew Tye, none of the Lions bowlers have been up to the mark this year. They have gone for plenty and Gujarat need to get this problem sorted before it gets too late. Their batting is a packed with power hitters, just that their bowling needs to improve and complement their lethal batsmen. Hopefully, their bowling unit gets settled with the arrival of Andrew Tye.

Gujarat Lions (Probable XI) – Dwayne Smith, Brendon McCullum, Suresh Raina, Aaron Finch, Dinesh Karthik, Ishan Kishan, Ravindra Jadeja, Andre Tye, Praveen Kumar, Basil Thampi, Shadab Jakati.

Here is what Crictracker predicts for the game:

Scenario 1: MI will win the toss

Toss Prediction: MI choose to bowl

First innings prediction: 175-180

2nd innings Prediction: MI will win by 6 wickets (with an over to spare)

Mumbai Indians (MI) vs Gujarat Lions (GL)

Scenario 2: GL will win the toss

Toss Prediction: GL choose to bowl

First innings Prediction: 200-210

2nd innings Prediction: MI win by 55 runs

Despite Gujarat Lions winning both their previous encounters against Mumbai Indians, the home team looks a more settled unit and is undoubtedly the clear favorites for tomorrow’s clash. The home team will look to set their record against Gujarat Lions straight while the visitors will look to keep up their good work against the Mumbai Indians.

Playing Combinations

Mumbai Indians

The home team will definitely come to all guns blazing and is expected to retain their XI from the previous game. The only replacement might be that of LasithMalinga in place of Tim Southee. If fit Malinga walks into the XI any day so Southee is expected to sit out. The rest of the team remains more or less the same.

Their batting line up was put in a spot of bothering the other day as Samuel Badree bagged a sensational hat-trick to reduce them to 7/4. Despite the horrendous start the big man from West Indies Kieron Pollard took the responsibility on his shoulders and played a blinder of an innings to ensure Mumbai chased the target down. Apart from Malinga’s comeback the rest of the team remains the same.

Predicted XI: Parthiv Patel, Jos Buttler, Rohit Sharma, NitishRana, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Harbhajan Singh, Mitchell McLeneghan, JaspritBumrah, LasithMalinga

Gujarat Lions

After losing the opening two matches of the tournament, Gujarat Lions made a strong comeback against the Rising Pune Supergiants in the previous encounter. They were bolstered by the return of No.1 Test bowler Ravindra Jadeja and also included Aussie pacer Andrew Tye in the line-up. It was a dream debut for the medium pacer who bagged a hat-trick and finished with exceptional figures of 5/17 in 4 overs.

The opening combination of Dwayne Smith and Brendon McCullum looked pretty dangerous up the order and they will stick to the opening combination at least for the next couple of matches. The middle order also looks settled with Aaron Finch and captain Suresh Raina going great guns but still, they have to pull their socks especially if they have to return triumphantly against the Mumbai Indians.
