Rajasthan royals takes on Kings 11 Punjab will lock horns with each other in Jaipur in the 4th match of the Indian premier league 2019. Lets have a look and predict the game:
They are tagged as one of the under dogs but they are very underrated as they have some brilliant match winners in their line up. Let us have a look at their strength and weakness.
With calm and composed Rahane opening the batting with aggressive and reliable Jos butler followed by Steve smith at number three, their top order looks Solid as rock as Middle order will be taken care of young players Sanju Samson and Krishnappa Gowtham.
They lack a mighty bowling line up and inconsistent form of the superstar all rounder Ben stokes might hurt. Absence of Ashton turner due to his International duty will be a gap to fill in the middle order.
If ben stokes finds form, it will be added to a huge strength to this batting line up.
Kings 11 Punjab:
Looks a little weaker side on paper, it looks more good when looked more keenly and tactically. Lets have a look at their side.
Universal boss Gayle and KL Rahul will be opening the batting and both the players found their form recently which makes opening a mighty threat to the opposition. Middle order is stuffed with in Form Mayank Agarwal, Nicolas Pooran, Karun Nair which adds a right balance to the side.
Bowling looks more good with Andrew Tye, Ravi Ashwin, Mujeeb ur Rahman and the new million dollar baby Varun chakravarthy coming in.
Even though they look balanced, inconsistency has made process difficult for Kings 11 Punjab in the past, they will have to find the Right main 11 and Ashwin’s leadership should be the best for them to make it big this year.
Our prediction – odds are with Rajasthan Royals, but we pick Kings 11 Punjab for a win in tomorrow’s game in Jaipur.
