Kings XI Punjab Team News:
Kings XI Punjab has the chance to qualify for the playoffs, but they cannot afford to lose a single game from now on. After their devastating loss against Gujarat Lions, entry into playoffs will also depend on the result of Hyderabad’s next match against Mumbai.
Their Star opener, Hashim Amla has scored two centuries this season, 104 has been the score on both the occasions but will not be available for this crucial fixture due to international commitments, as like his teammate, kings XI franchise batsman David miller, who anyway was not in a good run of form in this edition of IPL. Martin Guptill’s form has shown sin wave fluctuation and will have to be persistent to show his prowess. Shaun Marsh in-turn has been excellent in the middle order giving much stability to the team. Glen Maxwell has scored 219 runs in 10 matches averaging 31. His highest was unbeaten 44 against Rising Pune Supergiant, which led to their victory. The All Rounder Axar Patel has done well with both ball and bat. His all-round performance gave Kings XI Punjab a much-needed victory against Gujarat Lions and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
The bowlers have remained average with their bowling performance. Sandeep Sharma is their highest wicket taker followed by Axar Patel and Mohit Sharma. But all three of them have failed to keep their economy rate below 6.
The last match against Gujarat Lions turned out to be a disaster, even after a sensational Golden ton by Hashim Amla. Their batters did their job well and it was just left to the bowlers and fielders to do the rest and unfortunately, they let themselves down with three dropped catches and some overthrows. Sandeep Sharma’s round the wicket debacle killed the momentum if there was any. Now, their chances look grim for qualification, with this loss. They will surely be keeping an eye on the Hyderabad’s result against Mumbai.
KXIP (Probable XI): Manan Vohra , Martin Guptill, Shaun Marsh, Gurkeerat singh, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Glenn Maxwell (capt), Axar Patel, Mohit Sharma, Varun Aaron, Sandeep Sharma, T Natarajan.
Kolkata Knight Riders News:
Kolkata Knight Riders have cemented their position into the playoffs with 16 points and 2 games at hand. But they will be looking to implant their position at least at no 2 position, which will give them an extra advantage to make it to finals through second qualifier, if they happen to lose the first one.
Chris Lynn made a whirling comeback with 22 ball 50 in the last match, after his shoulder injury. His return is a big boost for KKR batting on the top, while Sunil Naraine continuing his batting blitzkrieg. Skipper Gautam Gambhir has been in excellent form and is in line for orange cap. Robin Uthappa and Manish Pandey too are in top 10 list of highest run getter this IPL. Down the order the New Zealand all-rounder, Colin de Grandhomme, has shown his ability to hit big sixes. Yusuf Pathan has managed to score only 121 of 7 innings, which includes 39 ball 59 against Delhi Daredevils, but has been a handy fielder and good part time bowler.
Kolkata Knight Riders have a disciplined bowling line up. Umesh Yadav has displayed the same form which he has shown in the last test series. He has managed to take wickets at regular intervals. Chris Woakes is the leading wicket taker in the Kolkata Knight Riders camp, with 15 wickets in 12 innings. Sunil Naraine, despite his change in bowling action has done fairly well with the ball, picking up 9 wickets in 12 matches.
In the last match, KKR marked a 6 wickets victory against Royal Challengers Bangalore at Chinnaswamy stadium. Bowling first KKR restricted RCB at 158. Umesh Yadav took 2 two early wickets of RCB’s big guns Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle. He finished his spell taking 3 for 36. Chris Woakes took 1 wicket and Sunil Naraine took 2 for 29 is his 4 overs spell.
The batting has been exceptional for KKR, Chris Lynn returned from injury and played a sensational knock of 50 of just 22 balls, along with his opening partner Sunil Naraine, who made the fastest fifty of just 15 balls. Colin de Grandhomme and Gautam Gambhir played valuable innings in the middle making 31 and 14 respectively.
KKR (Probable XI): Gautam Gambhir (capt), Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa (wk), Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, Suryakumar Yadav, Colin de Grandhomme, Chris Woakes, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Umesh Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav
