RPS vs KXIP Today Match Prediction Preview:
Now KXIP and RPS moving towards the 2nd meeting of this IPL 2017. The first match between these teams was the IPL 2017 4th match at the home ground of Kings XI Punjab. That match was pretty awesome for the KXIP team or fans because they won that match very comfortably by chasing 168 runs on their home ground. The top performer in that match with the bat from the RPS side was Ben Stokes and Manoj Tiwary with 50 and 40 runs respectively and from bowling side, no one performed well. On the other hand, the top performer from the bowling side of KXIP was Sandeep Sharma who took 2 wickets and from the batting side, the top performer was Maxwell and Miller who scored 44 and 30 runs respectively and remains not out. Check the stats of that match:
Pune and KXIP both teams are in big trouble at the end of the league stage of the IIPL 2017 as a resurgent KXIP will take on RPS in a practical knockout match at the MCA Stadium on Sunday 14th of May.
Yet the IPL points table toppers Mumbai Indians are the only team to qualify for the playoffs with the 18 points, while the rest of 3 places are owned by KKR, RPS and SRH.
5th placed KXIP is on a fold lately & will be a hard nut to break for RPS, who are now at 16 points from total 13 matches with a net run-rate of -0.083. Kings XI Punjab with 14 points from an equal number of matches but have an approximately better run rate of +0.296. When the 2 teams will meet on Sunday, the comparison is pretty easy for KXIP. A win is all that they want to qualify as it will get them to 16 points with a better net run rate. The KXIP outlay does not have to look at any different results. For RPS, a failure will be dangerous if SRH wins their game against GL on Saturday & secure their playoff place with the 17 points. SRH already qualified for the playoffs by winnings the match against GL.
The Rising Pune have themselves to accuse of being in such a weak situation, after having passed down to DD by a mere 7 runs in their previous match at the Feroze shah Kotla stadium on 12th May. After restricting the DD to 168/8, RPS wavered in their chase with MK Tiwary playing the one-handed game while the rest of the RPS batsmen failed. Now on Sunday, RPS will hope for a solid batting effort in the form of Rahul Tripathi, Ben Stokes, Steve Smith besides MK Tiwary & MS Dhoni down the order and the opener Rahane’s poor performance is surely a cause of attention for the RPS captain Smith. RPS bowling department has the enormous advantage of having Stokes, whose deadly yorkers have made him the most valuable player in this IPL. Ben Stokes will leave the team after Sunday’s match to join his England for the ICC Champions Trophy.
New blood Jaydev Unadkat & Thakur have been effective so far with the new ball. KXIP, on the other hand, would want openers Manan Vohra, Martin Guptill and to give them a sound start before Wriddhiman Saha and captain Glenn Maxwell and Shaun Marsh can expedite their scoring rate. Great all-rounder of KXIP Axar Patel can also hit the ball out of the park towards the end. So overall this contest will be good and this one is a do-or-die match for both the teams.
