Rajasthan Royals – Preview
Royals are currently at the bottom of the IPL table with just 6 points from nine matches. They have won just one – against Mumbai Indians – of their last six matches. Skipper Rahane need to do something quickly. First, he needs to settle down on the best batting line-up for the team. Second, he needs to improve his own form.
Rajasthan Royals have enough players to spark a recovery. The problem for the team is lack of collective effort. At the moment, they look like disjointed and lackluster. Only a brave punter will back them for cricket betting.
Kings XI Punjab – Preview
The fortunes of the team depends on how its top-order fares. Chris Gayle and KL Rahul have been explosive, while Karun Nair has been mostly solid. Marcus Stoinis too has made his presence felt. The Punjab side’s bowling too has been improving. Expect them to extend their winning run.
Prediction for cricket betting: Kings XI Punjab to win comfortably.
