Two struggling outfits of this year’s IPL are meeting today. Gujarat Lions have won just one of their four matches. Royal Challengers, despite their star-studded entourage, have also won only one match from their five outings. In a way, Gujarat Lions’ problems were formed during the action. But for RCB, on-field problems are the cause of their worries. RCB will be the favorites for sure for this match (check live odds now). But Lions have been striving hard manfully in the last few matches.
Preview – Gujarat Lions
Brendon McCullum and Suresh Raina seem to have regained their form. Dinesh Karthik too looked in good nick. But you cannot trust Karthik for betting stakes, as he has been too inconsistent for far too long now. They need Ravindra Jadeja to fire on all cylinders in batting, bowling and fielding. What they lack are good Indian pace bowlers. Newcomer Basil Thampi bowled yorkers after yorkers in the slog overs in the match. Perhaps they need to try out Dhawal Kulkarni and Nathu Singh in the place of ageing players like Praveen Kumar and Munaf Patel.
Preview – Royal Challengers Bangalore
All you do is to look at their team sheet. You will know what to do in cricket betting. The team boasts of Virat Kohli, AB de Villers, Chris Gayle, Shane Watson and Samuel Badree cannot lag at the bottom of the table. They have a promising second line of players too: Kedar Jhadav, Manpreet Singh, Stuart Binny, Pawan Negi, Yuzvendra Chahal and Iqbal Abdullah. They can form a top-class team. However, they have not yet figured out their best eleven. Once they start winning, they can keep on winning. They can be such a strong side. Perhaps this could be the match that could create that spark in the team.
