- Rising Pune Supergiant vs Gujarat Lions
Among these, Royal Challengers have crashed out of the IPL. And the star-studded IPL team has become a butt of jokes in the social media. Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, have almost ensured their play-offs berth. Pune Supergiant and Gujarat Lions both need a win. The clash between these teams will be the most interesting match for punting at 12BET
Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore – Preview
There has been an interesting pattern in the matches between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers. The Mumbai team tends to win in Bangalore and the Bangalore outfit tends to win in Mumbai. However, this time, it may not happen. RCB’s much hyped batting line-up is struggling to even cross the three-figure mark. The big stars are struggling big time. They can still win, provided Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Chris Gayle can find form.
In fact, Mumbai Indians seem to have lost their early form. They have been struggling, especially with the bat, in the last few matches. The Mumbai pitch too has become spinner-friendly. RCB have the spinners to exploit the conditions. The big question is whether their batting will hold up?
Prediction: It is time the stars in Royal Challengers flourished. RCB to win comfortably.
Rising Pune Supergiant vs Gujarat Lions
Both the teams badly need a win. The Pune team has 10 points from nine matches. They can afford a loss, as three or four wins from their next five matches will take them to playoffs. However, they will not want to leave this chance to keep out Gujarat Lions from the playoffs race go waste. Batting is their strongest suite. Their bowling too has improved in recent matches. The team looks good enough to reach the next stage.
For Gujarat Lions, one loss will mean end of the road. The team has shrugged off the early poor form. One has to say that the team is collectively punching above their weight. Still, positive results are not forthcoming. They are unlikely to make it to the next stage.
Prediction: Pune Supergiant are going to win.
