RR vs KXIP Prediction: Toss, Pitch, Cricket Betting Tips for Rajasthan Royals vs Kings XI Punjab IPL 2020 Match 50

RR vs KXIP Prediction: Last time when these two sides met, we saw once in a lifetime innings from Rahul Tewatia and the match even went down to the last overs. This time the stakes are even more, with both teams eyeing a playoff berth, this match promises to be another nail-biting encounter.

Rajasthan Royals vs Kings XI Punjab
Indian Premier League 2020, Match 50
Date & Time: 30 October, 2020 at 7:30PM IST
Sheik Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, UAE

Strength

Kings XI Punjab:

  • In form top order. KL Rahul, Mandeep Singh, Chris Gayle, and Nicholas Pooran are in splendid form.
  • Mohammad Shami and young Bishnoi are in fine form.
  • After a string of losses, they have now finally stuck together as a unit.

Rajasthan Royals:

Who is the Best Test Batsman?

  • In Buttler, Smith, Stokes, and Samson, they have one of the most dynamic top four that a T20 team could ever wish for.
  • Most of their young players who bat in the lower middle order can be very handy with the bat. Players like Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag provides much greater batting depth to RR.
  • In Jofra Archer, they have one of the best T20 death over specialist.

Weakness

Kings XI Punjab:

  • Weak middle order. If the top order doesn’t fire, they are in very serious trouble. They would need timely support from Maxwell, and the rest of the middle order.
  • Except for young Arshdeep, KXIP’s death bowling is pretty ordinary. They haven’t been able to find the right man for the death overs.

Rajasthan Royals:

  • RR’s bowling is a huge worry. The domestic bowlers must complement Jofra Archer big time.
  • Ben Stokes, Sanju Samson, and Steve Smith are struggling for consistency. Apart from a few matches, they haven’t clicked so far.

With winning momentum on both sides, neither of them are expected to make any changes to their playing eleven. Unless Mayank is declared fit, KXIP is sure not to make any changes to the line-up. If Mayank is fit, then he will replace Deepak Hooda and Mandeep will be forced to serve in the middle order. For RR, things have now finally fallen into place and the only change that they might be considering is to bring in Jaydev Unadkat for Ankit Rajpoot by considering his slow ball expertise and the longer boundary dimensions in Abu Dhabi.

KXIP Playing XI: KL Rahul, Mandeep Singh, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Glenn Maxwell, Deepak Hooda/ Mandeep Singh, Chris Jordan, Murugan Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammad Shami, Arshdeep Singh
