RR vs KXIP Dream11 Match Prediction FREE TEAMS Today IPL Match 27 September

RR vs KXIP Dream11 Prediction: When the match was played at Sharjah last time, a total of 33 sixes were hit by the teams. And one of those teams Rajasthan Royals will go head to head against Kings XI Punjab at the same venue today. We can expect a run-feast again with plenty of quality batsmen on both the sides. We will preview RR vs KXIP Dream11 contest.

Rajasthan Royals began their campaign on a positive note with a win over Chennai Super kings here. Batting first, youngster Yashasvi Jaiswal went early but Sanju Samson (74) and Steve Smith (69) put on a power-hitting masterclass. A total of 13 sixes were hit between them but they faced a mini-collapse once both got out. In the last over, Jofra Archer took Lungi Ngidi for 4 sixes as RR posted 216 on the board. In reply, Rahul Tewatia was the most impressive bowler with 3 wickets while Jofra Archer proved to be the most economical. In the end, CSK fell short by 16 runs but they were never in the game realistically.

Kings XI Punjab are coming off from a similar batting performance against Royal Challengers Bangalore at Dubai. KL Rahul played an innings of his lifetime with an unbeaten 132 runs from just 69 balls. This innings included 7 sixes and 14 fours. Some of the shots that he played were right from the top drawer as bowlers felt helpless. KXIP put on 206 runs with some contributions from the other end. In reply, bowlers didn’t concede even an inch to RCB to come back into the match. After the early breakthroughs from Mohammad Shami and Sheldon Cottrell, leg-spinners ran riot to bundle out RCB for just 109 runs. Ravi Bishnoi and Murugan Ashwin scalped 3 wickets each.

Historically, the competition between these two teams has always remained neck and neck. Rajasthan Royals have won 10 matches while 9 matches have gone KXIP’s way in 19 clashes between them. However in last 5 matches, Kings XI Punjab have been successful to reverse the results with 4 victories over RR. Both the teams have already played a high-scoring match at the same venue in 2014 when Kings XI Punjab had chased down 191 against Rajasthan Royals with the help of Glenn Maxwell’s heroics.

Pitch and Conditions

Similar to the last match, a battle of sixes is expected today at Sharjah. Both the teams have plenty of power in their ranks that can cause mayhem in these conditions. The pitch will remain flat with significant short boundaries on one side of the ground. As the dew is expected later on, it will still be a better idea to chase down a total at this venue.

Kings XI Punjab Team News

  • Kings XI Punjab will have a couple of spots under consideration only because of the fact that match is taking place in Sharjah.
  • KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have been excellent so far but short boundaries at Sharjah could tempt team management to bring Chris Gayle in.
  • Glenn Maxwell and Nicholas Pooran should make best of this opportunity to play here and will look to get a decent innings under their belts. Krishnappa Gowtham can comeback in while Sarfaraz Khan will round-off the batting lineup.
  • Mohammad Shami and Sheldon Cottrell will be the fast-bowling options and Ravi Bishnoi has begun his IPL career very well. They played Murugan Ashwin in the last match but may look to replace him with a fast-bowler looking at the venue.

Captain Picks

For Small Leagues

  • Jos Buttler will play his first match this season after missing out in the last one. He won’t get better conditions than this to kick-off his IPL. He will also keep wickets most likely and that will add more points to his tally.
  • Sanju Samson is coming fresh from his innings of 74 runs from just 32 balls in the last match. The fact that they are playing at the same venue will present him with another opportunity to repeat the heroics again today. You should not be missing out on him today with immense fantasy potential.
  • KL Rahul is another in-form batsman in this encounter. After guiding KXIP to a win almost single-handedly against RCB, he will fancy his chances here. He needs to play out Jofra Archer carefully first up and then he can launch himself against the other bowlers.

For Grand Leagues

  • Steve Smith opened the innings in the last match but it will be interesting to see his batting position today. Either way, he will get plenty of overs to make an impact. Short boundaries can cause a massive help to the players like Steve Smith who are not power-hitters.
  • You should be packing your team with top-order batsmen for today. Mayank Agarwal is another solid option for the grand leagues. Just a game before, he made 89 against Delhi Capitals in a losing cause but looked in ominous touch.
  • Jofra Archer is one bowler who can be trusted in any conditions. He can get batsmen hurried up even on dead pitches. He extracted some extra bounce in the match against CSK here where other pacers were searching for their lengths. If he gets a hit with the bat in hand, that points will be a bonus for you.

Who will win RR vs KXIP Today Match Prediction?

As per our Today Match Prediction, Kings XI Punjab are slight favourites to register a win today against Rajasthan Royals.
