In the Spotlight

After a week of pulsating cricket, the caravan of the Indian Premiere League moves onto the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru where a beleagured Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on a confident Kings XI Punjab, who are coming of a comfortable win against the Delhi Daredevils in the opening encounter.

On that note, here’s a look at what Bet365 regarding the odds in today’s BLR vs PNJ IPL 2018 match:

Where: M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru

When: 13 April 2018, 8:00 PM

ODDS IN FAVOUR OF KEY PLAYERS FROM BOTH TEAMS

Top Batsman:

KL Rahul (KXIP): Rahul lit up the tournament with the fastest IPL fifty (50 off 13 balls), and helped set up a comfortable 6 wicket win for KXIP. and the odds in favor of him performing in today’s BLR vs PNJ IPL 2018 match is 13/5, meaning a return of 350 over a stake of Rs 100.

Mayank Agarwal (KXIP): With 1160 runs in Ranji Trophy, 723 runs in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and over 250 runs in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament at a strike rate of 144.94, it’s fair to say that Agarwal is in the form of his life, and odds of performing  in today’s BLR vs PNJ IPL 2018 match are 4/1 meaning a stake of Rs 500 over an investment of Rs 100.

Karun Nair (KXIP): Nair continued with his good run of form with a pristine and calm fifty to guide his team over the line against DD, and the odds in favor of him performing again in today’s BLR vs PNJ IPL 2018 match are 9/2, meaning a return of Rs 450 over a stake of 100.

Brendon McCullum (RCB): The former Kiwi skipper looked in imperious touch in the previous game, and the chances of him putting up a good show in today’s BLR vs PNJ IPL 2018 match are 7/2, meaning a return of Rs 350 over a stake of 100.

Virat Kohli (RCB): Expect the RCB captain to come storming back after an indifferent first match (31 off 33 balls), and the chances of it are 13/5, meaning a return of 350 over a stake of Rs 100.

AB de Villiers (RCB): AB was going great guns in the previous match, before a part-timer Nitish Rana brought a premature end to his innings. The chances of AB going beserk in today’s Ban vs Pun IPL 2018 match are 3/1, meaning a return of Rs 400 over a stake of 100.

Top Bowlers:

Andrew Tye (KXIP):  A match-winning performance (5-46 vs England) and a paycheck of $1.4 million (AU) in the IPL auctions, it was a pretty surreal day for Australian fast-bowler Andrew Tye.

A late bloomer, 31-year-old Tye is predominantly a limited-overs bowler who thrives on choking the batsmen with his nagging line and a plethora of subtle variations that tend to bamboozle even the best in the game, and the odds in favor of him performing in today’s Ban vs Pun IPL 2018 match are 3/1, meaning a return of Rs 400 over a stake of Rs 100.

Ravi Ashwin(KXIP); One of the few things that I am looking forward to in this IPL is how Ravichandran Ashwin fares in his captaincy debut. It has been a tough time for Ashwin off-late after having been sidelined from the limited-overs set-up, and his chances of emulating his International performances are 3/1, meaning a return of Rs 400 over a stake of Rs 100.

 Umesh Yadav (RCB): The Vidarbha pacer looked in imperious form in the last game and with figures of 2-27, was the pick of the RCB bowlers. The chances of Umesh replicating the same in today’s BLR vs PNJ IPL 2018 match are 11/4, meaning a return of Rs 375 over a stake of 100.

Yuzvendra Chahal (RCB): The vile leggie did not particulary have a good game against KKR, and he’d be looking to step-up in the familiar isles of the Chinnaswamy stadium, and the chances of him doing so in today’s BLR vs PNJ IPL 2018 match are 11/4, meaning a return of Rs 375 over 100.

BAN VS PUN MATCH WHO WILL WIN THE MATCH?

So, who will clinch today’s BLR vs PNJ IPL 2018 match?

As per Bet365, The odds in favor of Royal Challengers Bangalore winning the game is 4/7 meaning a return of Rs 157  over a stake of Rs 100 while that of Kings XI Punjab is 11/8, meaning a return of 237 over a bid of 100.
