Match 4 of the Vivo IPL 2019, and it’s the battle between the Royals and the Kings. While the Royals qualified for the playoffs last year, KXIP had a forgettable outing despite KL Rahul single-handedly carrying the team through on many occasions.
RR Probable XI : Ajinkya Rahane(c), Jos Buttler(wk)*, Sanju Samson, Steve Smith*, Ben
Stokes*, Rahul Tripathi, Krishnappa Gowtham, Shreyas Gopal, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev
Unadkat, Jofra Archer*.
KXIP Probable XI : Chris Gayle*, Lokesh Rahul (wk), Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair, Mandeep
Singh, Ravichandran Ashwin(c), Sam Curran*, Mujeeb Ur Rahman*, Varun Chakravarthy/Murugan Ashwin,
Mohammad Shami, Andrew Tye*.
KXIP broke the bank for new kid Varun Chakravarthy who is said to bowl 8 different varieties of spin and it would be interesting what he conjures up. The other two additions to the side are Sam Curran, the young lad who was a thorn in the Indian Test side last year, and Mohammad Shami, who comes in from Delhi Daredevils. KL and Gayle would want to continue from where they left off last year and wouldn’t that be a treat to watch!
RR on the other hand have more or less a similar side to last year, with the addition of Steve Smith who comes in after the ban and he, like Warner, would be looking to get some big runs behind him. Jos Buttler is in the form of his life and would most likely be a contender for the Orange Cap this year.
Match Predictions – RR to win this one.
