This year, the IPL has been a huge success among fans who have gained record viewership worldwide. Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals are face to face in this match.Both teams will look to continue their winning momentum and get some important points on the table as soon as possible. Rajasthan Royals played their first match on this pitch and would have a better understanding of the conditions than Kings XI Punjab. We can expect a rift competition between two of the quality T20 sides with many exciting players.
Rajasthan Royals posted a mammoth total of 216 runs in the last match. Sanju Samson (74 runs) and Steve Smith were the highest run scorers for the team and a huge 121-run partnership between them. Jose Butler is expected to return to the playing eleven in this match and David Miller can make way for him.
Rahul Tewatia was a surprise package with the ball as he took 3 crucial wickets in the middle overs. Tom Curran, Shreyas Gopal and Jofra Archer kept the wicket and chased the opposition runs in the chase.
Sanju Samson – Samson scored 74 runs in just 32 balls with the help of 9 sixes and hit only one four. He was too serious to hit sixes at the will of the spinners. He is in great touch and we expect him to score big in this match too.
Jofra Archer – Jofra Archer made an excellent performance by scoring 27 runs off 8 balls with 4 sixes in the final overs and put up a great spell of 4-0-26-1 to restrict the opposition batsmen.
Kings XI Punjab
Kings XI Punjab scored 206 runs on 132 runs by skipper KL Rahul. Mayank Agarwal (26 runs), Nicholas Pooran (17 runs), and Karun Nair (15 * runs) played a little cameo in the middle to form a 50+ partnership with KL Rahul.
Punjab added two leg-spinners Ravi Bishnoi and Murugan Ashwin and both took 3 wickets in the match. Earlier Mohammed Shami and Sheldon Cottrell reduced the opposition top order to 4/3 within 3 overs. Glenn Maxwell shared a Jimmy Neesham quota of fifth bowling option of overs.
Rahul – KL Rahul remained invincible last night and played a perfect T20 innings by first building a stage and then charging in the latter part of the innings. He scored 90 runs in 60 balls without any time and scored 132 runs in 69 balls.
Ravi Bishnoi – In both the matches played so far, the youngsters were impressed with the leggy ball. He has so far taken 4 wickets in two matches at an economy rate of less than 6 RPOs.
RR vs KXIP-Today Match Prediction-Rajasthan Royals vs Kings XI Punjab, 9th T20 IPL 2020-Who Will Win
Kings XI Punjab have a great batting with the likes of Rahul and Mayank at the top after Maxwell, Puran, Karun Nair and Jimmy Neesham. The Rajasthan Royals rely heavily on the top-4 which includes Butler, Smith and Samson and the middle order looks a bit weak on paper. Punjab Pacers have been right on the money in both their matches and their spinners complement them perfectly. The Rajasthan bowlers intercepted Archer and Teotia last night and took the scavengers. We expect Kings XI Punjab to win this match due to their balanced playing XI and team combination.
Sharjah is expected to have hot and humid weather with dew in the second half of the match. We expect the match to proceed without any interruption.
Sharjah is a batting friendly pitch, where we can expect high scores in the range of 200+ runs with short ranges. The bowlers need to work smartly to restrict the batsmen on this pitch.
Teams have so far opted to bowl first after winning the toss in all matches, but chasing teams have won just one of the 7 matches played. We expect the trend to change and captains will be expected to bat first if they win the toss.
