Coming off 2 wins in the last 2 matches to get their season back on track, Kings XI Punjab will lock horns with Delhi Capitals in a bid to extend their good run. While KL Rahul, will have to do the bulk of the scoring for Punjab, Delhi will bank on Shikhar Dhawan to take their team to a good total.
KL Rahul in IPL - 77, 61*, 74, 11, 63
If anything, this is the most obvious choice for the best batsman of Kings XI Punjab against Delhi Capitals as Rahul has been in smashing form off late, holding the Orange Cap with unreal 525 runs in 9 matches at an amazing average of 75. Coming on to open the innings, he is middling almost every ball in the match as if it is as easy as eating a cake. He has been the backbone of the KXIP batting lineup and has played the role of an aggressor and a consolidator whenever required beautifully. In the last match again, he was at his smashing best against the world-class bowling lineup of Mumbai, scoring 77 runs in 51 deliveries. Hence, it is a relatively safe bet with high odds on Indibet</a>, which is going to be in favour of Rahul. Indibet is offering a 3.15x return on the bet, making it a low risk and high return bet.
Kings XI Punjab Top bowler - Mohammad Shami - @3.60
Mohammad Shami in IPL - 2/30, 2/45, 1/30, 1/40, 0/35
Shami has been in good form since the starting of this season, picking 14 wickets in 9 matches so far. Although he has got hit for some runs on a few occasions, he has made brilliant comebacks whenever the team has required his services and given that Punjab is frequently involved in high scoring matches, the economy is bound to be a little higher than usual. In the last match, he shocked everyone by defending 6 runs in the Super Over after already bowling pretty well in the normal 20-over duration. Given his impressive form, he has been the main bowler of Punjab since the start and will likely be the star performer for them in the game against Delhi as well. To take advantage of this opportunity, go to Indibet to place your bet and get a return of 3.6x on your capital.
Innings Runs - Kings XI Punjab - Over 160.5 - @1.89
Kings XI Punjab - 176, 177, 162, 132, 178
At Dubai - 176, 132, 178
Although KXIP have had a forgetful season so far, they have not been a low scoring team. In fact, in their last two matches, they have tried to make their way into the tournament by winning both the matches and breaking their long losing streak. They have crossed the threshold of 160 runs on all the occasions except one in their last 5 matches, courtesy to KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal at the start who have given some of the best starts to the Punjab based team. Now with the inclusion of Chris Gayle at number 3, who seems to be in good touch, having already scored a fifty in his first game of this edition, they have become stronger in their batting department with depth in the middle order. Even at the venue, they have been able to score more than 160 runs in 2 out of 3 times. Hence, it is very likely that they will put on a score that is more than 160 against Delhi and Indibet is offering a return of 1.89x on this bet.
