Prediction - KXIP To Win The Match

Fantasy Team


KXIP squandered a won match! they had match in the bag with 22 needed of 18 with only one wicket down. But a hoick by Pooran and uncertain batting by a rookie Prabhsimran Singh steered everything south. That over by Naraine put Rahul under pressure and he succumbed. Prabhsimran Singh and Mandeep Singh couldn’t handle it and it resulted in Maxwell having to too do too much in the end.

A SAsque choking by KXIP. :roll_eyes:

It’s concern Rahul failing to finish the match. But may be it’s too much to ask from him. It would be perhaps unfair to him to expect to play as opener and finisher both. KXIP needs to look into their middle order. They don’t seem to have much if Maxi doesn’t perform.


KKR beat KXIP by 2 runs

KL Rahul (74) and Mayank Agarwal (56) opening partnership go in vain!
