Match No.4 RR vs Kings XI Punjab - IPL 2019 Fantasy Team and Prediction

David Warner proved to be lethal. Now all eyes on Steve Smith. This is gonna be a competitive game and lot depends on the toss. KXIP have a strong line up as compared to RR. A lot will depend on Gayle and KL Rahul. If KXIP bat first and post a handy total of around 185 the game is on their side.
My picks. KL Rahul (Vice-captain), Ajinkya Rahane, Steve Smith (Captain), Chris Gayle, Ben Stokes, R. Ashwin, Jorfra Archer, Unadkat, Kulkarni, Mujeeb-ur-Rehman, M.Shami.
The match is in Jaipur and I expect intense competition.
Prediction- KXIP win.


Match prediction ----RR will win the match



Rajasthan Royals will win. Kings XI Punjab haven’t beaten the Rajasthan Royals in 5 previous visits to the Sawai Mansingh Stadium.

Hmm. Nice team Yash. I would, however, take a different approach. My team unlike yours would be top heavy. Why? Two reasons:
The pitch in Jaipur is a batting friendly and generally, you can expect a score of 170 easily also its march that is hot and humid weather, therefore no swing even under the lights. For me the team would be:
Wicket Keeper: Jos Butler, I am simply afraid of this guy’s consistency and hitting power.


Chris Gayle: On his day he can win you the game single-handedly
Mayank Agarwal: His consistency is dangerous
Sanju Samson: Always starts well in the starting
Rahul Tripathi: A quickfire 30-40, also can play as a floater

All Rounders:
Ben Stokes
K Gowtham
Sam Curran: Unknown Quantity For Now. Could prove useful.

Jofra Archer: My Dark Horse for this game
Andrew Tye: Purple Cap Holder from the Last Season
Mujeeb Ur Rahman: Starts The Bowling


For me RR is favorite today. My team :

Openers Butler, KL Rahul

Batters : Rahane, Smith, Agarwal

Allrounder : Stoke, Curran, Gowtham

Bowlers : Ashwin, Shami, Unadkat.
