KKR VS RCB
There is nothing much to distinguish betweeeb the sides at this juncture. But Still KK looks strong contenders for the top 4. They would be pushed down if SRH loses against Rajahasthan Royals in first of double header today. KKR’s ex skipper is also not having great time either. Gautham Gambhir has relinquished his captaincy before the last game against KKR. Shreyas iyer had a great start as captain.
Royal challengers Bangalore
Royal challengers have worst economy of all the teams. They concede @9.70 runs per over. This contributes most of their woes. Though they won last game, they cannot afford to play with unchanged bowling line up. They lack impact bowler who can take wickets as well as contain in the middle order. They conceded 50 runs when CSK required them in just 3 overs. Moen Ali can come in to the team. But that would further deteroite their bowling. May be they should take it granted that their top three would certainly fire in every game.
Kolkata knight raiders
Chris Lynn was absolute disaster in the tournament. Only significant score he made in the tournament was 74 against Punjab. Sunil narine is the only in top 3 looked certain to fire. Nitesh Rana is a huge asset to fill the slot of uncapped player. Shubham Gill is unfortunate for not getting a proper chance. His U19 contemporary Prithwi Shah is having dream start to IPl career. Robin Uthappa is just 39 runs aay from finishing 4000 runs in IPl. If he does the same, he would also complete 2000 runs for KKR
