IPL 10: Can Kings XI stay afloat?

13 May 2017

"I thought the score was about par.we left ourselves little bit short".

On the other hand, Mumbai Indians would be testing their bench strength in this match also.

If Kings XI Punjab lose, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) and SRH would be assured of knock-out berths.

There is some cause to cheer for the bowlers though: Mitchell McClenaghan is in the fifth spot in the highest wicket-takers list (Purple Cap) with 17 wickets in 12 matches. Thus, we can not have a clear picture of how things might go today while we are doing today's match prediction. In stark contrast, Mumbai have lost just one match while chasing down a total. Even more telling is that his two wickets for the night were that of the Knight Riders two leading run-scorers in IPL 10.

As Guptill was looking in ominous touch, Hardik took a splendid running catch at long on, to send him back to the pavilion, giving Karn Sharma the first wicket.

Mumbai sitting comfortably at the top of the points table was handed a defeat by defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad.Captain Rohit Sharma's getting back into form has been their biggest plus.The opening looks formidable with West Indian Lendl Simmons forging a good partnership with diminutive wicket-keeper batsman Parthiv Patel.

With Sehwag now in charge of their cricket operations, though, the team has delivered a far better performance this season, winning six out of its 12 games.

Chris Lynn's brilliant 84 went in vain as Kings XI Punjab produced a clinical bowling and fielding show under pressure to beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 14 runs in a tense IPL match and keep themselves afloat in the tournament here yesterday. While Sandeep Sharma (16 wickets in 11 games@21.50) has been excellent with the new ball and hard to score off the old too, Mohit (11 wickets in 12 games@31.54) has been fantastic with his variations.

With no Hashim Amla and David Miller - left for national duties - Coach Virender Sehwag will have to graft a plan to overrule the threat of being the minnows in today's game.

Maxwell has been in form for the visiting side but hasn't made a big score yet.

Vietnam's President Tran Dai Quang is among the seven top leaders from Asean who will attend the forum in Beijing . Other experts say Chinese money is mostly skipping the key developing nations targeted by the initiative.

The momentum is with Kings XI, who have won three of their last four matches. Punjab will look to the same and the likes of Sandeep Sharma, Mohit Sharma will have to bowl in right areas to restrict the MI batsman.

Varun Aaron and Mohit Sharma have been able to ball a descent spell but lack in wicket taking ability.

While the Mumbai Indians remain the only team to have confirmed their place in the top four, they will fell a whole lot better if that confirmation also encompasses the top two.

The wicketkeeper-batman was the glue the kept the Kings XI Punjab innings together. No reason why they can not do it all over again to stop the Mumbai Indians juggernaut from enforcing riots at Wankhede Mumbai.
