Rajasthan Royals v Kings XI Punjab – Match Preview

Rajasthan won the inaugural IPL in 2008, but haven’t gained a title since. The Kings XI Punjab are still trying to win the IPL for the first time.

Their last four head-to-head meetings have brought KXIP three wins and the Royals just won. Interestingly, they tied an IPL match in 2015.

Where: Sharjah Cricket Stadium

When: Sunday, 26 September 2020

Start time: 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT)

Pitch conditions: This will be the second match of the IPL 2020 in Sharjah. The last one produced well over 400 runs. Another high-scoring affair is expected. Steven Smith and Sanju Samson scored brisk 50s against the Super Kings here recently.

Weather conditions: Not much is changing in the weather forecast across the United Arab Emirates. It’ll be very hot in Sharjah on Sunday, with temperatures nearing 40 degrees celsius. No rain is predicted. Dew will play a part as the match starts in the afternoon and ends in the evening.

Rajasthan Royals v Kings XI Punjab – Latest Odds

The odds are tight for this one with Funbet, who are new to our Indian betting sites list and have a wide variety of markets for the IPL.

Rajasthan Royals v Kings XI Punjab – Team News

The Royals should have Jos Buttler available. If he is to slot into the XI, David Miller might have to make way.

They are still without Ben Stokes, leaving plenty of onus on fellow all-rounder Rahul Tewatia.

Steven Smith seems the right man to be opening the batting. If they want extra pace in the bowling attack, Rajasthan can turn to Varun Aaron.

One wonders how long the Kings XI Punjab can afford to keep Chris Gayle and Mujeeb ur Rahman out of the team.

Gayle is among the superstars of the tournament and Mujeeb was in fine form in the recent CPL.

We’ll see if Jimmy Neesham is the preferred all-rounder from overseas rather than Chris Jordan again, too.

There’s plenty of excitement around the role of leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi. The 20-year-old could turn out to be the find of the IPL 2020.

Rajasthan Royals v Kings XI Punjab – Betting Tips and Prediction

Here are more free cricket match predictions from our team of experts. These IPL tips are based on the current form of the players, the best cricket odds and other important factors.

Choose Rahul to Be the Top Batsman for KXIP

KL Rahul produced the first century of the IPL 2020 recently. That was in Dubai. This match will be played in Sharjah, on a pitch that could be full of runs again.

Rahul is a good pick with 1xBet at 3.24 to be the top batsman for KXIP. You might even want to look at 1xBet’s market for him to be the top batsman overall and even player of the match.

1xBet have really pulled out all the stops for the IPL 2020. For this match alone, they have over 100 markets.

Take a Bet on Tewatia to Be the Top Bowler for Rajasthan

Rahul Tewatia succeeded where most of the other bowlers failed in Sharjah recently. He was able to take wickets when others couldn’t and his economy rate was reasonable.

With recent knowledge of conditions expected in Sharjah, he might succeed again – and is priced at 5.5 to be the top bowler for the Rajasthan Royals with LeoVegas.

Tewatia is an all-rounder, so he could be backed in the player of the match or top batsman markets with LeoVegas as well.

Back Maxwell to Hit the Most Sixes Overall

This match is going to be filled with range-hitters. Anyone of them could hit the most sixes in the match. But we are liking Glenn Maxwell to hit the highest number at 8.0 with 22Bet.

If not him, take your pick from Sanju Samson, David Miller, Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal and many more with 22Bet.
