KXIP vs RPS, 4th Match Preview, likely XI and other Info

Fixture: Kings XI Punjab vs Rising Pune Supergiant, 4th Match
Time/Date: 10:30 AM GMT/ 4:00 PM Local/ 08 April 2017
Venue: Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore
Here we will be talking about the possible scenarios of the match that could help the fantasy players such as Dream11 users to make their Dream team and help them win big.

Match and Pitch Condition

Weather: Since the match is starting at 4:00 PM, the temperature is expected to be high during the first inning (around 36°C).N

Pitch Condition: The boundaries of the Holkar Stadium are small and the pitch is expected to be flat and not much help for the bowlers. Seamers might come into play. An another high scoring match is on the cards.

Probable Playing XI: (In the Batting order)

Kings XI Punjab: Hashim Amla, Manan Vohra, Glenn Maxwell, Eoin Morgan, Wridhimann Saha, David Miller, Axar Patel, Sandeep Sharma, Mohit Sharma, T Natarajan, KC Kariappa.

Rising Pune Supergiant: Ajinkya Rahane, Mayank Agarwal, Steven Smith(c), MS Dhoni(wk), Manoj Tiwary, Ben Stokes, Rajat Bhatia, Jaydev Unadkat, Adam Zampa, Imran Tahir, Shardul Thakur.

This is the most likely playing XIs for GL and KKR. However, if there are some changes in the above team, what could that be?


Possible Changes

For Kings XI Punjab:

  • Marcus Stoinis could come in place of  Eoin Morgan or David Miller.
  • Varun Aaron can replace either of the pacer T Natarajan or Mohit Sharma or spinner KC Kariappa.

For Rising Pune Supergiant:

  • In the last match, Ashok Dinda and Deepak Chahar went for a lot of runs and they could be replaced by Jaydev Unadkat and Shardul Thakur. One change is very likely, Unadkat will come in for Deepak Chahar.

All players of both teams are available for selection.


Key Players

  • If Stoinis gets a chance to play, there is a possibility that he could open the inning. So he could be a key player.
  • Hashim Amla was in ominous touch in the practice matches. So expect him to go big on a flat pitch.
  • Steven Smith is another key player and a top contender for the captain of fantasy teams.


My top contenders for captain and vice captain are:

Steven Smith, Hashim Amla, David Miller, Ben Stokes.
