KXIP vs RCB, 8th Match Preview, Probable XI and other Info

Fixture: Kings XI Punjab vs Royal Challengers Bangalore, 8th Match.
Time/Date: 02:30 PM GMT/ 8:00 PM Local/ 10 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: Weather is expected to be clear and pleasant during the course of the match.

Pitch Condition: In the last match on this ground, Pune scored 163 which proved to be below par as KXIP chased it down with 6 balls to spare. On a ground that has short boundaries and flat pitch, a high scoring game can be expected. The team winning the toss is expected to bowl first.

Probable Playing XI: (In the Batting order)

KXIP would not want to tinker with the lineup that won the last game comfortably on this same ground.

Kings XI Punjab: Hashim Amla, Manan Vohra, Wridhimann Saha, Glenn Maxwell, David Miller, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Swapnil Singh, Sandeep Sharma, Mohit Sharma, T Natarajan.

Bangalore have two scenarios ahead – Either AB de Villiers play or not. On a video on RCB youtube channel, AB said that he is likely to play next match. But still, we will take two cases. The probable playing XI in each scenario is

If AB de Villiers plays

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Chris Gayle, Mandeep Singh, AB de Villiers, Shane Watson(c), Kedar Jadhav(wk), Vishnu Vinod, Pawan Negi, Tymal Mills, Aniket Chaudhary, Iqbal Abdulla/Sreenath Aravind, Yuzvendra Chahal.

If AB de Villiers doesn’t play

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Chris Gayle, Mandeep Singh, Shane Watson(c), Kedar Jadhav(wk), Vishnu Vinod, Stuart Binny, Pawan Negi, Tymal Mills, Aniket Chaudhary/Iqbal Abdulla, Yuzvendra Chahal, Billy Stanlake.


Key Players

  • Shane Watson: He is long due for a good inning off the bat. Expect him to go big on a ground with short boundaries. He usually has some tricks up his sleeve with his bowling too.
  • AB de Villiers: If he plays today’s match, expect him to go all guns blazing on KXIP bowlers.
  • Kedar Jadhav: He is getting better and better every day. With the form he is in, it would be tough to keep him out of your fantasy team.
  • David Miller: He has been in great touch recently in South Africa’s domestic league. However, he is a weak player of spin and that could go against him.
  • Axar Patel: An uncanny customer with the ball and hard hitter with the bat. Great to have him on your team.


My Dream11 pick

These teams are a rough idea of what the writer thinks are most likely to perform. Take others opinion and think about it. If you think they are right only then consider it. Go with your guts.
