IPL 2018 48th Match: KXIP vs RCB Match Predictions
The Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore have just three games remaining to try and land a spot in the knockout stages of the IPL. The Challengers are near the bottom of the table, but not out of this while the Kings XI are well placed, but in recent games they have played poor and won just one of their last five games. Both teams need the points, especially the Kings XI, who are desperate to find something that will spark them into life once more. Who will win 14th May KXIP vs RCB prediction is placed below.
We saw the Kings XI dominate games that the start of their campaign, but in recent games something has been missing. On Saturday they were beaten by the Kolkata Knight Riders, and what cost them that day was a very poor bowling performance. They allowed the Knight Riders to put a huge 245 on the board, and despite a good batting performance, the Kings XI only put 214 on the board and lost the game. It doesn’t matter what league you are playing in around the world, you cannot allow 245 runs and expect to win a game, even more so at this level. The Kings XI are in a race for the knockout round right now, and they have to perform better if they want to get there.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore are highly unlikely to get up into a qualification spot, but I am sure they won’t give up until it is impossible for them to do so. They have three games to do it, and have the potential in their squad despite overall being very disappointing this season. They kept their hopes alive, and kept away from the bottom of the table with a win on Saturday against bottom club the Delhi Daredevils, and need more of the same if they want to continue moving up the table. A 70 for Virat Kohli led the way, we all know how good he is and he could be the one that drags this team through. KXIP vs RCB match prediction 14th May 2018 is placed below.
KXIP vs RCB IPL 2018 Prediction
Both teams need two points to help them chase a spot in the elimination round, with the Kings XI in the best position out of these two right now. They have been disappointing in recent games, and must sort out their bowling but I am going to back them to win here. The Challengers don’t have great bowling either, so this game should be full of runs and I am going for the Kings XI Punjab to come out on top.
