Dream XI Team KXIP vs RR IPL 2019 – Cricket Predictions Tips For Todays IPL Match Punjab vs Rajasthan at IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali: With just two wins from seven games, Rajasthan Royals will be desperate for a win when they take on Kings XI Punjab at the I.S. Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Tuesday in order to keep their chances alive of making it to the playoffs in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Ajinkya Rahane’s men would also be seeking revenge for their previous loss against the home side when the two teams met on March 25. That match was, however, marred by controversy when R Ashwin ‘Mankaded’ England batsman Jos Buttler at a crucial moment in the match that Rajasthan went on to lose. The manner of the dismissal created ripples across the cricketing fraternity with many former greats criticising the Indian off-spinner for breaching the ‘spirit of the game’. However, Ashwin stated that whatever he did was within the rules of the game and added that his ‘conscience was clear’.
Rajasthan Royals, who are sitting at the second last spot in the points table, would, however, be feeling a little confident after their win against Mumbai Indians in their last game. On the other hand, Punjab, who are at the fifth spot in the points table, are coming after facing defeat at the hands of bottom-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore. They would be hoping that the swashbuckling West Indies opener Chris Gayle once again continues his rich form which he displayed against Virat Kohli’s men and contributes to the team’s cause.

Dream XI Predictions:
Wicketkeeping – It will be a tricky choice to pick between the two solid keepers – KL and Jos Buttler. But in-form Butt;er is anyday a big threat to the opposition than Rahul. Also, Buttler’s current batting form and his ability to read the situation better makes him a valuable asset for the side.
Batting – Both Punjab and Rajasthan boast of some of the biggest names of world cricket ranging from – Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, Steve Smith, Ajinkya Rahane, David Miller, Sanju Samson or Mayank Agarwal. As the Mohali track is known to help the batters a little more – it would be ideal to pick batsmen who can dominate from the word go. Gayle, Rahul, Samson, Mayank, Miller would be ideal choice for the batsmen’s role.
Bowling – Keeping the nature of Mohali track in mind, the role of Mohammed Shami, Jofra Archer become very crucial for their respective sides. R Ashwin and Shreyas Gopal can be picked as the two spinners in the side.
All-Rounder – It’s a no-brainer keeping in mind the smashing all-round abilities of Ben Stokes in mind, no individual will even dare to drop him from his/her fantasy XI.
