Kings XI Punjab will lock horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore in the sixth match of the Indian Premier League 2020 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, in Dubai, on September 24, Thursday.
Two top teams will collide in Dubai tomorrow in a very crucial encounter as both teams will be looking to build momentum, which is crucial in terms of competing in the Indian Premier League. Kings XI Punjab may have lost the first game of the season but they have won the hearts of the fans with the kind of performance they put up in the first match. Royal Challengers Bangalore, on the other hand, have made a winning start to their campaign and Virat Kohli and co. will be looking to add to their first win of the season and that should boost their confidence. Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore have a lot of pedigree to put up a stellar show in this forthcoming fixture. Meanwhile, I have assorted three of the best team markets to bet on from this match. Why don't you take a closer look at them?
We are already five-match old in the Indian Premier League 2020 season and the excitement levels have gone off the roof. Now that we have two really exciting teams colliding in the next match, the battle of fours is going to get really exciting! However, I have a feeling that Kings XI Punjab are going to have their noses in front in this particular battle. I am asserting that because the two teams have played 24 matches in the history of the Indian Premier League and Kings Xi Punjab have clobbered 331 fours compared Royal Challengers Bangalore's 321 hits. In the last five head-to-head clashes, Kings XI Punjab have managed to add 62 fours against their name whereas Royal Challengers Bangalore have added 55 fours to their name. The last time these two sides collided at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai, Kings XI Punjab smashed 13 fours compared to just 9 fours of Royal Challengers Bangalore. 888 Sport and Unibet are offering the same odds of 2.05 for Kings XI Punjab to hit more fours in the forthcoming fixture between these two sides.
Kings XI Punjab may have taken the honours of hitting the most number of fours in the match but Royal Challengers Bangalore have the edge in smashing more sixes in the match. We need to keep one thing in mind, the most prolific hitter of the cricket ball, Chris gayle did not feature in the first match of the IPL 2020 for Kings XI Punjab in the first fixture, and that's what gives Royal Challengers Bangalore the edge over their opponent. The two teams have met 24 times in the previous seasons of the Indian Premier League and Royal Challengers Bangalore have smashed 143 sixes in as many games whereas Kings XI Punjab have managed only 118 hits against their name. In the last five head-to-head clashes, the Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers have clattered 24 sixes but Kings XI Punjab did better and smashed 30 sixes. Don't get bogged down with those numbers as the last time these two sides clashed at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai six years ago, Royal Challengers Bangalore managed to hit four sixes in that game and Kings XI Punjab could not hit any. Both 888 Sport and Unibet are offering similar odds of 2.00 for Royal Challengers Bangalore to hit more sixes in the game and that's what you should count on.
Now that we have come to the last segment of the article we are going to talk about the most interesting yet the most risky market of all. The two teams have collided 24 times in the previous seasons of the Indian Premier League and both teams have won 12 a piece. The last time Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore met at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai, the former had the last laugh. However, in the last eight head-to-head encounters Royal Challengers Bangalore won six of them! In the last two seasons of the Indian Premier League, Royal Challengers Bangalore won all four encounters. The current form is more important to me than the previous seasons and Royal Challengers Bangalore have gone off to a brilliant start. Betfair Exchange is offering odds of 1.72 for Royal Challengers Bangalore to emerge victorious in the next game and that looks like the most obvious outcome and the odds too, are indicative of the same.
