Kings XI Punjab is on an absolute roll with five wins on the trot. It has moved up the fourth position and is in a great position to push for a playoff spot. It is going to be taking on the Rajasthan Royals, a team that chased down 195 against the Mumbai Indians with ease in its previous match. Both KXIP and RR have been very inconsistent this season and this is why they are scrambling towards the end of the group stage. That inconsistency is also why we could have some tremendous betting opportunities to take advantage of.
KXIP vs RR IPL 2020 is going to be played at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi on the 30th of October 2020.
The addition of Chris Gayle has turned the fortunes of KXIP around. They are now the most dangerous team in the middle-order because Chris Gayle is hitting sixes against the spinners with ease. Nicholas Pooran too has made it a habit and playing aggressively straight from the first ball he faces. This means that KXXIP now has one of the strongest batting lineups in the entire competition.
In fact, Mayank Aggarwal has not played in the previous two matches, and with Mandeep Singh scoring runs in the previous match, it may be Deepak Hooda that has to make way when he returns.
Lokesh Rahul is continuing with his fantastic batting form in T20 cricket and looks far and away the best batsman of IPL 2020.
Perhaps, the one area in which KXIP has really improved is their middle and death overs bowling. Mohammad Shami attacks upfront, Arshdeep Singh and Chris Jordan take care of the death overs, while Ravi Bishnoi and M Ashwin keep things tight in the middle.
This is a bowling attack that lines up nicely against the Rajasthan Royals in our opinion.
KXIP is in great form and is currently boasting of a very well-balanced lineup. They will only get stronger as Mayank Aggarwal returns and whenever Glenn Maxwell hits some batting form.

Ben Stokes played an absolutely brilliant inning for a century against the Mumbai Indians. That was a world-class bowling attack that he took apart with ease. Sanju Samson also finally regained some form and played a measured inning of 54 with three sixes in there as well.
Robin Uthappa seems set to continue at the top of the order, not a bad thing at all, and Steve Smith promoted himself to 3. That, in our opinion, is the right place for him to bat. It gives the middle-order some depth and some serious six-hitting ability as Sanju Samson and Jos Buttler can take any bowling lineup apart.
Add Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, and Jofra Archer to the mix and you have a pretty long batting lineup.
We think RR can match KXIP in the batting but the bowling is where things get a bit tough for them.
Jofra Archer continues to pick up early wickets and makes RR a much more effective team than they actually are. Unfortunately, Ankit Rajpoot or Kartik Tyagi is not even in the same universe as Archer. The pressure drops when either of these two pacers comes on to bowl and scoring opportunities start appearing.
Shreyas Gopal and Rahul Tewatia have been decent without being outstanding in the middle.
This lineup is going to be tested against the KXIP lineup for sure, especially if Archer does not get any early wickets.
RV Uthappa, BA Stokes, Sanju Samson, Steven Smith, Jos Buttler, Riyan Parag, R Tewatia, Jofra Archer, S Gopal, VR Aaron, Kartik Tyagi.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to chase. Both KXIP and RR have done very well chasing recently and so they will want to continue doing the same if given the choice. The conditions also seem to suggest that the chasing team has an advantage.

Abu Dhabi has remained a venue where runs have been scored consistently. Close to 400 runs were scored in the most recent match between RR and MI played there. It appears as if there is some dew that helps make conditions for the team batting second a bit better.
There has been some extra bounce in the surface at Abu Dhabi which may suit someone like Jofra Archer.
A score of around 170 seems to par for the surface.

We are going to stick with KXIP as they try to make it six in a row. They have a stronger batting lineup and a bowling lineup that has regained its confidence after some poor performances. RR benefitted from some Ben Stokes brilliance in the previous match otherwise it could have been demolished by the Mumbai Indians. Such brilliance is not going to save it every time.
Bet on Kings XI Punjab to win.
KXIP is loaded at the top with Mayank Aggarwal also making a possible return to the team. They will be tested by Jofra Archer for sure but we think they have enough ammunition to finish with a higher score after the first 6. Chris Gayle at three and Nicholas Pooran at four could all smash the ball if a couple of wickets do fall.
We saw close to 400 runs being scored in the previous match in Abu Dhabi where both teams scored 190 plus. The surface is expected to much the same in this match and we could see another high-scoring encounter.
Both the teams have a very strong batting lineup as well. We think this is a bet worth the risk.
Lokesh Rahul, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, and Glenn Maxwell in one team? Yes, we will take this bet every single day of the weak! Most of the batsmen are in great form as well. Also, RR just does not have the kind of bowling strength to be able to keep this side quiet for too long.
This is our favorite bet of the match.
This betting market has got a bit depressed seeing as how some of the previous IPL matches were low-scoring. However, these are two teams that could get back into the flow of hitting sixes very easily. 11 sixes is not that many for the entire match, and even a moderately high scoring match will help you win.
