Best buys of KXIP in IPL 2020 

Sheldon Cottrell-

The Caribbean pacer is getting likes from around the world, apart from his bowling skills; his way to celebrate his wicket is becoming popular among the cricket fans. After Andrew Tye was released there was a void for specialist pacer in the team which is well fulfilled with Sheldon Cottrell. He was taken for a bounty of 8.5 crore which he himself must not have thought of making his base price at 50 lakhs. 

 

Glenn Maxwell-

Another big name and bigger hitter, the Aussie all rounder did not perform well in the past few season, but his potential cannot be ignored. He has made big runs for KXIP earlier and the franchise would be hoping the same from Maxwell this season as well. He has variety of shots and can win matches for the team once he is set. So the hopes and price is really high on Maxwell.

 

Best KXIP players to bet on in IPL 2020:

1. Batsman

  • KL Rahul: The young gun wicket-keeper batsman is also the captain of Kings XI Punjab. The ease through which he plays his shots is a delight to watch. He has been leading run chase for the team and has had two amazing previous season in which he has also scored centuries. Once set he can hit the bowl for boundaries at his will. KL Rahul will be a must to bet on.
  • Chris Gayle: This man needs no introduction; his stats speak for the stature of player he is. The ‘Universe Boss’ will be opening for KXIP once again this season and there is sure to get power hitting from the Caribbean batsman. Chris Gayle can toy with the bowlers once he is set. Gayle has made 6 centuries in IPL so far and this season there would be chances of Gayle storm coming into action again.

2. Bowlers

  • Sheldon Cottrell: Cottrell has gained popularity in India quite quickly especially because of his was of celebration after the wicket. But don’t mistake him just for his celebration, he is a quality pacer and has variety of bowling options. He can deliver quick Yorkers in the death overs and can take wickets in the middle overs as well. The Caribbean pacer hasn’t had the best of tournament in CPL but has great talent by which he can put the opponent batsman under pressure.
  • M. Shami: Mohammad Shami has proved that a bowler can make comeback if he prepares well. He has performed very well in 2019 which made him one of the leading wicket-takers in limited over cricket. His ability to bowl at good line and length can trouble the batsman. He will be a wise choice for Kings XI Punjab and is worth putting your bets on.

3. All Rounder

  • Glenn Maxwell: The Aussie all rounder has shared a good bond with KXIP. He has made valuable runs for the team and whenever he has performed well in the season, the team has reached the top 4 of IPL tournament. He has ability to hit big boundaries and make quick runs for the team. Maxwell can also bowl as part time spinner whenever required so he is a definite player to put your bids.

Kings XI Punjab Winning Odds

Kings XI Punjab has always remained very unpredictable in the IPL tournament from the start and neither the winning odds remain consistent for a long time. Their odds are placed at 10.0 which give them the winning chance of just 8.60 % which cannot be considered very appreciable.

The team does have some match winners but since the matches will be held in UAE, there could be a chance of ball turning with the spin and presence of quality spinners becomes important. This team does have some match winners but they have not performed very consistently. Hence this season may not favour the kings yet again.

The winning odds of Kings XI Punjab are placed at 10.00 by Prokhel. BET NOW.

KXIP Strength

This time the major strength will be their batting department, they have quality all-rounders and heavy hard hitting openers. T20 specialists like Chris Gayle can easily change the course of the game, and of Maxwell performs well, KXIP can be a dangerous side to face in terms of batting. KL Rahul has shown his skills and is on top form right now. The balance also looks good in middle order. If everything goes by well by their side, they could give tough competition to other sides.

 

KXIP Weakness

This side looks a little weak on quality spin bowling; they released their top spinner R. Ashwin who was their major wicket-taker last season. His experience also gave support to KL Rahul which won’t happen this time. Mujeeb ur Rahman is a good choice but he will have to match the performance of Ashwin if the team needs quick wickets.

Also the Indian players in the team are not much experienced in terms of exposure to world class cricket. Most of them have performed well in domestic cricket but have not been able to deliver in International Cricket. So the side would be heavily dependent on KL and the international players to perform well.
