IPL Fantasy 2019, Match 32, KXIP vs RR: Who will be the X-Factor in today's game?
- Both the teams will be desperate for a win.
The Kings XI Punjab will take on the Rajasthan Royals at the IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali for match 32 of Vivo IPL 2019 on April 16th. Both the sides need the win desperately and though RR are lower in the points table, they are in much better form than Punjab and this might not be an easy fixture for the Ashwin-led side.
Punjab have lost 2 games on the trot and their bowling attack is at fault. Ravichandran Ashwin might want to make a couple of changes and get the team balance right and they also need to send the right players into bat at the right time to procure maximum results.
RR meanwhile have been heavily dependent on Jos Buttler in their batting and have to make a brave decision and drop Steve Smith and bring Ashton Turner in. Their bowlers have done a mediocre job and need to up their game if they're to bowl to the likes of KL Rahul and Chris Gayle.
This match has a lot in it for both the sides and is expected to be a high-scoring game and a lot of runs and wickets can be expected. This is an ideal game for the IPL Fantasy players and on that note, let's take a look at who the Fantasy X-Factor will be for this match.
The batting of the Rajasthan Royals has revolved primarily around their star opener Jos Buttler, the Fantasy X-Factor for this match. Buttler really gave a proper thrashing to the Mumbai bowlers and is expected to continue his form against the Punjab bowlers who have proved to be hapless bowling to big hitters like him.
He will also be determined to score runs after being mankaded by Ashwin in the previous encounter, something which further spices up this match. He looks in sublime form and he could even go out of his way and score a ton in this game and he should certainly be backed for this match.
Chris Gayle, Sanju Samson and KL Rahul will be good fantasy options as well.
