Gujarat Lions vs Kolkata Riders by Aditya9920
Kolkata Knight Riders are sitting on 14 points and will be looking to win this match after losing to RCB very badly, keeping their top 4 hopes still in doubt. This match is very important to them as Russell will be stiing out with an injury and a loss here make the final match against table toppers Sunrisers a must win. On the other hand, Gujarat is in the same situation to of the remaining two and given how poor their NRR is win they need to win 2 out of two for sure.
I would like to place this bet on the player performance. Robin Uthappa has been one solid batsmen and most importantly opener for the KKR and has been very instrumental with Gambhir. His keeping still needs to be improved, but nevertheless he didn't make any major mistakes in this IPL as far as the glove work is concerned. His batting was excellent at the start of the tournament, but some how it has hit the dip in the last few matches. He's connecting the ball well but been unlucky to not find the gaps. But, I think he will come back strong with the bat in this match, as this is a must win situation for them now. Also, given how many spinners KKR have in their lineup, he will surely gain some points through catches and stumping chances. Here are some of his key performances in 11 matches of IPL this season:
1st Match: 35 runs, 1 catch, 1 stumping
3rd Match: 38 runs, 1 catch
4th Match: 53 runs, 3 catches
6th Match: 36 runs
7th Match: 72 runs
9th Match: 70 runs
For all of those who don't know how player performance works:
- 1 pt for each run scored in the match
- 20 pts for each wicket taken
- 10 pts for each catch taken
- 20 points for a stumping/runout
and finally the stakes would be refunded if player doesn't make the playing XI. I see Uthappa scoring big in this match and expect him to take at least one or two catches.
Note: In case the match is shortened due to rain, as was the case in last match against Pune, in which match was shortened to 6 overs, the stakes will be refunded.
All the Best.
