KXIP vs RR Dream11 Team Prediction | 50th Match | Dream11 IPL 2020
Kings XI Punjab will take on Rajasthan Royals in the 50th Match of Dream11 IPL 2020 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. We will provide KXIP vs RR Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Dream11 Tips.
Kings XI Punjab:
The Kings XI have made a strong comeback in the race for playoffs by winning five consecutive matches and are currently at the 4th position on the points table with six wins and six losses and a total of 12 points.
The batting department has appeared to be in perfect touch as KL Rahul has been consistently scoring runs from the top and is the leading run-scorer so far in this season. Mayank has faced an injury and has been not playing for the past couple of matches.
Universe Boss Chris Gayle has been fortunate for KXIP as they have won all the matches that he has played so far in this season. The middle-order has also looked good with players like Nicholas Pooran, Glenn Maxwell, Deepak Hooda, and Chris Jordan. Their main concern would be Maxwell who has struggled a lot and completely looked out of form this season.
Bowlers have stepped up their game from the past few matches and have played a significant role in the victory for KXIP. Shami has been the star bowler in the squad so far in this season, and he has been very well accompanied by youngster Arshdeep Singh and the bowling allrounder Chris Jordan.
Both the leg-spinners Ravi Bishnoi and Murugan Ashwin have been bowling brilliantly in the middle overs and picking up crucial wickets.
KXIP is looking in excellent form, and if they continue to play the same way, then there are chances that they can even get into Top 2 of the points table.
- Skipper KL Rahul and Mandeep Singh/Mayank Agarwal will open the inning for KXIP.
- The middle-order will comprise of Chris Gayle, N Pooran, and Glenn Maxwell.
- Deepak Hooda/Mandeep Singh and Chris Jordan will look after the lower middle order.
- M Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, and Glenn Maxwell will be the spin attack of the team.
- Mohammad Shami, Arshdeep Singh, and Chris Jordan are the team’s pace bowling attack.

Rajasthan Royals are having a tough time this season as they are currently at the 7th position on the points table with five wins and seven losses and 10 points.
Ben Stoke played brilliantly in the last match, scoring an unbeaten hundred and lead his team to victory. Finally, the batsmen are looking in the right touch, which will be an excellent advantage for the team because most of the matches that they have lost are due to failure in their batting.
Robin Uthappa is also striking the ball well but hasn’t been able to play a big inning so far, and Sanju Samson has also looked back in form by the way he played in the last match. In the middle-order, Steve Smith has been batting decently but has been playing very slowly.
At NO.5 Jos Buttler has been doing his role correctly as a finisher. Riyan Parag and Rahul Tewatia along with Jofra Archer in the lower middle order add a lot of batting depth to the team.
Jofra Archer has been brilliant with the ball and has picked up most wickets in his team. He has been accompanied by the young Kartik Tyagi who has been expensive on some occasions but has also picked up wickets consistently. The third fast bowler has been an area of concern for Rajasthan.
Both the leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal and Rahul Tewatia have done a decent job for RR but haven’t been able to pick up many wickets.
Rajasthan Royals still have a chance to qualify for playoffs if they win both their remaining matches, but if they lose this match, they would be officially out of the race for playoffs.
- Robin Uthappa and Ben Stokes will open the innings for RR.
- Sanju Samson will bat at No.3, followed by Steve Smith and Jos Buttler.
- All-rounders Riyan Parag and Rahul Tewatia will play a crucial role in the lower middle order.
- Shreyas Gopal and Rahul Tewatia will form the spin attack of the team.
- The pace attack will consist of Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer, Kartik Tyagi, and Ankit Rajpoot/Jaydev Unadkat.
