The action and drama is set to intensify as IPL ’21 approaches the business-end of the group-stage.

Kolkata Knight Riders v Punjab Kings Betting Tips & Predictions
The KKR openers Shubhman Gill and Venkatesh Iyer have often provided the team with a rapid start in recent matches. Rahul Tripathi is their top-scorer while Nitish Rana has also found some form lately. Lockie Ferguson has made a huge impact in the UAE taking 7 wickets in 4 games.
KL Rahul is the key for Punjab Kings but Mayank Agarwal should be back after sitting out the last match while Aiden Markam has added stability to the middle-order. Ravi Bishnoi has been the pick of their bowler in the UAE with 5 wickets in the last 2 matches.

Mumbai Indians v Delhi Capitals Predictions
Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock are in good knick but MI will draw a lot of confidence from the last match as the middle-order propelled the team to victory. Ishan Kishan lost his place in the side and Suryakumar Yadav might share the same fate after a string of poor performances.
The Capitals brought in Steve Smith to replace Prithvi Shaw and the Aussie should keep his place at the top of the order. The batting-card is in quite good form while the fast-bowling trio of Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje and Avesh Khan have bagged 14 wickets between them in the last 3 matches.

Rajasthan Royals v Chennai Super Kings Cricket Match Betting Tips
The Royals have Evin Lewis, Yashashvi Jaiswal and Sanju Samson in good form but the rest of the batting-card has not contributed much of late. On the bowling side, Mustafizur Rahman has 5 wickets from the last 3 games but the lack of a real speedster is hurting the team.
CSK’s openers Rituraj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis are on a hot run while the middle-order is also slowly coming into form. Shardul Thakur has been their most impressive bowler in the UAE with 7 wickets and Dwayne Bravo should return to the team after missing the last match.

Royal Challengers Bangalore v Punjab Kings Tips & Predictions
Wicketkeeper Srikar Bharat has filled the bothersome no.3 role for RCB with two solid knocks and Glenn Maxwell has come roaring back into form with successive fifties. Meanwhile Hashal Patel has bagged 9 wickets in his last 3 matches to extend his lead at the top of bowling-charts.
By the time the date arrives, this could turn out to be a must-win encounter for Punjab Kings and they have a tendency for buckling under pressure. The team is still searching for sizable contributions from the lower middle-order and some consistency from their bowling-unit.
Top Royal Challengers Batsman: Devdutt Padikkal

Cricket Betting Predictions on Kolkata Knight Riders v Sunrisers Hyderabad
Kolkata Knight Riders have made tremendous improvement in the latter-half of IPL ’21 and the batting line-up is looking in decent form at the moment. While Lockie Ferguson has made a big difference to the team, spinner Sunil Narine has also adapted quite well to the conditions in the UAE.
Jason Roy replaced David Warner at the top of the order and scored a wonderful half-century and Kane Williamson also found his form with an unbeaten fifty as SRH picked up a rare win. Siddharth Kaul also came into the side to add some much needed pace to their bowling-unit.

Delhi Capitals v Chennai Super Kings Betting Tips
This could be the decisive clash to settle which team takes the all-important top-spot at the end of the regular-season. The DC batting-card looks in good form despite a minor setback in the last match while CSK’s top-3 have got lots of runs recently and the middle-order needs to join the party.
With strong batting line-ups on both sides it’s the bowlers who are likely to make the difference in this match. CSK has performed well in the bowling department in the UAE but the Capitals will hold the slight edge in this regard due to the consistency of their 3 main fast-bowlers.

IPL 2021 Predictions on Rajasthan Royals v Mumbai Indians Cricket Match
With both sides currently outside the top-4, this is a massive contest between these two teams in their attempts to reach the playoffs. Royals have not built any momentum in the UAE but the Indians have a tendency to lift their game in the big matches towards the deep-end of the competition.
Rajasthan Royals rely on a handful of batsmen for their runs and most of their bowlers are struggling in the Emirates. The MI batting-card is steadily clicking into gear and they also have the stronger bowling-unit with 3 vastly experienced fast-bowlers in their armoury.
Top Rajasthan Royals Batsman: Sanju Samson
Top Bowler of the Match: Jasprit Bumrah
