Tactical Punts/Strategy/Insights for today's game. This is a big match for both KKR and SRH (coming from losses). 1. SRH need to boost their middle order, with Warner, Bairstow, and Rashid a given, Williamson has to come in to give a boost to the middle order 2. Implying Nabi misses out, a difficult choice to make. Another fact is that bowling needs to add some miles to it, due to overseas rules, Billy Stanlake cant make it, but SRH may look at having Khaleel in the playing eleven

Tactical Punt/Insights into today's game RCB vs Kings Eleven. This will be a fascinating match almost a Bangalore Derby with more Karnataka players in Kings Eleven camp
1.With Mayank playing a crucial knock in previous match, KL Rahul should assume the attacking role (2018 mode) 2. till Mayank is batting with him (Mayank can play the anchor role). Not many in world cricket can match KL in full flow (Score at 150+ strike rate), and he must play in that mode. In case Mayank gets out, then KL can take the anchor role with shot makers around him.

Tactical punts/insights in today's game
1. mumbai Indians take pride in having a strong middle lower middle order, but even they will struggle to match the might of KKR's set up with morgan, Karthik and Russell 1/8 2. AbuDhabi with notso flat pitches & big boundaries, optimum score is arnd 150-160.big hitters who traditionally play fewer balls, but with a 200+ strikerate consistently, may not find d going that easy (barring exceptions)&hence need to be more judicious in shot selection 2/8

India has a special pace bowling attack. The numbers back it, and it is an all weather attack employing different skills - reverse swing /sg ball, pace and bounce /Kookaburra and swing /duke. We must appreciate this golden period of Indian attack Image What is heartening to see is good reservoir of bowling - Navdeep Saini will be a handful with his pace and bounce on south african and Australian pitches. Bhuvi with his swing will be fantastic in England /new Zealand. Umesh with his pace and reverse swing.

Yes England are favourites, but don't write off west indies. Since 2015 , England and west indies have played in 9 test matches both home and away, and England and west indies both have won 4 each with one drawn #westindiesvseng (1/n).... One of the famous victories was in Leeds , when chasing 322 in second innings owing to strong contribution from Braithwaite and shai hope , Windies chased down the total (2/n)..

Spinners in IPL. Looking at the last 3 seasons.
Best Strike Rate: Shreyas Gopal (RR) is way ahead of everyone else followed by Chahal & Rashid.

#IPL #CricketAnalytics #IPLAnalytics #spinners Image Spinners Economy Rate in the last 3 seasons:
Rashid is the most economical spinner followed by Moin (@RCBTweets plz note) and Krunal.
Chahal, Narine and Gopal bowl in powerplay and hence a little expensive though not far behind.
