Preview of IPL T20 2015 3rd Match: This is third match of Pepsi IPL 2015 between last seasons of IPL 2014 title clash team Kings XI Punjab and one time title winner Rajasthan Royals.

One side, Kings XI Punjab trying to continue his performance as previous year and other side Rajasthan Royals recover his performance and not repeat it ones again as IPL 2014. Both the team looks stable, confident and strong in all field either it is bating lineup, bowling and/or fielding side. Because it is the first match for both the team, so both wants to start his Pepsi IPL 2015 journey with a King and/or Royal style.

There is no doubt both team have many match winner and have own ability to change the game at any moment. Kings XI Punjab seems fully balanced in batting with George Bailey, VirenderSehwag, David Miller like world class batsman. In the bowling area of Kings XI Punjab Australian bowler Mitchell Johnson lead his team and have guts to stop the other side batsman and take control at any moment. This time Kings XI Punjab have many all-rounder’s Glenn Maxwell, ThisaraPerera and many more. Glenn Maxwell is all time seem very dangerous for the other side bowlers, and this time he is in full touch of cricket. Recently he played as a hero in World cup 2015. So he gives more strength to the team.

Strength of Kings XI Punjab: In the batting line of Kings XI Punjab Glenn Maxwell, George Bailey, David Miller, Virendersehwag is the strength if they all are play his own game then no one can stop them. In bowling lineMitchell Johnson charge his team.

Weakness of Kings XI Punjab: this is the first match so it’s too early to talk about weakness of team, but bowling line seems little bit weak only Mitchell Johnson seem wicket taker.

On the other side Rajasthan Royals will be looking forward with many World Cup 2015 winning team stars like, Shane Watson, James Faulkner, Steve Smith- to do the bulk of damages. This team has the ability, strength and strategy to chess the title of IPL 8. Unfortunately last season was unlucky for Rajasthan Royals and this team not qualifies playoff too. But this is new season, new strategy and fresh mood of all players. So, all the players should forget what happen in last season and focus on this Pepsi IPL t20 season eight. And take a Royal Start against Kings XI Punjab.

In the batting side of Rajasthan Royals AjinkyaRahane, Karun Nair take a charge with caption Shane Watson, James Faulkner and Steve Smith experience. Rajasthan Royals have many all-rounders who play well in both the area of cricket either batting or bowling.  Tim Southee gives the strength in bowling area to his team. So as all this discussion Rajasthan Royals seem full balanced, controlled, strong team.

Strength: In bating line caption Shane Watson, James Faulkner and Steve Smith will played an important role for his team. They all are in form players and runs well in world cup 2015, so Rajasthan Royals have more expectation with this squad.

Weakness: it’s the first game of this season of Rajasthan Royals so it’s too hard to say what the week points of this team are. But after all this discussion in bowling line no one seems world class permanent bowler.

Who will win? This is the mystery of IPL t20 cricket tournament. No one predict which team will win the game. It is depending on the performance who play well defiantly wins the game. Thumbs up for cricket, we expect that we will see a very interesting match between bat and ball.
