Cricket Tadka IPL Predictions: Week 5

As the IPL 2012 enters the week 5, the tournament is in its business end now. Deccan Chargers have dealt serious blow to the playoff hopes of the Pune Warriors. On the other hand, Kings XI Punjab have joined the race after a lackluster start to their tournament. They are now at the fourth position on the IPL points table after beating the strong teams like Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai and Bangalore. In fact, Punjab and Deccan caused the major damage to our IPL predictions last week.

Delhi and Kolkata have almost sealed their places in the top 4 and the week 5 will only confirm their qualification for the playoffs. Currently the competition between the teams is for the number three and four spot and six teams are in the reckoning with 8/9/10 points in their bags. So the coming week will be make or break for these six teams and even a slight mistake can cost them dearly. At least one team will confirm its position in the play offs this week.

Evaluation of Week 4 IPL predictions

Unpredictable is the other name of T20 not without a reason. Out of the 11 IPL predictions we made for week 4, 4 were right with 6 wrong. 1 match ended with no result.

IPL Predictions for Week 4
There are 9 matches scheduled in this week. I will continue to predict on daily basis i.e. I will update this space everyday with the predictions for the matches to be played on that day.

Match No. 45, 3rd  May, 8 pm: Pune Warriors vs Mumbai Indians, Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium, Pune

When they started the tournament with wins over big teams they shocked everyone and Pune continues to shock us with 5 defeats in its last six games including 3 consecutive losses. These also include 2 losses against the lowly placed Chargers. Mumbai has laso performed well in patches and doesn’t look to be dominating the tournament. This match will be perhaps the last match in which people can see Ganguly and Sachin together in the field. Mumbai seems to have the upper hand in this match.

Prediction: MI wins

Match No. 46, 4th  May, 8 pm: Chennai Super Kings vs Deccan Chargers, MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai

Chennai have hit a road block on their way to the playoffs. After two consecutive losses, Dhoni’s boys would be charged up to move ahead in the points table by beating Chargers in this game. Chargers might have defeated Pune in their last match, they will unlikely be able to continue their winning run.

Prediction: CSK wins

Match No. 47, 5th  May, 4 pm: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Pune Warriors, Eden Gardens, Kolkata

This match can undoubtedly be called as the most awaited match of IPL this season. Dubbed as Sourav’s revenge game, this match has already put the fans in a dilemma about which side to support. On one side there’s Bengal’s biggest cricket icon and on the other side, the team of Kolkata is there. The match is a special one for Sourav and I feel he with his warriors will put in some extra effort to win this game against a much stronger Knight Riders. Whatever the result may be, this match will be a memorable one.

Prediction: PWI wins

Match No. 48, 5th  May, 8 pm: Kings XI Punjab vs Rajasthan Royals, Punjab Cricket stadium, Chandigarh

Team Punjab are n a roll and have recently defeated some of the strongest teams of the IPL. However, they have performed very badly in their home games. Rajasthan, on the other hand, will be eager to end their losing streak by winning today’s match. Even though both teams look equally strong on paper, i feel Rajasthan will start as the favorite.

Prediction: RR wins

Match No. 49, 6th  May, 4 pm: Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings, Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai

Both the teams are heavy weights in the Indian Premier League and both have under-performed in this season. There’s a lot of similarity in the performance of these two teams. While their bowlers are executing the plans well, the batsmen are letting these two teams down. CSK has the upper hand in this match.

Prediction: CSK wins

Match No. 50, 6th  May, 8 pm: Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Deccan Chargers, M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore

Bangalore top order has failed to fire in this tournament so far. They are heavily dependent on Gayle at the top who is not consistent with his form this year. However, Deccan Chargers do not have enough ammunition to be able to restrict Bangalore.

Prediction: RCB wins

Match No. 51, 7th  May, 8 pm: Delhi Daredevils vs Kolkata Knight Riders, Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi

Delhi are placed at the top while Kolkata are second on the points table making this battle more interesting. While Delhi has depended mostly on Sehwag and Morne Morkel, Kolkata is heavily dependent on Gambhir and Sunil Narine for wins. Warner has joined the Daredevils camp and it will boost the batting line up in the absence of Kevin Pietersen. Delhi looks much ahead of Kolkata in the race. But it will interesting to see how Sehwag treats Narine.

Prediction: DD wins

Match No. 52, 8th  May, 4 pm: Pune Warriors vs Rajasthan Royals, Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium, Pune

It’s Dada vs Wall today in the IPL. While it’s a do or die match for the Warriors’ in order to keep their theoretical chances for the playoffs alive, Rajasthan is also facing similar situation. Losing matches in last overs from winning positions has hurt the Pune team much. Still, I will bet my money on Pune today giving them the home advantage against Rajasthan whose recent performances have been dismal.

Prediction: PWI wins

Match No. 53, 8th  May, 8 pm: Deccan Chargers vs Kings XI Punjab, Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad

The IPL has finally reached the real home of the Deccan Chargers: Hyderabad. Chargers have a disappointing record at this ground and that is the reason they play many of their matches at adopted homes like Vishakhapatnam and Cuttack. Even though Team Punjab is highly placed in comparison with Deccan, I feel Hyderabad has a definite edge over Punjab considering the recent performances of both the teams.

Prediction: DC wins

Match No. 54, 9th  May, 8 pm: Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore, Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai

RCB will be in a greater pressure as every point from here on is very important for their chances for the play offs. Mumbai, on the other hand, will be keen to seal their place in top 4 as soon as possible. If recent performances are analysed, almost all batsmen in the RCB are in form and that is a major advantage on their side. I am inclined towards RCB for today’s match.

Prediction: RCB wins
