By on April 8, 2012

The IPL 2012 8th match is going to played between Pune Warriors India and Kings XI Punjab at Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium, Pune. PWI and KXIP, both are facing their second match. The winning position in the previous match of PWI has brought some extra confidence in them. While their competitors KXIP are desperate in opening their pointing account with this win.

The Sourav Ganguly lead Pune Warriors India is the favorite in this match. With a stunning win of PWI over Mumbai Indians in their previous match, they are eyeing to have a big win over Kings XI Punjab. Added advantage to PWI is that this match is been played in their home ground. However, the performance of the top order of batting was very bad. The opening batsmen Manish Pandey seemed nervous while facing the Mumbai Indians pacer Lasith Malinga, and the skipper Ganguly in a hurry to make big score, lost his wicket very soon by just making 3 runs. Apart from Steve Smith and Robin Uthappa, none of the batsmen were able to stand for long and make big scores. The bowling magic of Ashok Dinda, and batting score of Steve Smith and Robin Uthappa helped PWI to have an easy win.

When coming to Adam Gilchrist lead Kings XI Punjab showed very performance of bowling in their previous match, which was with Rajasthan Royals. None of the players could stop giving runs to Ajinkya Rahane, who made a huge score of 98 in 66 balls. KXIP has a strong batting order which include, Paul Valthaty, Shaun Marsh, Abhishek Nayar and David Hussey. They all possess the capability of show their brutality over any kind of balling attacks. On the bowling side, we have the Praveen Kumar, James Faulkner and Piyush Chawla, who all can take some easy wickets. In spite of good batting and bowling order, they lost their previous match.
