From Maxwell's 'big show' to Punjab raining sixes over Delhi: Brett Lee predictions for Indian T20 League week 4
The Indian T20 League 2021 has already produced some enthralling encounters in the first three weeks of the season. From quality batsmanship to outstanding bowling, the biggest T20 extravaganza has witnessed it all.
So as we approach another week of the high-profile T20 league, SportsAdda ambassador Brett Lee gives us his predictions in episode 4 of SportsAdda presents T20 Crazy, powered by Sportsbet.io.
Bangalore to win against Punjab
“I’m going to go with Bangalore. I think that Punjab are still a little bit behind the eight ball, they still haven’t found their best combination yet. I do believe that they have to inject back in those Australian fast bowlers at some stage.They have picked their team around the fast bowlers and they did give them a couple of games. They are quality bowlers, I think get them back in the team,” Lee said.
Bangalore have won 14 of the 26 matches played against Punjab, and Binga predicts Virat Kohli’s side will add two more points to their tally on Friday.
Quinton de Kock to be top scorer for Mumbai
“I think it will be Quinton de Kock. He’s been in good form this week already. He was wanting some runs, he was trying to spend some time at the crease. He got both this week,” Lee predicted.
After struggling for runs in the first five matches, Quinton de Kock played a match-winning knock of unbeaten 70 runs to guide his side to victory against Rajasthan.
Hyderabad will be the better bowling team against Rajasthan
“Well, they both have got a strong bowling attack. Hyderabad have a very good bowling attack. So, I’m gonna go with the Orange Army. Hopefully, they can step up this week,” Lee said.
Interestingly, both Rajasthan and Hyderabad are languishing at the bottom of the Indian T20 League points table in the seventh and eighth spot, respectively.
Punjab to hit most sixes against Delhi
“Well, the easy option is to go with Delhi, however, I’m gonna go Punjab. With few more matches underneath their belt, with some more experience, maybe, a rejig with the team, I’m gonna go with Punjab,” Lee predicted.
Both Punjab and Delhi possess some big-hitters on their respective team sheets. However, considering the impact of Chris Gayle and KL Rahul for Punjab, Binga’s prediction seems justified.
Glenn Maxwell to score 50 against Kolkata
“Well, the Indian T20 League is the Big Show, and the ‘Big Show’ is playing in the Indian T20 League, so yes,” Lee said on being asked if Maxwell will score a fifty against Kolkata.
Glenn Maxwell has scored 223 runs in five innings in the ongoing edition of the T20 League. He has already hit two fifties in the competition.
