Kings XI Punjab

KXIP’s skipper Ravichandran Ashwin likes to choose his players based on pitch conditions. In the last game against the Kolkata Knight Riders, he brought back Mayank Agarwal, Aaron Finch and Barinder Sran in place of Manoj Tiwary, Marcus Stoinis and Akashdeep Nath. Since this match is to be played at the same venue, the team may not want to make a change in their line-up. Mujeeb Ur Rahman suffered a blow to his right hand while bowling to Sunil Narine. The Afghan spinner was taken off the field for some time but nothing serious has been reported.

Key Players

Openers Lokesh Rahul and Chris Gayle will be the key for KXIP when it comes to batting. Rahul’s last three innings scores read 84*, 95* and 66 and he is currently second on the season’s runs charts. Gayle has scored an aggregate of 30 runs in his last three games and the team will hope that he gets going this time. Middle order will depend mainly on Aaron Finch who can be very difficult to stop once he gets into the groove. Andrew Tye will be the biggest threat for RCB with the ball. The Australian pace bowler currently holds the purple cap and is coming off two consecutive four-wicket hauls. Mujeeb Ur Rahman (14 wickets in 11 matches) has been KXIP’s next best bowler this IPL. The off-spinner claimed the prized scalp of Virat Kohli in the reverse fixture and he will once again have his eyes set on him.

Recent Form

Kings XI Punjab, after their 31-run loss to the Kolkata Knight Riders in their last game, find themselves in a tricky situation as they now have to win two of their remaining three fixtures to ensure a spot in the playoffs. They are currently third on the IPL 2018 league standings with six wins and five defeats from eleven matches. KXIP are coming into this match having lost four of their last five encounters.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Royal Challengers Bangalore replaced Manan Vohra in the middle order by Sarfaraz Khan in the last match against the Delhi Daredevils. Though he could only contribute 11 runs to the team’s total, Virat Kohli will probably give him another chance to showcase his skills. RCB are coming on the back of a win and so they might be tempted to retain the entire bunch of eleven from the last game.

Key Players

RCB’s batting depends heavily on the star pair of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. The former is among the IPL 2018 top five batsmen with 466 runs which includes four half-centuries while the latter has three big scores in his last five innings. de Villiers had hit a fifty in the reverse fixture and the team will want him to deliver once again. Mandeep Singh has not been able to convert his starts into something substantial and he will be expected to score big this time around. Umesh Yadav has been in sensational form with the ball for RCB this season and is the team’s leading wicket-taker with 14 wickets. The fast bowler has provided his side with the early breakthroughs and the skipper will hope that he is able to break the opening stand between Gayle and Rahul at the start of KXIP’s innings. Yuzvendra Chahal and Tim Southee are two other key members in this bowling attack.

Recent Form

Royal Challengers Bangalore chased down the Delhi Daredevils’ total of 181 in the last match to secure a five-wicket victory and have kept themselves afloat in the tournament. They are placed seventh on the points table having won four and lost seven out of eleven league matches. Prior to their win against the Daredevils, they beat Mumbai Indians before going down to Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Kings XI Punjab vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Prediction

While Royal Challengers Bangalore will gain some confidence from their win in the last game, Kings XI Punjab will be disappointed after having lost their last two matches. Though the latter will be playing at their home ground, they won’t be having any psychological advantage as they have lost three of their last four matches played here. Also, a lot of unnecessary tinkering is going on in KXIP’s middle order and skipper Ravichandran Ashwin is being criticised for the same reason. Apart from that, their team selection has been questionable in the past few games. While it is true that there is going to be a lot more pressure on RCB, we feel that they have a good chance of beating the KXIP who are still searching for their right combination.
