PLAYER UPDATES: Royal Challengers for the first two games didn’t field their best batsmen, Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers. The former might take a few more days to return to complete fitness, while the latter who almost made it to the playing eleven last game will indisputably start against Kings XI.
TEAM COMBINATION: The Kings XI looked an impressive bunch in their first outing. Hashim Amla was picked ahead of Eoin Morgan and that could be the only swap happening for the second game. The team’s best batsmen have to face the most deliveries in any format, this theory works well in all formats and the same must be applied by the Kings XI. Maxwell isn’t new to opening the innings and with the kind of form he’s hit, a promotion to the top wouldn’t be a bad choice.
Royal Challengers will have a stern decision to make if De Villiers is 100% match ready. Billy Stanlake might face the axe. If that happens, an Indian seamer, either Sreenath Aravind/ Harshal Patel will complete the playing eleven. Ousting Chris Gayle is the other possible change that can occur. Can RCB drop their greatest ever game changer? While the odds of that happening seem lean, the option is certainly on the table. RCB fielded 2 left-arm spinners and a leg spinner in their previous encounter; with the heavy hitting left-handers David Miller and Eoin Morgan up against them, will the same combination be tested?
Players to Watch out For Today Match between Kings Punjab & Royal Challengers
YUZVENDRA CHAHAL: Wrist spinners currently are hot property in the league and to score against them has become a tall order. Chahal has been phenomenal in the first two games for Royal Challengers. 8-0-41-2 have been his figures in this year’s IPL. A 1.68m frame might not appear intimidating, but the guile and courage Chahal displays is commendable. Consistency has always been his strong point and in a crucial game against the Kings XI he’ll be the player to keep an eye on.
MARCUS STOINIS: Power hitting, agility, pace. There are a bunch of all-rounders who are well qualified if these three traits are tested. The one which separates Stoinis from the rest is match awareness. Stoinis’s 146* against New Zealand at Eden Park was one of the best knocks seen in recent times and with him in the squad the Kings XI can never be counted out of the game.
KXIP vs RCB Match Winner Prediction:
The Royal Challengers rely heavily on their batting, but it’s the bowling that still raises a few eyebrows. They did manage a win against Delhi Daredevils but that game could have gone either ways. Kings XI have a more stable squad and with some of the finest finishers in the game in their middle order, they’re most likely to add a positive 2 to their points tally.
Kings Punjab vs Royal Challenger Bangalore Expected Playing XI
RCB: Chris Gayle, Mandeep Singh, Shane Watson, AB De Villiers(c), Kedar Jadhav, Vishnu Vinod (wk), Stuart Binny, Pawan Negi, Yuzvendra Chahal, Tymal Mills, Iqbal Abdullah/Sreenath Aravind.
KXIP: Manan Vohra, Glenn Maxwell(c), Eoin Morgan, Wriddhiman Saha(wk), David Miller, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Swapnil Singh, Mohit Sharma, Sandeep Sharma, T. Natarajan
