Finally the Royal Challengers Bangalore is in a rampaging mood as we saw them in their last matches. Captain Kohli’s squad is getting the rhythm back and their morale will be on the seventh sky after beating Kolkata Knight Riders in their last match with a huge margin of 82 runs. After getting beaten up by Delhi Capitals at Dubai, RCB got their pace back again at same ground where they took revenge of losing the first game of season and defeat Chennai Super Kings. After this RCB vanished KKR at Sharjah. On the other side, in spite of some very great individual performances of their key players, Kings XI Punjab is struggling to prove themselves in aspects of Team Performance. They are standing last in the points table as they only managed to win just one game out of seven and that one is against RCB. Here in this article all the details regarding the RCB Vs KXIP Match Prediction is there.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
RCB is doing really well with all departments. There is no reason to change the team combination. Their top order got stronger as the skipper Virat Kohli is back in his form. Padikkal along with Finch is giving a good start to the team. Mr. 360 ABD has the reign of middle order and he is driving very well but he still need support from other middle order batsmen. The power-play specialist Washington Sunder is very economical with bowl but yet he has to prove himself with bat as well. Shivam Dubey can play some good shots if he get chance to play on fifth position. In bowling department, Navdeep Saini is proving himself with the lethal weapon. Chris Morris can be the game changer as he is doing really well along with Isuru Udana on the other end. Chahal was not getting wickets as in earlier games but he along with Sunder are quite enough to slow down the run rate of opposition in middle overs. In total the team combination is very balanced, the just have to be consistent with their role.
Kings XI Punjab
In spite of having KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal, the top run scorers till date in this season, KXIP have to work hard on their consistency. They have Nicholas Puran and Glenn Maxwell in the middle order, they have Mohammad Shami and Ravi Bishnoi who are bowling well enough to get a win but still they are struggling to be in the race. Well, after getting four days rest, KXIP has very much time to think upon what they are missing. Just hope the squad will definitely come up with a fresh mind set and they would love to repeat previous performance against RCB to get back in the game. The newbie Arshdeep Singh has proven himself and put an impressive impact in bowling line up. However the explosive Chris Gayle is still on the bench. May be we can see him in this match.
