Cricket Match Preview:

It was against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) that Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) won their first cricket game of the season. It had come after a long wait for them and since then, they have registered two more victories and are in far better mental space than they were when they met their opponent in Mohali. KXIP, on the other hand, are still alive and need three more wins to seal the playoff spot.

RCB, after being on the wrong side of close matches earlier in the tournament, finally managed to defeat KKR and CSK in very close games. While against KKR, they were at their very best with the bat with captain Virat Kohli scoring his fifth IPL hundred, their bowling once again came under scanner as Nitish Rana and Andre Russell nearly pulled off a miraculous win for KKR.

Against CSK, RCB arguably had their best game with the ball. After being restricted for 160 runs with the bat, they kept CSK under pressure with regular wickets. By the time the final over began, CSK needed 26 runs to win the game with MS Dhoni still at the crease. The finisher did his job to near perfection as he hammered Umesh Yadav for 24 off five deliveries. On the final delivery, RCB wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel showed the presence of mind and ran out Shardul Thakur while trying to sneak a run. In the end, RCB emerged victorious by one run.

Kings XI Punjab have had a stop-start kind of campaign so far in the tournament. Almost every win of theirs has been followed by a loss. As a result, they are still looking to find that momentum that could take them to the playoff. Their openers KL Rahul and Chris Gayle have been very good as has been their bowling but their middle order hasn’t come to the party yet.

This campaign can be termed as a replica of their performance last year when they were in quite a similar situation. They failed to reach the playoff then and it remains to be seen if the inexperienced middle order can hold their own under pressure in next four cricket games.

Cricket Match Information:

Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Kings XI Punjab for the second time in this year’s IPL. While RCB are still at last position on the points table, they have started to win the games of cricket. KXIP, on the other hand, are at number five position. By the time of this piece being written, RCB had won three games of cricket out of 10 games; KXIP have won five cricket games out of 10.

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

RCB are being led by Virat Kohli once again. They had got a horrendous start to their season once again but are finally managing to gain some momentum. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game against CSK.

Here is our prediction of RCB’s playing XI:

  • Virat Kohli
  • Parthiv Patel
  • AB de Villiers
  • Marcus Stoinis
  • Moeen Ali
  • Yuzvendra Chahal
  • Pawan Negi
  • Umesh Yadav
  • NA Saini
  • Dale Steyn
  • Akshdeep Nath

Kings Eleven Punjab:

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

KXIP are being led by Ravichandran Ashwin for the second year in a row. KXIP have not sighed away from making the changes to their playing eleven as per the conditions. Hence, our prediction is of at least one change to their lineup for this cricket game.

Here is our prediction of KX1P’s playing XI:

  • KL Rahul
  • Chris Gayle
  • Andrew Tye
  • Ravichandran Ashwin
  • Mohammad Sami
  • Mayank Agarwal
  • GC Viljoen
  • Ankit Rajpoot
  • H Brar
  • Mandeep Singh

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Virat Kohli scored a 100 against KKR a couple of matches ago. He is in good touch and will be looking to win a few more games with his bat. Our prediction is of another good knock from him.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

Chinnaswamy Stadium has been at its best this season. The scores around 180 are being chased easily. Our prediction is of a score of around 180 for this cricket game. Conditions are expected to be hot and dry.

Our Prediction:

RCB will begin this game of cricket as favourites. They have won two cricket games against tough opponents like KKR and CSK. Hence, our prediction is of RCB’s victory.
