Kings XI Punjab vs Royal Challengers B’lor: Match Preview

Posted by

IPL’s match number 28 will see Kings XI Punjab play Royal Challengers Bangalore in Mohali on Saturday evening.

Kings XI Punjab is coming back of a last-ball defeat against Mumbai Indians. A game that was taken away from them by Mumbai’s hard hitter Kieron Pollard.

Royal Challenger Bangalore is still searching for their first win of the season. They are the only team that is yet to win a game and finds themselves at the bottom of the IPL points table.


Kings XI Punjab – WWLWL

Kings XI Punjab has started the season well. They have been performing well. In the last game though they were outdone by Mumbai Indian’s West Indian Kieron Pollard. But Punjab is one of the in-form teams this season.

Royal Challengers Bangalore – LLLLL

Virat Kohli’s men are yet to win a game this season. They are virtually out of the race for the semi-finals as well. Royal Challengers Bangalore has tried various combinations but have been unsuccessful in all their attempts. It’s really hard to see where that win will come for them.

Key Player

Chris Gayle (KXIP)

Gayle is expected to play the game against Royal Challengers Bangalore. The destructive West Indian will be raring to go against his former team. He can hit any bowler out of the park and will be looking to do the same to the Bangalore bowlers.

Yuzvendra Chahal (RCB)

What Bangalore is really missing this season is a good dependable bowler they can turn to when going gets tough. Chahal will be required today at Mohali. His leg spin will be key against KL Rahul and Chris Gayle.

Keeper – KL Rahul

Batsmen – Kohli, De Villiers, Gayle, Sarfaraz,

All Rounders – Stoinis, Curran, Ali
