Royal Challengers Bangalore host Kings XI Punjab at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have won five matches in seven games, and are placed third on the points table. The team comes into this one after magnificent 82 run win over KKR.
With the addition of Chris Morris, the team have begun to do well with the ball. AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli have been fantastic with the bat, and Devdutt Padikal’s form is just a cherry on the top.
On the other hand, KXIP are placed at the bottom of the points table. They have won just one match in seven. KXIP’s only win this season was against RCB.
From here on Punjab would need to win each and every game, if they really want a shot to finish among the top four.
Even though KXIP have poorly performed, their captain KL Rahul and batsman Mayank Agarwal are placed one and two respectively, for getting the most number of runs so far.
As Kohli and company lost to Punjab in their first game, it will be interesting to see if they equate the damage at Sharjah.
