Royal Challengers Bangalore face Kings XI Punjab in the next encounter at Bengaluru. This is a must win game for RCB to keep their hopes alive in order to remain contender to reach the top four. On the other hand, KXIP are well ahead with five wins. Kings XI Punjab’s openers Chris Gayle and KL Rahul return to their former home ground, therefore it’ll be interesting to see how they’ll perform. Both the teams have a packed batting line up, so it should be a high scoring game.
