Kings XI Punjab vs Royal Challengers Bangalore:
A winless Royal Challengers Bangalore is all set to take on the Kings XI Punjab in hopes of turning things around for them in their campaign. There performance has been dismal to the say the least, and a win would do wonders for their team’s confidence at least. Talking about Punjab, they are placed at the middle of the table presently, they surely have managed to win a few matches to stay relevant in the tournament and Ashwin’s dynamic captaincy surely has helped them as a unit. They have been very positive in terms of their approach and lost a last ball thriller against Mumbai despite Rahul’s magnificent ton.
