Royal Challengers Bangalore has won four of their last five games that they have played against Kings XI Punjab
In the 6th match of Indian Premier League 2020 Kings XI Punjab will lock their horns against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Kings XI Punjab would consider themselves unlucky after having lost to Delhi Capitals in their first match due to umpiring error and their inability to hold on the nerves in a close game that was decided in super over. On the other hand Royal Challengers Bangalore enter into this game with a superb over Sunrisers Hyderabad which will surely lift their confidence.
Kings XI Punjab have not won against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the last two seasons which will add mental pressure to their side. RCB would be happy about their bowler’s performance which is considered to be their weak point.
Leading Punjab for the first time, KL Rahul and his company messed up in the final over of the game which resulted in a tie and ended up suffering a defeat which could have been a easy win. However umpiring error also led to their defeat but KL Rahul will look forward for a better show from his side against Bangalore.
It was Punjab’s batting that collapsed badly in their opening game. Universal boss Chris Gayle did not feature in last game but the team should include him to pair up with skipper KL Rahul for the opening. Mayank Agarwal was brilliant and was lone warrior for his team in batting department. Karun Nair, Glenn Maxwell, Nicolas Pooran were poor with the bat and the trio must play with responsibility in order to ensure team’s win.
Mohammad Shami and Sheldon Cottrell did well in last game and their team will want them to replicate their performance against side like Bangalore which is packed with renowned hitters. Krishnappa Gowtham looked ordinary and Ravi Bishnoi will have to do well in middle overs of the game. Maxwell will have to play with more responsibility in batting and bowling department.
On the other hand Virat Kohli would be very impressed, the way his team bounced back against Sunrisers Hyderabad. They managed to beat Hyderabad by 10 runs and the credit goes to their bowlers who bowled brilliantly in middle overs of the game. Kohli will want his side to carry the same momentum in upcoming games as well.
New opening pair of RCB i.e Devdutt Padikkal and Aaron Finch provided good start. Padikkal scored half century in the very first game of IPL. Virat Kohli couldn’t perform with the bat but Mr 360° – AB de Villiers scored half century in his first match of the season.
In the bowling department, Yuzvendra Chahal was star performer who picked up three crucial wickets without letting batsmen to free their arms against his leg spin. Navdeep Saini and Shivam Dube also bowled well and the duo picked up 2 wickets each. Umesh Yadav leaked lots of runs during his spell and should bowl with better lengths. Washington Sundar, Dale Steyn will have to bowl better deliveries in middle overs of the game.

Pitch tends to remain on a slower side and anything over 160 is hard to chase on this ground.
