The Virat Kohli-led RCB will look to continue their winning momentum against KL Rahul’s KXIP in IPL 2020. Watch live streaming of KXIP vs RCB.
Kings XI Punjab will be chasing their first win of the current Indian Premier League season when they take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai on Thursday.
Star batsman Mayank Agarwal led KXIP’s charge in a thrilling run-chase against the Delhi Capitals in their first game, taking it to the super over, where DC eventually won.
KXIP captain KL Rahul was appreciative of his team’s efforts but will be desperate to get points on board soon.
KXIP may bring in New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham to provide more batting depth while his medium-pace bowling could be a useful option on the slow Dubai pitch. Hard-hitting Jamaican legend Chris Gayle may have to await his chances for a few more games.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore, on the other hand, began their campaign with a fine win against 2016 IPL champions Sunrisers Hyderabad.
The victory was orchestrated by their bowlers, in particular, leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, who triggered a batting collapse by prising out the dangerous Jonny Bairstow.
Young India international Navdeep Saini also impressed with his death bowling skills which could be key going forward in the IPL season.
RCB captain Virat Kohli will want to continue that winning momentum against KXIP while he would also want to get some runs under his belt after a long time out of the game. Watch KXIP vs RCB on live streaming.
