Virat Kohli will look to even the score while Chris Gayle eyes a return when Royal Challengers Bangalore face Kings XI Punjab for the second time in IPL 2020. Watch RCB vs KXIP live.
Royal Challengers Bangalore will lock horns with Kings XI Punjab for the second time in the Indian Premier League this season on Thursday at Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
KXIP, on the back of a blistering century by captain KL Rahul, thumped RCB by 97 runs last time but have suffered a massive dip in form since, having lost five matches on the trot.
RCB come into this contest on the back of two big wins and will have an upper hand in this match. Indian cricket fans can watch RCB vs KXIP on live streaming and on TV.
All eyes will be on the RCB captain Virat Kohli who has hit sublime form lately, amassing 238 runs in the last four matches.
While RCB opener Devdutt Padikkal has provided the team with strong starts, the presence of IPL veteran AB de Villiers has bolstered the middle-order.
Kings XI Punjab, meanwhile, will be looking to their leading run-getters and openers KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal to help snap their losing streak. Chris Gayle could be playing his first IPL 2020 match too. He was down with food poisoning and in the hospital.
Chris Gayle's health is reportedly fine now as he has recovered from the stomach bug.
On the bowling front, although pacer Mohammed Shami is among the top wicket-takers in IPL 2020, the lack of support from others has cost the team dearly.
