KXIP vs RCB Dream11 Prediction

Indian Premier League, 2019 | Kings XI Punjab vs Royal Challengers Bangalore, 28th Match | KXIP vs RCB Who Will Win

The Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Mohali will host the 28th match of IPL 2019 which will be played between the hosts Kings XI Punjab and the bottom-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Kings XI Punjab

Kings XI Punjab are coming into this fixture after a loss against Mumbai Indians in their previous encounter by 3 wickets. It was Mumbai Indians stand-in skipper Kieron Pollard who spilt beans on KL Rahul’s emphatic ton to hand KXIP their third loss of the season.

With 4 wins from 7 games, the Kings XI Punjab are currently standing at the fourth position with a healthy net run-rate against their name. Despite the loss, Kings XI look a settled unit and will be eyeing one more win here in this game on an already depleted unit of Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Heading into this game, KXIP would be eyeing to keep their winning record at home intact as they are yet to lose a single game at the PCA stadium this season.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Royal Challengers Bangalore found themselves in a now or never situation at this juncture of the tournament. Having been winless in 6 straight games, RCB needs a desperate win here.

Not only a win here but from this stage, they have to win each and every match to give themselves some sort of chance to finish among the last four. They have looked completely out of sorts and unsettled, there are so many potholes in this setup which they are unable to find out.

A collective performance is what they need from their batsmen and bowlers which seems to be the only way to register their first points on the board.

The surface at the PCA Stadium, Mohali

With a hint of green patches on the surface, the deck looks good for batting and there will be ample carry for the pacers especially in the second innings. Dew is never a problem here.

KXIP vs RCB Dream11 Teams

Players to watch out RCB:

In the batting order, their dependency has always been on Ab de Villiers and skipper Virat Kohli. Wicket-keeper batsmen Parthiv Patel has been a prudent member for RCB this season as he is scoring runs with ease.

Moeen Ali and Marcus Stoinis still remain their reliable all-rounders. Bowling has been a worry for RCB thus far as he has been the highest wicket-taker for this side in the season so far.

Players to watch out KXIP:

Chris Gayle’s injury in the last game has given headaches to team management. Nicholas Pooran could replace him at the top, whereas, KL Rahul’s last three innings have seen him scoring two fifties and a century.

Sarfraz Khan is another option who has been doing good in the middle for KXIP. R Ashwin and Mohd Shami will be the two bowling picks here,
