New Delhi: The Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) team, who lost their first match in the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) in a Super Over against Delhi Capitals (DC), will face Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in their second match on Thursday. The match between the two teams will be played at the Dubai International Stadium.
Against Delhi, Punjab chased a target of 158 runs on Mayank Agarwal's 60-ball 89, thanks to his innings. All the remaining batsmen failed to score big. On the other hand, RCB, captained by Virat Kohli, will be confident in defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the first suit. The strength of RCB is its batting. Devdutt Padikkal and Aaron Finch can be seen starting the innings against KXIP once again.
In the middle order, Captain Kohli, AB de Villiers, Parthiv Patel, Shivam Dubey, Moeen Ali Morcha will take over. RCB's fast bowling was not in the rhythm in the last match. Dale Steyn had taken the wicket, but this 37-year-old player was not even close to his best performance. Umesh Yadav disappointed by giving 48 runs and could not take any wicket.
It may be possible playing XI: -
RCB Team: Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli (Captain), AB de Villiers, Parthiv Patel, Shivam Dubey, Moeen Ali, Yuzvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini, Umesh Yadav and Dale Steyn.
