KINGS XI PUNJAB
In the last match, they lost against Delhi that was a hurdle in their improving performance in IPL 2019. The match against RCB is another opportunity to make a place in the top 4 of the IPL 2019. There are some players in a team who loves to play at the ground of Chinnaswamy. Well, the batting condition of Bangalore is quite good, and the same with Kings XI Punjab. The eyes would be on the performances of Lokesh Rahul, Chris Gayle, David Miller, and even Sam Curren. Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers are the serious canons in RCB's batting line-up and the hosts will need both these batsmen to flame on Wednesday night. Kohli is the group's driving run-scorer in IPL 2019 and he as of late split a ton against the Kolkata Knight Riders. AB de Villiers has a couple of half-centuries in his past three innings, incorporating the unbeaten 59 in the switch experience against Kings XI Punjab at Mohali.
Parthiv Patel is falling off a 37-ball 53 against Chennai Super Kings. Moeen Ali has indicated great batting form and he can offer four quality overs of turn too. Dale Steyn and Yuzvendra Chahal, however, are the greater dangers in this bowling attack. Steyn has officially taken four wickets in the two matches he has played and he is RCB's key man with the new ball. Chahal is one of the competition's best bowlers with 14 wickets at an economy of 7.53 and he will hope to put weight on KXIP in the middle overs.
Probable XI: Parthiv Patel (wk), Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers, Moeen Ali, Akshdeep Nath, Marcus Stoinis, Umesh Yadav, Pawan Negi, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal, Dale Steyn,
Kings XI Punjab
Kings XI Punjab rolled out three changes to their side for the last match against Delhi Capitals - they brought Sam Curran, Hardus Viljoen and Harpreet Brar instead of Nicholas Pooran, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Arshdeep Singh individually. Mujeeb had supported suffering shoulder injury while handling in a week ago's experience against Rajasthan Royals and that kept him out of activity in the last match. KXIP will presumably bring him back in case he recoups in time for this match.
Chris Gayle has been ablaze this IPL season and he is the key man for Kings XI Punjab with regards to batting. The West Indian opener has scores of 63, 99* (versus RCB), 30 and 69 in the last four diversions and looks very much set for another enormous thump. His accomplice KL Rahul too has been in fine touch with a total of 399 runs which incorporates a century and four half-centuries. David Miller and Mayank Agarwal are incredible strikers of the ball and can include some speedy runs. Mohammed Shami and Ravichandran Ashwin have been the most reliable entertainers with the ball for KXIP and it will be primarily dependent upon these two to take wickets and hold RCB's scoring-rate within proper limits. While Shami has picked 13 wickets in the competition at an economy of 8.70, Ashwin has 11 at 7.53. Sam Curran is another to keep an eye out for. The English all-rounder can hit with the ball at critical minutes and can make sizeable commitments with the bat also.
Probable XI: Chris Gayle, Lokesh Rahul (wk), Mandeep Singh, Mayank Agarwal, David Miller, Hardus Viljoen/Nicholas Pooran, Harpreet Brar/Arshdeep Singh, Sam Curran, Ravichandran Ashwin (c), Mohammed Shami, Murugan Ashwin
