Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: IPL 2020 - Kings XI Punjab vs Royal Challengers Bangalore - Match 6
The 6th match of the Indian Premier League 2020 will be played between Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai in the UAE.
Kings XI Punjab began their IPL 2020 campaign on a strange note. They started the match with a fiery spell from Mohammed Shami who finished with figures of 4-0-15-3. Sheldon Cottrell also bowled well, picking up two wickets from his four overs and conceding 24 runs.
But, they let the match slip in the second half of their bowling innings. The team then lost quick wickets and was reeling at 55/5 when Mayank Agarwal played a brilliant rearguard knock.
However, when they had the win for the taking, Agarwal threw away his wicket and the team could not make one run off the last three deliveries.
The match went into the super over and Punjab lost the game. KXIP will come back with full force after their botched up encounter against Delhi.
Royal Challengers Bangalore, on the other hand, finished on the right side of the line against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Devdutt Padikkal and AB de Villiers scored explosive half-centuries for the team while Navdeep Saini and Yuzvendra Chahal upped their game when their team needed them to.
However, there are many issues with the Bangalore line-up such as their bowling weak links Shivam Dube and Umesh Yadav, which Punjab will aim to exploit.
