Match Analysis

"As their middle order woes continue to bother them, the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) will be in desperate need of a victory to make things easier for them as the race for the playoffs gets tougher. They have squandered a good start to their tournament by dropping points in crucial matches and their bowlers took an absolute thrashing in their last game.

With three games to go for each side there is no doubt about the fact that KXIP have more of a realistic chance of making it to the playoffs. A victory only gives the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) hope but they would also need other results going in their favor.

Of late, Virat Kohli’s team have looked better than they did in the first half of the tournament and with their bowlers in good form, they will know that that they stand a good chance should they get the KXIP openers out early. Apart from KL Rahul none of their batsmen have been on song of late including the mighty Chris Gayle. The fact that they got to 219 in their last game, chasing 245, was largely due to contributions from Ravichandran Ashwin and the lower order."

Match Prediction

Well this is a must win match for both teams. RCB have the momentum and Kings XI will have to get passed Kohli and AB, so RCB to win today!
