IPL 2015: Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kings XI Punjab at Bangalore, pick of the tweets

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will take on Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the 39th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at M Chinnaswamy stadium in Bangalore. Both the teams had identical results in their previous encounters.

RCB lost against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) when they failed to chase down a target of 149. They did extremely well with the ball to restrict the formidable CSK to a decent total but lost their way completely after the dismissal of Virat Kohli courtesy to some brilliant fielding from Dwayne Bravo. They have a well-oiled team and will look forward to add two more points by defeating KXIP at the home venue. With four victories from their nine outings including a wash-out, RCB are place at fifth position in the points table.

For KXIP, they were in an enviable position last season but somehow didn’t get the momentum going this season. They faced another defeat in their previous encounter, where they failed to chase down the target of 173 against Mumbai Indians (MI). They have struggled as a unit and have to win all their games from here in order to keep their hopes alive of making it to the play-offs in the tournament. They have to step as a unit and make some substantial contribution. KXIP with two wins from their nine outings are placed at the bottom of the table.

With the pitch being flat, expect a run-fest. As the match being played in Bangalore, RCB are certainly the favourites. We present you with the pick of the tweets.
