Bangalore: May 2, 2012

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will eye complete domination against a feeble Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) side in their IPL 2012 match at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Wednesday.

Dropped to the fifth position from third in the points table, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) would look to return to winning ways against an improving Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at Bangalore on Wednesday to brighten up their play-off chances in the fifth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The loss against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 47 runs in their last game notwithstanding, RCB would look to draw inspiration from the five-wicket win against Kings XI Punjab in the last encounter between the two sides at Mohali.

But RCB will have to fight tooth and nail against Kings XI to conjure up a win at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

It has been a mixed outing for RCB so far in the tournament, winning four games and losing as many from nine outings with one match against Chennai Super Kings being washed out.

RCB’s foreign recruits — Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers and to some extent Tillakartane Dilshan — have played stellar roles in the victories, but the form of its domestic players has been a major worry for the Bangalore outfit.

Teams:

RCB: Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers (wk), Saurabh Tiwary, Andrew McDonald, Daniel Vettori (c), R Vinay Kumar, Asad Pathan, Zaheer Khan, KP Appanna.

KXIP: Nitin Saini (wk), Mandeep Singh, Shaun Marsh, David Hussey (c), Azhar Mahmood, Paras Dogra, Abhishek Nayar, Ryan Harris, Piyush Chawla, Praveen Kumar, Parvinder Awana.
