KXIP might be at the bottom of the table but will take on RCB with confidence after two wins. They have beaten the likes of Gujarat Lions (GL) and Delhi Daredevils (DD), while RCB are coming off a superb victory against Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS) in their previous outing, thanks to skipper Virat Kohli’s yet another astonishing T20 century. Kohli had left out his opening batsman Chris Gayle in the previous match, giving opportunity to budding players Travis Head.

On the hindsight, skipper Murali Vijay has done his part successfully providing two wins to KXIP donning the role of captaincy. Unfortunately, they have very few campaigns left to take them forward in this tournament. KXIP will want to provide emphasis on their batting skills against batting powers of RCB with likes of AB de Villiers, Shane Watson, KL Rahul and skipper Kohli.
