As if life was not already difficult for KXIP, their best batsman Shaun Marsh picked up an injury midway through the tournament, and now even Glenn Maxwell has been ruled out of the remainder of IPL 9 with an abdominal strain. Mitchell Johnson has been a shadow of his former self, and Miller has struggled for runs. With seemingly everything going against them, KXIP have had to search for new heroes. Vijay himself has been the backbone of the KXIP batting, while Wriddhiman Saha and Marcus Stoinis have done well in patches.

Given the current form of both teams and given that the match is being played in Bengaluru, it is likely that RCB will breeze past KXIP. The form that Kohli and de Villiers are in will give the KXIP bowlers a sleepless night. Even the under-fire Chris Gayle was among the runs against KKR, which only makes RCB look more intimidating. It will not be too surprising if the match sees another century from an RCB batsman and a resounding victory for the hosts.
