The live cricket streaming of the match will be available on Hotstar. The live telecast will be available on Sony Six and Sony Six HD in English, along with Hindi commentary on SET MAX, while SONY ESPN and SONY ESPN HD would be telecasting it in Tamil, Telugu and Bengali commentary as well. So far, both the teams have played 18 matches against each other. Surprisingly, KXIP holds the upper hand by winning 10 out of them and RCB winning the rest 8. The ground of Indore is adopted home venue for KXIP.

RCB banks heavily on a strong batting line-up but showed immense promise through bowling in the previous clash against DD. On the other hand, KXIP also have a good batting line-up but not an impressive bowling line-up and still did well against RPS. Moreover, no confirmation is there on RCB captain Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, whether they are going to play or not. Overall, both the sides look evenly balanced and one can expect another thriller in the tournament.
