RPS, who won their last against DD, will have to make sure they win this one to stay in contention while RCB will surely look forward to get to positive note with a win at home. MS Dhoni’s RPS has been in a difficult situation losing their star performers Faf du Plessis, Steven Smith and Kevin Pietersen. Replacements Usman Khawaja and George Bailey are available for the match which again restores the balance in the team.

RCB have had a very good form with the bat with world-class players in the side. Though Chris Gayle has not performed up to the expectations so far, he is one big name who can fire any time. Skipper Kohli, de Villiers look in tremendous form and Shane Watson is another name upon whom the team will depend a lot. The team has brought in Chris Jordan as their front-line bowler hoping for a change in scenario in the bowling line-up so far. With so many changes, the match is expected to be an interesting one.
