Watch the KXIP vs RCB match live on YuppTV
Giving us our daily dose of entertainment, Dream 11 IPL 2020 has really become a pill of joy. To make the joy double, we have one of the best rivalries on the menu. Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore are ready to set the field ablaze today, in the Dubai International Cricket Stadium at 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT) and watch it live on YuppTV.
RCB has started the season with a bang by winning against SRH and is now 3rd on the points table. KXIP, however has lost the first match against DC and is now 6th on the table. This match will show if they are prepared to redeem themselves or if RCB is still as blazing as it was in the beginning.
A look at the head-to-head stats shows that both these teams have a neck-to-neck record of 12 wins each, out of their 24 battles. What a nail-biter it is going to be! A catch here though, is that RCB have won all 4 of the last matches against KXIP in the last season and shown their mettle in this season’s first match against SRH. So, to guess that RCB have an upper hand is pragmatic.
An amazing batting show by Devdutt Padikkal, was witnessed by everyone in the first match. The terrific duo of Virat and AB de Villiers will surely put on a stellar performance. Add to them the prowess of Aaron Finch, the game is going to be fire. Although their bowling unit is a weak link, Yuzvendra Chahal and Navdeep Saini are good at what they do. Unavailability of Chris Morris, who undoubtedly brings balance to bowling unit as well as adds weight to the batting order, is a big deal.
Kings XI Punjab, on the other hand have their able captain KL Rahul. His field placement strategies and bowling changes show his smartness. With players like Ravi Bishnoi and Mohammed Shami gave a good fight against the top order of DC. Mayank Agarwal can also play well but the uncertainty of Gayle’s presence might be a setback. Glenn Maxwell may show his best game today.
To predict who will win is going to be difficult when it is a match between two teams like this. Both the teams have equal strengths and weaknesses, the one who overcomes that will win.
