IPL 2020 – KXIP vs RCB: Match preview, Fantasy XI team and Prediction

Day 6 of the IPL will finally feature two teams who have already played their first match as Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Kings XI Punjab.

Interestingly both sides had their ups and downs. RCB is coming off an win over Sunrisers Hyderabad. On the other hand, KXIP is coming off a loss against Delhi Capitals. The match went into the super over.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

RCB started their campaign with a win over SRH. They put up a decent score of 163 batting first. Youngster Devdatt Padikkal scored an impressive 56 with Aaron Finch’s 29 to set the platform. The innings was given a finishing touch as AB de Villiers scored a quickfire 51 of just 30 balls.

The game was slipping away from their hands as Johnny Bairstow was cruising towards the total. However, Dale Steyn and Navdeep Saini had to hold the innings as Yuzvendra Chahal took wickets from the other end.

Kings XI Punjab

KXIP were easily cruising towards an easy win as they needed only 1 run from 3 balls. However, Marcus Stoinis had other plans as he restricted KXIP to a tie. The super over had even more bad news for KXIP as they were restricted to only runs which DC chased comfortably to win the game.

Therefore, KXIP will try to avoid some silly tactical errors they made in their first match. They will need their middle-order batsmen like Karun Nair and Glenn Maxwell to deliver.

Fantasy XI team!

VIRAT KOHLI (10.5) (C) – You cannot keep Kohli quiet for long.  It’ll be safe to assign him as a captain keeping his consistency in mind.

AARON FINCH (9.0) – Finch has been in sublime touch as well. Also, he is expected to stay long as Padikkal attacks from the other end.

YUZVENDRA CHAHAL (9) (VC) – Chahal has developed into a phenomenal and intelligent limited over spinner. He picked up three valuable wickets in his last match. He’ll be the vice-captain.

JOSH PHILLIPE (8) – Phillipe is entering the IPL with a lot of hype. It will be interesting to him in the RCB middle-order.

NAVDEEP SAINI (8.5) – Saini has been a positive for RCB in both powerplay and death overs. He restricted the flow of runs when Umesh Yadav was getting punished.

KL RAHUL (10.5) – KL Rahul can definitely put a huge performance anytime.

NICHOLAS POORAN (9) – Though he couldn’t deliver last time around, he’s a force to be reckoned with.

GLENN MAXWELL (9.0) – Maxwell has been in great form throughout the international circuit, a big innings is definitely around the corner.

MOHD. SHAMI (8.5) – Shami looked phenomenal with his spell where he picked up 3 wickets.

RAVI BISNOI (8) – Bishnoi impressed everyone with his dynamic leg spin.

MAYANK AGARWAL (9) – Aggarwal looked in great form. He will play an anchor like innings as Rahul smashes from the other end.

Prediction

RCB have picked up a lot of confidence and momentum after their first win. T20 is a game of striking the balanced combination and RCB did that last time around. KXIP have struggled to address some issues like their middle-order batting and some pace bowling.

Therefore, RCB will defeat KXIP!
