Kings XI Punjab takes on Royal Challengers Bangalore at Mohali

Kings XI vs RCB Live Streaming

This is the interesting factor of the IPL. Royal Challengers Bangalore looks the most power packed team on paper but this team finds itself level on the points table with Kings Eleven Punjab who lacks star studded team. Punjab is eager to clinch a win at home and move up in the points table.

Royal Challengers Bangalore have batsmen like Chris Gayle, Dilshan, AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli and Saurabh Tiwary who can demolish any bowling attack. But consistency is the key to their success which is missing in their camp. If we talk about the bowling department, Vettori and Muralitharan have done a great job. Vinay Kumar and Zaheer Khan are yet to click. Vettori would be wary of the part time bowlers because all his options viz. Gayle, Kohli or Dilshan haven't been economical so far.

There is a bad news for Kings XI Punjab as their skipper Adam Gilchrist is ruled out due to an injury. David Hussey could be the captain in his absence. Batting has been disappointing for Punjab so far. Gilchrist, Valthaty, Mandeep Singh, etc have all failed. The only batsmen who looks in good form is Shaun Marsh but he needs support from the other end. Finally the visa problem of Azhar Mahmood has been solved. So he can play all over India in this IPL and his inclusion can be a plus point for Punjab.

Bowling for Kings Eleven has been better in comparison to their batting. Mascarenhas, Harmeet Singh, Praveen Kumar and leg spinner Chawla have all been impressive in patches. Punjab has managed to win just two matches so far, one against Pune Warriors and the other against Kolkata Knight Riders. Although Royal Challengers Bangalore seem to be the favourites tonight but Kings Eleven Punjab are tough opponents to beat on their home turf in Mohali.
