VIVO IPL 2018: Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kings XI Punjab T20 preview

Match details:

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kings XI Punjab
April 13, 2018 – 8pm

Match preview:

Royal Challengers Bangalore is all set to register their first win as they face Kings XI Punjab on Chinnaswamy stadium. Virat Kohli-led RCB lost their opening match of IPL 2018 to KKR. Kings XI Punjab won convincingly as KL Rahul scored the fastest half century in IPL’s history.

RCB is star-studded as ever as they have the likes of Virat Kohli, AB Devilliers, Quinton De Kock and others. KXIP will be looking to win the second game running. Mujeeb Ur Rahman can pick a couple of crucial wickets in the first 6 overs in IPL 2018.

Aaron Finch is most likely to start this game which makes this KXIP team even better. A high-scoring game is on the cards and we all hope that this IPL 2018 match goes down to the wire.

Head-to-Head record:

RCB has played against KXIP 20 times. RCB is lagging far behind with 8 wins whereas KXIP won the remaining 12.

Prediction: 
This is an extremely important game for Royal Challengers Bangalore as all eyes will be on them to secure their first points of the season. Even though every team has strengthened this IPL season but it would be safe to say that this is RCB’s title to lose. We are going with a RCB win in this one.
