Odds: 1.66

Kings XI Punjab

Take nothing away from RCB’s play this season – they have been magnificent. Like clockwork, they have steamrolled their way through to the business end of the log, occupying third-place. Surely, Virat Kohli will be spurring his boys on to produce another worthwhile performance in this upcoming contest.

Prior to the start of the season, who would have envisaged RCB going neck-and-neck with the likes of MI and DC for the Indian Premier League title? Not me! However, this is exactly how things have played out. Kohli’s men are on a mission to strip the Mumbai Indians off their ‘champions’ tag.

Last time out against KKR, Royal Challengers Bangalore ran riot, winning the match by a staggering 82 runs. In inspired form, their top-four batting lineup have been giving opposition sides a lot to think about.

Partnering well in the opening overs, Aaron Finch and Devdutt Padikkal hit a massive 67-runs between themselves in the previous game. Alongside Virat Kohli, ADB took the game by the scruff of the neck, hitting 73 runs off just 33 balls. Their bowlers also came good.

Kings XI Punjab

These ones have come in for the stick from fans and the media alike, for their woeful performances this season. In fact, the gauntlet has been thrown down on coach Anil Kumble, many calling for his sack. He obviously has no clue, going forward, as to getting his team back on the right track.

Losing their previous five games on the bounce, KXIP currently sit rock-bottom on the standings. Losing their last match, as expected, KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal recorded a decent number of runs – 115! However, their lack of consistency cost them in the end, as they eventually lost by a measly 2 runs.

Following the dismissal of their openers, the middle order crumbled. With seven games already gone, it is pretty disturbing that KXIP are yet to discover their most efficient bowling combination. Rahul will be counting on Arshadeep Singh and Ravi Bishnoi to deliver the goods come Thursday evening.


RCB are currently on cloud-nine, winning their previous two games on the spin. It goes without saying that the players will be brimming with confidence ahead of this fixture. Kohli and ADB are on fire, and the bowling unit are putting in a great shift.

To be fair, KXIP were good in their previous game, and unlucky to have lost. You get the feeling that this side are getting back on track, and a win may be around the corner. That said, KXIP will likely struggle to keep red-hot RCB at bay. Hence, expect Kohli’s men to come out tops.
