Today in the 31st match of 2020 IPL. Royal Challengers Bangalore will appear against Kings XI Punjab at Sharjah International Cricket Stadium. The Kohli led RCB is currently at the 3rd position of the points table with 10 points, KXIP is at the bottom of the table with just one victory thus 2 points. The only victory made by Punjab is against RCB that too a gigantic victory of 97 runs. RCB had won 5 out of the 7 matches played.
RCB will try to continue their winning streak to make sure of their playoffs. But for KXIP the upcoming matches are “Do or Die”. They must win all the upcoming matches to confirm their playoffs and that seems like a “mission impossible”. Today Kings XI Punjab would be determined to complete a double of Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2020 having bagged their only win of the season against the Virat Kohli-led franchise.
The return of Chris Gayle is expected to boost Punjab’s batting performance after the Universe Boss declared that he has successfully recovered from a stomach bug. The short boundaries of Sharjah stadium are expected to be more helpful for the universal boss. Along with Gayle, skipper KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal are at the good performance that will help the team to score well. The bowling department is not up to the mark, if they are able to take a hike on the performance today KXIP will find their second victory against RCB.
Today RCB will be trying to make sure of their playoffs with this victory. RCB had won their last match against KKR at Sharjah. All of their batsmen performed well, and AB de Villiers scored a marvellous 73 off the 33 deliveries faced. RCB bowlers are their best performance against KKR.
Our prediction: Today KXIP will be making their second victory over RCB.
