Without the likes of their trumps Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, RCB appeared to have lost the veneer in their first two games. Though they began their IPl 10 campaign with a loss, a well-fought win over Delhi Daredevils at M.Chinnaswamy Stadium kept them away from losing the ground. RCB doesn't often heavily rely on their bowlers to pull them through. But, injuries to their key batsmen have made them do so, particularly in the beginning of this IPL season. Their bowlers are doing well. If Tymal Mills has been exceptional with pace variations, Yuzvendra Chahal has made it tight for the batsmen to free their arms. The stand-in skipper Shane Watson, too, is delivering the promise with ball. A win, despite posting moderate 157 at M Chinnaswamy stadium, is a fine testimony of their true bowling strength. And also, a lot will depend on their bowlers if they want to become the winner of KXIP Vs RCB match.
KXIP is supposed to play with an unchanged squad in Kings XI Punjab Vs Royal Challengers Bangalore, match No.8. In their first game, Punjab bowled right line and length to keep a tight rein on Ajinkya Rahane, Steve Smith and MS Dhoni. If Punjab has to become the winner of KXIP Vs RCB match, Mohit and Sandeep will have to maintain their rhythm. They just need to focus on dot deliveries in the initial overs. As Bangalore has an attacking top-order studded with likes of Gayle, Watson, Kedar Jadhav and Mandeep Singh, a few dot deliveries could add some pressure on them resulting in quick downfalls. Let's see what strategy do they adopt to conquer RCB in the next match?
Will Kings XI Punjab register their second consecutive win getting the better of RCB in Indore?
