RCB vs KXIP Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2020

Royal Challengers Bangalore will look to continue their juggernaut when they take on a depleted Kings XI Punjab in the 31st match of the Indian Premier League. The match will be played on the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah and is scheduled to begin at 6:00 PM local time.

There is something about RCB in this year’s IPL. Not many people would have expected them to play the way they’ve played in the tournament but here they are, tied with Mumbai and Delhi as the best team of the tournament. At the moment RCB looks a very strong team that have all their bases covered. Devdutt Padikkal has been terrific at the top along with Aaron Finch, who’s been little inconsistent but has few knocks under his belt. Virat Kohli too made a grand comeback to form with consistent performances in the last few games and AB de Villiers, in the last match showed why he’s considered as one of the best cricketer of all time. In the bowling department, the spin duo of Washington Sundar and Yuzvendra Chahal has been nothing short of extra ordinary while the returning Chris Morris has already showed how much of an asset he is for RCB. 

For Punjab, things have got from bad to worse with every passing game. With 6 losses and a sole victory, they are strangled at the bottom of  the points table and will need almost a miracle to get through to the playoffs. They have been far too much dependent of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal that has hurt them badly. In the last match against KKR, they’re cruising to victory but the wicket of KL Rahul exposed their vulnerable middle order that couldn’t get Punjab over the line. Their bowling too lacks the cunningness you need to win these sorts of tournaments. These are worrying signs for the Kings. For Punjab,  beating RCB will be an uphill task but they would want to give it all they have. They’ve lost quite a few close games and need some luck to go their way.

RCB vs KXIP Toss Prediction

Earlier teams winning the toss were looking to chase in Sharjah but the pitch has drastically changed its behaviour and batting first looks the most feasible option.

Weather Report

The weather at Sharjah is expected to make the players sweat with temperatures touching 38 degree Celsius.

Pitch Condition

The pitch at Sharjah is getting slower with each passing day. Batting second will be very difficult on this wicket now

RCB Team News

RCB was in top form against Kolkata Knight Riders and looked as ruthless as one could be. Kohli would not want to change that winning combination. 

RCB Key Players

  • AB de Villiers: AB de Villiers is a match winner for RCB. In the last game against Kolkata, De Villiers played one of the best knock of this year’s IPL. RCB will back him to play another match winning knock.
  • Virat Kohli: King Kohli has got into a zone of his own and is piling on the runs on consistent basis. RCB fans can put their bet on Kohli to come good against Punjab
  • Yuzvendra Chahal: Yuzvendra Chahal has emerged as the biggest match winner for Virat Kohli. Match after match his performances have got to another level. He will be key for RCB on a slow Sharjah wicket.

RCB Team Form

With 5 wins in 7 games, RCB are in top notch form.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Predicted Playing 11

Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli (C), AB de Villier, Shivam Dube, Washington Sunder, Navdeep Saini, Chris Morris, Isuru Udana, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Siraj

Kings XI Punjab Team News & Playing 11

KXIP Team News

The major cause of Punjab’s downfall is their over reliance on KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal. Punjab need to change their combination as it doesn’t look like their best playing XI. One change that looks very obvious is Glenn Maxwell getting replaced by Chris Gayle. Deepak Hooda or Ishan Porel can also get a game in place of Mandeep Singh or Simi Singh.

KXIP Key Players

  • KL Rahul: No surprises here. KL Rahul has been in top form in this tournament. The orange cap holder, Rahul will be hopeful of another big knock for his team.
  • Mayank Agarwal: Mayank Agarwal too has been phenomenal in the tournament. He along with KL has done most of the run scoring for Punjab in IPL 2020. He too can be backed for another stellar show.
  • Ravi Bishnoi: Ravi Bishnoi as a spinner has played his part to perfection. Sharjah is a small ground but the pitch has given signs of a breakdown. Ravi Bishnoi can come in handy for Punjab

KXIP Team Form

Punjab has been on pretty steady losing streak. They have lost 6 off the 7 matches they’ve played

Kings XI Punjab Predicted Playing 11

KL Rahul(C&WK), Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Nicolas Pooran, Deepak Hooda/Simi Singh, Mandeep Singh, Chris Jordan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh.
