No Result : 0
Punjab have won just a single game so far in this season and the coincidence is that the win was over Royal Challengers Bangalore. Despite defeating RCB earlier this season, I am not expecting Punjab to win this time too.
I am backing RCB to win this one. RCB has found their rhythm in this season and are looking balanced side.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Probable Playing XI :

Rajasthan Royals Probable Playing XI :
Player to Watch Out : KL Rahul
Kings XI Punjab are desparate for a win having won only one match from 7 matches they've played so far. Their openers KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal are leading the charts in the Orange Cap race at first and second position. I am expecting some changes in KXIP for today's match. With Glenn Maxwell continuously struggling to get runs, I am hoping that finally Chris Gayle will get a match.
Bangalore on the other hand, are playing good cricket and I expect them to qualify for playoffs. Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers have been pretty good with the bat for Bangalore. Yuzvendra Chahal is the top wicket taker for RCB. With Chris Morris back in the side, RCB is now looking a dangerous side.
