RCB will play against KXIP in the sixth match of IPL 2020.
The match will be played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai on Thursday.
In their first game, RCB won against SRH, while KXIP lost their first game against DC. RCB is right now at the 3rd position in the points table while KXIP is in the 6th place.
KXIP chose to play Nicholas Pooran before Chris Gayle in their first game. Glenn Maxwell, Pooran, Chris Jordan, and Sheldon Cottrell were the first choices amongst the overseas players for the team.
Mayank Agarwal was the sole player who played a great game for KXIP in the first match.
RCB looks much more confident after winning their first game and they are now at the 3rd position.
The youngster Devdutt Padikkal and the mighty AB de Villers, both had scored half-centuries in that match.
Also, Shivam Dube and Yuzvendra Chahal did their job with the ball.
Aaron Finch playing in the top order does make the batting line-up strong. With additional players like Shivam Dube and Washington Sundar at No.6 and 7, RCB looks formidable.
It is highly likely that the teams will remain unchanged for tonight’s game.
