The Dubai International Cricket Stadium will host the sixth game of Dream11 IPL when Kings XI Punjab will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore today.
Both the teams have played one match each with KXIP losing the match to Delhi Capitals in super over and on the other side, a well-balanced side of Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by 10 runs.
Kings XI Punjab have only themselves to blame for not being able to squeeze the winning run in three deliveries in their opening match against Delhi Capitals. KXIP big guns had let them down in the run chase if it wasn’t Mayank Agarwal single-handed effort to get to DC’s score.
Royal Challengers Bangalore having won their first match against Sunrisrers Hyderabad with the sparkling batting of Devdutt Padikkal and AB de Villiers gave their bowlers cushion to defend the target.
Mohammad Shami was in sensational rhythm against Delhi Capitals with Ravi Bishnoi also took to his task rather well ensured to keep Delhi Capitals’ top-order in check.
For RCB bowling remain their weakness, the opening bowler’s Dale Steyn and Umesh Yadav proved expensive for their side.
Both the team’s Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore have faced each other 24 times in the IPL so far and the teams stand level with 12 wins each to their name.
