Kings XI Punjab and the Royal Challengers Bangalore have traditionally among the poor performers in the Indian Premier League. We don’t want to label them as ‘weak’ teams because that is just not true. Both of the teams have played one match and shown us glimpses of what we can expect from them this season.
The Kings XI side lost a heart-breaking match against the Delhi Capitals while RCB managed to start on a winning note against SRH. All the matches of IPL 2020 have been closely contested so far and we have no reason to believe this next match is going to be any different.
Kings XI Punjab vs Royal Challengers Bangalore IPL 2020 is going to be played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai on the 24th of September 2020.
Betway is running a campaign where it will offer Money Back as a Free Bet if your bet loses and last ball of the match is a boundary. We have always liked this type promotion, especially during IPL, which have number of boundaries being hit by either sides.
There has been enough discussion on social media and on the TV about that one short run which cost Kings XI the match but we just have this to say. The umpire was wrong at a crucial time but that still does not excuse not being able to get 1 from 3 deliveries at the end.
Kings XI are going to be distraught with their performance but they need to a bit worried as well.
Mayank Aggarwal played his best ever IPL inning and rescued a terrible batting effort. Big names like Lokesh Rahul, Glenn Maxwell, and Nicholas Pooran were not able to provide any sort of resistance to some decent bowling.
Can they afford to leave Chris Gayle out for the side?
We don’t think they are going to start making major changes to their team after just one match but the pressure on the incumbents is going to be on.
We could Mujeeb ur Rehman in the team for one of Cottrell or Jordan, though.
There is enough talent in the batting that a better result can be expected. Unfortunately, the nature of the wickets is such that we may see the Kings XI batsmen struggle in more games than not.
Mohammad Shami was the bowler of the match against Delhi. He bowled with fire, accuracy, and could have had another couple of wickets quite easily. Ravi Bishnoi also bowled well and could prove to be difficult to score off in this next match.
Lokesh Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair, Nicholas Pooran, Sarfaraz Khan, Glenn Maxwell, James Neesham, Mohammed Shami, Sheldon Cottrell, Murugan Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi.
RCB started with a win but it did not play at its best either. There are a lot of question marks against its bowling and those will have to be answered very soon. The biggest one may be regarding the presence of Dale Stey in the team. Is he doing enough to keep out the likes of Chris Morris, who can contribute with the bat as well? We don’t think so.
Umesh Yadav was very expensive and might not get the swing that makes him so effective in the powerplay. RCB might have to change tack and find someone else to start out with. Washington Sundar might be the answer here.
Navdeep Saini and Yuzvendra Chahal are world-class bowlers and showed it in the previous match. However, having to rely on Shivam Dube for almost three overs I not something that inspires too much confidence in this RCB bowling attack.
Devdutt Padikkal showed just he is rated so highly and made an impressive fifty. Both he and Aaron Finch struggled with the dot balls between their boundaries, though. Virat Kohli looked rusty and it was only because AB de Villiers power that they managed to reach a par-total.
We love the fact that RCB is playing Josh Philippe in its starting eleven because he is perhaps one of the most exciting players in the world.
Aaron Finch, Devdutt Padikal, V Kohli, AB de Villiers, Josh Philippe, Washington Sundar, Shivam Dube, NA Saini, Umesh Yadav, DW Steyn, YS Chahal.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. There is a lot of dew that comes by the time the second inning stats and makes batting much easier.

Rain is not something we have to worry about in the desert and that is a good thing. The pitch, however, is a lot more concerning. The groundsman has left a lot of grass on the surface but the true nature of these pitches cannot be hidden for long. We saw deliveries keep low and the spinners have a big impact in Dubai already.
The dew is a big factor as well and the side batting second has a definite advantage.
It appears as if a score around 160 is par. Anything over 170 is going to be pretty tough to chase.

These are two flawed sides with some awesome match-winners. Neither played to its potential in the opening match and showed some clear weaknesses. Will Kings XI panic and try to change things around? Will RCB actually make the obvious selection choices? Those are things we will know only after the toss.
In the meantime, we think backing RCB is a smart choice.
Bet on RCB to win.
The opening combination of Finch and Padikkal looked a lot more aggressive and in-form than Rahul and Aggarwal. We know that Rahul can be very explosive at the start but he may be under pressure to keep his wicket as the batsmen to follow are a bit weak.
Karun Nair has been a very unpredictable player for a very long time now. He has struggled in the IPL and got off to a poor start against Delhi as well. To have him at three where he is responsible for setting the tone of the inning seems a bit beyond him. We are happy backing him to fail once more.
The pitch at Dubai favors spinners and has a big boundary. Also, the likes of Pdikkal and Kohli are not renowned six-hitters. If they bat for any significant length of time getting more than 6 sixes in a match may be difficult. This seems like a good bet to make.
