The toss is over and David Hussey is captaining Kings XI as Adam Gilchrist has not recovered from his hamstrings injury and for it is time to catch some live action as streaming of this match no. 44 from Bangalore begins in a while.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore will return to familiar pastures at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore to face the scrappy Kings XI Punjab on Wednesday night.RCB’s three game winning streak was brought to an abrupt halt at Kolkata where they struggled to remove Gautam Gambhir.The loss brought to the fore some old problems like fielding (Gambhir was dropped on 5 and 13 in the space of 3 balls enroute his 93), lack of penetrative bowling early in the innings and the batting besides Chris Gayle.
KXIP have fought hard to humble strong teams like KKR, MI and CSK away. Their problem is that they haven’t been able to hold that momentum too long. Shaun Marsh and David Hussey have been their best batsmen with smaller but crucial knocks coming from Mandeep Singh and Mahmood. Gilchrist wasn’t in too good form before his injury but his return could give them the direction they need to stay on course.
The two sides are a part of the mid table scrap and a win could push RCB to 3rd while KXIP could go to 4th with a win. The business end of the tournament approaching, both sides will want to be well placed to push for a top four finish.royalchallengers.com
