Match number six between Kings Punjab XI v Royal will take place today on 24th September 2020 which will host by The Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
RCB comes into this game after their 10-run win against Sunrisers Hyderabad and Virat Kohli and Co. aim to seal their second win in a row.
In contrast, KXIP came painfully close to winning its opening game before Delhi Capitals got their nerve to take a Super Over victory. KL Rahul, who is leading the team for only the second time, is looking to book his first win as IPL captain against the franchise he once played for.
Head to Head Contest
There have been 24 instances of these two teams facing each other in the IPL and there is nothing that can separate them as both teams have won 12 games each. Which players do you think will help their team win one and make it 13-12 in the head-to-head competitions?
Mayank Agarwal scored an impressive 89 points almost single-handedly KXIP in the opening game against Delhi Capitals. The right-handed man was calculating and did a good job mixing caution with aggression. While KXIP wants their other batsmen to be good, Mayank will look forward to continuing his form and leading the team home.
Navdeep Saini had a good foray in RCB’s first game of the season. The right arm pacemaker picked up two wickets for 25 runs when RCB beat SRH for 10 runs. With his pace he is deadly, no matter what stage of the game he bowls. With RCB now aiming for their second straight win, Saini will be critical to the team’s success.
The left-hander had a great season in white ball cricket, fulfilling the promise he made on his IPL debut, scoring fifty goals against SRH. In the second RCB game of the season, Devdutt Padikkal meets a team led by his Karnataka teammate KL Rahul.
Mohammad Shami was exceptional with the ball against DC and came back with numbers 3/15. He is again expected to lead the KXIP bowling attack when they face RCB in their second game. He can hit the deck hard and swing the ball at speed. Hence, it will be interesting to see how the battle develops between him and upper and middle order RCBs.
He played an important role, scalping three wickets, including that of a well-seeded Jonny Bairstow, when RCB defeated SRH in the first game. Yuzvendra Chahal will once again be critical to the team’s success when they face KXIP in their second game of the season.
