Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Kings XI Punjab in Sharjah on Thursday, with one team likely to reach the knockout stages and the other looking to exit early. In IPL 2020, RCB is in the third position in the last round of the league and KXIP is in the last position, which is expected to change the fate of all the teams. If there is any remote scope of recovery. This has also become a dangerous side for them, as it is now a situation for them not to lose anything and playing any matches here will annoy the top ranked players.
The RCB is now working like an oily side. Batting between Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers is looking really dangerous, Devdutt Paddhikal and now Aaron Finch have also added muscle.
RCB bowling has also started production and Chris Morris has gritted his teeth in attacks on Yuzvendra Chahal, Isru Udana and Washington Sundar and is now likely to be the IPL’s most isolated attack.
Kings XI Punjab will no longer be able to buy victory. Compared to the rest of the batsmen in IPL 2020, captain KL Rahul is still facing dreams of defeat.
Take their match against Kolkata Knight Riders. Chasing 144, KXIP scored 144/1 in 1.1.1 overs and the 20 overs ended at 1162/5, much to the surprise of both sides.
That too describes a lot of the KXIP season.
It is amazing to see that KCIP last visited RCB in IPL 2020, Rahul scored a century, Ravi Bishnoi and the rest of the bowlers participated and RCB lost by runs. It looks real now.
But now that they’ve been cornered, KKIPIP can do nothing but fight back and there could be thin ice that RCB seems to avoid. Now any issues lost can be a disaster for all concerned, so it is imperative that they do not travel from KXIP and then there will be losses.
