Royal Challengers Bangalore come into this fixture after defeating Kolkata Knight Riders in the last fixture. The good news for the host is that their hard-hitting batsman Chris Gayle managed to fire with the bat against the Knightriders. 

Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers were impressive with the bat, once again as the star duo remained unbetean until the end to make sure his side crusied through victory. The latest win has kept them alive in the race to finish in top four and two wins in last two matches will assure them a place in the Play-Offs.

Meanwhile, Kings XI Punjab have endured a disappointing Indian Premier League season, a season to forget. The only thing they can do now is to spoil RCB's chances of finishing in top four by defeating them in their own backyard.
