In the second fixture of big Saturday will witness Kings Xi Punjab taking on Royal Challengers Bangalore in Mohali. The hosts faced a narrow defeat by 3 wickets at the hands of Mumbai Indians in a close encounter while the Royal Challengers Bangalore are still searching for their first win.

Placed at the bottom of the table, Royal Challengers Bangalore has six defeats in as many encounters. This will be their seventh game and they would be desperate for their maiden win. They are yet to find the perfect combination and have signed Dale Steyn as a replacement for injured Nathan Coulter Nile lately.
