KXIP vs BLR Dream11 Prediction: Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore, after surviving the scare vs Sunrisers Hyderabad in their opening match, will take on good friend KL Rahul’s Kings XI Punjab, who messed it up completely in their opening match vs Delhi Capitals where they failed to score 1 run of the last 3 balls. Both teams need to improve what they offered as there are a lot of gaps they need to fill if they want to go deep into the tournament, RCB has to look at its lower middle-order as too much depends on the duo of Kohli-de Villiers (like always) and KXIP need to improve their death bowling considering they leaked a whooping 57 runs in their last 3 overs!
Indian Premier League Season 13
Kings XI Punjab vs Royal Challengers Bangalore
Date – Thursday, 24th September 2020
Time: 7:30 PM (IST); 6:00 PM (Local Time)
Venue – Dubai International Stadium, Dubai
Pitch Report: The pitch is tacky in nature meaning that the batsmen will have to work their way out. In both the games we have seen the batting was easier in the second innings when a little bit of dew sets in. Expect captain winning the toss to bowl first even though teams are not chasing too well so far in the tourney. Today's Match Predictions.
Team News KXIP – Chris Jordan went for 30 runs in his last over against Delhi Capitals while Mujeeb set on the bench. KXIP are likely to give Jordan another chance to redeem himself, and if not, Mujeeb replacing him could be the only change. So be cautious while selection you KXIP vs RCB Dream11 Team Prediction.
Team News RCB – Chris Morris didn’t play the first game as he is nursing a side strain. His inclusion is still dicey. Also, wicket-keeper Josh Philippe didn’t get much to do and seeing how Chahal bowled, Moeen Ali could be considered for this match. Below is the KXIP vs RCB Dream 11 Playing 11.

KXIP vs RCB Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Tips
KL Rahul: The KXIP captain failed twice against DC, once during the regulation 20 overs and once during the Super Over. But he is too good a player to not trust, he likes the ball coming onto the bat and will fancy his chances against RCB bowling attack.
Virat Kohli: The whole world was waiting to see captain Kohli bat and it was an anticlimax when he got out for 14. Therefore, you expect him to score good runs in this match as him failing twice in a row is unheard of. He also places himself at deep positions in death overs and catches almost everything. A no brainer in this KXIP vs RCB Today match prediction.
Mayank Agarwal: It was heart-breaking not only for KXIP fans but to fans all around the world to see Agarwal end up on losing side even after his herculean effort (60-ball 89). He made batting look so easy and almost single-handedly won KXIP the match. Expect him to continue his run as you can see that hunger in his eyes.
Yuzvendra Chahal: It was Chahal’s spell of 3/18 that triggered the infamous SRH collapse and won RCB the match. Kohli trusts this brainy leggie and bowls him in the toughest situation which Chahal thrives on. He also has a brilliant record against KXIP’s slogger, Glenn Maxwell, who he has dismissed five times in eight innings.
Glenn Maxwell: Yes, we mentioned him as “KXIP Slogger” in the above statement but it is the high-quality sloggers that make a difference in T20 matches. The Australian Dynamite has to pick the bowlers carefully, avoid Chahal if he can, and he will have a good score.
AB de Villiers: ABD looked in fine form during his innings of 51 and hit some lusty blow. It seemed as if he had been practicing a lot as he was right on money from the point go. He is one man who can change the match in a matter of few delivered.
KXIP vs RCB Dream11 Wicket-Keeper Pick
KL Rahul: Why would you want to choose someone else if you have an option of picking KL Rahul as your captain!? Yes, we want you to have ABD also in your team, so if he keeps (which we’ll know only after the toss) then you have both KL and ABD in your team.
Dream11 Most Affordable Players
Ravi Bishnoi (Credits 8): The young leggie was super impressive against DC and played with Rishabh Pant where he didn’t allow to touch him anything before cleaning him up. He showed tremendous control and would want to make a mark in which he is competing with Chahal.
Devdutt Padikkal (Credits 8): How good was this young batsman against SRH! He looked settled from the first ball and showed a great range of strokes. He has timing and power, perfect ingredients to be successful in T20s.
