Thursday, October 15, 2020 07:30 PM
In the 31st match of IPL 2020, Royal challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kings Eleven Punjab (KXIP) will take on each other on Thursday at Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Virat Kohli-led RCB team would be very content after five-win from seven games and third place on the point table. In the previous game against KKR, AB de Villiers magical knock of 33 balls 73 help RCB defeat KRR by a huge margin of 82 runs and registered fifth win of the season. RCB’s bowling unit is in sensational form and successfully defended the score three times so far, they are very accurate and sharp. As always RCB has formidable batting line-up with the likes of Kohli, AB AB de Villiers and A Finch in their ranks and the trio is the biggest threat for any opponent team. Virat Kohli and co are playing good cricket this season and they would be hoping to carry on the good form and keep the momentum.
On the other hand, despite a KXIP opening duo of K L Rahul and Mayank Agrawal are the top two leading scorers in IPL 2020, their side is currently placed at the bottom of the table after just single win from seven games. The batting-duo has scored 70% of the run and both have smashed a century in IPL2020. However, their inconsistency in middle-order batting has hurt KXIP on many occasion. KXIP were very close to winning many games but they lost the key moments either in bowling and batting and hence failed to seal a victory in close-encounter. In bowling, the side has tried different combination but nothing worked in their favour. However, KXIP side will take positive of defeating the very same opponent during their first clash this season. KXIP got plenty of potentials, they will aim to rectify mistakes and play some fearless cricket to get back in winning ways.

BLR vs KXIP Dream11 Prediction
KXIP side lead by newly appointed skipper K L Rahul looks brilliant in the initial few games of the ongoing season and looks like a tough team to defeat. However, despite plenty of experienced player and youngsters in their rank, they failed under a pressure situation and lost five consecutive games. Now as the tournament moved to the second half of the league games, KXIP can’t afford to lose further games and its high time they click collectively and break the losing streak. On the positive side, the opening duo of K L Rahul and M Agarwal is the most successful batting pair so far this season. K L Rahul is currently leading scorer with 387 runs from 7 games at an average of 64.50. Notably, K L Rahul smashed 132 against RCB during their first meeting this season. He is a pivotal player in KXIP batting and he would be aiming for match-winning knock. M Agrawal also scored with a strike rate of 158 during 337 runs in last 7 games. He is an explosive batsman and big match-winner.
In the middle-order, N Pooran has done a decent job in the limited opportunity he got. However, Aussies power-hitter Glen Maxwell has failed to live up the expectation; he may get replaced by C Gayle in this game. Bowling unit led by M Shami done the stupendous job for his team; picked 10 wickets from seven games. Arshdeep Singh another pacer also looks good and shown great courage bowling in death overs. KXIP bowlers need to work on their economy and they need to be very disciplined and sharp playing against batting heavy RCB unit. Death bowling is a big concern for skipper KL Rahul.
