So far, only Sunrisers Hyderabad (18 points) and Chennai Super Kings (16 points) have guaranteed themselves a place in the playoffs. In their past two defeats, Punjab’s problem was their batting and bowling both which failed to click for the Ravichandran-led side. To win against Bangalore, Punjab captain Ravichandran Ashwin would know that both their batting and bowling must click. On the other hand, Bangalore have registered a resounding win in their last league encounter against Delhi. The dynamic duo of Kohli (466 runs) and Ab de Villiers (358 runs) are the pillar of strength for RCB. Apart from the duo, Mandeep Singh has been impressive having scored 245 runs so far but the others have been inconsistent. It will be an interesting contest as both the teams have several world class players who can turn the tables at the small stadium in Indore. (LIVE SCORECARD) (IPL Full Coverage)

Brief Preview: Having found some light at the end of the tunnel, Royal Challengers Bangalore will be keen to expose the chinks in Kings XI Punjab’s armoury during their must-win Indian Premier League encounter at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore. RCB got some breathing space after their five-wicket victory against Delhi Daredevils while Kings XI Punjab, after a brilliant run at the initial stages, are currently struggling with back to back defeats.

Despite losses to Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders, KXIP are in the top half of the league with 12 points while RCB are still languishing at the second last place in the table. However in IPL, strange things have happened at the business end of the tournament and RCB, under Virat Kohli, are likely to put a lot of pressure on the slipping KXIP. (Read Full Match Preview)
