Performance of the RCB & KXIP In IPL 2016 :-
RCB is one of the most strongest team of IPL 2016 in terms of their batting. They have very depth in their batting line up and from last couple of games the middle order batsman didn’t get chance to bat which shows how good their upper order is batting. The run machine captain Virat Kohli holding Orange cap in IPL 2016 with 752 runs in 12 innings and just behind him on 2nd spot AB de Villiers with 597 runs. Both the batsman scoring runs like a machine and from last couple of matches they shown the world that they are having best batting side. In a Match against Gujarat Lions RCB scored 248 runs in 20 overs which is second highest score of IPL history. Chris Gayle also back in the form which is a good sign for the team. He has scored 49 runs in 30 balls against with some sky kissing sixes. Lokesh Rahul, Shane Watson and Sachin baby also available in the middle order to support the batting unit. In the bowling squad Yuzvendra Chahal is the most successful bowler from their side. Shane Watson, Sreenath Aravind also seen effective in the last few matches. If they want to win the match then they have to work hard on their bowling and restricted KXIP batsman from playing big shots. RCB have played 12 matches so far in the tournament and with 6 wins (12 points) they are on the 5th place in the points table. For qualifying into the IPL 2016 Play-offs they have to win all 2 matches remaining including this match against KXIP.
Kings XI Punjab again on the last spot in the points table like previous year. They have played 12 matches in the IPL 9 out of which only won 4 matches and with 8 points they are on the 8th position. The big players still quiet so far. Fans are waiting for a big blusterous innings from them but they have disappointing all. David Miller have not scored any single half-century so far. Like him Glenn Maxwell is also not able to score any winning innings for the team. He has scored 2 fifties in the tournament so far but the innings for which he is famous is still missing in the tournament. Hope in the upcoming match he will play his natural game and fans can see the for which they waiting from the starting . Murali Vijay and recently joined Hasim Amla are looking good with the bat and in the up coming match we will see a good innings from them. The bowling unit is better than that of their batting . Both the pacer Mohit and Sandeep Sharma are doing well and providing break through to the team and are the leading wicket takers from KXIP side. In spin attack we Axar Patel is there for the team who is fairly economical so far. Marcus Stoinis is performing with his bat and also with the ball.
The team which will play good cricket in all department will win the match. If RCB want to qualifies to the play-offs then they have to win the match any how ( Match Prediction is given below). If Royal Challengers Bangalore wins the RCB vs KXIP match then they will move to the 2nd spot in the points table.
