After defeating CSK the league toppers RCB will be filled with a whole lot of confidence and will bring that confidence into use when they come down into their home ground against Kings XI Punjab. Today RCB will come face to face against KXIP in Bangalore. Let’s us tell you that both of these franchises have once faced each other in this season and RCB had the last laugh when the match ended, but this time KXIP will look to win and crush down the hopes of qualifying into playoffs. We are covering RCB vs KXIP Dotball Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the T20 match.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
After giving a disastrous start to the season RCB looks back on track, they are still in contention to qualify for the playoffs. In last 2 matches, they have defeated some big franchise of this tournament and will be looking forward to continue their winning streak in this tournament.
Parthiv Patel, Virat Kohli, and AB De Villiers have the responsibility to contribute with the bat because RCB has no one in the middle order on which they can depend upon. Moein Ali might play his last match before leaving for England. Moein Ali had a great season and will look to sign off by playing some good cricket for RCB.
As Dale Steyn has joined the team RCB bowling is looking far stronger than before. He has been taking wickets for RCB in the early overs, which has been the turning point for RCB in the last couple of matches. Y Chahal is playing with the minds of batsmen and is bowling extremely well for the team yet against in this season.
Kings XI Punjab
Kings are coming to play at Chinnaswamy stadium and this is a kind of home ground for Chris Gayle who has spent lots of years at this ground playing for his former franchise RCB. Looking forward to his prime form Gayle Storm is expected on this ground on Wednesday.
Kings are currently at 5th position in the table and are coming with a close defeat in their last match Delhi Capitals. This is an important game if KXIP wants to stay in contention for qualifying into playoffs.
KL Rahul and Chris Gayle have to give a blistering start to KXIP so that their middle order can convert it into a big total because everyone knows how good RCB is? When it comes to chases.
Middle order felt short of runs against Delhi should play some good cricket for KXIP in this match as they have done throughout the season.
Bowling has been the biggest void in KXIP. If we exclude R Ashwin, then KXIP is still struggling to find a better go through bowler for them. Shami Ahmed form has also been On & OFF throughout the season. KXIP have to look something out of the box to fill some power in their bowling which might hamper their performances in the upcoming weeks.

Pitch Report (RCB vs KXIP Dotball Team Prediction)
This ground has always been the graveyard for the bowlers, as the ground is small so clearing ropes become very easy for the batsmen on this ground. No big score is safe on this ground during the chase. In the last match when RCB and CSK came down on this ground, more than 400 runs were scored in just 40 overs. This shows how interesting will be this clash. Chasing has always been easy at this venue but RCB stopped CSK from chasing the target in the last encounter.

All-rounders: Moein Ali and R Ashwin will be picked in this slot as these two players can change the game with their bowling and batting during the match. R Ashwin is not known as a batsman but when he gets the chance of playing a cameo role with the bat, he never lets his team down during that moment.
Bowlers: Y Chahal and Dale Steyn will be the go through bowler in this match. Y Chahal is already performing well but Dale Steyn who returned to RCB after a span of 9 years is finding big breakthrough’s for the team during the match.
