Royal Challengers Bangalore v Kings XI Punjab – Match Preview

Bangalore lost to Punjab heavily earlier in the 2020 IPL. Prior to that, the Royal Challengers had been defeated four times in a row by the Kings XI.

Bangalore are evidently more in form than Punjab at the moment, but have a tendency to lose matches when it matters most.

Where: Sharjah Cricket Stadium

When: Thursday, 15 October 2020

Start time: 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT)

Pitch conditions: The Sharjah Cricket Stadium has the smallest boundaries in the tournament. But 200-plus scores are not necessarily the norm any longer, as the pitch is slowing up after a busy couple of weeks.

Weather conditions: Thursday is forecast to be another hot day in Sharjah, with temperatures nearing 40 degrees celsius. The players will get some relief from the heat as afternoon turns to evening, but that will bring struggles with the dew for the team bowling second as well.

Royal Challengers Bangalore v Kings XI Punjab – Team News

Bangalore will be happy to have Chris Morris in the XI. He has recovered from injury and starred on debut recently.

It might be time to try someone else at the top of the order instead of Aaron Finch, too. Putting Parthiv Patel in as an opener would open a spot for another international player to come into the XI.

Adam Zampa could be that man – and again operate alongside fellow leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal.

The Kings XI Punjab will probably have to do without Sheldon Cottrell. The fast bowler has picked up an injury.

Chris Gayle might have recovered from sickness and could finally get a go at the top of the order. Plenty of criticism has come the way of KL Rahul, who is scoring plenty of runs but arguably too slowly. He could drop down the order if Gayle plays.

Plenty of eyes will be on Mujeeb ur Rahman again. He has come into the XI late – and was in fine form in the recent Caribbean Premier League. Let’s see if he can keep going.

Royal Challengers Bangalore v Kings XI Punjab – Betting Tips and Prediction

We have more IPL cricket betting tips for you. They could help you make better match predictions. These expert tips are based on the generous odds offered by Indian betting websites.

Pick Punjab to Have the Highest Opening Partnership

KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have been outstanding at the top of the order, scoring plenty of runs even if not at the greatest strike rate. KXIP’s dominance at the top of the order is nicely set to continue.

Perhaps Gayle will get a go at the top. Either way, KXIP are looking stronger than Bangalore to have the highest opening partnership. They are priced at 1.85 by 22Bet to do so.

Select a Century to Be Scored

The IPL 2020 has seen two centuries already. Both those centurions – Rahul and Agarwal – will probably be involved in this match.

Another man who has reached the 90s, Virat Kohli, is also bound to play. There are other big-hitters in this match as well. The boundaries are small and the century to be scored market well priced at 7.0 with 1xBet.

Back Bowled to Be the First Method of Dismissal

1xBet have split this market six ways, so you could pick up some winnings somewhere. But if you choose to bet on one method of dismissal outright, do so on bowled. It is priced at 4.74.

The Sharjah deck has been nipping around a bit, offering the opening and first-change bowlers something extra. It’s not improbable that one of the opening batsmen could be castled. We’ve seen it happened plenty of times.
