It is time for the battle between Kings Xi Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore as the teams led by two close friends go up against each other at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. It’s going to be a fierce battle between the two given that Royal Challengers Bangalore are at their very best this season.
On the other hand, Kings XI Punjab look very topsy this season as they haven’t won more than two matches this season as they lie last in the points table. KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have been doing the bulk of the scoring but in return, other batsmen and bowlers haven’t supported the duo from Karnataka.
Which is why this match will be an exciting affair as Royal Challengers Bangalore will look to continue their sublime form this season whereas Kings XI Punjab will look to bounce back in fashion this season. Quite a few new changes are expected in both sides which is why let’s take a look at the five key players to watch out for in today’s match.
Let us take a look at the five key players to watch out for when Kings XI Punjab lock horns with the Royal Challengers Bangalore:
1. Chris Gayle
The universe boss is expected to make his return to Kings XI Punjab after not having featured in any of the games this season. With the disappointing run, the million-dollar man Glenn Maxwell is having this season, Gayle is all set to play against his former team Royal Challengers Bangalore.
With KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal both looking in great nick this season-opening the batsmen, it will be interesting to see at what position Chris Gayle bats today.
