Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are all set for their second match of the IPL 2020. RCB will be taking on the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, where they played their last game as well.
Virat Kohli’s men are coming into the match with the confidence of winning the first game against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). KXIP, on the other hand, lost their first game against Delhi Capitals in the Super Over.
Pitch and Weather conditions
If the last two games at this venue are any indicators, the pitch has been fair for both batsmen and the bowlers. The pacers will be in contention with the new ball, while the spinners will enjoy themselves in the middle overs. All in all, it would be one thrilling contest in the hot weather of Dubai. Batting second might help the teams with the dew factor coming into play in the latter half of the game.
Kings XI Punjab: KL Rahul (c & wk), Mayank Agarwal, Glenn Maxwell, Mandeep Singh, Sarfaraz Khan, James Neesham, Krishnappa Gowtham, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Mohammed Shami, Sheldon Cottrell, Ravi Bishnoi
Royal Challengers Bangalore: Aaron Finch, Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers, Josh Philippe (wk), Washington Sundar, Shivam Dube, Navdeep Saini, Umesh Yadav, Dale Steyn, Yuzvendra Chahal.
