Kings XI Punjab will be looking to make a positive return when they take on Royal Challengers Bangalore on Thursday at Dubai International Stadium. It will be a battle a teacher and apprentice as Virat Kohli and KL Rahul go face-to-face against each other. The KXIP’s captain looks up to RCB’s skipper as a role model and says the latter played an important role in moulding his personality. Both the Indian batsman looked rusty in their opening matches respectively and would eye to redeem their lost form. Both the teams are pretty much the same on paper with RCB having a slight edge due to experience.
RCB will be coming into the game with a win in the bag against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Meanwhile, Kings XI Punjab will be looking to forget the controversial ‘short-run decision’ against Delhi Capitals. And while the fantasy players begin scouring for potential players for their team, you much look at their head-to-head stats too.
