KXIP vs RCB Probable Final Playing 11

This is going to be a battle of top order batsmen. Both the teams have been depending on it in the whole tournament. Both will try to expose the middle order of the opponent if they want to have any chances of victory in this match.

However, one thing is for sure; watching both previous RCB openers play against RCB is going to be exciting. Here is KXIP vs RCB Probable Final Playing 11.

How do the teams stack up?

Kings XI Punjab

The middle order conundrum still remains in this team. They have tried everything now, from experience to raw power, but nothing has worked so far. They will have to find a combination if they want to stay in the top 4. They cannot depend on KL Rahul in every match. Other teams are closing in and they can lose their position anytime now. Ashwin will have to work out some magic in the bowling department as well. He has not been very impressive with the ball. As a captain, he needs to play a very important role now, balance the team. They might go with the same combination.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

They achieved a remarkable victory against DD the other night, but the question still remains the same. What happens when Kohli and AB don’t perform? They will have to figure this out if they want to keep advancing to reach the playoffs. It looks like they even have stopped trying to figure out their best bowling combination. They are bleeding runs in the death overs and they need to keep a check on that. They cannot completely depend on their batting which only looks good on papers. They might want to continue with the same side hoping not to lose the newly-found momentum.
