Royal Challengers Bangalore are batting first after winning the toss. Match starts at 8 PM IST. (LIVE UPDATES) (FULL SCHEDULE)
In mundane form, Chris Gayle has been dropped and fit-again AB de Villiers returns to the RCB playing XI. Gayle needs 25 more runs to be the first batsman to score 10,000 T20 runs but now has to wait for a chance to make the 11 again.
RCB batsmen will have to cope up to the Kings XI Punjab bowlers, who gave a good account of themselves in their opening match against Rising Pune Supergiants.
The likes of Sandeep Sharma, Mohit Sharma, Swapnil Singh and Axar Patel restricted the Steve Smith-led side to below 165 and set the base for a brilliant win. Marcus Stoinis also did well and Punjab are likely to persist with him against Bangalore as well.
