Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will look to build on their two emphatic consecutive victories as they continue their push for an Indian Premier League (IPL) play-off berth in a match against laggards Kings XI Punjab in Bengaluru on Wednesday.
Placed at the fifth spot with six wins from 12 matches, the Bangalore franchise has gained momentum at the right time with two massive victories in their previous two outings against Gujarat Lions (by 144 runs) and Kolkata Knight Riders (by nine wickets).
On the other hand, languishing at the penultimate spot, Punjab received another massive jolt on Tuesday when in-form Australian batsman Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis were ruled out.
Royal Challengers Bangalore: Gayle, Kohli, de Villiers, Watson, Rahul, Baby, Binny, Jordan, Aravind, Aaron, Chahal
Kings XI Punjab: Vijay, Amla, Saha, Miller, Behardien, GM Singh, Abbott, A Patel, M Sharma, Sandeep, Cariappa.
