IPL 2012 – Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kings XI Punjab Match Preview

By on April 20, 2012

Today 8:00PM Royal Challengers Bangalore is going to face KIngs XI Punjab at Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, Mohali, Chandigarh. Both the teams have won 2 out of 5 matches. In the previous season, i.e. in IPL 2011, both of the teams were able to have one victory for them. In the match at Bangalore, RCB were victorious and in the match played at Dhmarmasala, Kings XI Punjab were victorious.

When speaking about Royal Challengers Bangalore, we have this big hitter Chris Gayle, who can alone make a huge difference. He proved this in the previous match with Pune Warriors India, in hit 8 huge sixes and he alone made 81 runs in 48 balls. Muralitharan has been replaced by Tillakaratne Dilshan, who along with Gayle are capable of making huge score.

RCB team also includes AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli, and Saurabh Tiwary, who are also good hitters. On the bowling side they have good bowlers like, Zaheer Khan, and the skipper Daniel Vettori.

When coming to Kings XI Punjab, skipper Adam Gilchrist is also a good hitter, he made a huge individual score of 111 on RCB in the previous season of IPL (IPL 2011). They also have David Hussey, who is also a dangerous batsmen, but he was not able to score huge scores till now in this IPL season. Another good player, Azhar Mahmood is also now in the team as his visa issues have been solved.

When coming to bowling side they have Dimitri Mascarenhas, who took 5 wickets while playing against KKR. They also have the good bowlers like Praveen Kumar, and Piyush Chawla. One drawback to the Kings XI Punjab is that there is doubt whether the skipper Gilchrist will be playing or not. If he isn’t playing, then Hussey will be leading the team.
