IPL Match – 8, Likely Playing XI RCB v/s Kings XI Punjab



Royal Challengers of Bangalore had a great last match. They won their first match at home this year. No one gave them a chance to defend 157 runs at the Chinnaswamy Stadium wicket but RCB bowlers did it. This will be RCB’s second away match of the season. AB De Villiers has been declared fit. It will be interesting to see who RCB drop to accomodate ABD. Expect Changes in the Likely Playing XI RCB. There will be a big head ache for RCB selectors tonight. Young Billy Stanlake was excellent for them in the last match. Punjab are CHris Gayle’s favourite opposition. Shane Watson was excellent with the ball last match. He also found some batting form at the top of the order. So which four players RCB pick will be very interesting. Iqbal Abdullah was expensive but he picked up 2 crucial wickets last match. Stuart Binny was not used as a bowler last match. In all likely hood Binny will have to bowl his quota of 4 overs in this match. If RCB prefer ABD over Stanlake rather than Gayle. Will ABD captain RCB or will Watson continue to be the captain of the side is also interesting to see.
