KXIP vs RCB IPL 2020 Match 6: Match build-up and Predicted Lineups

Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore are all set to play the match 6 of the Dream11 IPL 2020 at Dubai, later this evening. Both the teams would be playing their second match of this season as they face off in an exciting clash.

Virat Kohli and his side will be brimming with confidence after a victory in their first game. The manner in which they comfortably won against the Sunrisers Hyderabad would have been been the icing on the cake for the RCB franchise and it’s fans who for so long have awaited such a commanding start from their team to an IPL season. Debutant Devdutt Padikkal showed what a promising talent he is after a fantastic half-century in the first game followed by a classy half-century by Mr.360 in AB de Villiers.

KL Rahul would be a disappointed captain after his side lost their first game to the Delhi Capitals in the Super Over. Opener Mayank Agarwal single-handedly took the game to the super over for Punjab as he scored 89 runs off just 60 balls to start off the campaign in a scintillating fashion for himself. Mohammad Shami was brilliant with the ball as he continues to be a consistent performer in the KXIP outfit. Debutant Ravi Bishnoi was another positive for the Kings XI as he picked up a wicket and conceded just 22 runs in his 4 over spell. Former leg-spinner and current head coach Anil Kumble would have been really proud of the young leg-spinner playing his very first IPL game.
