IPL Match 6: Kings XI Punjab vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Prediction and Preview

24.09.2020, 19:30 IST
Dubai International Cricket Stadium
For the 6th match of this year’s IPL, we have two teams in starkly different states of morale. While Kings XI Punjab lost a match that a street kid with a gnarly tree branch for a bat could probably have won, Royal Challenges Bangalore eked out a W from a match that they had absolutely no business winning. As a result, KXIP are devastatingly disappointed, while RCB are justifiably jubilant. Nevertheless, the pair have only played one match each, and with 13 matches to go for both teams, anything could happen. RCB does have a more evident upper hand in that they have won four of the last 5 encounters between these two teams. That being said, it’s still anyone’s game, and before it begins, let’s take at the two pavilions.

Kings XI Punjab Preview & Form

It’s a soul-crushing feeling to lose a winning game, but to lose a game when you need 1 run from 3 deliveries and have four wickets in hand is just a whole other level of pathetic. Add to that the history of Punjab’s poor performances, and you have a recipe for morale disaster. In a topsy-turvy last match, Punjab were dominating early after reducing Delhi Capitals to 13 for 3 from four overs, but a steady albeit conservative partnership followed by some incendiary hitting saw DC reach a decent 157. During their chase, one-man army Mayank Agarwal did the lion’s share of the work despite wickets falling around him, but when faced with the aforementioned scenario of 1 off 3, Punjab couldn’t do it. To add insult to injury, they only scored a laughable 2 in the Super Over. Absolutely dreadful way to lose a match - and the first of the season at that.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Preview & Form

In stark contrast, Royal Challengers Bangalore seemed to be executing a run-of-the-mill performance when they put up 163 for Sunrisers Hyderabad to chase. With the exception of AB de Villiers, no one seemed to have that aggressive spark. In reply, SRH seemed to be firmly in the driver’s seat up till 121, when they needed 43 with 8 wickets in hand and almost 5 overs remaining. However, one of the worst collapses in T20 history saw them fold for 153 with two balls to go. With such an incredible comeback - SRH bringing it upon themselves notwithstanding - RCB will be pumped for their next match.
