RCB vs KXIP: Match Preview & Dream 11 Fantasy Tips | IPL 2019

RCB vs KXIP Match Preview – The Chinnaswamy Stadium will witness a mouth-watering contest tonight when the Royal Challengers will lock their horns with the visitors, Kings XI Punjab.

The 42nd match of IPL 2019 will be played tonight at 08:00 PM local time.

Royal Challengers are back on a winning track and Virat Kohli is highly pleased with his team’s performance in the last two games.

RCB has defeated the on-song Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in a thrilling encounter on Sunday. With their 1 run win over CSK, the chances of RCB to qualify for the playoffs are still alive.

On the other hand, despite having a satisfactory start to the season, the Ashwin-led Kings XI Punjab are now on the lower side of confidence. They have to manage to register only one win in their last 4 matches and are thus on 5th position in the points table.

Last time when both these team faced each other, RCB defeated KXIP by 5 wickets. The innings from skipper Virat Kohli and his batting companion AB de Villers were absolutely amazing.

Now, with RCB getting back on the winning track, it’ll be very interesting to see, how both the teams tackle each other’s strategies to get themselves up in the points table.
