Royal Challengers Bangalore with five wins from seven matches is sitting at third place and will look to add another two points to their account. On the other hand, Kings XI Punjab have only two points from seven matches and are in a position from where they need to win their all matches so they will look to start a winning streak from this match.
Here we are going to discuss strengths and weakness of Royal Challengers Bangalore as well as of Kings XI Punjab and will also make our BLR vs KXIP Today Match Prediction –
Royal Challengers Bangalore’s major strength is their top order batting of Aaron Finch, Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers and all these batsmen have put some good performances and once again will be key. In the bowling the addition of Chris Morris has strengthened them and now they have a good bowling unit in Chris Morris, Navdeep Saini, Isuru Udana, Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar who all are doing their jobs very well and will have to continue their good form.
On the other hand, Kings XI Punjab’s major strength is their inform opening pair of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal who have scored more than 700 runs between them so far and once again they will look to give a good start. Nicholas Pooran too is batting well and the return of Chris Gayle will further strengthen them. In the bowling Mohammad Shami, Ravi Bishnoi and Arshdeep Singh have been good so far and they have to be at their best to stop Bangalore’s side.
Royal Challengers Bangalore’s weakness is their middle order as after AB de Villiers they don’t have an experienced batsmen. The likes of Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Isuru Udana and Chris Morris haven’t faced enough balls yet and if some early wickets fall Bangalore can face a lot of problems so they need to strengthen their lower batting order.
Kings XI Punjab’s weakness is their out of form middle order as the likes of Mandeep Singh, Glenn Maxwell, Sarfraz Khan, Karun Nair and Simran Singh have been poor with bat and it creates a lot of pressure on top order. In bowling their fourth and fifth bowlers are struggling to take wickets and in middle overs they leak a lot of runs and neither their bowlers are bowling well in death overs.
