Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will be keen to derail Kings XI Punjab’s (KXIP) momentum in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 when they take on KXIP in a must-win encounter at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore Today. RCB got their IPL 2018 campaign back on track after a five-wicket victory against Delhi Daredevils in their last match. Kings XI Punjab, on the other hand, after a brilliant run in the initial stages, have suffered consecutive defeats at the hands of Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders. Despite losses, KXIP are in the top half of the league with 12 points while RCB are still languishing at the second last place in the table. However in IPL, strange things have happened at the business end of the tournament and RCB, under Virat Kohli, are likely to put a lot of pressure on the slipping KXIP.
