RCB’s worrisome bowling continues to threaten their chances of progression. Going by their IPL 2016 performances so far, only batting can get can salvage something for the Bangalore side.

Kings XI Punjab have little at stake. Out of playoff contention, they can just hope to pull off a massive upset. Today’s match at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, a batsman’s paradise, will not be an easy place for the visitors.
