Currently, the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) are locking horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at PCA’s IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali. After winning the toss, the RCB skipper, Virat Kohli asked the hosts to bat first citing the chances of heavy dew in the second innings. However, the hosts started their innings brilliantly as their openers, KL Rahul and Chris Gayle almost smashed all the Bangalore bowlers in the powerplay.

During the toss, the MI skipper, R Ashwin revealed that they have made three changes in their squad Hardus Viljoen, Karun Nair, and Ankit Rajpoot made way for Mayank Agarwal, Andrew Tyer, and M Ashwin. On the other hand, RCB made just one change as Tim Southee made way for Umesh Yadav.

Gayle and Rahul started blasting the RCB bowlers from the start as they amassed 60 runs in the powerplay overs. However, in the 7th over Rahul got out after smashing a six to Yuzvendra Chahal. In his next over, Chahal did the same to Mayank Agarwal as after smashing a six to Chahal, Agarwal got out on the very next ball. Even Sarfaraz Khan also got out after smashing the six, but this time the bowler was Mohammad Siraj.
