With Kings XI Punjab required to win 4 out of their next five matches, the ball surely is on their court and Royal Challengers Bangalore who are already eliminated from the playoffs will try to make the going tough for KXIP. There is a good reason, other than the small dimensions of the Chinnaswamy Stadium, to include Chris Gayle. He has scored 797 runs against Kings XI in the IPL.
De Villiers and Virat Kohli have strong records against Sandeep. De Villiers has hit Sandeep for 59 runs off just 25 balls, while Kohli has taken 48 runs off 27 balls.
For RCB they would be hitting the field, playing for pride as they have zilch chances of making the playoffs. With that sort of a mindset it will be very difficult for Virat Kohli and Co. to get into the right frame of mind ahead of the Punjab encounter.
