Still looking for their first win, Royal Challengers Bangalore need something out of the box to save their team from another defeat. Probably, the team needs to stick together to produce a performance that is fullest as they take on one of the toughest teams in this IPL. Unfortunately, they don’t have many options as well. So, it’s all about playing the game as a team and sticking together.
For Punjab, Gayle is likely to play today so is Mayank Agarwal. Their biggest strength is the form of KL Rahul who scored a ton in his last match. It will be interesting to see if he can continue.
Batting has not been easy at Mohali so far and the dew will play its role as well.
Siraj, who injured himself recently will be replaced by Umesh Yadav.
Probable XI: KL Rahul (wk), Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Sarfaraz Khan, David Miller, Mandeep Singh, Sam Curran, Hardus Viljoen, Ravichandran Ashwin (c), Murugan Ashwin, Mohammed Shami
Probable XI: Parthiv Patel (wk), Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers, Marcus Stoinis, Moeen Ali, Akshdeep Nath, Pawan Negi, Tim Southee, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal, Umesh Yadav
