It’s been an amazing five days of cricket in IPL 2020. We have seen some sensational knocks from cricket veterans, heart-warming shots from debutants and match-changing spells from T20 specialists. Not to forget the super-over which took place only in the second match of IPL 2020.

The sixth match of IPL 2020 will be played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kings Eleven Punjab on Thursday. Both the teams have played one game in the tournament. While RCB proved victorious in the first game against SHR, Kings XI Punjab lost in the super over.

Both teams would look to look for a win in their second game as we could expect a great spectacle at Dubai International Stadium.

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

RCB vs SRH

Unlike the previous editions, RCB have started their campaign with a win and would be keen on making it two in two. After a long long time, RCB would be confident of an opening pair that they could persist with throughout the tournament. Devdutt Padikkal, on his debut, played a superb knock against SRH. With that knock, he has perhaps cemented his place in the eleven for at least next few games, in not all. Aaron Finch is likely to partner him in the next game as well. Virat Kohli at three, followed by AB de Villiers at four- the batting seams on the right track for RCB.

The middle-order comprising of Washington, Dubey and Gurkeerat also need to step up to the plate and prepare themselves for the tougher games ahead.

Given the way RCB’s bowling performed yesterday, they might be tempted to bring in Moeen Ali in the eleven in place of Josh Phillippe.

Yuzvendra Chahal and Navdeep Saini will be the biggest bets for the side. The duo displayed telling performances in the last game. The team would be hopeful of similar performances in the next game as well.

Kings Eleven Punjab:

Kings Eleven Punjab

Skipper, KL Rahul looked in fine touch before he got out to a peach of a delivery from Mohit Sharma. The team would want him to play a big inning tomorrow. Mayank Agarwal played arguably the best knock of his career in the last game against Delhi Capitals. The innings would have given him a lot of deliveries.

Overseas players such as Glenn Maxwell and Nicholas Pooran both went out cheaply in the first game. Leaving out any one of your dream11 team could be a risky affair. A lot of responsibility would be on both of them to help KKR to score runs at a good rate in the middle overs.

Mohammad Shami has delivered the best bowling performance against Delhi Capitals in the tournament so far. He took 3 for wickets for just 15 runs in 4 overs. Expect the Indian seamer to delivery another great spell against a star-studded RCB line up. Besides, Sheldon Cottrell and spinner Ravi Bishnoi turned up with good numbers in the last game.
