IPL 2020: Match 6, KXIP vs RCB – Fantasy Cricket Tips, Possible Playing XIs, Weather and Pitch

Fantasy Tips for Match 6 of IPL 2020.

RCB and KXIP will be playing their second game

Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are coming off contrasting results into their second game of the IPL 2020.

KXIP lost a game that they should have won as they needed just one run from the last three balls but they couldn’t cross the line. On the other hand, RCB looked out of the game when SRH needed only 43 of the last five overs but their bowlers held their nerves and did it for them.

Kings XI Punjab doesn’t want to start their IPL campaign with two consecutive losses so they would want to win this game whereas RCB would like to continue the winning momentum and make it two in two. Both the teams have played their first game at this venue so they might be familiar with the conditions which will make it slightly easy for the players to perform.

KXIP has a lot of Karnataka boys so it would be fun to watch them come up against the Bangalore team on Thursday.

Pitch and Weather Report

The temperature is not going to change most probably and there is going to be a lot of heat which will take out a lot of energy from the players.

In the first two games played at this venue, we have seen scores around 160 being scored and they are difficult to chase down. There was some dew in both the games but the old ball doesn’t come on the bat. We might see a similar score in this game as well.

Team News

Kings XI Punjab

Kings XI Punjab will be very disappointed that they threw a game which they should have won. Mayank Agarwal was brilliant but failed to finish off the match as he got out at the wrong moment. Other than Agarwal, most of the other batsmen failed to make a mark and would like to change things in this game.

Among the bowlers, Ravi Bishnoi had an impressive debut as he was economical and picked up a wicket as well. Mohammad Shami was breathing fire as he was bowling some quick bouncers. Chris Jordan struggled with the ball and he might be left out in this game. KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal will be the key players to watch out for.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Unlike last year, RCB has started on the winning note as they defeated SRH by ten runs in their opening game. Everybody was waiting to see Devdutt Padikkal bat and he hasn’t disappointed anyone as he scored a superb fifty. AB De Villiers was back to business as he scored a quickfire fifty.

Yuzvendra Chahal and Navdeep Saini were exceptional with the ball and Chahal’s last over turned the game for them. Umesh Yadav struggled badly needs to put up a better performance. Virat Kohli who couldn’t make an impact in the first game would desperately want to do something in the second game.

Fantasy Prediction

Mayank Agarwal, Virat Kohli, Devdutt Padikkal, Karun Nair, KL Rahul, AB De Villiers, Glenn Maxwell, Shivam Dube, Mohammad Shami, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal

Captain: AB De Villiers, Vice-Captain: KL Rahul
