RCB will get a major boost as Dale Steyn has reportedly replaced injured Nathan Coulter-Nile in Royal Challengers Bangalore squad. Although, it is not likely that he will play today’s game.
Bengaluru: In the 28th match of VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL 2019) Kings XI Punjab will host Royal Challengers Bangalore at PCA IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali today (April 13). After six straight defeats, Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will look to stay afloat in the run for the playoffs as they take on an inconsistent Kings XI Punjab.
Nothing seems to be going right for RCB, who slumped to their sixth straight loss after going down to the Delhi Capitals on April 7. Kohli, who was recently named the Leading Cricketer of the year for the third successive time by Wisden Almanack, will hope that fortunes finally knock the doors of RCB as they need to win all their next eight matches to retain any hope of making it to the play-off.
