This match is between RCB of this year and what looks like is RCB of every other year. Yeah! such has been their campaign this year. They have two batsman who are in top five of the highest run getters of the season, they have Shami who is in fine nick and still they manage to fluff their chances. RCB and their skipper Virat Kohli will know the mentality of KXIP at this time and would relish this opportunity.
RCB are in great form in this tournament and artical of Chris Morris in the playing beleven means that Virat Kohli can trust their troops more. Chris Morris the millionaire buy of RCB arrived late but arrived good to the scene. As it is still early to say but Morris has played two games this season and picked 5 wickets and his economy in below 5, that is gold and that is probably what RCB would have wanted, a wicket taker with the ball other than Yuzi Chahal. So they look settled in their lineup and their goals too this season.
If KXIP have lost games they should have won, RCB have, this time, opted for the less scenic route to the playoffs. They are not there by any means and could face an anxious final week if they relinquish control right now.
