Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) will hope for a much-improved show as they face Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the IPL 2020 fixture at the Dubai International Cricket stadium on Thursday.

IPL 2020 Match 6: Kings XI Punjab vs Royal Challengers Bangalore: Match Prediction
RCB will have an upper hand against KXIP. The Virat Kohli-led side, over the years, have struggled as they did not have the bowling to support their star-studded batting line-up. However, the scenario on slow pitches in UAE, has turned out to be different.
RCB will bank on youngster Devdutt Padikkal and Aaron Finch to get them off to a good start. Kohli will then step in to add to the tempo of the match with AB de Villiers to follow. The big positive of RCB in the previous match was Yuzvendra Chahal. The wrist-spinner will again look to weave his magic by using the conditions to the benefit of his team.
KXIP will look to give competition to RCB. KL Rahul will want his batting order to fire after a failed show in the previous match. He might also make significant changes in the line-up to help his side clinch their first victory of the IPL 2020.
