Kings XI Punjab vs Royal Challengers Bangalore
The only thing the Kings XI Punjab have in their favour is the old adage that once you're at rock bottom, the only way to go is up. Of course, that doesn't means they''ll begin their rise up the log by a stroke of magic but with a semi-final spot probably too far out of their reach, they can focus on regaining pride and getting combinations right in their next seven matches.The recipe of their disaster is well documented, so it's the formula for their success that most are interested in. Let's begin with the batting. Shaun Marsh will definitely be retained, after his 57 from 47 balls in the previous match, but that means it's likely that stand in captain Mahela Jayawardene will be benched. The Sri Lankan didn't move himself to the top of the order in the previous game, and while his 102 runs are the most out of him, Yuvraj Singh (101) and Kumar Sangakkara (91), the other two are more likely to keep their places because of their bowling and keeping and captaincy respectively.
