Royal Challengers Bangalore face a tough test in their latest IPL fixture of 2014 as they take on current leaders Kings XI Punjab at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.
This should be a battle of the batsmen in Bangalore as RCB are said to have the best top order in the tournament, whilst Kings XI’s big hitters are in the best form.
Australian Glenn Maxwell has been a revelation in IPL 7 and has an impressive 435 runs from seven matches so far.
Maxwell has great support at the crease from the likes of David Miller, Virender Sehwag and captain George Bailey and Royal Challengers’ in form bowlers Varun Aaron and Mitchell Starc will be greatly tested.
For the hosts they will be looking towards the all-time highest run scorer in this competition Chris Gayle, who’s early season so far has been hampered by injury.
AB de Villers is also a danger man, but the franchise will want to see more from skipper Virat Kohli and 2014’s most expensive player Yuvraj Singh.
