IPL 2019: RCB register first win, defeat KXIP by 8 wickets

IPL 2019: RCB register first win, defeat KXIP by 8 wickets

De Villiers also spoke about his former South African teammate Dale Steyn who has joined the RCB ranks after Nathan Coulter-Nile's participation in the IPL was curtailed due to global commitments and personal reasons.

Virat Kohli has had a mixed bag of fortunes in this IPL as though he has got a couple of half-centuries his RCB has all the six matches they have played and one even after scoring a formidable 205/3 were Russeled against KKR.

Nearly everything fell in place for Royal Challengers in Mohali. In reply, the Royal Challengers started well with Virat Kohli and Parthiv Patel adding 43 runs for the first wicket. Since then, Kohli combined with AB de Villiers to shoulder the innings on the line of victory.

Dale Steyn would be looking forward to join the team in the IPL as it would benefit him financially. As always, Yuzvendra Chahal was RCB's standout bowler. Against Delhi Capitals, barring Kohli's 33-ball 41 and Moeen Ali's 18-ball 32 cameo, RCB's ordinary batting display took the side to a modest 149/8, a target which was easily achieved by DC. We need to string some wins (together). "That's the whole story of RCB this season", Kohli had said after the match. "It hasn't happened so far, and that's the reality".

Royal Challengers Bangalore achieved in the last match what they had been after for a long time. Couple of nights ago the Punjab franchise lost from a winning position against the Mumbai Indians, where Kieron Pollard bludgeoned 83 off 31 balls dishing out some severe beating for Kings XI bowlers.

Invited to bat, dashing West Indies opener Chris Gayle (99) carried his bat through with an unbeaten 99, studded with five sixes and as many as 10 hits to the fence to single-handedly anchor Punjab to 173 for four. So is it Steyn to the rescue of Kohli and his men remains to be seen.

"Main thing is every team has got world class players and they have got someone like Chris Gayle, who is arguably the best T20 player", he said.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.
