On the other hand, Punjab team comprise of three Karnataka players in their squad including KL Rahul, Karun Nair, and Mayank Agarwal. But as a result their middle order seems to lack experience with the likes of Sarfaraz Khan and Mandeep Singh left with providing a strong finish to the innings. Then Umesh Yadav came in to bowl the fourth over. The home side, which will turn out in green on the occasion (an annual ritual), could be tempted to field an extra spinner although Kohli has spoken about his preference for giving only five bowlers total responsibility. 9 runs conceded by the Indian pacer. Against Punjab, Virat Kohli waited till after the Power Play to introduce Washington Sundar and Yuzvendra Chahal, who stifled the middle order.

Bangalore's AB de Villiers in full flow against Punjab at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore yesterday. Once again, they would be relying on Umesh Yadav who has bowled with hostility and control in the opening two games and has accounted for some big names already.

What do you do? Towler said the planned museum was "not really going to be competing with Alton Towers" - a popular theme park.
Whether he gets the nod to feature in the playing XI remains to be seen but Bengaluru could be set for a "Gayle-storm" if the left-hander is given the go ahead.
Aaron Finch, who was unavailable for the last match, also may get a chance. Punjab lost their last wicket as Mujib ur Rahim Rahman could not even open the account. RCB has a great loss in this first match against KKR which is their home game.
RCB captain Virat Kohli and KXIP captain Ravichandran Ashwin. I think 170 would have been par, the pitch is slightly better than past year. On Friday he looked in the same devastating form when he reached 47 from 30 balls with four sixes and two fours. A repeat of his performance tonight could spell trouble for the Royal Challengers. So my aim was to bowl on a good length and at the stumps. Their poor record at Benglaluru will be in focus as they play in front of their home fans this season.
