Kings XI Punjab will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in their second match of IPL 2020 in Dubai. KXIP lost their first match to the Delhi Capitals in a dramatic contest, which was decided by a super over. RCB, on the other hand, performed quite well, beating Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Here is the estimated XI of KXIP for RCB match: –

Chris Gayle – The West Indies talisman was not picked in the first match against DC, but he has high chances to return to the KXIP playing XI against the old RCB. You can’t keep Gayle away from XI for two T20s, can you?
Mayank Agarwal – He was the lone warrior for KXIP with his blistering 89-run knock. But he will be disappointed for not being able to finish the match. Aggarwal will once again be one of the main bases of KXIP in batting.

KL Rahul – The new captain has a lot on his plate. He is the captain, wicket-keeper and leading batsman of the team, which opens the batting. He got off to a great start against DC but could not capitalize. If Gayle plays, it would not be wrong for Rahul to bat at number 3, which he has done many times while playing for India.
Karun Nair – Another main stage in Karnataka. He will be disappointed with the shot he played against DC the other night but he is a quality player and expects a strong comeback against JNB.

Glenn Maxwell – A match winner in the shortest format of Australian sport. He did not make it to the last game, but did not count so soon. He may well kick off the game against RCB on Thursday.
Jimmy Neesham – New Zealand all-rounder should replace Chris Jordan of England who struggled with the ball. Although Neesham may be an easy choice in the middle overs with his cutters and bouncers, his batting in the end can ensure the middle order of the KXIP.
Sarfaraz Khan – He has a home season and can do a great job in the middle order. Sarfaraz also played Danadan shot after performing well against DC.
K Gautham – Gautham is an easy cricketer. He gives you 3-4 overs of off-spin and can use the long handle to the end. He is sure to hold his place in the side.
Mohammed Shami – One of India’s best fast bowlers, Shami will be eager to go after producing his best IPL performance against DC on the second night. They are the biggest threat to the likes of Virat Kohli and Aaron Finch.
Ravi Bishnoi – The Indian under-19 leg-spinner was out for 1 in his IPL debut with 22 and troubled Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant with his googly. He will be up against the likes of Kohli and de Villiers, who will test him as a bowler at the highest level.
Sheldon Cottrell – The powerful West Indian left arm seamer was very influential. He took two wickets for 24 runs in the first match and the same will happen against RCB.
