Hello and welcome to India.com‘s live coverage of Kings XI Punjab vs Royal Challengers Bangalore of the Indian Premier League 2017 match eight.
This is RCB’s third match while Punjab are playing their second match of this season’s IPL.
Bangalore lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad by 35 runs in their first match on 5th April.
Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Delhi Daredevils by 15 runs on their second match.
Punjab beat Rising Pune Supergiant by six wickets on Saturday in their first match.
With Virat Kohli out due to shoulder injury, all eyes will be on AB de Villiers, who could make a comeback. The right-hander missed both RCB’s games and there is a possibility that the South African star will feature in the playing XI.
However, it remains to be seen whether ABD will lead RCB or not.
The momentum here lies with Punjab after an impressive 6-wicket victory over Pune on Saturday. Skipper Glenn Maxwell will look to keep his winning run intact.
