"The stars of Ashwin are indicating a clear picture that KXIP is going to win this game against RCB", he said.

Royal Challengers Bangalore head coach Daniel Vettori said his team was pretty well equipped to handle Kings XI Punjab's Chris Gayle's explosive batting because they were aware of his strengths."We probably won't anticipate playing against Chris tomorrow".

While the flamboyant Virat Kohli-led Bangalore bolstered by power hitting batsmen AB de Villiers, Brendon McCullum will look to seal the first victory in the lucrative season.

The match 8 of Indian Premier League 2018 is between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kings XI Punjab.

McCullum reached a milestone in completing 9,000 T20 runs in the last match and that should boost his confidence. But a freakish over from Nitish Rana had de Villiers and Kohli falling off consecutive balls and Royal Challengers' inexperienced middle order was forced to play a steadying job.

Kohli could depend on Umesh Yadav and Woakes to deliver the goods again as they shared five wickets between them.

This will be the 8th match of IPL T20 and will be played at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. However, the problem lies for RCB in the spin department as the duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sunder gave a below par performance in the opening game, scalping only 1 wicket and giving away 77 runs in 56 balls.

KL Rahul, who is a local, smashed the fastest-ever fifty in IPL history. The Kings XI will hope to repeat their winning streak defeating Delhi Daredevils in their previous match.

Rahul had smashed six boundaries and four sixes in his 16-ball-51. Agarwal was caught out and Yuvraj Singh was bowled out. The only exception was Delhi Daredevils, who also opted to bowl first against Rajasthan Royals but fell short in a hard chase after rain in Jaipur left them facing a very truncated innings. But if he does, if any team knows how good he is that is RCB and what he has done for the team for a number of years. But two teams played on it and the other team won more often than not.
