After getting a moral boost with a win over Delhi Daredevils on Saturday, Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore will look to win all of their remaining three games of the tournament to keep their hopes alive of making in to the play-offs. Other teams will be wary of a team with such mindset.

Both the teams are overtly dependant on their batting with Kohli and De Villiers holding forte for RCB while KXIP look up to KL Rahul and Chris Gayle for inspirational performances. They play Kohli & boys today. The bowlers wreak havoc supported by some explosion on part of the Punjab batsmen.

RCB won their match against Delhi Daredevils by a five-wicket margin. Punjab's batting mostly relies on openers Lokesh Rahul and Chris Gayle as the duo have accumulated 537 and 332 runs respectively.

The hitter from West Indies has been hitting the ball hard and far amassing fast runs in the process. He has been hitting the ball well, and if he can sustain it, he will trouble the Punjab bowlers. Gayle followed suit with a similar stroke. In the next over, Mohammed Siraj dug one in outside off and coaxed an outside edge from Karun Nair to leave Kings XI at 41 for 3 in the sixth over.

Yuzvendra Chahal yorked Marcus Stoinis and shattered his stumps.

In the ninth over, Colin de Grandhomme got the better of Mayank Agarwal (2) to leave the hosts in all sorts of trouble. Moeen Ali removes Finch for 26 runs. Ashwin Run Out for a duck!

RCB have been the perennial under-achievers of the competition, failing to go all the way despite reaching the final thrice.

The target was expected to be nothing, but a cakewalk.

While Punjab slumped to their third successive loss, Bangalore improved upon their net run rate by sealing the victory in 8.1 overs.

"One big partnership usually does the trick in T20s and the way myself and AB (De Villiers) bat, the opposition knows what can happen". Both these men have been in decent form and wanted to trace the target at the earliest and they didn't let an opportunity go in the powerplay.

The victory puts RCB in the race to top-four finish. Hence, he brought himself into the attack.

The pair cautiously put nine runs for Bangalore in the first over. 9:08 pm: KXIP 80/8 after 13 overs Andrew Tye, right handed bat, comes to the crease. It was a typical de Villiers innings, with runs coming around the park as he took apart each bowler.

In a fairly straightforward chase, Parthiv began with a flurry of boundaries, while Kohli took on Ankit Rajput, nonchalantly clubbing the pacer for a six over cow corner, before hammering two fours to collect 16 runs in the over. So, Chennai Super Kings won by 6 wickets against RCB.

Ravichandran Ashwin and Virat Kohli, the two captains. Although they still have their destiny in their own hands, they need to start winning soon.
