Punjab have won just four out of 10 games played so far and they will look to win all of their remaining games, while Bangalore look to be overwhelming with seven wins in 11 games.

Kings XI Punjab:

Punjab are once again likely to be without regular skipper Adam Gilchrist. David Hussey is leading the team in the absence of an under-performing Gilchrist, who dropped himself from the team in the last couple of matches.

Punjab is not an opponent who can instil fear in the minds of the opposition. The strength of Punjab’s bowling lies mainly on Praveen and Parvinder Awana, both will need to put their best foot forward to roll off the Bangalore batsmen.

Australian Shaun Marsh along with Mandeep Singh and David Miller can use their batting skills and take on the opposition bowling attack.

Team Kings XI Punjab: Adam Gilchrist (Capt), Mandeep Singh, Luke Pomersbach, David Miller, Manan Vohra, David Hussey, Piyush Chawla, Praveen Kumar, Harmeet Singh, Bhargav Bhatt, Parvinder Awana, Azhar Mahmood, Bipul Sharma, Siddharth Chitnis, Aniket Choudhary, Manpreet Gony, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Shaun Marsh, Dimitri Mascernhas, Nitin Saini, Sandeep Sharma, Rajagopal Sathish, Sunny Singh, Paul Valthaty

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

RCB boasts of skipper Virat Kohli and the big-hitting opener Chris Gayle. Gayle has been phenomenal so far but has shown his weakness and general hesitancy to play against spinners.

Murali Kartik and Sri Lankan Muttiah Muralitharan lead the spin attack for RCB.

Team Royal Challengers Bangalore: Virat Kohli (captain), A B De Villiers, Abhimanyu Mithun, Abhinav Mukund, Andrew McDonald, Arun Karthik, Cheteshwar Pujara, Chris Gayle, Christopher Barnwell, Daniel Christian, Daniel Vettori, Harshal Patel, Jaidev Unadkat, K P Appanna, Karun Nair, Mayank Agarwal, Moises Henriques, Murali Kartik, Muttiah Muralitharan, Pankaj Singh, Prasanth Parameswaran, R Vinay Kumar, Ravi Rampaul, Rudra Pratap Singh, S Aravind, Sandeep Warrier, Saurabh Tiwary, Sheldon Jackson, Sunny Sohal, Syed Mohammad, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Vijay Zol, Zaheer Khan.
