Chris Gayle has scored 427 runs in 8 matches against KXIP

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will host Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in match 40 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

KXIP team is in deep trouble and that reflects in the league table too where they lie last with just two wins from 9 games they played. And all that caused problems to Punjab is their batting line-up where from their opener to middle-order batsmen failed miserably.

RCB on the hand have performed decently well except their previous game where they got all out at paltry 124 runs while chasing Super Kings’ set target of 149.They are fifth in the table with 9 points from 9 games and will jump to the third position if they successfully defeat their visitors.

Head-to-head both the teams have met 14 times of which KXIP have won 9 and RCB 5. But these numbers doesn’t make KXIP favourite today because of their current form and RCB will look to capitalise on that only.

Here are all the details:

Venue: M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru

Date: May 6, 2015, 8:00 PM Indian Standard Time (IST)

Previous meeting: KXIP won by 32 runs at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru
