Kohli & Co are still searching for their first victory of this campaign

We are into the fourth week of the 2019 Indian Premier League, and the Kings XI Punjab are set to host the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 28th fixture of this season's IPL on Saturday. Kings XI Punjab will look to bring their campaign back on track with a win, while the visitors are still searching for their first victory of this season. An intriguing contest is on the cards when these two giants will battle it out at Mohali tomorrow.

Kings XI Punjab are having a topsy-turvy tournament so far as they have won four games and lost three. They are currently fourth in the table with eight points. In their last game, KXIP lost a thrilling contest against the Mumbai Indians, with Kieron Pollard’s heroics turning out to be the decisive factor. The hosts would be eyeing to return to winning ways when they host the bottom-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore.

RCB are having a season to forget, having lost all their six games, and captain Virat Kohli must be disappointed both with his performance and his team’s poor run in the tournament. Despite having match-winners like Kohli, AB de Villiers and Marcus Stoinis in their ranks, RCB lack depth in their team, be it in batting or bowling or even in the fielding department. However, the visitors would be hoping to land a counterpunch heading into another must-win fixture.
