IPL 2019, the most decorated tournament of cricket is nearly halfway through. Every team has performed to their limits and we have witnessed some rousing cricket action thus far. As we move into the second leg of the tournament, it’s interesting to note the performance of the teams thus far. CSK with six wins from seven games is comfortably placed at the top with KKR securing the second position with 8 points. On close observation, every team apart from CSK has had a roller coaster ride. Even CSK scampered home on a couple of occasions in close encounters. RCB proved to be a disappointment thus far and are looking for a way to turnaround things. Much like the earlier versions of IPL, we have seen some memorable knocks, close encounters, breathtaking catches, spirited bowling performances, and nail-biting finishes.
KXIP VS RCB
Today we are going to witness two teams that are yet to have a title behind their names clash against each other. Yes, we are referring to RCB vs KXIP. An inconsistent KXIP will be looking forward to streamlining their journey with a win against the battered and bruised RCB on their home turf at Mohali. On the other hand, RCB which had a rough journey so far with six straight losses on the trot and suffering the ignominy of encountering six straight losses will be looking to break the shackles off with a win.
