IPL Update: First Double Header Of The Season On The Way

The first double header of this season’s IPL is coming up on Sunday. Kolkata Knight Riders will be taking on Royal Challengers Bangalore in Chennai at 3:30 PM. On the other hand, Delhi Capitals will lock horns against Punjab Kings in Mumbai at 7:30 PM.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Vs Kolkata Knight Riders:

Status Of The Teams:

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

Royal Challengers Bangalore are still unbeaten in this tournament. They have won two close contests in Chennai. Now, Virat Kohli and Co will be very much confident ahead of facing Kolkata Knight Riders. Glenn Maxwell has been in superb form and it can well prove to be a decisive factor for Bangalore this season. The credits should also go to the bowling unit of Royal Challengers Bangalore for restricting the opponents.

Probable Starting XI:

Virat Kohli (C), Devdutt Padikkal, Shahbaz Ahmed, Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers (WK), Washington Sundar, Daniel Christian, Kyle Jamieson, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders have lost their previous game against Mumbai Indians after winning a good match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Their batting unit needs to be a bit more responsible in the middle overs as the situation is getting tricky at that point of the innings.

Probable Starting XI:

Nitish Rana, Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (C), Shakib Al Hasan, Dinesh Karthik (WK), Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Harbhajan Singh, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy.

Delhi Capitals Vs Punjab Kings:

Status Of The Teams:

Delhi Capitals:

Delhi Capitals have won the first game against Chennai Super Kings in a convincing manner. However, the close defeat in the previous match against Rajasthan Royals might haunt them. However, they have a balanced squad and the team management might go with the same XI in this match.

Probable Starting XI:

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant (C & WK), Marcus Stoinis, Lalit Yadav, Chris Woakes, R Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Avesh Khan.

Punjab Kings:

Punjab Kings have put up a huge total against Rajasthan Royals in the first match and they have won the match in the last ball. However, their batting unit has collapsed completely against Chennai Super Kings in the previous match. They will be looking to make a strong comeback in this contest.

Probable Starting XI:

Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul (C & WK), Chris Gayle, Deepak Hooda, Nicholas Pooran, Shahrukh Khan, Jhye Richardson, Murugan Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Chris Jordan/Riley Meredith, Arshdeep Singh.
