What to expect:
The pitch though is expected to be good for batsmen as usual, with or without the other night’s spongy bounce. It did sport a green-look as the groundsmen opened it up for a brief bit, but grass or no grass, you can trust this Chinnaswamy wicket with your life to produce runs.
Royal Challengers Bangalore(RCB):
Henrich Klaasen may have been put through a rigorous batting session on the eve of the match, but the prep’s likely to only be as a cover for the soon-departing Moeen Ali. It’s their death bowling though that’s been the real worry though, and that’s where the real musical chairs has been. Not that this gives much of a hint, but Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav and Mohammad Siraj were the first to hit the bowling nets with Yuzvendra Chahal and Ashish Nehra keeping a close tab on the proceedings.
Also given the trend of RCB backing their recently-smashed pacer for one more game before eventually dropping him, Umesh, the latest victim, should hope for the vogue to last another game. Akshdeep Nath too batted for nearly an hour, signalling the management’s intent.
Parthiv Patel (wk), Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers, Akshdeep Nath, Moeen Ali, Marcus Stoinis, Pawan Negi, Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Dale Steyn, Yuzvendra Chahal
Kings XI Punjab(KXIP):
With questions still hanging around Mujeeb Ur Rahman – who was seen indulging in some gentle throwing exercise with the physio and then loitering around as the rest of his side slogged it out there in the middle – the Chinnaswamy wouldn’t be the worst place to stay injured just a little longer. Also, with Murugan Ashwin having done decently in the last match, it could be Harpreet Brar – who again clearly did no harm to himself – who might have to face the axe in case the think-tank realizes batting Sam Curran at number six is easily a number too high.
