BLR vs KXIP Dream11 Team Prediction | Player Stats | Dream11 IPL 2020

Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Kings XI Punjab in the 31st Match of Dream11 IPL 2020 at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah. We will provide BLR vs KXIP Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Dream11 Tips.

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

RCB has performed well so far in this season as they are currently at the 3rd position on the points table with 5 wins and 2 losses and a total of 10 points.

The batting unit of the team looks very strong with both the openers Aaron Finch and Devdutt Padikkal looking in good form and the middle order Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers can take the game away from the opposition from any position.

Their lower middle has also got good power hitters like Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, and Chris Morris who can play cameos if required. Bowling was always a concern for RCB but this time things have changed for them and they have found a good balance in their bowling.

Chris Morris and Navdeep Saini are giving a goo start without conceding runs in the powerplay and Washington Sundar has been playing a very crucial role for them by picking up wickets in the power play. 

Yuzvendar Chahal as usual has been bowling well in the middle overs and picking up wickets and the death overs have been looked after by Siraj and Udana.

On the whole, we can say that RCB is looking in a very good rhythm with all its players contributing in every match in one way or the other.

  • Aaron Finch and the young lad Devdutt Padikkal will open for RCB.
  • The middle-order looks good with Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Shivam Dube.
  • All-rounders Washington Sundar, Chris Morris, and Isuru Udana will be crucial in the lower middle order.
  • Isuru Udana, Navdeep Saini, Chris Morris, and Yuzvendra Chahal will form the team’s core bowling attack.

BLR so far in the tournament: W L W W L W W

Kings XI Punjab:

The chance of Kings XI qualifying is looking slim this season as they are currently at the bottom of the points table with 1 win and 6 losses and a total of 2 points.

Nothing has worked well for KXIP except for their top-order. Both KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have been performing well and are the top two contenders for the Orange Cap. Nicholas Pooran has also appeared to be in good touch hitting some big sixes in every match.

The problem for KXIP has been the approach in their games. In some of the games, they had almost won but couldn’t take it over the finishing line due to the approach. In few matches, their bowlers struggled a lot to pick up at least one wicket and in some matches, their middle order failed to score even run a ball.

KXIP has many match-winners on their side but they have all failed to perform as a team and that has cost them most of the games. With the inclusion of Gayle in the next match, we can hope that their middle-order gets strengthed and they can perform more aggressively as a team.

If KXIP wants to qualify for playoffs then they have to start winning every match from here or else there is no chance for them.

  • Skipper KL Rahul and Chris Gayle will open the inning for KXIP.
  • The middle-order will comprise of Mayank Agarwal, N Pooran, Glenn Maxwell and Mandeep Singh.
  • M Ashwin/K Gowtham and Ravi Bishnoi will be the spin attack of the team.
  • Mohammad Shami, Arshdeep Singh, and Chris Jordan are the team’s core bowling attack.
