Preview: Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) will aim to push towards the play-offs with a win over Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter at Indore on Monday.

Opener Gayle and Rahul started the innings by Punjab in the Holkar stadium Gayle felt himself very uncomfortable from the start of the innings.

While Rahul was caught by Colin de Grandhomme at deep square leg, Gayle went out off a top edge caught by Mohammed Siraj at the same position two balls later. This is now the third 10-wicket victory in Bangalore history; no other side has achieved this feat a few times. For reference, other options in this market include Karun Nair at 4/1 plus Aaron Finch and Mayank Agarwal who are both listed at 9/2. Umesh Yadav removes him for a duck!

Dropped! How costly will this prove. While chasing 182, RCB was able to confirm their victory easily by five wickets and that too in 19 overs.

It was the 2nd head to head battle between this two teams in the ongoing season.

Both sides are struggling for form but Matt Harris is expecting Kings XI Punjab to overcome Royal Challengers Bangalore and build towards the next phase of IPL 11. After a lacklustre start to the tournament, the team led by Virat Kohli found themselves in a must-win situation to stay alive in the tournament.

RCB got some breathing space after their five-wicket victory against Delhi Daredevils while KXIP, after a brilliant run at the initial stages, are now struggling with back-to-back defeats.

Punjab win. RCB have been far too patchy this season and look unlikely to defeat a Punjab with a objective. Although they will be high on confidence after the way they defeated the Delhi Daredevils in last match where both Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers batted brilliantly.

In their past two defeats, Punjab lost to Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders. Thanks to Narine's 75, Karthik's 50 and Russell's 31 KKR posted 245 runs on board, which is also the highest in this years IPL.

The victory puts RCB in the race to top-four finish.

The problem area has been skipper Ravichandran Ashwin's inability to get breakthroughs with only six scalps from 11 games at 8.13 runs per over.

KXIP: KL Rahul has been the consistent performer with the bat for the Punjab side.

Virat- The RCB skipper has already shown his intent. It's their last match at the Holkar Stadium, their adopted home, this season. Washington Sundar's inexperience (economy rate of 9.60 with 4 wickets from 7 games) and Pawan Negi's profligacy (economy rate of 12.25 in 2 games) have hurt Kohli and Co's chances.

Chasing a paltry total after the break, RCB finished off the match in 8.1 overs with 10 wickets in hand.

With Star India now acquiring the media rights from Sony Pictures Network India for the upcoming season, the matches will be telecast on various Star Sports channels.
