TEAM NEWS, SQUADS, PREDICTED XIs

KXIP SQUAD: Glenn Maxwell (c), David Miller, Manan Vohra, Shaun Marsh, Armaan Jaffer, Hashim Amla, Eoin Morgan, Martin Guptill, Rinku Singh, Axar Patel, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Marcus Stoinis, Darren Sammy, Rahul Tewatia, Wriddhiman Saha, Nikhil Naik, Anureet Singh, Sandeep Sharma, Mohit Sharma, KC Cariappa, Matt Henry, T Natarajan, Varun Aaron, Pardeep Sahu, Swapnil Singh, Ishant Sharma

Kings XI were superb in their first match, chasing down Rising Pune Supergiant in commanding fashion and with near enough the entire team contributing.

It means they are unlikely to make any changes to their starting XI but they do have a healthy amount of options to call upon.

Eoin Morgan, Darren Sammy, Martin Guptill and Matt Henry are all attractive overseas options, while Varun Aaron was a standout absentee in that opener.

PREDICTED KXIP XI: Amla, Vohra, Saha, Patel, Maxwell (c), Miller, Stoinis, Swapnil, Sharma, Sandeep, Natarajan

RCB SQUAD: Virat Kohli (c), Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers, Shane Watson, Yuzvendra Chahal, Harshal Patel, Mandeep Singh, Adam Milne, Sarfaraz Khan, Sreenath Aravind, Kedar Jadhav, Stuart Binny, Samuel Badree, Travis Head, Sachin Baby, Iqbal Abdullah, Avesh Khan, Tabraiz Shamsi, Pawan Negi, Tymal Mills, Aniket Choudhary, Praveen Dubey, Billy Stanlake

RCB bounced back from opening day defeat to Sunrisers Hyderabad with victory last time out, some much needed momentum coming in downing Delhi Daredevils.

Shane Watson took the reins for that one and hinted at the end of the game that absent captain Virat Kohli and his deputy AB de Villiers could well return this time out, albeit with tongue firmly in cheek.

De Villiers, however, looks set to return having said he is now back to near full fitness and in contention for selection on the eve of the match.

Their bowlers were superb last time out but Stanlake could make way if De Villiers is fit with Watson’s all-round ability giving him the edge and Mills unlikely to be dropped.

PREDICTED RCB XI: Gayle, De Villiers (c), Mandeep, Jadhav, Watson, Binny, Vinod, Negi, Abdulla, Chahal, Mills
