Kings XI Punjab head coach Anil Kumble has said that the side is quite confident in the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Kings XI Punjab and RCB will play horns against each other at the Dubai International Stadium today. Punjab had lost their opening match against the Delhi Capitals in the Super Over, but Kumble said that after that loss the entire team gained a lot of positivity.
“You know RCB have very strong batting with Virat, AB and Aaron Finch, as well as experienced youngsters. But we have our plans,” Kumble said in a video posted on Punjab’s official Twitter handle said.
“I think we have the ability to complete it, it depends on the day that plays well. Our preparation has been really good in the last one month and we are very positive after the Delhi Capitals game because What do we have to do and what to do? ” He said what we need to improve. It is on the same basis that we are playing RCB, its T20 tournament, so you just want to be good on a particular day and watch one game at a time.
On the other hand, RCB won by 10 runs against Sunrisers Hyderabad in their opening match.
Kings XI Punjab and RCB have faced each other 24 times in IPL so far and both sides have won 12 matches each. However, Virat Kohli-led RCB have won four of their last five matches against Punjab, with the latter dominating the head.
