Live Cricket Score: KXIP vs RCB
On the opposite, nothing is working out for Royal Challengers Banglore. In six encounters they have faced six defeats and are almost out of contention. They will be desperate for their first win and are standing in a must-win situation. Bangalore has been the most inconsistent side of this season with both their batting and bowling faltering on many occasions. The side has signed South Africa veteran Dale Steyn as a replacement for Nathan Coulter Nile and will be discussed upon the perfect combination.
