So how do we split them - RCB have the greater batting strength but if Kohli and De Villiers go early then they are often out of the game while Kings XI's talented and varied bowling attack are underperforming.

Chris Gayle will be keen to make a statement against RCB, the side that let him go after plenty of success with the franchise in the seven years he spent there.

Besides, the Indian pacer, Yuzvendra Chahal (1/6), Colin de Grandhomme (1/8), Moeen Ali (1/13) and Mohammed Siraj (1/17) picked up a wicket each.

Two men with plenty of IPL experience, Michael Lumb, as a player, and Mark Butcher, with a watching brief, join Matt Floyd in the studio.

Umesh could have got RCB a dream start had stumper Parthiv held on to Gayle's nick in the very first over, but the bowler had the last laugh when he dismissed both the openers in the fifth over off similar deliveries. KL Rahul has been phenomenal in the season but clearly has run short of partners on many occasions. Finch and Ashwin put on 37 runs for 6th wicket to keep the scoreboard ticking with some lusty blows. Stoinis was new to the crease and Chahal made a decision to throw in a googly to him.

Skipper Ashwin, Mohit Sharma, Barinder Sran, Ankit Rajpoot and the only player to be retained by KXIP - Axar Patel - have all struggled to create problems for opposing batsmen. The likes of Parthiv Patel and Mandeep Singh for Bangalore, and Karun Nair and Mayank Agarwal for Punjab.

Back-to-back wins for the first time in two seasons has given RCB's quest for a maiden IPL title a fresh lease of life.

Pennington's movement was visibly compromised and Nunes began landing punches and dropped her a second time with a leg kick. Rocky secured a takedown, but otherwise it was more of Nunes picking the challenger apart with leg kicks and combinations.

This was the first-century partnership between Kohli and de Villiers in two seasons. "No negatives to point out in what has been a ideal game for us", Kohli said during the post-match presentation after RCB's thumped Kings XI Punjab by 10 wickets.

Bangalore moved to seventh in the standings after its fourth win, and needs to win its remaining three games to stay in the hunt for the top four. The last game will be interesting if we can get the next one. Meanwhile, KXIP are coming off a comprehensive defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in a high-scoring encounter. The ever dependable and consistent Rahul too will have a point to prove against his "home" side.

It's game over for them.

It's hard to not be a Virat Kohli fan.

Chris Gayle was dropped on zero by wicketkeeper Patel, who couldn't hold onto to the nick despite stretching out to his left.

The match is scheduled to start at 8 P.M. IST on Tuesday, May 14th. We head to Match 48 where Punjab host Bangalore at Holkar Stadium, Indore.

The live coverage of KXIP vs RCB match will be available on Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 1 HD, while Star Sports 1 Hindi and Star Sports Hindi HD will provide the Hindi coverage of the match.
