While defending champions Chennai Super Kings are well ahead of the chasing pack, as many as four teams are on eight points each in a crowded mid-table.However, two teams Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals have been struggling to gain any sort of momentum. While Rajasthan have two points from their only win over Bangalore, Virat Kohli’s men are yet to open their account in IPL 2019.Can RCB avoid unwanted IPL record?Royal Challengers Bangalore are one more defeat away from creating an unwanted record as they will become the side with the most number of successive defeats at the start of the season. RCB have lost six matches on the trot this season and have equalled Delhi Capitals (Daredevils) record from 2013.Virat Kohli’s men are facing a daunting task of breaching Kings XI Punjab’s fortress. R Ashwin’s men have not lost a single match at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Mohali this season, winning three in three. In fact, Kings XI have stitched a 7-match unbeaten run at the iconic venue over the last three years.Notably, skipper Ashwin sent a warning to opposition teams after Kings XI crushed Sunrisers Hyderabad on Monday when he said the hosts will be hoping to stretch their winning streak at home to 11 at the end of the season.advertisementRoyal Challengers Bangalore though will be hoping for a change in fortunes as they are heading into their seventh match of IPL 2019 after a five-day break. RCB can take confidence from the fact that they had completed a double over Kings XI in IPL 2018. When it comes to head-to-head records, RCB have managed to beat KXIP 10 times in 22 meetings.While KXIP will be keen on maintaining their fine run at home, all eyes will be on Chris Gayle as the big West Indies batsman had suffered a twisted back during their last match against Mumbai Indians. It remains to be seen if the Universe Boss will recover in time to face his former club.RCB will be boosted by the presence of Dale Steyn in the camp after the South African pacer replaced an injured Nathan Coulter-Nile. However, the fast bowling great will not be available for selection in Saturday’s away game.Also Read | Sourav Ganguly on MS Dhoni’s on-field outburst at umpires: Everyone is humanAlso Read | India might select KL Rahul for No.4 in World Cup based on IPL form: Sunil GavaskarAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
