Hello and welcome to the score updates from the VIVO IPL 2018 contest between RCB and KXIP from the M.Chinaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
While the flamboyant Virat Kohli-led Bangalore bolstered by power hitting batsmen AB de Villiers, Brendon McCullum will look to seal the first victory in the lucrative season. Punjab led by experienced spinner Ravichandran Ashwin will look to add to their victory from the previous side.
However, Punjab looks to be more of a balanced side. Bengaluru will aim that their swashbuckling top order batsmen can take them to a winning total.
