IPL 2020 Match 6- Punjab vs. Bangalore predictions, Fantasy picks, and probable XI
Bangalore and Punjab will be playing the second match of their campaign and are well aware of the conditions in Dubai. Bangalore won their first game and they will be looking to carry the momentum forward and bag their second win.
On the other hand, it was evident that luck was not Punjab's side as they could not make 1 run off 3 balls and the game was carried in the super over where they ended up losing the game against Chennai Super Kings. Here are the predictions, fantasy league picks and probable XI for today's game.
Predicitons and Fantasy league picks
Bangalore have their last four games against Punjab. While it was a rare feat to witness Bangalore winning their opening game, it is still early days and anything can happen.
From their first matches, it is evident that AB de Villiers and Mayank Agarwal are the players who seem to shoulder the responsibility of carrying the team time and time and are the perfect choice for Captain and Vice-captain. Devdutt Padikkal may also prove to be the best economical pick. Lokesh Rahul will also be another player to watch out for.
Bangalore may have won their first game but they win did not come to them easily. Yuzvendra Chahal will be a smart pick as he put a stop to the Baristow blitz and ended up with match-winning figures of 4-0-18-3. Mohammad Shami and Navdeep Saini have also proved to be lethal with the ball. K Gowtham from KXIP is a great all-rounder. With all that being said, RCB with their explosive batting line-up might take this game away.
My XI – AB de Villiers (Captain), Mayank Agarwal (Vice-Captain), Y Chahal, D Padikkal, Mohammed Shami, Navdeep Saini, K Gowtham, Lokesh Rahul, Virat Kohli, Aaron Finch, Sarfaraz Khan
Probable XI for the match
Punjab will be looking to include Chris Gayle in this match in a hope of getting an explosive start.
Probable XI- KL Rahul (C, wk), Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair, Nicholas Pooran/Chris Gayle, Sarfaraz Khan, Glenn Maxwell, Krishnappa Gowtham, Chris Jordan/Sheldon Cottrell, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed Shami
Even though Chris Morris is injured and unavailable for this match, Bangalore will probably not make any changes in their line-up.
Probable XI- Aaron Finch, Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli (C), AB de Villiers, Josh Philippe (wk), Washington Sundar, Shivam Dube, Navdeep Saini, Umesh Yadav, Dale Steyn, Yuzvendra Chahal.
