Out-of-sorts Royal Challengers Bangalore will take resurgent Kings XI Punjab at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Friday. The home team is heading into the match on the back of a dismal show so far in the Indian Premier League. However, they will look to dent Punjab's chances of sealing a spot in the play-offs. The match is scheduled to commence at 8pm.

Kings Eleven registered a comprehensive eight-wicket win over Royal Challengers Bangalore in the game played out at Holkar Stadium earlier in the season.
