Update Chris Gayle set for return against former side as KXIP meet RCB

The Royal Challengers Bangalore are flying high this season as they maintain a strong position in the IPL 2020 table after the first half of the tournament. With five wins in seven games, the RCB are currently third and have a chance to equal the first-placed Delhi Capitals tonight, when the side takes on the Kings XI Punjab.

One of the most promising sides of the tournament, KXIP's campaign derailed rather quickly and only a miracle can bring them back in the hunt for a playoff spot in the tournament. Despite some terrific individual performances, the KXIP lie at the bottom of the table with only one win in seven games.

But KXIP can take confidence from the fact their only win in the tournament has come against RCB, who look a much more potent squad since their last meeting on September 24.

Though the Sharjah wicket has been slowing gradually, the smaller ground dimensions are ideal for someone like Gayle to go on a six-hitting spree.

However, it certainly won't be easy for the 41-year-old to get going from ball one, having not played earlier in the competition. He would have played the last two games but could not due to food poisoning. Having recovered fully, it will be interesting to see who he replaces in the side.
