RCB would settle for nothing less than a win which will not only enable them get past fourth-place Rajasthan Royals but also give a boost to their chances of progressing to the play-off stage.

RCB is presently lying at the fifth spot with 13 points from 11 games, while Kings XI are out of play-off reckoning with just four points 12 matches.

Having thrashed Kings XI by a huge 138-run margin in their previous meeting in Bangalore, RCB would definitely fancy their chances against the struggling hosts.

A star-studded RCB have strong a batting line up in the form of dangerous Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers and skipper Virat Kohli.
