Read this article for IPL match 28- KXIP vs RCB game analysis, KXIP vs RCB Dream 11 team prediction, match summary, KXIP vs RCB probable XI and more.

Of late, everyone seems to be keeping up with the latest sporting tournament, the IPL and this is your one stop for all the info on the upcoming match and the top picks for the IPL fantasy league.

With their backs firmly to the wall, out-of-sorts Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will take on Kings XI Punjab in a must-win Indian Premier League (IPL) clash at the IS Bindra Stadium here on Saturday. RCB have lost six matches on the trot, finding themselves rooted to the bottom of the eight-team table.

KXIP vs RCB: RCB take on Kings XI in must win encounter

Kohli, who was recently named the Leading Cricketer of the Year for the third successive time by Wisden Almanack, looked distraught and on Saturday will know that they can only reverse their fortunes by winning all their remaining eight matches from Saturday onwards. RCB have been inconsistent with both their bowling and batting faltering on many occasions.

While Kohli and AB de Villiers have shown glimpses of their brilliance, the team's dependence on the pair and poor bowling displays have let them down. Besides Yuzvendra Chahal, no other bowler has looked the part for the Bengaluru based side.

Coming to the home side, Punjab failed to defend 197 against Mumbai Indians in their last match with Kieron Pollard's knock of a 31-ball 83 blowing them away. But barring that piece of individual brilliance to which few teams have an answer, R Ashwin's wards have looked in great shape and the India Test offie has led from the front. Though Chris Gayle is injured and might not be playing, the team still has a great chance of winning the game against the soft target that is RCB. They have won four matches out of seven but they have maintained dominance at home.

KXIP vs RCB: Dream 11 Top 6 Picks

KXIP, the home team has a lot of batting fire power and you should definitely opt for two of their batsmen, namely- David Miller and Lokesh Rahul, both of whom have led their team to victory on more than one count. They have performed well over the past few games and we expect big things from them this time too. From the bowling side, pick captain of the team, Ravichandran Ashwin, who is a leading wicket taker.

From RCB you should obviously pick the two top batsmen, Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers. Against the Delhi Capitals, they are expected to showcase their talents. Another player from the team that you should pick is Yuzvendra Chahal. From the team, these are the only few players who are actually performing well and still give us a glimmer of hope for Kohli's team.

Parents of students in Jaipur rejoice as the Rajasthan govt orders to waive off fees by 30-40%

The concerned department has also submitted a report with SOP guidelines to the Chief Minister's Office, requesting suggestions on reopening of schools from November 2.

Bringing a sigh of relief amidst the parents in the state amidst this ongoing pandemic, the Rajasthan government has ordered the CBSE affiliated private schools to waive off their tuition fees by 30% for class 9 to 12. Along with it, the schools which are affiliated with the state board, have to slash their fees by 40%, for the same grades.

Along side this, the Progressive Association School of Rajasthan, which filed a plea against the High Court's decision ordering 30% deduction in school tuition fee, was not in support of this conclusion. "This decision is not right, it is discriminatory. If it is implemented, we will go against it to the Supreme Court. How will the schools be able to pay salaries to teachers and staff if fees are slashed by 30 and 40 per cent?"
