On the other hand, for Shane Watson, the major dilemma lies in picking a player in the one down spot. Three overseas players, AB de Villiers, Travis Head and Billy Stanlake are competing for this spot, however, considering the recent form, de Villiers has a slight upper edge over others in finding his position in the playing eleven.

All eyes on Chris Gayle

As Bangalore and Punjab lock horns on Monday, all the eyes will be on the Chris Gayle, one of the most destructive batsmen in modern cricket. The Caribbean has scored 797 runs against Kings XI Punjab alone in his IPL career, the most by any batsman against a single team in the history of Indian Premier League. Gayle has also scored two centuries against Punjab, and holds a strike rate above 175 against them.

Chris Gayle has scored a whopping 97 runs against the Kings XI which is the most by any player against a team in the IPL

Both teams have played 18 matches, Kings XI have won ten and lost eight. Last season, the RCB won both matches, in a rain-shortened match in Bengaluru, and by one run in a nail-biter in Mohali.

Pitch and weather updates

The curator at the Holkar Stadium has guaranteed that the pitch is flat and a perfect paradise for batsmen.
