Bangalore are in a do-or-die situation once again as they have to win every match to make sure they are alive in this tournament. They have only managed two wins from their nine matches so far. Virat Kohli’s team did win their previous match but AB de Villiers had missed that outing. He could return if he is declared fit on time while Akshdeep Nath could face the axe from the lineup.
Gear up for a perfect Sunday with two spectacular matches in the Vivo IPL 2019. As the tournament moves to the business end, the contests have become more interesting, much to the delight of the fans.
