KXIP have lost both the matches they have played yet far and on the other side RPS have won one match and lost one in their two matches played.
Kings XI Punjab vs Rising Pune Supergiants will be played at Mohali.
The RPS batting has depth with Faf du Plessis, Ajinkya Rahane, Kevin Pietersen and M.S. Dhoni. Dhoni might opt for Albie Morkel over Mitchell Marsh. Morkel can be a handy batsman lower down the order.
Kings XI Punjab are a strong batting outfit with Murali Vijay and Manan Vohra at the top followed by some power-hitters like David Miller, Glenn Maxwell, Shaun Marsh and Saha.
