As KXIP defeated RCB by 97 runs in the previous match, Kohli led side would be aiming to avenge that defeat.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have won five of their seven matches and lost just two. They are third in the points table and have won their previous two matches. They will try to maintain their winning momentum in the match against Kings XI Punjab on Thursday.
