IPL 2019: Dale Steyn to Replace Nathan Coulter-Nile in RCB Camp

IPL 2019: Dale Steyn to Replace Nathan Coulter-Nile in RCB Camp

The Sportsrush presents before you the Head-to-Head statistics for 28th match of IPL 2019.

RCB is the only team that is yet to win even a single match as they lost six matches in a row in the ongoing Indian Premier League 2019.

Numerous Indian publications, including the Times of India, are speculating that Steyn has been signed by the struggling Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Australian fast bowling allrounder Nathan Coulter-Nile who did not get any match is set to return home and fans are claiming on social media that Steyn will be his replacement. The RCB bowlers had allowed Sunrisers Hyderabad to post a mammoth 232 with centuries from Jonny Bairstow and David Warner before they were skittled out for 113 to lose the match by a massive 118 runs. Against Delhi Capitals, barring Kohli's 33-ball 41 and Moeen Ali's 18-ball 32 cameo, RCB's ordinary batting display took the side to a modest 149/8, a target which was easily achieved by DC. "That's the whole story of RCB this season", Kohli had said after the match. "It hasn't happened so far, and that's the reality".

Master blaster Chris Gayle became only the second player in Indian Premier League (IPL) history to be stranded on 99 as his Kings XI Punjab side fell to an eight-wicket defeat after fine knocks from Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.
