On the centenary of the Jallianwala tragedy, Indian Premier League teams Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore paid homage to those who lost their lives in the massacre. A two-minute silence was observed by team members of Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore. A massacre took place in Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar on Baisakhi in April 1919 when troops of the British Indian Army under the command of Colonel Dyer opened fire on a crowd of people holding a pro-independence meeting, leaving hundreds of people dead and scores injured.
RCB made one change to their side as Umesh Yadav replaced Tim Southee. Kings XI made two changes as Andrew Tye came in place of Hardus Viljoen while Mayank Agarwal, who missed the last match due to a finger injury, also came back and M Ashwin replaced Ankit Rajpoot, who is also nursing an injury.
