Head-to-Head record:

Played: 28 |Punjab Kings: 15 | Royal Challengers Bangalore: 13 | No Result: 0

Pitch report:

Since it’s an evening fixture, the dew will play its part; hence bowling first after winning the toss will be an ideal call. The pitch will provide equal assistance to both batters and bowlers, but the track will improve as the game progresses.

So, chasing would be less challenging than setting up a target.

Punjab Kings: Mayank Agarwal (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Prabhsimran Singh (wk), Shahrukh Khan, Odean Smith, Rishi Dhawan/Benny Howell, Harpreet Brar, Arshdeep Singh, Rahul Chahar, Sandeep Sharma

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Faf du Plessis (c), Virat Kohli, Mahipal Lomror, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Sherfane Rutherford, Shahbaz Ahmed, Wanindu Hasaranga, David Willey, Harshal Patel, Shahbaz Ahmed/Siddharth Kaul, Mohammad Siraj

Match Prediction:

Case 1:

  • PBKS wins the toss and bowls first
  • Powerplay score: 45-55

Case 2:

  • RCB wins the toss and bowls first
