Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will take on Punjab Kings (PBKS) in Match 60 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on Friday.
Both sides played their opening game against each other on March 27, where Punjab managed to defeat Bangalore by five wickets in a high-scoring contest.
With 7 wins out of 12 games, the Challengers are in the top four in team standings. On the other hand, Punjab are positioned at eighth place with only 4 victories in 11 matches.
The track at the Brabourne will offer a good amount of support to seamers.

The dew will have its impact, and captains might look to bowl first after winning the toss.
