With RCB having just two games left, a win over PBKS will put them in the fray for the playoffs. Bangalore’s top-order has been a concern although skipper Faf du Plessis and Rajat Patidar have made contributions. Virat Kohli‘s form though continues to be in a tailspin, having aggregated only 216 runs at a strike rate of 111.34.

However, the Royal Challengers have a strong suit in their bowling with Josh Hazlewood leading the pack. Wanindu Hasaranga continues to flummox opponents with his lethal googly and is the second-highest wicket-taker this season. If there is a small leakage that needs to be plugged into the bowling department, it has to be Mohammed Siraj’s lack of form.

Punjab Kings, on the other hand, have struggled due to inconsistency, a persistent problem that has been in the last few years. Skipper Mayank Agarwal couldn’t live by example in the batting order. On the other hand, Liam Livingstone and Jitesh Sharma have found the right gears but that has been offset by Shahrukh Khan’s modest form.
