RCB vs PBKS Possible Top Performers
Probable Best Batter of the Match: Faf du Plessis
Faf du Plessis is looking in great touch with the bat this season. He scored a brilliant knock of 73 runs in the previous match and he also has a good record against Punjab Kings.
The RCB’s skipper has so far scored 398 runs from 12 games with a strike rate of 132.7 and he is currently the third leading run-scorer of this edition of IPL. Earlier this season, Faf du Plessis smashed an 88-run knock against Punjab Kings and he is expected to shine once again and score a big knock for his side against the same opposition.
Probable Best Bowler of the Match: Wanindu Hasaranga
The Sri Lankan spinner Wanindu Hasaranga was exceptional in the previous match for RCB. He claimed an outstanding 5-wicket haul that helped his side to beat the Sunrisers Hyderabad by a big margin of 67 runs. Hasaranga is currently the second most leading wicket-taker of this season with 21 scalps in just 12 games. He will be the key bowler for RCB against Punjab Kings on Friday.
RCB vs PBKS Who Will Win
Punjab Kings need to win all their remaining matches to stay alive in this competition. They lost their previous game and their confidence will be a bit low but a good team effort is required from them to turn the tables. They have defeated RCB this season but the conditions are very different now. The top-order needs to step up and get their side over the line because RCB will come hard against them.
Meanwhile, Royal Challengers Bangalore have managed to win 7 games without playing their best cricket which is quite alarming for the other teams. Their bowling attack is looking good with the likes of Wanindu Hasaranga and Josh Hazelwood but the only problem for Royal Challengers Bangalore is the batting form of Virat Kohli who has managed to score only one fifty this season. Once Virat Kohli will start scoring runs, RCB will be unstoppable and they might win their maiden IPL trophy.
The team combination of Bangalore is also quite better than Punjab Kings.
Hence, we predict that RCB will beat PBKS in match 60 of this season.
