Royal Challengers Bangalore are all set to take on the Punjab Kings in their next encounter at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. The Faf du Plessis-led side has won its last two games comfortably and is sitting pretty at the fourth position in the IPL 2022 points table. With seven wins in 12 games, RCB will qualify if they can win their remaining two games and they will be looking to push their chances with a win in the upcoming fixture.

On the other hand, Punjab Kings are coming off a loss against the Rajasthan Royals in their previous game and they will need to pull their socks up soon with the playoff stages approaching. With five wins in 11 games, the Mayank Agarwal-led side is placed at the eighth position in the points table and they will have to get their net run rate up as well.

Pitch Report

The Brabourne Stadium has been pretty good for batting especially in the last few games and the bowlers have to ensure that they stick to their lines and lengths to keep the scoreboard under control. The captain that wins the toss is likely to bowl first despite the previous game ending up in favour of the team batting first.

Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter of the Match

Faf du Plessis:

Faf du Plessis played a captain’s knock in the previous game by leading from the front with an unbeaten 73 runs and helped his side reach a big total on the board. He has been fairly inconsistent this season and this was a much-needed knock from him with the playoffs nearing. He will be looking to continue his good form from the previous game.

Probable best bowler of the Match

Harshal Patel:

Harshal Patel could not pick up many wickets in the previous game but yet again he was very good with his yorkers and variations. The right-arm seamer was economical throughout his spell and finished with 1 for 20 in his 3.2 overs. He will be key to the success of the RCB franchise in the coming days as well.
