Bengaluru were found out on their trip to Chennai, with their batting unstuck against the spin strengths of the Super Kings. Punjab had a good start to the campaign and will hope to keep winning. I am backing this match to produce an away winner.

  • Punjab Kings have hit the most match 6s in 9 of their last 11 matches against Bengaluru (IPL)
  • Punjab Kings have won 5 of their last 7 matches against Bengaluru (IPL)
  • Royal Challengers Bengaluru have lost 3 of their last 4 matches at this venue (IPL)

Head to Head


RCB has played the Punjab Kings in 31 matches in the IPL competitions so far, with 14 wins for Bengaluru and 17 for Punjab. Recent encounters saw Punjab have their way with five wins out of the last seven.

Last season saw the Royal Challengers win by 24 runs at the Mohali Stadium, with Faf du Plessis (84) and Mohammed Siraj (4 for 21) starring for Bengaluru.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru Form


Bengaluru started their season with a six-wicket loss to Chennai on the opening night of the tournament. It was a result that put focus on their top-order inadequacies against spin.

A score of 173 for 6 was eventually 15 runs short, but they were able to score at least that, thanks to Anuj Rawat (48 off 25) and Dinesh Karthik (38 off 26).

The bowlers couldn’t do much and there was no penetration from the main bowlers. Cameron Green finished with two late wickets, but it just delayed the inevitable.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru Team News


Bengaluru may be tempted to have a look at Lockie Ferguson in place of Alzarri Joseph. It’s too early to change the batting order, although Rajat Patidar may feel the heat.

Punjab Kings Form


The Punjab Kings started their season in fine fashion with a four-wicket win against the Delhi Capitals at their new home stadium in Mullanpur.

Arshdeep Singh led their bowling with 2 for 28 as the Kings restricted the Capitals to 174 for 9. The chase looked steep as they kept losing wickets, but Sam Curran played a match-winning knock of 63 off 47 balls.

The English all-rounder was supported well by his countrymate Liam Livingstone (38* off 21) as they overhauled the target with four balls to spare.

Shashank Singh looked out of touch for the Kings, who may look at someone like Rishi Dhawan to bolster their all-round stocks.
