PBKS Vs RCB Today Match Prediction IPL 2024


In this matchup between two teams with equal Played, Won, and Lost records, neither Punjab Kings nor RCB can afford to lose their eighth game of the season. If they do, the easy calculations will probably show that they can’t finish in the top four this campaign.

However, the winning team will not only be only two points outside of the top four, but they will also have a lot of momentum going into their last two games. There are undoubtedly weaknesses in the defence since none of the clubs in third to sixth place have won their last three games. With a great finish to the season, Punjab Kings or RCB might sneak into the top four.

Teams Preview –

Punjab Kings :

Everyone who glances at Punjab Kings’ roster believes they should be contending for the top spot in the Indian Premier League, but their inconsistency at the bat has cost them so far this season. And if skipper Shikhar Dhawan hadn’t sustained an injury early in the competition—he is once again predicted to miss this game—it may have been a very other story.

The batting lineup without Dhawan is probably going to mostly rely on Jonny Bairstow, Prabhsimaran Singh, and Shashank Singh. The two main wicket-takers in the team are Harshal Patel and Arshdeep Singh, although Rahul Chahar has also improved in recent games and enters this encounter having taken three wickets in his previous outing.

Punjab Kings Playing XI:

Prabhsimran Singh, Jonny Bairstow, Rilee Rossouw, Shashank Singh, Sam Curran (c), Jitesh Sharma (wk), Ashutosh Sharma, Arshdeep Singh, Harshal Patel, Rahul Chahar, Kagiso Rabada

Royal Challengers Bengaluru :

While RCB supporters are thrilled with their team’s comeback in the group stage, it has also been extremely annoying in other aspects. The fact that it has happened so late in the day adds to the sadness.

Is it too late, though? That is the crucial query. The majority of analysts believe that RCB needs three more wins to secure a spot in the top four before the first stage concludes, but that would mean they had won six straight games!

RCB is a formidable club with a potent batting lineup that can score runs at the top and middle. In addition, Mohammed Siraj won Player of the Match for his bowling heroics the last time around.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru Playing XI:

Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis (c), Will Jacks, Glenn Maxwell, Cameron Green, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Swapnil Singh, Karn Sharma, Mohammed Siraj, Vijaykumar Vyshak, Yash Dayal

Pitch & Weather Conditions:

Weather :

There is no danger that play on Thursday night in Dharamsala will be interrupted by rain. The weather report indicates that it will be a clear evening with a reduction in temperature from 27 to 22 degrees throughout the game.

Pitch Report:

Any expectations of a match total of 500+ runs are unrealistic as this is not among the greatest batting wickets in the competition. If the first batsman scores 180 or more on a surface that is probably a little bit two-paced, they should have little trouble winning.

Toss: To Bat

It is by no means a significant differential, but in the IPL, teams who bat first have had the best success at this stadium! Nevertheless, we anticipate that both captains would like to bat first before tossing, much as CSK did in the last game on their route to victory.
