PBKS vs RCB: IPL 2024 team news

With eight points from eleven matches, Royal Challengers Bengaluru (net run rate -0.049) is seventh on the points table and Punjab Kings eighth (-0.187). Whoever loses tonight will be eliminated from the race for the play-offs.

The Dharamshala pitch surprisingly assisted the spinners during Punjab’s last match against Chennai Super Kings. Expect them to roll out a similar surface against RCB, the team with the weakest spin attack. In that case, expect the Punjab spinners, Chahar and Brar, to rule the roost. Curran will continue to lead Punjab in Shikhar Dhawan’s absence.

Maxwell’s indifferent form is a concern for the RCB, but he is likely to play a role if pitch assists take a turn for the worse. If not, RCB can opt to go with three foreign players and use one of Maxwell and Topley as the Impact Player, depending on whether they bat or field first.
