Royal Challengers Bangalore will look to cement their claim of a place in the play-offs in IPL 2021 with a win against Punjab Kings on Sunday. RCB, who are in search of their maiden IPL title, is in third place with 14 points from 11 matches with seven wins and four losses.
With two more points, RCB will almost ensure a place in the playoffs. Punjab Kings registered a morale-boosting win against Kolkata Knight Riders in the previous match.
Punjab Kings also kept their hopes of making the play-offs alive with a five-wicket win over KKR. The team, however, is fifth with 10 points from five wins from 12 matches. The team has faced defeat in seven matches.
However, the road for the Punjab team against RCB will not be easy. Skipper Virat Kohli may have failed to score big but he looked in fine form during the teams win against Rajasthan Royals. Kohlis young opening partner Devdutt Padikkal is also in good touch.
Both of them played some attractive shots after which star all-rounder Glenn Maxwell ensured the teams victory with a second consecutive half-century. Sreekar Bharat has also lived up to the expectation and in the last match, he shared a good partnership with Maxwell.
AB de Villiers provides strength to RCB in the lower middle order which other teams miss and the Punjab team is well aware of this fact. The team has bowlers like Mohammad Siraj, Harshal Patel, Shahbaz Ahmed, and Yuzvendra Chahal. Chahal has made a good comeback from the poor form, which has strengthened RCBs bowling attack.
On the other hand, the Punjab team will once again hope for a good start from the reliable opening pair of captain Lokesh Rahul and Mayank Agarwal. Rahul and Agarwal played well against KKR and against RCB, the team would once again want a good start from the pair.
Mohammed Shami and Arshdeep Singh played a key role in Punjabs win against KKR by bowling brilliantly in the death overs and they will look to replicate the performance against RCB.
Fans can enjoy the match live on Star Sports Network, Jio TV and Disney + Hotstar.
