In the first match of Thursday's doubleheader, Punjab Kings will take in Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, Mohali. Punjab Kings, who have been performing well this IPL season will host the Faf-led squad, who lost their last fixture against the MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings on April 17, in Bengaluru. They have managed to win only two of their five fixtures as of now in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League 2023.
In their past two clashes, both Punjab and Bengaluru-based franchises have managed to win one toss each. However, we would like to believe that luck will favour PBKS during their next fixture against Royal Challengers Bangalore as the match is scheduled at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, which also happens to be the home ground of the Punjab-based franchise.
The Bengaluru-based franchise and Punjab Kings (earlier Kings XI Punjab) have faced each other for 30times in the history of the Indian Premier League, where Punjab Kings have won 17 encounters whereas, the Royal Challengers Bangalore have won 13 battles. It clearly shows the dominance of the Punjab Kings over the RCB squad. Not only this, the Dhawan-led squad have been performing quite well this year as well. Seeing all the odds, we feel Dhawan and Co. will take on the upcoming match as well and emerge victorious in it.
Predicted Powerplay Score and Average First Inning Score
The first-inning score of the upcoming clash between PBKS and RCB will be somewhere between 165-170, and the powerplay score will be between 45-50.
