Team Analysis

Punjab Kings

Punjab Kings have undoubtedly one of most powerful teams in the IPL 2023, with strong bowling as well as batting side. With names like Shikhar Dhawan, Matthew Short, Sikandar Raza and Sam Curran, in their batting lineup, and Kagiso Rabada, Curran and Arshdeep Singh in their bowling department, Punjab hold a dominating position in the tournament.

Royal Challengers Bangalore
Similar to Punjab Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore also possess a powerful team with Virat Kohli and Faf-du Plessis being consistent during the season. Though the team comes with a good batting department, the bowling department of the team has been a matter of concern throughout the season, with the bowlers, leaking runs in the death overs and failing heavily when it comes to defending the runs.
