Faf Du Plessis and his men will travel to Mohali to face the Punjab Kings on Thursday afternoon at the PCA stadium. In the IPL 2023 standings, Royal Challengers Bangalore are seventh with four points in five games while Punjab Kings are fifth with six points in five games.
RCB lost a thrilling encounter by just eight runs against Chennai Super Kings at home in their last game. Faf Du Plessis and Maxwell were going well chasing a steep total of 226, as they formed a 126-run partnership after Kohli and Lomror departed early. The Challengers bowled well in the powerplay but lost the plot thereafter and at the Chinnaswamy, you don’t have much margin of error. Faf Du Plessis will hope Hasaranga comes back in form as they are lacking in the spin department.
On the other hand, Punjab Kings won their last game against Lucknow with Sikandar Raza being the Man of the match. Chasing a par total of 160 on a two-paced wicket without their premier batsman Shikhar Dhawan, Sikandar Raza stepped up. A 10-ball 23 cameo from Shahrukh Khan at the end brought them home and they are off to a great start to the season. The bowlers were excellent to restrict the batting lineup of LSG to just 159 with the stand-in captain, Sam Curran taking three wickets, along with Rabada, who took two. Shikhar Dhawan is expected to play in this game and that will add additional muscle to this batting lineup.
