PBKS are in the sixth position in the points table. They have 4 points in 6 matches. They have a good side but lack of consistency is affecting the team. They will be looking to earn the valuable 2 points to climb up on the table.

RCB have lost only against Chennai Super Kings. Players are in positive mode and great form. Batting and Bowling both are balanced. The team is in the second position right now. They will be looking to grab the top position again.

Inside PBKS:

K L Rahul is the most dependable batsman on the team. Mayank is doing well but not able to bat for long. Gayle is in poor form. Deepak Hooda played an excellent inning in his first match. But he has forgotten his bat there.

PBKS is looking to find their best XI

Pooran has finally scored some runs in the last match. Moises Henriques has been brought in. he is showing some positive intent. Shahrukh Khan is also doing well in the lower order. But of lack of experience is still there. Bishnoi is bowling so well.

Jordan can hit big. But he is expensive with the ball too. Arshdeep and Shami are doing well with the ball. The bowlers need some runs to defend at least.

Inside RCB:

RCB is having a dream season this year. The extraordinary batting lineup is doing so well. Devdutt and Kohli are opening in a good manner. Young Rajat has batted well in the previous Match.

In the middle order, ABD and Maxwell are also in good form and scoring big runs. Daniel Sams also can hit big.

Chahal and Washington are bowling spin well. But the spotlight is on Siraj now. This player has improved a lot this year. Harshal Patel has the purple cap now but Siraj is also bowling with a good discipline.
