PBKS vs RCB IPL 2023: Match Prediction
Punjab Kings are coming on the back of a morale-boosting win over Lucknow Super Giants. They have shown enough depth and resilience to grind out some positive results and will aim to rise again as they take on a depleted RCB side.
RCB’s recent upsurge took a major hit yet again as they failed to register a win against Chennai Super Kings. RCB’s bowling was below par, while the batting had many positives to build on. It is to be seen how they cope against a strong Punjab side in an afternoon match on Thursday.
RCB have some gigantic names of modern cricket on their side, while PBKS have acted excellently as a unit so far, with fantastic leadership from the veteran Shikhar Dhawan. In this match, we believe Punjab have the upper hand and they may just edge past RCB.
PBKS vs RCB Head-to-Head in IPL
Punjab Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore have met 30 times in IPL. Bangalore have won 13 times while Punjab have tasted victory 17 times.
RCB’s record in the recent past against the Kings is dismal, as Virat Kohli’s team have managed only one win in their last six meetings. Last year, PBKS won both matches by 5 wickets and 54 runs respectively.
