PBKS vs RCB IPL 2023 Match 27 Team News, Injury Update
PBKS Team News vs RCB: Punjab Kings have all players fit for the tie against RCB except Liam Livingstone and Shikhar Dhawan. His arrival is ambiguous but the Englishman is expected to play for them soon.
Punjab left out Shikhar Dhawan in the last game due to injury and will undergo a fitness test on Wednesday. It looks like these two will be the only changes and PBKS may stick with the same team as last match if both Dhawan and Livingstone are unfit.
Sikander Raza played an outstanding inning in the LSG match to take them over the line and looks set to start again, while Matthew Short, Sam Curran and Kagiso Rabada may complete their overseas picks.
RCB Team News vs PBKS: Royal Challengers Bangalore do have a full squad available against Punjab on Thursday. The batting has been their forte while bowling has been their achilles heel for them.
And RCB can tweak the lineup and bring a spinner in a relatively bigger Mohali stadium. Their four overseas players look settled – Faf du Plessis, Glenn Maxwell, Wanindu Hasaranga and Wayne Parnell.
RCB can make a change as Shahbaz Ahmed can be left out and Manoj Bhandage can come in.
