The Punjab Kings are very well placed on the points table and are looking like a team to beat this season. They have been very good with both bat and ball and will look to continue their winning run.
With the ball, their pace attack is looking strong after the inclusion of Kagiso Rabada. Stand in skipper Sam Curran and Kagiso Rabada were the top wicket takers in the last game and picked up 3 and 2 wickets respectively.
With the bat, their top order is heavily dependent on Shikhar and will look for contributions from the other end as well. Sikandar Raza and Matthew Short batted very well in the last game and scored 57 and 34 runs respectively.
Orange Cap: Most Runs Scorer in IPL 2023
The Royal Challengers are coming into this game after losing their last game against the Chennai Super Kings at their home and will be desperate to win this one. They will look to perform better with the ball.
With the ball, Mohammad Siraj has been consistent with the new ball but all other bowlers have been expensive. They will hope their pacers to be more economical and will also look to make more use of their spinners.
With the bat, their top order has been consistent but are not getting any support from their lower order and are failing to finish the innings. Glenn Maxwell and Faf Du Plessis were the pick from the batters in the last game and scored 76 and 62 runs respectively.
