IPL 2024: RCB vs PBKS Player Battle 

RCB vs PBKS Player Battle

RCB vs PBKS Player Battle: Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Punjab Kings are ready to play the sixth match of the ongoing Indian Premier League at the Chinaswamy Stadium on Monday.  

Both the teams still seeking their first IPL title will look to gain the early momentum at the high scoring venue.  

Bengaluru failed to start their campaign on a winning note as they lost to Chennai, while Punjab Kings riding high after securing a win in their season opener.

With both teams looking well balanced, here we will look at the possible RCB vs PBKS Player Battle.  

RCB vs PBKS Player Battle:

Shikhar Dhawan vs Mohd Siraj 

Shikhar Dhawan, the skipper of team Punjab Kings, is the backbone of team Punjab Kings. He has been the top run-scorer for his side for the last two seasons, but he has not performed up to the mark in the opening game as he managed to score 22 runs, and now he needs to be aware of RCB’s leading pacer, Mohd Siraj at Chinnaswamy. Siraj too was not able to deliver as per his reputation in the first game, but he will likely dominate at the home venue.

Virat Kohli vs Arshdeep Singh / Sam Curran  

The highest run-getter in the cash league was not looking in good touch in the first game against Chennai and scored 21 of 20. The possible reason behind that is Kohli making a comeback after a 2-month long break, and he was in good form before the break. He likes to score big runs against Punjab Kings, he has smashed 861 runs so far against Punjab, with 113 (50) being his best against the Dhawan led side.  

With Kohli still searching for his touch, the left-arm pacers in Punjab can play a hurdle in his big knock, as both Arshdeep Singh and Sam Curran can swing the ball into the right handers, which is one of Kohli’s weak points.

Glenn Maxwell vs Rahul Chahar 

Maxwell has a strike-rate of around 175 at the batting friendly Chinnaswamy Satdium. He likes to play against the spin too but struggles against the leg-spinners. The big show’s bat remained silent in the team’s opening game, where he was out for a first ball duck.  

Punjab’s premier leg-spinner, who took a wicket while giving 33 in 4 overs, will try to trap Maxwell to put RCB under pressure, which is one the best battles to watch out for in RCB vs PBKS clash.
