THE LOWDOWN

ROYAL CHALLENGERS BENGALURU

  • After losing their opening game comprehensively against Chennai Super Kings in Chepauk, Royal Challengers Bengaluru will be banking on home comforts to help get their 2024 IPL campaign up and running.
  • A top-order collapse was what proved RCB’s undoing batting first, losing five wickets for just 37 runs following an opening partnership of 41 and this area of their needs to be cleaned up ahead of Punjab’s visit.

PUNJAB KINGS

  • We mentioned the importance of Punjab Kings’ English contingent in our preview of their opening game against Delhi Capitals and it were two of those who successfully got the Kings over the line with four balls to spare.
  • Batting at number four, Sam Curran struck 63 before Liam Livingstone played the role of finisher, striking an unbeaten 38 from 21 balls to see Punjab home with four wickets to spare.

THE PREDICTION

Expect a strong response at home from Royal Challengers Bengaluru in front of their fanatical supporters at the Chinnaswamy. Their batting line-up is too good to collapse in a heap for a second match running and it’s hard to see the likes of both Kohli and Maxwell failing in consecutive fixtures. Punjab Kings impressed in their opening game, but RCB on the road represents a significant step-up in quality, so backing the hosts has to be favoured.
