PBKS vs RCB Predicted Playing 11 - IPL 2023 Match 27

Punjab Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore will fight it out in the 27th Match of the IPL 2023. This match is scheduled to take place on 20th April at IS Bindra PCA Stadium in Mohali.

PBKS is currently at the 5th spot on the table with 3 wins in 5 matches while RCB is at the 8th spot with 2 wins in 5 matches so far.

Let’s take a look at the probable playing 11 for this match.

Punjab Kings

  • Top Order: The skipper Shikhar Dhawan missed the last match due to a niggle. He along with Liam Livingstone will undergo a fitness test 24 hours before the match. We are expecting Dhawan to join back the playing 11 and lead once again. Prabhsimran will open alongside him and Matthew Short or Liam Livingstone will be part of the playing 11. Shorts has been impressive so far.
  • Middle Order: The middle-order will feature the same faces once again. Sikandar Raza, Jitesh Sharma, Shahrukh Khan, Sam Curran and Harpreet Brar make up for a strong middle-order. Raza emerged as the Player of the Match for his all-round performance in the last match.
  • Lower Order: Arshdeep Singh and Kagiso Rabada are going good so far but the worries are at the spin front as Rahul Chahar has picked only 2 wickets in 5 matches but he has maintained a good economy.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

  • Top Order: RCB is still experimenting with the number 3 spot. Mahipal Lomror is far away from cementing his place at this spot. Faf du Plessis is currently the orange cap holder with 259 runs while Kohli has scored 220 runs. 
  • Middle Order: RCB need to level up their middle-order. Maxwell is the only reliable batter in the middle. Karthik is not able to get into form. Mahipal Lomror, Shahbaz Ahmed, Wayne Parnell and Wanindu Hasaranga are not reliable in terms of batting but RCB does not have many options to replace them. RCB need a better middle-order for the latter stage of the season as well.
  • Lower Order: Vijaykumar Vyshak displayed an impressive performance and he will backed again in the playing 11. Harshal Patel and Mohammed Siraj will also be part of this team. Siraj has picked 8 wickets so far while Patel has taken 6 wickets.
