Betting Tips

  • KL Rahul has been the key man for Punjab Kings throughout this year’s campaign. So far, he has hit three half-centuries and 240 runs in total with only Faf du Plessis and Shikhar Dhawan above him on the runs list. With the ball, Mohammad Shami and Arshdeep Singh both have 7 wickets from 6 games. Ravi Bishnoi took 2 wickets in his first game of the tournament and followed up by conceding only 19 runs from 4 overs against Kolkata Knight Riders.
  • RCB have come through their two top of the table clashes with a heavy defeat against CSK and a tight win over Delhi Capitals. Glenn Maxwell continues to top the tournament runs for RCB with 223, although AB de Villiers’ unbeaten 75 from 42 balls against Delhi has him on his tail with 204. Harshal Patel is the top bowler of the tournament so far and took wicket numbers 16 and 17, Prithvi Shaw and Marcus Stoinis, against Delhi.
  • Punjab finally gave a first game of the season to Chris Jordan against KKR but as yet have resisted playing the ICC T20I number 1 ranked batsman in Dawid Malan. RCB are yet to select New Zealander Finn Allen and now have his compatriot Scott Kugeleijn available as a replacement for Kane Richardson.

PBKS vs RCB T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2021

Punjab Kings face Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 7th game for both teams in the 2021 IPL. This means that after this fixture, both sides will have played against all seven other sides in this year’s competition. RCB come into this game with only Chennai Super Kings keeping them off the top by virtue of a stronger run-rate, Punjab Kings are one of the cluster of teams with two wins from six games. The game will get underway at 19:30 local time and will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.

Punjab Kings will be looking to channel the energy from their 9-wicket win against current holders Mumbai Indians in this game. Their other victory came against Rajasthan Royals in their opening match of the tournament. A score from KL Rahul will always give them a chance.

After a 69 run defeat against CSK to end their 100% winning record, RCB bounced back with a 1 run win against Delhi Capitals. Virat Kohli will be delighted that it only took one game to return to winning ways and they should be full of confidence in this fixture.

PBKS vs RCB Prediction

Punjab Kings Team News & Playing 11

PBKS Team News

With only two wins from their opening six games, it may well be that coach Anil Kumble and captain KL Rahul feel that Dawid Malan could add some valuable runs to the team. After contributing only 28 runs from five innings, it may well be that Nicholas Pooran makes way for Malan.

PBKS Key Players

  • KL Rahul - Punjab Kings’ captain and talisman averages 48.00 in the tournament so far. He’ll be looking to push that average back above 50 which is where it has finished across the last three IPLs.
  • Chris Jordan - an experienced campaigner across multiple T20 leagues and internationals for England, Jordan hit 30 from 18 balls late on in the innings. Also a very useful bowler and exceptional in the field.
  • Ravi Bishnoi - after being left out of the early games, the Ravi Bishnoi from the 2020 IPL is clearly still in the minds of the opposing batsmen. KKR’s played him with immense care, taking only 19 runs from his 4 overs.

PBKS Team Form

You never really know which Punjab Kings are going to turn up although their form has generally been poor so far this year in IPL 2021. Two wins from six games is not the type of run which gets you into the latter stages of the tournament.

Punjab Kings Predicted Playing 11

KL Rahul (c) (wk), Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Dawid Malan, Deepak Hooda, Moises Henriques, Shahrukh Khan, Chris Jordan, Mohammad Shami, Ravi Bishnoi, Arshdeep Singh

Royal Challengers Bangalore Team News & Playing 11

RCB Team News

Virat Kohli announced two changes ahead of their crucial win against Delhi Capitals with Rajat Patidar coming in for Navdeep Saini and Daniel Sams replacing Dan Christian. Patidar made a useful 22-ball 31 with Sams making 3 not-out and sending down 2 overs for 15 runs. We expect the same XI in this game.

RCB Key Players

  • Virat Kohli - the high standards he demands of his players are resulting in excellent team and individual performances. It won’t be long before he adds to his top score of 72* in this year’s IPL.
  • Glenn Maxwell - reborn this year, he can’t stop scoring runs and looks well worth his price of 142.5 million INR. Surrounded by other talented batsmen, he is averaging 44.60 so far this tournament.
  • AB de Villiers - still going strong at 37 years of age, he already has scores of 48, 76* and 75* this campaign. The runs coming at a strike-rate of 174.35.

RCB Team Form

A heavy defeat followed by a 1-run win would imply that their form has somewhat cooled in recent games. However, five wins from six games is matched only by CSK. Both teams at the top of the tree are looking very strong.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Predicted Playing 11

Virat Kohli (c) , Devdutt Padikkal, Rajat Patidar, Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers, Washington Sundar, Daniel Sams, Kyle Jamieson, Harshal Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Siraj

PBKS vs RCB Top Team Batsmen

We are backing KL Rahul, Chris Gayle and Dawid Malan with the bat for Punjab Kings. Rahul is due another bog score and Malan’s numbers in international cricket merit a call-up.

For RCB we are backing Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers. It would be incredible if none of them made a big score but completely plausible that all three do.

PBKS vs RCB Top Team Bowlers

We are backing Mohammad Shami, Arshdeep Singh and Ravi Bishnoi to cause the most problems for the RCB batsmen. If players start taking risks against Bishnoi then they could come to regret it.

For RCB we have gone with Harshal Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal and Mohammed Siraj. Patel showed real character to return from his pounding against Jadeja to pick up two wickets in the win against Delhi.

Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Prediction

Punjab have surprised the pundits in a couple of games so far but it would be a stretch too far to predict a victory for them against Virat Kohli’s side of match winners. We are expecting a convincing win for RCB to leave them with six wins from their opening seven games.

Final Verdict

Royal Challengers Bangalore are favorites to win against Punjab Kings at odds of 1.71

PBKS vs RCB Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    AB de Villiers (10) and KL Rahul (10.5) will be our wicket-keepers. They have 440 runs between them in the tournament so far.

  • Batsmen

    Virat Kohli (10.5), Glenn Maxwell (9.5), Dawid Malan (8.5) and Shahrukh Khan (8) are our batsmen. Kohli and Maxwell have looked unstoppable for RCB.

  • All-rounders

    Washington Sundar (8) will be our all-rounder. He has chipped in with cameo performances so far but is due a bigger role at some point.

  • Bowlers

    Harshal Patel (9), Yuzvendra Chahal (8.5), Arshdeep Singh (8.5) and Ravi Bishnoi (8.5) make up our bowling attack. Patel just can’t stop taking wickets this year.

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    Harshal Patel will be captain, AB de Villiers his deputy

PBKS vs RCB Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, Dawid Malan, Shahrukh Khan

  • All Rounder:Washington Sundar

  • Wicket Keeper:AB de Villiers

RCB look confident to get closer to play-off berth

RCB are in the top half of the table, Punjab Kings are on the verge of pressing the panic button. RCB have clicked as a unit and are one of the better-positioned teams to make it to the play-offs before moving to Kolkata for their next leg. Punjab have a few things to sort, their middle order has been hurting them with some mediocre displays so far.
