IPL 2023 PBKS vs RCB: Match preview, head-to-head and streaming details

When pitted against each other, PBKS prevails over RCB.

In the 27th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023Punjab Kings (PBKS) will welcome Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali tomorrow i.e. Thursday, April 20 at 3:30 PM IST.

The Mohali stadium’s pitch is an excellent venue for batting. By virtue of its good bounce and pace, the batters will have greater opportunities to score big. The pitch also helps the quick bowlers in the first few overs in some manner.

The hosts will enter the contest fresh off an exciting victory over Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). The team, led by Shikhar Dhawan, will be motivated to beat an already suffering Bangalore team in the forthcoming match. The skipper of PBKS, who has already scored a good amount of runs in this IPL, will once again be the main batting pillar for PBKS. In the middle order, Matthew Short has been playing exceedingly well in the past couple of games. Arshdeep Singh, Kagiso Rabada, Sam Curran, and other bowlers have all shown great form in their last few games. In the spin department, the Pubjab-based team has Rahul Chahar and Harpreet Brar, who has put in reliable performances.

RCB, meanwhile, fell to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in their most recent match, thus the Faf du Plessis-led team will be eager to rebound. In their most recent game, RCB and CSK fought hard against each other, with du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell scoring significant runs in the batting. Both the batters alongside Virat Kohli are in good form, which is encouraging for RCB. The team will also rely on Wayne Parnell and Mohammed Siraj, who will be essential in the powerplay. Furthermore, with players such as Wanindu Hasaranga, Shahbaz Ahmed, and Maxwell, the spin department appears to be significant which will be crucial at the IS Bindra Stadium.


When pitted against each other, PBKS prevails over RCB. The two sides played 30 games with Punjab winning 17 and Bangalore winning 13.

In the last match between the two sides in the previous edition, PBKS won by 54 runs.
