PBKS vs RCB Tips, Stats & Team for Today Match Prediction
Match: PBKS vs RCB IPL T20 Match Prediction
Time: 27 March, 07:30 PM (IST)
Series: IPL T20 Match
Venue: Dr. D.Y. Patil Sports Academy - Navi Mumbai, India
Shikhar Dhawan signed for Punjab Kings ahead of this season and hit 587 runs in 2021. He is our tip for their highest run scorer in this match. Spinner Rahul Chahar has been a consistent wicket-taker in the tournament and is a strong choice for Punjab Kings’ top wicket taker against RCB.
Virat Kohli will be free of the captaincy in this IPL season and he is our pick for RCB’s highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, Mohammed Siraj has taken 11 wickets in both of his last IPL campaigns and is well worth backing as RCB’s top wicket taker against Punjab Kings.
No one has scored more IPL runs than Virat Kohli and he is our prediction for the Player of the Match Award.
TV channels: This match will be shown live on Star Sports in India, Sky Cricket in the UK and Fox Sport in Australia. Flow Sports will broadcast in the Caribbean with SuperSport possessing the rights in South Africa.
Live Streaming: Fans can stream the match on Disney+ Hotstar and SkyGo
Weather & Pitch Report:
Initially sunny before clear skies take over during the evening. Highs of 30 degrees with humidity increasing.
The surface at the DY Patil Stadium is often fast and pacey which attracts both the quick and spin bowlers. The ball should come nicely onto the bat and we expect to see some high individual scores
We expect that both Mayank Agarwal and Faf du Plessis will want to field first. With due coming into the equation later in the evening, neither side will want to have to handle a wet ball.

PBKS vs RCB H2H:
PBKS Team News:
The Kings will be without England keeper-batter Jonny Bairstow who is playing in the Final Test of the West Indies v England series. They will also not be able to call upon the services of South African pace bowler Kagiso Rabada who was playing in an ODI series against Bangladesh until Wednesday.
RCB Team News:
RCB will be missing two of their Australian contingent for their first game of IPL 2022 and other early games of the tournament with all-rounder Glenn Maxwell getting married and Josh Hazlewood on international duty in Pakistan. However, they have strength in depth in their squad and will still put out an impressive XI.

Who will win today's match: PBKS vs RCB IPL T20 Match Fantasy Team
PBKS is the favorite to win the match.
PBKS Key Players:
The opening batter is an excellent new recruit for Punjab Kings. No player has hit more fours than Dhawan in the history of the IPL.
The big-hitting Lancashire all-rounder has rapidly developed into one of the most sought after white ball batters in the world over the last 12 months.
The spinner has a lot of responsibility on his shoulders and will be leading a relatively inexperienced bowling attack in this game.
RCB Key Players:
There will be plenty of debate over whether Kohli should open the batting for RCB or play at number three or four. Irrespective of his batting position, he will deliver runs.
Faf du Plessis:
It will require a big character to fill the captaincy shoes of Virat Kohli in the RCB side. Fortunately, du Plessis is a natural leader and scored 633 IPL runs last year.
The India international bowler is a competitive individual and he will take the new ball for RCB in this game.
PBKS Team Updates:
- Shikhar Dhawan and Mayank Agarwal will probably open the inning.
- Liam Livingstone will bat at the one down position. He is the backbone of the batting team.
- Shahrukh Khan and Jitesh Sharma will handle the middle order batting.
