Match Preview

Punjab Kings will go against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 27th match of the Indian Premier League.

Both these teams are doing well at the moment with Punjab in 5th place and RCB in 8th position in the points table.

Additionally, looking at their previous games, then Punjab Kings beat Lucknow Super Giants by 2 wickets as Shahrukh Khan gave some lusty blows toward the end to the LSG bowlers.

Meanwhile, Royal Challengers Bangalore lost a close game to Chennai Super Kings in the last over at home and will be looking to get a win under their belt.

On the other hand, Punjab Kings will also look to be at their very best tomorrow at Mohali against RCB and they will be wary of their batters.

Thus, we will get a cracking afternoon game between these two sides tomorrow.
