Royal Challengers Bangalore and Punjab Kings will battle it out in their next game of IPL 2022 as both teams will be hoping to reach the playoffs. RCB under Faf du Plessis's leadership has done well so far and has a better chance to reach the playoffs if they manage to defeat Punjab in the match.

Royal Challengers Bangalore and Punjab Kings will be up against each other in their next game of IPL 2022. Both teams are in contention to reach the playoffs and will be aiming to put their best foot forward when they take the field in the next game. Faf du Plessis has done a good job so far in his first season as captain of the RCB. He has led from the front and made smart changes during the game to help his side win close games. 

However, Punjab Kings on the other hand have had a mixed IPL so far as they have not be as consistent as they would have liked during the tournament. With the kind of squad they have, many people expected the franchise to dominate this season. Mayank Agarwal as skipper has done a decent job but has not been able to perform as well with the bat as he has done in the last few seasons.

The Punjab Kings will be hoping that their skipper finds his mojo back and plays a match-winning knock to take them closer to the playoff qualification.

Predicted XIs

Royal Challengers Bangalore:  Faf du Plessis (c), Virat Kohli, Rajat Patidar, Glenn Maxwell, Shahbaz Ahmed, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Mahipal Lomror, Wanindu Hasaranga, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Josh Hazlewood. 

Punjab Kings: Mayank Agarwal (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Jonny Bairstow (WK), Liam Livingstone, Shahrukh Khan, Rishi Dhawan, Odean Smith, Harpreet Brar, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar & Arshdeep Singh.

Best Betting Tip 

Virat Kohli has had a disappointing IPL 2022 so far with the bat as he has scored just two fifties in the tournament so far. The right-handed batter has scored 3 golden ducks which is a very rare sight in cricket. However, with Punjab Kings having a good bowling line-up, expect them to dismiss Kohli early this time around.

Match Prediction 

Royal Challengers Bangalore have had a good run in the IPL so far and their ability to perform well at the final stages of the innings because of Dinesh Karthik gives them an edge against their opponents. Our prediction is that RCB will win the match against Punjab Kings.
