  • Prabhsimran Singh has been consistent and in good form across recent games. The opener is our tip for Punjab Kings’ highest run scorer against RCB. Harshal Patel has taken 17 wickets across this campaign and the pace bowler is a strong choice for Punjab Kings’ top wicket taker in this match.
  • Virat Kohli hit 42 runs from 27 balls at the top of the order in the win over Gujarat Titans and the 35 year old is well worth backing as RCB’s highest run scorer against Punjab Kings. Mohammed Siraj took 2/29 in the last game and the right-arm quick is our pick for RCB’s top wicket taker in this fixture.
  • With 48 fours across the tournament, we recommend backing Virat Kohli to hit the most fours in this game on Thursday.

Toss Predictions

Of the 12 IPL matches played at this venue, seven have been won by team batting first. In this clash at the HPCA Stadium, with CSK winning the last fixture here batting first, we predict both skippers will choose to bat if they win the toss.

Weather & Pitch Report


The forecast is for clear skies from start to finish on Thursday evening with the temperature in the mid-twenties. We do not expect the temperature to drop below 22 degrees and there is no danger of rain interrupting..

Pitch Report:

The average score batting first at the HPCA Stadium is 179 and we saw CSK post 167/9 earlier this month. We expect the pitch to be quicker in this clash throughout the game with runs coming a little easier than in Match 53. A par score for the team batting first is likely to be over 185.

Winning Chances: 

Neither side can afford to lose this game on Thursday evening and it looks set to be played on a pitch which will offer something for both batters and bowlers. Therefore it will come down to which team is able to produce the goods and it is RCB who have been doing so on a regular basis. Both teams have explosive batters and one big innings from an individual could decide the contest. Overall though, we think RCB are unstoppable at the moment and are backing them to win again.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru to beat Punjab Kings

Royal Challengers Bengaluru a 58% chance to win this match 

Punjab Kings a 42% chance to win this match 

Key Players: 

Punjab Kings 

Prabhsimran Singh 

The opener top scored for Punjab Kings in the last game with 30 runs from 23 balls after hitting two fours and two sixes on this pitch.

Jonny Bairstow 

The England all-format international has had a strong second half of the campaign with scores of 108 not out against KKR and 46 against CSK.

Harshal Patel 

The right-arm fast medium is averaging a wicket every 13.06 balls in the IPL 2024. It is now 82 dismissals over the last four seasons of the competition.

Arshdeep Singh 

The left-arm swing bowler took another two wickets against CSK when he dismissed Ajinkya Rahane in his opening over and Ravindra Jadeja in the final over.

PBKS Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Arshdeep Singh, Harpreet Singh Bhatia, Tanay Thyagarajan Vidwath Kaverappa, Rishi Dhawan 

We have often seen Arshdeep Singh used purely during the fielding innings and we expect the same in this game with Prabhsimran Singh coming into the side for the batting innings.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru 

Virat Kohli 

It has been another remarkable individual campaign for one of the greatest batters of all time. He comes into this match averaging 67.75 runs with a strike-rate of 148.08.

Dinesh Karthik 

The keeper-batter has been delivering with the bat across this season and he hit 21 not out from 12 balls to get the side over the line in the last game.

Mohammed Siraj 

The Indian international took the Player of the Match Award in Match 52 after dismissing Wriddhiman Saha and Shubman Gill across his opening two overs.

Yash Dayal 

The left-arm pace bowler took 2/21 across his four overs against Gujarat Titans with both of his wickets coming within the 18th over of the innings.

RCB Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Mahipal Lomror, Anuj Rawat, Suyash Prabhudessai, Akash Deep, Rajat Patidar 

Rajat Patidar came off the bench in the last game and although he made only 2 runs from 3 balls, his overall returns this season have been impressive. Yash Dayal is the likely candidate to play only during the fielding innings.

Team Forms: 

PBKS Team Form: 

Punjab Kings won back to back games before their 28 run loss to CSK in Dharamsala on Sunday.

RCB Team Form: 

RCB are looking to make it four wins in a row in this game after victories against Sunrisers Hyderabad and twice against Gujarat Titans.
