PBKS vs BLR Dream11 Tips for Match 26 IPL 2021 Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Today Match Prediction 30 April


PBKS vs BLR Dream11: It will be a battle of two charismatic captains who are the pillars of their respective batting orders. Punjab Kings have blown hot and cold so far and thus find themselves at the bottom half of the points table. Rahul’s low strike rates have often put the pressure on the rest of the batsmen. Though his consistency is never a question, Punjab will require him to show more intent at the top. Bowlers showed excellent application defending the low total in the last match. Ravi Bishnoi’s inclusion into the eleven has given Punjab the spark they needed in the middle overs.

Meanwhile, Royal Challengers Bangalore are having a kind of a tournament that they have been waiting for years. The players are clicking and they have found a no. of match winners so far. Padikkal is starting to look fluent at the top. Maxwell has been devastating in the middle overs while AB de Villiers is finishing the innings perfectly. At the bowling front, the emergence of Harshal Patel and Mohammed Siraj has been huge positives for RCB.

Who will win today match?
It’s hard to believe that a lineup having Gayle, Rahul and Pooran could muster only 123 runs but that has been the story of Punjab so far this season. Despite having star batsmen, they have had batting collapses. The Caribbean duo of Gayle and Pooran haven’t fired consistently. On the opposite, RCB have similarly devastating batsmen but they have clicked consistently despite skipper Virat Kohli not at his best. But their bowling has been the biggest positive with Harshal Patel the highest wicket- taker of the season so far. Bangalore will start the match as favorites in the PBKS vs BLR Dream 11 Today Match Prediction.
