PBKS vs RCB Dream11 IPL Today Match Prediction 30 April [STATS for GRAND LEAGUE – Batting, Bowling, Team, Pitch]


PBKS vs RCB IPL 2021: It is time for another royal battle in this blockbuster Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season as the Punjab Kings (PBKS) are all set to face the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on April 30. Punjab Kings have had a pretty disappointing IPL 2021 campaign so far having won just 2 of their 6 games while this has been a breakthrough start for the Royal Challengers Bangalore winning 5 of their 6 matches. In the 26 matches played between these two teams, Punjab Kings are ahead with 14 wins while RCB have won 12 games. However, it will now be really important for both PBKS and RCB to do well on a consistent basis in this crucial phase of IPL 2021 season.
