PBKS vs RCB, Match 3 of IPL 2022: iGamio Prediction for Punjab vs Bangalore Indian Premier League

Share

PBKS vs RCB: The two underachievers of the IPL – Royal Challengers Bangalore and Punjab Kings will lock horns at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai today evening in their first match of the IPL 2022. Both teams will be led by a new captain and will be hoping to shred the underachievers’ tag this season by laying hands on their maiden trophy. Royal Challengers Bangalore will be led by Faf du Plessis, who has been one of the architects for Yellow Army’s title wins in the tournament and the Bangalore fans would be hoping he continues the good form in red jersey. Punjab Kings, on the other hand, will be led by Mayank Agarwal and have a solid squad on papers.  It will be interesting to watch how they perform and execute the plans on field. The toss will take place at 07:00 PM IST.
