Punjab Kings v Royal Challengers Bangalore – Match Preview

Punjab haven’t found the right formula in IPL 2021 and need to be careful their playoff chances don’t start to slip away.

Bangalore, meanwhile, have started really well with just one loss in their first six games.

They also have a good record against the Kings having won seven of the last 11 meetings.

Where: Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad

When: Friday, 30 April 2021

Start time: 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT)

Pitch conditions: The pitch is fresh and decent for batting but the ball hasn’t quite carried to the bat so far. Teams can get a little bogged down when pace is taken off. A first-innings score of 175+ should be competitive.

Weather conditions: It will be hot in Ahmedabad for this clash. There is no chance of rain but low winds could mean dew does have an impact later in the match.

Punjab Kings v Royal Challengers Bangalore – Team News

  • KL Rahul – The Punjab skipper has done well in the opening weeks of the season but has found it difficult to put back-to-back big scores together.
  • Nicholas Pooran – The West Indian continues to struggle and he may be the man to make way for Dawid Malan should Punjab finally hand England’s T20I star an opportunity.
  • Ravi Bishnoi – The young spinner has had a really good impact after coming back into the side. He could be key to stiffling the RCB batmen in Ahmedabad.
  • Devdutt Padikkal – The Bangalore opener needs to add consistency after failing to follow up on his excellent ton against Rajasthan. Another partnership with Virat Kohli could be vital.
  • Harshal Patel – The RCB seamer just keeps finding ways to take wickets no matter what venue he plays at. He is bowling with plenty of confidence and it would be no surprise to see him shine again.
  • AB de Villiers – The South Africa star is enjoying IPL 2021 and heads into this clash after a barnstorming 75 from 42 balls against Delhi.

Punjab Kings v Royal Challengers Bangalore – Betting Tips and Prediction

This looks another tough challenge for Punjab unless a few changes to the line-up can bring an improved showing.

RCB got over the line against Delhi after recovering from the loss of early wickets and could prove too strong as they continue their charge to the playoffs.

Here are our top tips for this fixture.

Sundar to Get Over 20.5 Performance Points

Washington Sundar has not had the same impact he did last year but was hard to get away in the previous clash at this venue.

He has the ability to cause more problems in this match and he can pick up a wicket or two as well.

Sundar also did well in Ahmedabad when taking wickets for India in the first two T20I against England earlier this year.

The fact he has ability with the bat and is likely to come in at number six is another positive for this bet.

He is priced at 1.83 with bet365 to get over 20.5 player performance points.

Remember, he gets 20 points for every wicket, one for every run he makes and 10 for a catch in the field.

Back Bishnoi for Value

Ravi Bishnoi had to wait for his opportunity in the team but took two wickets in his first game of IPL 2021.

He couldn’t add to that in the last game but still bowled really well.

The 20-year-old could help slow down the RCB batsmen and might be rewarded with wickets.

The spinner did take a wicket in each of the last two Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy games he played at this staium as well.

Bishnoi’s price of 4.5 with 1xBet looks a value selection.

RCB to Have the Best Powerplay

Backing Bangalore to outscore Punjab in the first six overs looks a good bet in this game.

Both opening partnerships have the ability to make strong starts, but the preference is for RCB to bag the greater runs early on.

Devdutt Padikkal has licence to score quickly alongside captain Kolhi, but that doesn’t mean the skipper won’t play his shots.

Mayank Agarwal has been excellent at times for Punjab but KL Rahul has been slow.

The fact number three Chris Gayle also takes his time to get set means an early wicket will only slow them further.

RCB are priced at 1.8 with 22Bet to have the best score after six overs.
