After beating CSK and KKR, Punjab Kings were unable to make it three wins in a row when they lost the return fixture with CSK on Sunday. Bowling first, PBKS bowlers did a solid job to restrict the opponents to 167/9. Rahul Chahar picked 3 for 23 while Harshal Patel snared 3 for 24. Chasing the target, they lost a couple of early wickets before Prabhsimran Singh and Shashank Singh added 53 runs for the third wicket. But Punjab suffered a big collapse and could not recover from it. However, they have players in strong form with bat and ball and they will back themselves to win this game.

 On the other hand, Royal Challengers Bengaluru emerged victorious in their last game against Gujarat Titans, winning by 4 wickets, with Faf du Plessis scoring 64 runs. RCB bowlers did an excellent job for a change as they bowled out GT for just 147 on a pretty good pitch for batting at Bengaluru. Mohammed Siraj removed both the openers while Yash Dayal and Vijaykumar Vyshak also picked two wickets. Faf du Plessis then blasted 64 off 23 and Virat Kohli made 42 off 27. The pair added 95 runs in only 5.5 overs. RCB lost a few wickets trying to improve the net run-rate but eventually won in 13.4 overs. Bengaluru will look to continue their winning momentum.
