The 27th game of IPL 2023 will be played between Punjab Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore at the IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali.
RCB have won two of their five games and are currently at the eighth spot in the points table. They come into this game on the back of a loss to Chennai Super Kings in the previous game. Chasing a big total of 226, Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell kept RCB alive in the contest by sharing a partnership of 126 runs. However, the target eventually proved too big for RCB as they fell short by a small margin. They will be looking to get back to winning ways in the next game.
Punjab Kings, on the other hand, are currently fifth in the points table with three wins from five matches. They come into this game after defeating Lucknow Super Giants by 2 wickets. Fielding first, their bowlers conceded 159 runs in 20 overs – Sam Curran picked up three wickets while Kagiso Rabada took two. Punjab stuttered in their chase but eventually got over the line in the last over.

IPL 2023 PBKS vs RCB Match Prediction
Although RCB are much lower in the points table as compared to Punjab Kings, we predict them to win this game. Both their batting and bowling line up looks strong – Faf fu Plessis has been brilliant with the bat so far while Mohammed Siraj has delivered the goods with the ball. Punjab could be without Shikhar Dhawan in this game, which potentially makes them a less intimidating side.
