There has been no dearth of entertainment for cricket fans lately, courtesy incredible knocks from Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. To make matters worse for other teams, even Chris Gayle rediscovered his form in the previous match against Kolkata Knight Riders with a fluent 49-run knock.
Bowling could be a concern for RCB, but as far as their batsmen are scoring heaps of runs, the bowlers have plenty to defend.
Punjab, on the other hand, once again find themselves at the bottom in the points table for the second consecutive year in a row.
Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis are two other cricketers who have headed home, and it would be interesting to see what will be the team’s combination for today’s match.
