Vivo IPL 2021: RCB vs PBKS Dream11 Prediction, Playing11, Pitch Report, Best Fantasy Tips

RCB vs PBKS Dream11: Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will meet KL Rahul’s Punjab Kings (PBKS) in a thrilling encounter which will be match number 48 of the Vivo IPL 2021 in the evening fixture of the Sunday double-header.

Bangalore started their IPL 2021 campaign strongly in India, however, the forced break for them hasn’t been fruitful. RCB faced a couple of defeats in UAE matches as the tournament restarted. Nevertheless, the side has managed to retaliate comfortably with two wins in the last two matches.

On the other hand, Punjab Kings (PBKS) once again are down to the wire in the chase of a playoff spot. The franchise could have done well and their points table rankings could have been better had they capitalized on the close encounters.

PBKS have lost several matches, which were in their control at one time. The losses have already hurt them and will continue to do so if they didn’t win the remaining matches. The team will be fighting hard for the final four spots where two teams are confirmed and the slot for two are left.

RCB vs PBKS, Sharjah Cricket Stadium Pitch Report:

Sharjah hasn’t been nice to the batters in the Vivo IPL 2021. Unlike last year, the ground has behaved indifferent and the bowlers have used the surface quite nicely. Despite having shorter boundaries, the batters have found it hard to take on the bowlers. Once again a low scoring thriller can be expected from the two teams. The average equation of the teams would lie around 140-150.
