Indian Premier League is stepping into the 15th season growing itself by 2 more additional teams. IPL has been one of the biggest T20 parties in the cricketing world and teams and gearing up for action. Royal Challengers Bangalore and Punjab Kings will kick off their campaign against each other on the second day. RCB has been always in the limelight despite their no trophy record in the IPL history. Punjab Kings too have never won the IPL title so far and will look to end their drought this season. Both teams have new teams, new captains in charge and will hope for rejuvenated energy to take them forward in this season.

Punjab Kings Preview

Mayank Agarwal takes over the full-time captaincy of the Punjab kings this season and he will be partnered by the experienced Shikhar Dhawan at the top. Liam Livingstone, Shahrukh Khan, Prabhsimran Singh, and Rishi Dhawan are expected to slot in the middle order for the team. Johnny Bairstow and kagiso Rabada are currently unavailable due to national commitments. Punjab Kings lack experience in their middle order and rely on youngsters to provide the required fireworks.

Arshdeep Singh and Sandeep Sharma are expected to share the new ball for the team with Odean Smith expected to take up the third seamer`s spot in the playing XI. Rahul Chahar will be their main spinner with Harpret Brar expected to provide him the much-needed support in the middle overs. Nathan Ellis, Ishan Porel, and Raj Bawa are some exciting bowlers waiting up their ranks to showcase their talents.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Preview

Faf Du Plessis will lead the RCB team for this season and vast experience of captaining the international side will come in handy for the RCB team. Virat Kohli, Dinesh Karthik, and Glenn Maxwell (currently unavailable) will be their batting mainstays in the playing XI alongside Faf. They will look to fill the middle order gaps with young talents such as Mahipal Lormor, Anuj Rawat, Sherfane Rutherford, and Finn Allen in this season. All-rounders Hasaranga and Willey are expected to provide some fireworks down the order.

They have retained the pace duo of Mohammed Siraj and Harshal Patel who performed superbly in their last season. Foreign imports Josh Hazlewood, Jason behrondeff, and David Willey will add more variety and depth to the attack. Wanindu Hasaranga will lead the spin attack with the likes of Shahbaz Ahmed and Karn Sharma for company alongside batting all-rounders Maxwell and Lormor.

Weather Conditions

Mumbai will have hot and sunny weather on the match day and we expect dew to settle in the latter stages of the match causing trouble to bowlers in gripping the ball. We expect no weather interruptions in the match whatsoever.

Venue Details

DY Patil Stadium is one of the bigger grounds in the Mumbai and we expect good pace and bounce carry in the early stages of the tournament. Pacers might find the pitch helpful early with the new ball and the batters will enjoy the ball coming onto the bat nicely. We expect the average scores to be around 170-180 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Both captains will elect to field first if they win the toss as chasing is safe option in T20 matches when you are not sure of safe target and pitch conditions on offer.

RCB has a better team in terms of experience especially in the middle order when compared to the Punjab Kings. RCB has proven quality pacers who can take wickets consistently while Punjab Kings rely on young talents and new faces in this department. Both teams will be led by their new skippers and will have a fresh start to the season. Overall, we expect RCB to win this match owing to the better team composition and experienced players.

RCB will win the match
