Cricket Free Tips | IPL 2021, Match 26: Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bangalore

There have been times in the past when Royal Challengers Bangalore went on a winning streak only to have it stop, but this year’s team seems to be different in that Virat Kohli’s men now know how to get back up after being knocked down.

When they faced Chennai Super Kings, their four-game winning streak came to an end, but instead of letting the loss dampen their spirits, they put on a fantastic performance against Delhi Capitals in their final game to secure their fifth victory. They’ll now face a team looking to make a similar comeback, as Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Punjab Kings in their most recent match.

 

Weather 

With an average temperature of approximately 38 degrees Celsius, Ahmedabad should have a hot evening. In the second inning, dew can play a role.

 

Pitch

The Narendra Modi Stadium’s wicket has been good for batters while also providing some support to spinners and pacers. As a result, another evenly matched game is possible.
