IPL 2024: Predicting Royal Challengers Bengaluru’s Playing XI for their clash against Punjab Kings 

The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are all set to face Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the 58th game of IPL 2024, which is slated to take place on May 9 at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Stadium in Dharamshala. Notably, the Faf du Plessis-led side is in the seventh spot with just four wins and seven losses from the tournament so far. However, RCB will be looking forward to working hard to make a comeback in the league to get a spot in the top four of the points table. 

Meanwhile, here is the probable playing XI of RCB ahead of their clash against PBKS.

Openers: Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis

Former RCB skipper Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis are set to open the innings against PBKS in this game. Notably, both opening batters need to make sure that their side gets a sublime start in the power plays to keep their side in the dominant position. However, Faf du Plessis was magnificent in the last clash against GT, as he hammered 64 runs from just 23 balls to help his team chase down the total with 38 balls to spare.

Batters: Will Jacks, Rajat Patidar, and Dinesh Karthik

Star batters Will Jacks and Rajat Patidar are the main batters from RCB Camp who can boost the top and middle orders of the game. Notably, Will Jacks seems to be in wonderful form, boosting the top order during the game.

In the meantime, Dinesh Karthik and Rajat Patidar may win the games on their own since they have been outstanding, particularly in the closing overs. Notably, Dinesh Karthik needs to once again show his great form for RCB to turn things around.

All-rounders: Cameron Green and Glenn Maxwell

RCB’s all-rounder, Cameron Green, is the most crucial player and one of the costliest players in IPL history. Notably, the star batter needs to prove himself in the current season as well as show his form with bat and ball in the rest of the games. However, Glenn Maxwell performed well in the ODI World Cup 2023 and did well on Indian home soil conditions, but he has yet to make an impact in the current IPL season.

Bowlers: Mohammed Siraj, Karn Sharma, Swapnil Singh, and Yash Dayal

Siraj has not played well this season, it is true, but he needs to improve since he is an important part of the Indian side going into the 2024 T20 World Cup. Notably, other bowlers also need to stand strong against PBKS’s top-class batting power.
