RCB in IPL 2022: Having put up complete performances in their last two games, RCB seemed to have figured out their best combination.

Barring Virat Kohli, all of their batters are in top form with uncapped Rajat Patidar and Mahipal Lomror complementing seasoned pros like skipper Faf du Plessis, Glenn Maxwell and Dinesh Karthik, who has been among the best finishers in the tournament alongside Gujarat’s Rahul Tewatia.

The bowling packs a punch too in the presence of in-form pacers Josh Hazlewood and the ever-reliable Harshal Patel. Mohammad Siraj has not been at his best but trust him to deliver when the team wants it the most.

Maxwell has been handy with his off-spin, both in powerplay and middle overs, while Wanindu Hasaranga is among the leading wicket-takers in the tournament with 21 scalps including a five-wicket haul.

Kohli, who is in the middle of his worst IPL season, is due for an impact knock and that could come against Punjab. A win on Friday would take RCB to 16 points though 18 seems to be a safe number for a play-off berth.

PBKS in IPL 2022: Punjab, who have three games left, need to win all to have a shot at the top-four finish. They had started their campaign with a win over RCB and are on 10 points with five wins and six losses.

The fact that they have not been able to win two games in a row sums up their inconsistent run.

Shikhar Dhawan and Bhanuka Rajapaksa have delivered at the top, so has Liam Livingstone and Jitesh Sharma in finishing the innings. Jonny Bairstow finally got runs after being promoted to open the innings alongside Dhawan.

Skipper Mayank Agarwal, who has moved himself down the order, needs to lead from the front.

On the bowling front, Sandeep Sharma has been tidy but could do with some wickets in the powerplay. Lead pacer Kagiso Rabada has done well to take 18 wickets but has gone for close to 9 runs per over.

Arshdeep Singh has been brilliant, especially in the death overs, and has impressed many with his ability to land yorkers at will.

Despite a solid squad at their disposal, Punjab have flattered to deceive and they must raise their game before it is too late yet again.

IPL 2022 Playoff Race:

Punjab Kings (8th, 10 Points): Punjab Kings are on the verge of elimination. Their 6-wicket loss against Rajasthan Royals dented their hopes. They need to win all three remaining matches to be in the hunt and have to win big to improve NRR. But even after winning all three games, they can be eliminated.

  • PBKS have to win all three remaining matches.
  • PBKS will also have to improve their NRR which stands at -0.231.
  • Two wins in three matches or 14 points won’t be enough for them to qualify.
  • PBKS Remaining Matches: RCB, DC, SRH

Royal Challengers Bangalore (4th, 14 Points): Faf du Plessis’ Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) clinched a much-needed win over the Sunrisers Hyderabad to boost their qualification hopes. The 67-run thrashing also boosted their poor NRR keeping them in contention for the spot in the top 4.

  • RCB need to win all of their two remaining games to seal playoff spot.
  • RCB can qualify with 1 wins in 2 matches but or 16 points but other results will have to go their way.
  • If they win one out of two, they may crash out if SRH and DC win their remaining games.
  • RCB Remaining Matches: PBKS, GT
