RCB vs PBKS Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Pitch Report – IPL 2024 6th match | RCB vs PBKS Dream11 Prediction Today | Bengaluru Pitch Report

Punjab Kings enjoyed a successful welcome to their new home, defeating Delhi Capitals in an efficient display on Saturday. They now travel to Bengaluru in what will be a test of their consistency: can they string wins together in 2024?

While PBKS enjoyed a nice homecoming, Royal Challengers Bengaluru endured another painful visit to Chennai. With that dreaded fixture out of the way, RCB need to get going in another season of hope for the franchise. There has been more noise around the makeup of their bowling attack – including from Tom Moody and Mitch McClenaghan – so the RCB tactics will be interesting to see.

In a game full of questions, it will be fascinating to see the answers. RCB in front of their home fans start as favourites, but anything is possible.

IPL 2024 6th Match: RCB vs PBKS Possible XIs

Do RCB persist with the team they picked for the first game or is it time for an early change? They have the option of playing two overseas seamers, but that would mean leaving Cameron Green, whom they traded in for 17.5 crore, out of the team.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru: 1. Faf du Plessis (c, OS), 2. Virat Kohli, 3. Rajat Patidar, 4. Glenn Maxwell (OS), 5. Cameron Green (OS), 6. Anuj Rawat (wk), 7. Dinesh Karthik, 8. Karn Sharma, 9. Alzarri Joseph/Reece Topley (OS), 10. Mayank Dagar, 11. Mohammed Siraj, 12. Yash Dayal

Possible Impact Player Substitute: Dinesh Karthik/Yash Dayal

PBKS enjoyed a win over Delhi Capitals, so they may stick with the same combinations.

Punjab Kings: 1. Shikhar Dhawan (c), 2. Jonny Bairstow (OS), 3. Prabhsimran Singh, 4. Sam Curran (OS), 5. Jitesh Sharma (wk), 6. Liam Livingstone (OS), 7. Shashank Singh, 8. Harpreet Brar, 9. Harshal Patel, 10. Kagiso Rabada (OS), 11. Rahul Chahar, 12. Arshdeep Singh

Possible Impact Player Substitute: Arshdeep Singh/Prabhsimran Singh

Fantasy Cricket Tips for the 6th match of IPL 2024: Key Players to Watch/Stats for RCB vs PBKS

Royal Challengers Bengaluru:

  • Virat Kohli has the most runs among active players in RCB-PBKS matches (861). He averages 31.89 with a strike rate of 127.74.
  • Kohli has good numbers against Arshdeep Singh (44 off 23 balls, no dismissal) and Harshal Patel (43 off 27 balls, one dismissal).
  • Faf du Plessis looked very good in the opening game against CSK. The skipper struck 35 off 23 balls.
  • Since the start of 2022, du Plessis has smashed 182 runs against PBKS at an average of 60.67 and strike rate of 150.41. In fact, du Plessis’ career record against PBKS is outstanding: 16 inns, 842 runs, avg. 60.14, SR 145.93.
  • Glenn Maxwell missed out against CSK but he can fire at any stage. The all-rounder has a strike rate of 181.89 in 15 T20s at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
  • Cameron Green should enjoy batting on this ground given the success he had at the batting-friendly Wankhede last season. He can also chip in with wickets, making him a useful fantasy pick.
  • Mohammed Siraj is the leader of the RCB attack. He has picked eight wickets in eight matches against PBKS since 2018 at an expensive economy of 10.67.
  • Siraj vs Shikhar Dhawan in T20s: 27 balls, 35 runs, one dismissal.

Punjab Kings:

  • Jonny Bairstow has strong numbers against RCB (4 inns, 253 runs, avg. 63.25, SR 179.43) and against Mohammed Siraj (20 balls, 46 runs, no dismissal).
  • Shikhar Dhawan has 720 career runs against RCB at an average of 32.73 and strike rate of 123.29.
  • It may seem PBKS have found the right position for Sam Curran with the bat. The all-rounder won player of the match against DC for his 63 off 47 balls.
  • Liam Livingstone is mighty dangerous at the Chinnaswamy against an inexperienced RCB attack. The Englishman strikes at 162.50 in three matches vs RCB.
  • PBKS will bank on Kagiso Rabada against Virat Kohli. Rabada has dismissed the star batsman four times for 42 runs in 40 balls in T20s. The pacer has also dismissed Maxwell three times for 41 runs in 30 balls.
  • Rabada has a very impressive 16 wickets in seven career matches against RCB.

M Chinnaswamy Stadium Bengaluru Pitch Report and Weather

Flat pitch and short boundaries. A graveyard for bowlers, especially at the death. So, the key will be early wickets and try to stifle momentum.

The average first innings score in seven matches last season was a high 195.57. The team batting first won four of those games.

Temperatures will hover around 30 degrees with a chance of dew.
