Punjab Kings Team News

Punjab Kings started their IPL 2023 campaign with a win but they have found themselves in a difficult situation after losing two consecutive games. Their fifth fixture was against LSG which finished in favour of PBKS.

Team Management will be concerned about the declining form of the batting lineup where except for skipper Shikhar Dhawan, no other player has performed well enough.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Team News

Royal Challengers Bangalore gave positive hope to its fans by winning the first fixture of the tournament, but soon they lost two consecutive games. A win against DC was a sign of positivity but RCB lost their previous fixture against CSK.

The primary concern for the RCB’s team management is the weak bowling lineup which is failing to break partnerships in every spell.
