The third match of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) has Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) taking on Punjab Kings (PBKS) at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday.
Punjab Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore will lock horns in the second match of Sunday’s IPL 2022 double-header. Despite KL Rahul and Ravi Bishnoi leaving the franchise, PBKS had a brilliant auction, signing the likes of Shikhar Dhawan and Liam Livingstone. RCB, meanwhile, will begin a new era under the leadership of Faf du Plessis. Like their opponents, RCB also had to make do with some key player departures with clever acquisitions. Although both teams look evenly-matched on paper, Punjab will fancy their chances, owing to a strong batting unit. With two valuable points up for grabs, a potential thriller beckons at the DY Patil Stadium on Sunday.

A competitive track awaits the two sides with help available for both the pacers and spinners. The batters will look to make full use of the conditions in the powerplay overs, with the hard new ball likely to skid nicely on to the bat. As the match progresses, the pitch could slow down, allowing the bowlers to vary their pace to good effect. Both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss, with dew expected to play a role in the second half of the match.
