The 26th match of IPL 2021 will be played on Friday between Punjab Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore. The team led by Virat Kohli has done well. Bangalore has won five of their six matches. They will try to win today’s match and reach the top in the point table. Talking about Punjab Kings, the team has lost in 4 out of 6 matches. Punjab Kings will try to improve their performance in the tournament by winning the match.
Talking about the playing eleven of Punjab, Punjab can make two changes in its playing eleven in comparison to today. Punjab could replace David Malan in the playing eleven in place of Nicholas Pooran, who is battling poor form. KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have been replaced as openers by the team. Deepak Hooda, Chris Gayle, Shah Rukh Khan’s playing XI seems to be in place. Fabian Allen and Moises Henriques could be included in the team once again. Mohammed Shami will lead the pace bowling. Ishan Porel may get a chance in Punjab’s playing eleven in place of Chris Jordan. Ishan Porel has not made his IPL debut yet.
Talking about the playing eleven of Royal Challengers Bangalore, it is difficult to make any change in the team of Bangalore. Yuzvendra Chahal’s form is a matter of concern for RCB, but captain Virat Kohli would not like to keep him out of the playing XI. RCB hardly tamper with their playing XI against Punjab Kings.
