====================================================================================

Punjab have lost three matches on the trot and are currently languishing at sixth place. Shaun Marsh will be crucial to their success in this match and the rest of the tournament as will be the explosive David Miller. Bowling wise Praveen Kumar and Piyush Chawla have been good but have not been very consistent. They will be looking to put up a strong performance in their backyard this evening to better their chances of remaining alive in the tournament.

Royal Challengers Bangalore are a formidable side under the able and aggressive leadership of Virat Kolhi. They have stars like Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers and Moises Henriques who have the ability post and also chase down any total. Bowling has been a bit of a concern for RCB with Vinay Kumar and RP Singh not performing to expectations on a consistent basis.
