RCB vs PBKS: Virat and Maxwell ready to create havoc, Bengaluru's pitch is very good

The Indian Premier League's sixth game pits Punjab Kings against Royal Challengers Bangalore. On their home pitch, Faf du Plessis and company would like to triumph. Punjab Kings, on the other hand, would like to continue their winning run. This Holi match could see a tonne of sixes hit the net. Bengaluru's pitch is generally favourable to batsmen; during the most recent Indian Premier League season, Glenn Maxwell, Faf Du Plessis, and Virat Kohli all produced significant, aggressive innings here.

When M Chinnaswamy Stadium was finished in 1969, it had all kinds of contemporary amenities. Approximately forty thousand people can watch the match at once here. So far 18 T20 International matches have been played on this ground and in 8 matches the team batting first has faced defeat. Even though this pitch is not particularly favourable for bowlers, the pacers have claimed 58 wickets and the spinners have taken 53.

In the second innings, this pitch gets easier for the batsmen to use. The batsmen can play big shots freely because of the short boundary when the ball comes into contact with them. Bengaluru's final game on this field came against the Mumbai Indians during the previous season. Bengaluru's aggressive innings from Kohli and Duplessis helped them reach the match's target of 172 runs in 22 balls. When Punjab's team last competed here in 2019, they were defeated by a margin of 17 runs.
