Royal Challengers Bangalore face Punjab Kings to advance to Indian Premier League Round of 16

The Indian Premier League is the highlight of the cricketing calendar for thousands of fans around the world, as the extravagant and exuberant competition delivers an unprecedented level of excitement and intensity.

Two new franchises have joined the 2022 tournament: the Gujarat Titans and Lucknow SuperGiants, led by Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul respectively. Not only is it their first year in the competition, but they also top the standings with just 14 games left in the group stage.

Jos Buttler has been the standout performer in this year’s tournament so far, lighting up the stage with a total of three centuries, three 50s and 37 sixes.

But as we prepare for the Royal Challengers Bangalore taking on the Punjab Kings, here’s what their combined dream team could look like.

When is RCB vs PBKS?

The two teams meet today, Friday May 13, 2022, and the game is due to start at 3:00 p.m. BST. The game will be available to watch on Sky Sports.

captain

Despite being 37 years old, Faf du Plessis is still one of the greatest outfield players of all time and is currently his team’s top scorer.

Du Plessis is currently the captain of the Bangalore Royal Challengers and has recorded 389 points with an average of 35.36.

He got a high score of 96 and has a lot of experience captaining a team. The 2019 South African Cricketer of the Year previously captained his country from 2017 until his retirement announcement in 2021.

vice captain

The English all-rounder shot to fame at last year’s The Hundred tournament when he led his team – Birmingham Phoenix – to the final, becoming the tournament’s top scorer.

He is currently the Punjab Kings’ second highest points scorer with 315 points and has also added value with his ability to play both as a leg and off-spinner.

Kagiso Rabada for South Africa

Safe bets

South Africa’s star bowler is proving just as destructive as his opponents feared. He has won 18 wickets in his 10 games for the Punjab Kings and is confident he will make a difference in the deathmatch.

It can consistently cruise around 90 mph and is currently on an IPL average of 17.94 for 2022.

At 36, Dinesh Karthik seems to be at the top of his game in the limited overs tournament.

As the RCB’s number five and wicketkeeper, Karthik also shot 274 with an average of 68.50 – one of the highest averages in this year’s tournament.

When his first players are away, he is sure to provide phenomenal support for his team.

Conflicts

Jonny Bairstow abandoned this dream team in favor of the versatile West Indian Odean Smith.

Bairstow has been in mixed form the past few months but still managed 136 points in eight games.

However, Smith can deliver much more power and strength with the racquet and the ball. In the tournament so far, his best numbers are 4/30 while he also enjoys a batting average of 17.00.

Jitesh Sharma is also a case of conflict. He has played superbly for the Punjab Kings so far but his wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik has the advantage.

Sharma would be a great addition to the batting team should Shabhez Ahmed get injured, but as far as wicket-keepers go, there was a very clear winner.
