RCB VS Punjab preview
It is the most awaited contest after the tournament has started.RCB, always fancied team will take on Punjab which is has won many fans in this edition. RCB star-studded batting line up collapsed for seventy in their previous game would like win it big this time. Absence of Chris Gayle is clearly felt but, they have great batting line up with Virat, ABD, Yuvraj.
Punjab is still to beat team in the tournament is looking more balanced and morale is very high at this juncture. Their overseas players are at their best and bailey leading them good. Three of four overseas players are from Australia. Maxwell is in sublime form, reverse seeping all the time successfully is clearly star of the tournament so far, Miller is calm coming down the order and doing damage in the shade of Maxwell. Bailey hasn’t had great tournament but wouldn’t mind if Punjab is winning .Mitchell Johnson is a class player, maybe he didn’t start as he would have wanted but will surely pick up his stats.
RCB coming in to this game after two loses. One was unlucky from their perspective in the game against KKR as Chris Lynn pulled off a blinder at the fence, but their last game left them is dismay. None of the batsmen apart from Virat looked comfortable in the last game.ABD was out for a duck and yet to make his mark in this tournament. Bowling is their weak link but they managed more than expectation in th department so far. Varun Aaron took consistent being economical. Chahal is a new discovery this season and performed so far so good .
