Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Punjab Kings Match 60 – Players to Watch
Faf du Plessis
The RCB skipper has led from the front this season and has instilled an IPL-winning mentality in the side. He has imparted his CSK experience to the lineup and will be hoping that the squad can put in a performance in the last few group stage games and get the team into the playoffs. He has played a role with the bat as well, scoring 389 runs from 12 games, and is currently the fourth-highest run-scorer in the tournament so far. We expect to see Faf lead from the front yet again in this must-win game against the Punjab Kings.
The Sri-Lankan all-rounder has been the signing of the season for the RCB so far. His crafty bowling has enabled him to utterly dismantle the batting lineup of the opposition and with 21 wickets from 12 games, he is currently the second-highest wicket-taker in the tournament and is firmly in the race to win the purple cap. He may not be the best with the bat, but his contributions with the ball will be much required against the Punjab Kings.
He is a bowler who has worked diligently in the shadows and with 18 wickets from 10 games, he is the joint third-highest wicket-taker in the tournament. The performance of the Punjab Kings has not really shone the limelight on his efforts but he is a crucial cog in the lineup and the Kings will be looking to him for early breakthroughs against a formidable RCB batting lineup.
The all-rounder has been one of the stand-out players for the Punjab Kings this season and will be a player we expect to see firing on all cylinders against the RCB bowling attack. So far in the tournament, he has amassed 315 runs from 11 matches and a big knock here will leapfrog him right into the fight for the orange cap. The RCB bowlers have been on form recently and Liam will have to dig deep and retain his wicket in order to help get his team across the line and into the playoffs.
