Punjab Kings Will Face Royal Challengers Bangalore In Game 3 Of IPL

The Punjab Kings will face Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the third match of the IPL 2022 at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai. Both teams are yet to win the IPL trophy despite being part of the tournament since its inception and are hoping for a head start this year. Punjab, in particular, has not reached the playoffs in a long time now. They named Mayank Agarwal as their new captain of the team and some of the best additions to the squad.

Royal Challengers Bangalore, on the other hand, took Faf du Plessis from the tent list and named him franchise captain. They will not get the help of AB de Villiers, who has retired from all forms of cricket but still has players like Glenn Maxwell and former captain Virat Kohli. In addition, they have added Dinesh Karthik to the team to do finishing work. However, Kohli will remain a franchise talisman and the RCB will want him to have a good season.

The third match of the Indian Premier League 2022 will start today (27th March) on 7:30 pm. The game will be played on Navi Mumbai’s Dr. D.Y. Patil Sports Academy. As far as weather is concerned the game will not be interrupted by rain. We might get to see some dew in the second inning of the game.

Pitch Report

The Navi Mumbai pitch will provide equal competition between bat and ball as the wicket has been really good for batting so far in the games that have been played. The captain that wins the toss will be looking to chase without doubts, considering there could be due later on.

Players to watch out for in RCB

Faf du Plessis is ready to lead the Royal Challengers Bangalore Franchise next season and will play a major role in the title. The right-hander finished second in the orange race last year but this time will be playing for a different team and much will be left on his shoulders. The 37-year-old has the ability to play match-winning knocks and can do a lot of damage in the middle overs.

Mohammad Siraj had a good IPL season last year and used the new ball to his advantage in powerplay. He has been kept before the big auction this year and the right-arm tailor can also beat the yorkers after innings and his ability to take wickets. He is likely to lead the swing attack in the absence of Josh Hazlewood. Let him not forget that for the past two years he has been riding confidently.
