Punjab vs Bangalore in Indian T20 League

This is a contest between two sides that can be called the most inconsistent teams in the Indian T20 Premier League. Both Bangalore and Punjab have not managed to reach the playoffs in the last 3 seasons of the Indian T20 Premier League. However, when it comes to playing each other, both have performed consistently by winning 12 matches each in the 24 encounters they have had. With both the teams adding quite a few new players to their roster, it should be interesting to see who pips the other.

Punjab has not had a great record to be honest, with only one appearance in the finals and only two playoff qualifications. On the other hand, Bangalore has qualified for the playoffs 4 times out of which they made it to the finals three times (but only to lose all of them).

The Punjab franchise spent a whopping ₹ 10.75 crores on the Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, so naturally, there is some pressure on him to deliver the goods. Captain K L Rahul has been performing well in international cricket and he will again be the key to Punjab’s fortunes just like the last two seasons. In the bowling department, Mohammad Shami and Sheldon Cottrell will lead the charge alongside Mujeeb Ur Rahman.

For Bangalore, players apart from Virat Kohli and De Villiers have to step up in the batting department. The new recruits Aaron Finch and Joshua Philippe should add strength to the line-up. However, it is Bangalore’s bowling that has always let them down. Chris Morris and Dale Steyn do bring a lot of experience but age is not in their favour.
