Cricket Free Tips | IPL 2021, Match 48: Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Punjab Kings

The Indian T20 League’s match 48 will pit Bangalore and Punjab against one another. After losing two consecutive games in the UAE leg, the Virat Kohli-led team finally got back on track. In their previous match, they defeated Rajasthan by seven wickets.

On the other hand, Punjab displayed a great spirit to defeat Kolkata and keep their prospects of reaching the play-offs alive. Because the play-off race is already hot, both clubs will be eager to win this game, making it an exciting match to watch.

 

Weather
With an average temperature of roughly 37°C, it should be a hot and humid day in Sharjah. 

 

Pitch
The Sharjah wicket hasn’t been terrific for batsmen and has been a little sluggish. While there’s a chance that a new strip will be used for this match, it shouldn’t be too different from what we’ve seen before. 155-160 is a challenging total due to the explosive style of both teams’ batting.
