- RCB will reach play-offs if they beat Punjab Kings
- With 10 points each, it is crucial for Kolkata and Punjab
- RCB expects victory in batting and bowling
If RCB wins by 14 points in 11 games, they can secure the play-offs. With only 10 points, Punjab needs a win. The game will be great as both teams are confident of winning the final match. RCB captain Virat Kohli and Punjab captain KL Rahul are in good shape. One or two changes can be expected in both teams.
Kolkata also needs to win the match. The fact that Hyderabad’s opponents are weak increases KKR’s chances. But Hyderabad, which comes in with nothing to lose, is expected to surprise its opponents. Kolkata and Hyderabad failed to win the last match. KKR will have a chance to play if they beat Hyderabad.
