Indian T20 League 2024

PUN vs BLR, 58th Match

 

Preview

In this ‘Do or Die’ battle, Bengaluru will square off against Punjab which is well anticipated to be an enthralling encounter to look for. The 58th match of the ongoing Indian T20 League has a lot of conditions for both sides to qualify for the playoffs. The team that faces defeat in this match might crash out of the tournament while the side winning would still be alive in the Playoffs race. 

The game is set to be hosted at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamshala on Thursday, May 9. Both sides would be desperate to hunt down those two points to keep their hopes alive. Both teams have four wins and seven losses in their 11 matches. Though Bengaluru has a better net run rate, they sit at a position higher than Punjab. Faf and boys are in the 7th position whereas Sam Curran and co occupy the 8th place in the points table. 

Both sides have their own pros and cons. While Punjab has repeatedly failed to get enough contributions from renowned T20 specialists like Sam Curran, Rilee Rosouw, and Jitesh Sharma, Bengaluru has the services of Cameron Green and GlennMaxwell who have not been in their best of form till now. The winner of this game will secure their place in the 7th position in the points table but their qualifying chances for the Playoffs would still be very thin.

Pitch and Weather Report

The HPCA Stadium will assist the bowlers as it produces good swing and bounce. This is usually not considered as a high-scoring venue and the average score here has been 155 in T20s. The stadium is situated at a very high altitude, and that is why dew is another important factor here.

The weather will be pleasant on Thursday and the temperatures will be at 24 degrees Celsius. The wind speed will be at 10 kmph and the humidity will be at 55 per cent.

Match Prediction

Punjab have shown signs of development over the last few weeks but were flaws in their batting side which we have seen in their last match. Bengaluru are a team of big hitters and their powerful batting lineup would surely deliver again in this game. Also, Faf Du Plessis and Co have won their last three matches and hence we predict Bengaluru to beat Punjab in Thursday’s match.
