PBKS vs RCB Dream11 Prediction: Two bottom-half sides Punjab Kings and Royal Challengers Bengaluru target two big points in the 58th match of Indian Premier League 2024 at Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala on Thursday.

Shikhar Dhawan-less Punjab Kings suffered their seventh defeat of the season after a heavy 28-run loss against Chennai Super Kings in the last game. Punjab are currently placed eighth in the points table with just four wins in eleven matches and need a win against RCB to remain in contention for the playoff qualification.

Faf du Plessis-led Royal Challengers Bengaluru continued their resurgence with their third successive victory after beating Gujarat Titans in their last game. Bengaluru's first win of the season came against Punjab Kings at home and will enter the reverse fixture as clear favourites.
