RCB’s IPL 2021 playoffs qualification scenariosRoyal Challengers Bangalore only need a won in its last three matches to qualify for the playoffs as Kolkata and Mumbai have lost their recent matches. Three wins in as many matches will give RCB a chance to finish among the top two if CSK or DC slip up in their last couple of matches. However, if the RCB loses all three remaining matches, the Virat Kohli-led side could be eliminated given four teams could end up on 14 points, vying for two qualification spots.

IPL 2021, Match 48, RCB vs PBKS PITCH REPORT
Here's what Mathew Hayden said during pitch report
There is a strong breeze, and the temperature has dropped significantly. Slower deliveries off the back of a length have accounted for 43 percent of the wickets taken by seamers. When hitting down the ground as a batsman, the slowness of the wickets causes them to lose their shape. On one side, the boundary is also quite large. It'll be a 130-wicket match, a war of attrition, and I'm interested to watch how the batters respond to these unfavourable conditions.

RCB vs PBKS LIVE | Punjab Kings team news
Punjab Kings, on the other hand, will again rely on their trusted opening duo of skipper KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal to provide them a flying start.
They were among the runs against KKR, and will look to do an encore against RCB.
The biggest plus for Punjab Kings heading into the RCB game is their death bowling that paved the way for their win in the last match.
Mohammed Shami and Arshdeep Singh's two incisive overs at the death went a long way in setting up Punjab's victory against KKR, and the team would hope for a similar outing from the two against RCB.
RCB vs PBKS LIVE | Royal Challengers Bangalore team news (batting)
Even though he didn't go on to make a big score, Virat Kohli looked good during his stay in the middle in his team's victory over Rajasthan Royals, as did the skipper's young opening partner Devdutt Padikkal.
Both of them played some cracking shots before the in-form star all-rounder Glenn Maxwell completed the job with his second straight half-century.
If the situation demands, like in their last outing, Maxwell can again afford to look at Srikar Bharat to build a solid partnership in the middle overs.
Batting down the order this season, AB de Villiers provides RCB the kind of cushion the other teams lack, and Punjab Kings are well aware of this fact.

PREVIEW | RCB eye playoffs berth against Punjab Kings
Royal Challengers Bangalore will look to inch closer to securing a playoff berth when they clash with Punjab Kings in their Indian Premier League match here on Sunday.
Eyeing their first IPL title triumph, RCB are currently placed third in the pecking order with seven wins and four defeats for a total of 14 points.
Another two points from a win will almost assure them of a place in the place-offs but for that, RCB will need to put it across Punjab Kings who are coming off a morale-boosting win against Kolkata Knight Riders.
With their five-wicket victory over KKR, Punjab Kings too kept alive their prospects of making the playoffs, even though they are down at fifth position with 12 points after five wins and seven reverses.
Up against an ambitious RCB outfit, Punjab Kings will have their task cut out at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
