The seventeenth installment of the Indian Premier League is all set to begin from the 22nd of March, 2024. Fans from around the globe are excited for one of the most awaited cricket tournaments of the year as RCB and PBKS will lock horns on the 25th of March, 2024 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Let's take a look at the head-to-head statistics of RCB vs PBKS.

RCB and PBKS have not tasted success yet as both teams are on the quest for their maiden IPL trophy. RCB has been finding it difficult to leave a mark on the tournament even though they have one of the strongest teams every year. Punjab Kings have a similar story. They have had the likes of players such as Yuvraj Singh, Glenn Maxwell, and several others but have failed to lift the cup even once. RCB came close to winning the trophy thrice by reaching the final in 2009, 2011, and 2016 but failed to go a step ahead as has been the case with PBKS who have only reached the final once, in 2014.

In the 16 editions of IPL so far, RCB and PBKS have faced each other for a total of 31 matches. PBKS has won 17 out of the 31 games while RCB has won 14 games. In their first encounter on 5th of May, 2008 Kings XI Punjab (Now Punjab Kings) destroyed the Royal Challengers with a victory of 6 wickets. In their encounter on the 20th of April 2023, the Royal Challengers emerged victorious by 24 runs completely dominating the Kings at the PCA Stadium in Mohali.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore is captained by Faf du Plessis while the Punjab Kings is captained by Shikhar Dhawan in IPL 2024.
