After the doubleheader weekend, on Monday, Royal Challengers Bangalore will be hosting Lucknow Super Giants at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in IPL 2023. Both the teams are in a close contest in the point table with an equal number of points but separated by the difference in net run rate.
Royal Challengers Bangalore started off well but their performance derailed in the next fixture against KKR. The team will be motivated to bounce back and get back to the winning ways.
Lucknow Super Giants came out on top in the first game against Delhi Capitals but failed to impress in the next fixture against Chennai Super Kings. The top bookmakers in India have fantastic IPL odds with them.
After a dominating start in the first game, RCB failed to impress against KKR. After winning the toss, the decision to field first worked against them and the bowlers turned out to be expensive in the game. Expectations were high from the batters after their dominating display in the first game, but it was shocking to see none of them were able to maintain a strong partnership.
Skipper Faf du Plessis won’t be making any changes in the team.
Predicted Lineup: Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis (c), Glenn Maxwell, Michael Bracewell, Shahbaz Ahmed, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Karn Sharma, Harshal Patel, Akash Deep, Reece Topley, Mohammed Siraj.
Skipper KL Rahul and his boys started their IPL 2023 campaign with a win against Delhi Capitals but lost the track in the next game. The primary concern for the team management will be about the weak bowling. Mark Wood picked up three wickets but he displayed an economy of 12.25. Ravi Bishnoi also picked up three wickets and his economy was 7.00.
Nicholas Pooran, Ravi Bishnoi, and Mark Wood will be in the spotlight again because of their previous performances.
Predicted Lineup: Avesh Khan, Nicholas Pooran, Kyle Mayers, KL Rahul, Ayush Badoni, Marcus Stoinis, Ravi Bishnoi, Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, Mark Wood, Jaydev Unadkat
We are in for a thrilling fixture between the two teams. Both the teams have a good batting depth, but RCB has an advantage over LSG in the pace bowling. We predict a win for RCB in the upcoming fixture.
