Match Details to Note
Match: Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Lucknow Super Giants, 15th Match, Indian Premier League 2023
Date: April 10, 2023 (Monday)
Time: 7:30 PM IST
Venue: M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru
One game is about dominance, and the other is about submission. This is how RCB’s first two games can be summarized. If the openers lose early wickets, the batting order appears to be in jeopardy. For RCB, Kohli and du Plessis will bat first. Faf scored 96 runs against LSG last season, while Kohli has a strike rate of 100 in two games. However, they are in constant contact. Kohli will be our main batter to keep an eye on.
In the second game, RCB went with Bracewell at number three. The power hitter finished with 19 runs scored. RCB should bat him at number 5 to maximize his batting abilities. It has served New Zealand well. Hopefully, it will also work for RCB. Depending on the circumstances of the game, impact player Anuj Rawat could play at number three. Glenn Maxwell is struggling after returning from injury. 17 runs in the first two games suggest he may need some time to adjust to the IPL 2023. Dinesh Karthik has a 161.29 strike rate against LSG. If the top order fails, RCB will need his late-order heroics to win the game.
The RCB’s bowling attack is their weakest link. They conceded 122 runs in the last 11 overs against MI after restricting them to 48 for 4 in the first 9 overs. In contrast, against KKR, they scored 113 runs in the final 11 overs after bowling out half the opposition in the first nine. The RCB team will be led by bowler David Willey. Willey took two for sixteen and bowled a maiden over. After flying from New Zealand, Hasaranga will arrive at RCB camp on the 8th. His inclusion is debatable. With 26 wickets in 16 games in the previous IPL, Hasaranga was the second leading wicket-taker.
Faf du Plessis (c), Virat Kohli, Suyash Prabhudessai, Rajat Patidar, Dinesh Karthik, Anuj Rawat, Finn Allen, Glenn Maxwell, Wanindu Hasaranga, Shahbaz Ahmed, Harshal Patel, David Willey, Karn Sharma, Mahipal Lomror, Mohammed Siraj, Josh Hazlewood, Siddarth Kaul, Akash Deep, Reece Topley, Himanshu Sharma, Michael Bracewell, Manoj Bhandage, Rajan Kumar, Avinash Singh, Sonu Yadav
Players to watch out for:
The 34-year-old opener has been in excellent form in all formats of the game over the last 6-7 months and has carried that form into this tournament.
Faf du Plessis
A fine T20 batter, the former South African international hit four boundaries in his 12 ball stay at the crease on Thursday.
In the defeat to Kolkata Knight Riders, the England bowling all-rounder returned his best IPL figures, dismissing Venkatesh Iyer and Mandeep Singh.
Possible Playing XI:
Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis (c), Glenn Maxwell, Michael Bracewell, Shahbaz Ahmed, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Karn Sharma, Harshal Patel, Akash Deep, David Willey, Mohammed Siraj. Impact Player: Anuj Rawat
KL Rahul will be scratching his head at the prospect of facing RCB. In 13 games against his former team, the LSG captain has averaged 76.25 points. Rahul has 610 runs and a strike rate of 147.70 in 13 games. From the LSG camp, he will be the batter to watch. LSG is unsure how to involve Quinton de Kock in the team. Kyle Myers has two half-centuries in three games and a bowling economy of 7. As a result, his position on the team is secure.
Krunal Pandya performed admirably against SRH. Three wickets with the ball and 34 runs with the bat will keep his hunger alive against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. In 14 games against RCB, he has scored 152 runs and taken 12 wickets. Nicholas Pooran has 79 runs and a strike rate of 175.55 in three games.
Despite missing Mark Wood and Avesh Khan, LSG won the game. Both will be making their comebacks against RCB. Wood currently holds the Purple Cap after taking 8 wickets in two games. With the sheer pace he brings, he will be the top bowler. The spin attack will be led by Ravi Bishnoi. Bishnoi has six wickets in three games with an economy of 6.25. Amit Mishra made his LSG debut in the previous game, taking two wickets at a 5.75 economy rate. It will be interesting to see how LSG deploys their best spinners against the RCB batters, who have already lost 9 wickets to the KKR spin attack.
KL Rahul (c), Ayush Badoni, Karan Sharma, Manan Vohra, Quinton de Kock, Marcus Stoinis, Krishnappa Gowtham, Deepak Hooda, Kyle Mayers, Krunal Pandya, Avesh Khan, Mohsin Khan, Mark Wood, Mayank Yadav, Ravi Bishnoi, Nicholas Pooran, Jaydev Unadkat, Yash Thakur, Romario Shepherd, Daniel Sams, Amit Mishra, Prerak Mankad, Swapnil Singh, Naveen-ul-Haq, Yudhvir Charak
Players to watch out for:
The skipper is one of the most consistent batters in the IPL, and he needs to score 48 runs in this game to reach 4000 for the season.
Krunal Pandya won the Player of the Match award on Friday after scoring 34 runs off 23 balls and taking 3-18.
The 22-year-old spinner took Harry Brook’s wicket in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad and has six wickets this season.
Possible Playing XI:
KL Rahul (c), Kyle Mayers, Deepak Hooda, Marcus Stoinis, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Mark Wood, Krunal Pandya, Amit Mishra, Yash Thakur, Avesh Khan, Ravi Bishnoi

The stadium is known for being one of the most batting-friendly venues in India. The pitch at M Chinnaswamy Stadium is generally flat and provides fast bowlers with good bounce and carry.
