Homeboy KL Rahul is returning to Bangalore with his table-topping team. Royal Challengers Banglore will host Lucknow Super Giants in the 15th game of the IPL at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium on 10th April from 7:30 pm onwards. LSG have 2 wins in 3 games, while RCB has one win and a loss in their first two games.
Shardul Tahkur’s late heroics stunned Royal Challengers Banglore at Eden Gardens after having a dominating position in the game. Batting first, KKR were reduced to 89 for losing 5 wickets. But Thakur took the things in his hand to score 68 off 29 balls against the weak RCB bowling attack. David Willey and Karn Sharma took 2 wickets each from RCB. Chasing 205, RCB struggled throughout the innings and eventually got out on 123 to lose the game by 81 runs.
Lucknow Super Giants brought Sunrisers Hyderabad to their knees in a bowling-dominated affair. Bowling first, LSG restricted SRH to 121. Playing in the absence of Mark Wood and Avesh Khan, LSG bowlers, especially Krunal Pandya, showed a superb bowling display. Senior Pandya took three wickets for 18 runs. KL Rahul and Pandya then scored 35 and 34 runs, respectively, to guide their team to win by 5 wickets in the 16th over of the game.
Both teams have played two games in the last IPL, including the Eliminator. In the first game, RCB defended 181 runs, thanks to du Plessis’ 96, to win the game by 18 runs. Josh Hazelwood took 4 wickets in the game. In the eliminator, Rajat Patidar scored a century to set a target of 208 for LSG. Skipper KL Rahul’s 79 runs went in vain as LSG fell short of the target by 14 runs and got knocked out of the IPL.
KL Rahul averages 76.25 against RCB.
One game with dominance and another with submission. RCB’s first two games can summarize this way. Looks like, if the openers lose early wickets, then the batting order might crumble. Kohli and du Plessis will open the innings for RCB. Faf has scored 96 runs in the last season against LSG, while Kohli’s strike rate in two games is 100. But both of them are in great touch. Kohli will be our top batter to watch out for.
RCB opted to go with Bracewell in the second game at number three. The power hitter ended up scoring 19 runs. To optimize his batting skills, RCB should send him at number 5. It has worked for New Zealand. Hopefully, it will work for RCB too. Impact player Anuj Rawat might play at number three based on the game's situation. Glenn Maxwell is having a tough time after coming out of injury. 17 runs in the first two games indicate he might take time to gel with the IPL 2023. Dinesh Karthik has a strike rate of 161.29 against LSG. His late-order heroics are necessary for RCB to win the game if the top-order crumbles.
RCB’s bowling unit is their weakest link. Against MI, they conceded 122 runs in the last 11 overs after restricting MI to 48 for 4 in the first 9 overs. Whereas, against KKR, they went for 113 runs in the last 11 overs after bowling out half the opposition in the first 9 overs. David Willey will be the bowler from the RCB side. Willey took 2 for 16, bowling a maiden over. Hasaranga will join RCB camp on the 8th after flying from New Zealand. His inclusion is in doubt. Hasaranga was the second leading wicket-taker in the last IPL with 26 wickets in 16 games.
Key Players: Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis, David Willey.

KL Rahul will be scratching his hands to go against RCB. The LSG skipper averages 76.25 in 13 games against his former franchise. Rahul has scored 610 runs in 13 games at a strike rate of 147.70. He will be the batter to watch out for from LSG camp. LSG is confused about how to get Quinton de Kock involved in the team. Kyle Myers has scored 2 half-centuries in three games and has also bowled at an economy of 7. So his position is safe in the team.
Krunal Pandya had a great game against SRH. Three wickets with the ball and 34 runs with the bat will keep his hunger going against RCB. He has scored 152 runs and has taken 12 wickets in 14 games against RCB. Nicholas Pooran has scored 79 runs in three games at a strike rate of 175.55.
LSG was without Mark Wood and Avesh Khan, yet managed to win the game. Both of them will be returning against RCB. Wood is holding the Purple Cap with 8 wickets in 2 games. He will be the top bowler with the sheer pace he is bringing. Ravi Bishnoi will lead the spin attack. Bishnoi has taken 6 wickets in 3 games at an economy of 6.25. Amit Mishra debuted for LSG in the last game claiming 2 wickets at an economy of 5.75. It will be interesting to see how LSG brings the best spinners against RCB batters, who lost 9 wickets to the KKR spin attack.
Key Players: KL Rahul, Mark Wood, Nicolas Pooran.

The weather will be clear. The temperature will range between 20 and 33. The wind will be flowing from the west at 10-25 kmh. The stadium has a reputation for being one of the most batting-friendly grounds in India. The pitch at M Chinnaswamy Stadium is generally flat and offers good bounce and carry to the fast bowlers. The outfield is usually quick, and the ball travels well, which makes it an ideal venue for high-scoring games.
The pitch at M Chinnaswamy Stadium is known to assist spinners in the game's later stages. The pitch tends to wear out quickly, and the spinners get significant turns and bounce, making it difficult for batsmen to score freely. However, the early overs of the game can be quite favorable for the batsmen as the ball comes onto the bat nicely.
The 15th T20 of the IPL 2023 will be played at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium on 10th April from 7:30 pm onwards. The venue holds a capacity of 40000 spectators and has hosted 25 Tests, 37 ODIs & 16 T20Is so far. India has scored 202 runs (highest total) against England here.
In 16 T20Is, the team batting second has won the game on 9 occasions, while the team batting first has won 6 times. 6 out of the last 8 IPL games have been chased down at this venue. The team winning the toss should bowl first.
It’s RCB's home ground. They have 4 wins in the last 6 games at this venue. The stats favor RCB as they have won all their games against LSG, including one at the same venue. But LSG is coming with back-to-back wins. KL Rahul loves to play against RCB. Mark Wood will be returning. Though Kohli and du Plessis love to play against pace, they struggle against spin. If LSG brings Sr. Pandya, Amit Mishra, and Ravi Bishnoi to the party, RCB will struggle to hold the fort.
Perhaps, Wanindu Hasaranga’s availability might change the table in favor of RCB.
We predict that Lucknow Super Giants will defeat Royal Challengers Bangalore.
