Post image
LSG vs RCB: No better team than Lucknow Super Giants when it comes to power hitting in the IPL 2023. Royal Challengers Banglore have been inconsistent, their dependency on top three has kept them inconsistent, it appears that they are playing with only 10 players.

In the current points table, LSG sits at second position with 10 points while RCB has slipped to 6th position with 8 points. So, every match for Banglore is as crucial as their hopes for qualification.

Plenty of power hitters will be on show tonight, but on this pitch, only quality and skillful batters will succeed. Let’s take a look at 3 names who can make an impact in today’s game:

KL Rahul

Two half centuries so far on this ground for KL Rahul, his team has done superbly but his bat has been quite in this season except a few innings. Also, he loves to bat in tough conditions, and surley the pitch of Lucknow has been a challenging wicket for batters.

As he is one of the best batters who can play spin quite nicely, it can be the day for him. It rarely happens when a few innings pass by, and we don’t see KL Rahul scoring big runs so today could be his day.

Faf Du Plessis

The form Faf Du Plessis is in, he will definitely play a big innings for his team. Especially on the Lucknow wicket, Banglore will need to accumulate decent runs in the power play and nobody has bossed powerplay better than Du Plessis this year.

He is already the top scorer of IPL 2023 but in the last innings, he couldn’t get going and apparently RCB lost the match. Du Plessis knows how important his batting is for the team, because he is someone who can provide solid foundation.

Dinesh Karthik

Failures after failures have left Karthik in uncanny situation, his team is going nowhere of he keeps batting like that. Like a player who stands up in demanding situation, Karthik will definitely bring his best game tonight against LSG.

Last year, Dinesh Karthik played an impetus providing 23 balls 37 runs innings against LSG. Something similar can come up tonight when he comes to bat, because on this track of Lucknow, RCB’s middle order will definitely be tested.

Lucknow Super Giants are playing bold game, a match ago they failed to chase 135 against GT. Then in the next match, they posted 257 on board. When the power hitters flex their muscles, everything looks good in LSG batting line-up.

For RCB, the tournament has been bitter sweet. Virat Kohli has played a few good knocks but he hasn’t won any game for the team. That has been done by only Faf Du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell, the over dependedcy has definitely choked their team performance.

The match LSG vs RCB will be played at Atal Bihari Vajpayee Stadium, Lucknow at 7:30 PM IST.
