LSG vs RCB Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Pitch Report IPL 2023 Match 43 | LKN vs RCB Dream11 Prediction Today | Lucknow Pitch Report

Win and make ground. Lose and risk falling behind. Those are the stakes in what is an even points table in a fascinating IPL 2023 tournament.

After two successful 200+ chases yesterday, Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) meet Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in a crucial clash in the logjam. Should RCB win, they will go level on points with LSG, which has added importance given their much inferior net run rate of -0.447. However, to do so, RCB need more from those not named du Plessis, Kohli, Maxwell and Siraj.

LSG come into this game after smashing the second-highest total in IPL history. The middle order had an outing to remember against Punjab, with Stoinis, Pooran and co. reminding all of their incredible power. In fact, it was Stoinis and Pooran who demolished RCB in the middle overs earlier this year, and LSG will be aiming to do so again against a Bangalore bowling attack that has largely struggled outside the powerplay.

Match Details

  • Location: Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow.
  • Time: 7:30pm (IST).

IPL 2023 Match 43: LSG vs RCB Possible Playing XIs

Marcus Stoinis is in some doubt for this match after he injured his finger against Punjab. The reports suggest it doesn’t seem to be too serious, but the short turnaround means he may miss this match.

Lucknow Super Giants (possible Impact Player in bold italic): 1. KL Rahul (c), 2. Kyle Mayers (OS), 3. Ayush Badoni, 4. Marcus Stoinis/Quinton de Kock (OS), 5. Nicholas Pooran (wk) (OS), 6. Krunal Pandya, 7. Deepak Hooda, 8. Naveen-ul-Haq, 9. Ravi Bishnoi, 10. Avesh Khan, 11. Yash Thakur, 12. Amit Mishra

Josh Hazlewood is expected to play for RCB. Also, Faf du Plessis and Harshal Patel may swap as impact players once again given their respective rib and finger injuries.

IPL 2023 43rd match LKN vs RCB fantasy tips: Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Lucknow Super Giants:

  • Will this be KL Rahul’s day? RCB is one of his favourite opponents. He has scored 628 runs against them at an average of 69.78 and strike rate of 145.03.
  • Rahul vs Siraj will be key. In 53 deliveries, Rahul has struck 96 runs against the seamer, dismissed once.
  • Nicholas Pooran blew RCB away earlier this season. He smashed one of the fastest fifties in IPL history. In all T20s, he has scored 70 off 41 against Harshal Patel (one dismissal).
  • Kyle Mayers is striking at 160.54 this season. Only Faf du Plessis (167.46) and Glenn Maxwell (186.95) have a better strike rate among the top 15 run-scorers in IPL 2023.
  • Marcus Stoinis struck a gamechanging 65 off 30 balls against RCB earlier this season. In nine innings against Bangalore in his career, Stoinis has hit 230 runs at an average of 38.33 and strike rate of 169.12.
  • Avesh Khan has dismissed Virat Kohli twice in 21 balls in the IPL (23 runs). Also, Faf du Plessis strikes at just 123.1 against him (48 off 39 balls, one dismissal).

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

  • Faf du Plessis is having a dream season. The RCB captain is the league’s second-highest run-scorer (422) with an average of 60.28 and strike rate of 167.46.
  • Faf hit 79* (46) against LSG earlier this season. However, how will the RCB opener fare on what is expected to be a slower Lucknow pitch?
  • The same question applies to Virat Kohli. In 112 balls against spin this season, Kohli has struck just 126 runs (SR 112.5) and has been dismissed four times.
  • On the other hand, Glenn Maxwell has a strike rate of 167.6 against spin this season. However, he has been dismissed six times in 74 balls. So, his battle against the LSG tweakers will be key.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga will be key against LSG’s strong middle order. He has dismissed Pooran twice in 15 balls in T20s, conceding 21. He has also dismissed Stoinis once in 30 deliveries, but the Australian has managed to hit 57.
  • Mohammed Siraj has taken the second-most powerplay wickets among fast bowlers in IPL 2023. He took 3/22 against LSG earlier this season.

Other Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head: Matches 3, LSG 1, RCB 2.
  • Marcus Stoinis vs Mohammed Siraj in the IPL: 12 balls faced, 24 runs scored, zero dismissals.
  • Harshal Patel could stop Stoinis. He has dismissed him twice in 19 balls, conceding just 24.
  • Krunal Pandya can keep Virat Kohli quiet. Kohli strikes at just 106.5 in 93 deliveries against the left-arm spinner in the IPL.
  • Ravi Bishnoi has taken five wickets in four matches on this ground at an economy of 7.86 and strike rate of 17.40.
  • LSG have taken 30 wickets in four home matches this season at an economy of just 6.98.
  • Amit Mishra has dismissed Maxwell five times, but the RCB number four strikes at 204.35 against him.

Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow Pitch Report and Weather

The overall run rate is just 7.50 on this ground this season, with the pitches aiding spin. The average first innings score is 152. So, we may see a completely different game to the one we witnessed between these teams at the M. Chinnaswamy earlier in IPL 2023.

There are some thunderstorms forecas in Lucknow before the match, but they should hopefully clear by the start time.
