RCB vs LSG Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: IPL 2023 Match 15 | RCB vs LKN Dream11 Prediction Today | Bengaluru Pitch Report

After a crazy weekend where Ajinkya Rahane wound back the clock and Rinku Singh produced one of the all-time great performances in T20 history, what on earth does Monday have in store? Mondays are typically more quiet than weekends, but with IPL 2023 dishing up some remarkable matches, anything is possible.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) return home after what was a missed opportunity in Kolkata last week. They had KKR in all sorts, but the absence of key death bowlers told as they leaked runs aplenty. How they respond today will be a good test of their credentials this season.

For Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), an opportunity awaits to move to three wins out of four matches. With the competition table shifting places with every passing game, getting two points on the board is vital even at this early stage of the season. Here, the key question will be how well the LSG attack can handle the excellent batting conditions.

IPL 2023 Match 15: RCB vs LSG Possible Playing XIs

Wanindu Hasaranga is available for RCB after the completion of Sri Lanka’s tour of New Zealand. Also, Wayne Parnell has been named as Reece Topley’s replacement, but may miss out on selection in this clash. Josh Hazlewood is expected to be fit for the April 14th match.

The likes of Anuj Rawat, Suyash Prabhudessai or Mahipal Lomror may be up for selection with the RCB middle order under the spotlight.

Royal Challengers Bangalore: 1. Faf du Plessis (c) (OS), 2. Virat Kohli, 3. Glenn Maxwell (OS), 4. Mahipal Lomror/Suyash Prabhudessai, 5. Dinesh Karthik (wk), 6. Shahbaz Ahmed, 7. Wanindu Hasaranga (OS), 8. David Willey (OS), 9. Karn Sharma, 10. Akash Deep, 11. Mohammed Siraj

Will LSG play Quinton de Kock? It is the headache the team management are faced with. If QdK plays, Marcus Stoinis may miss out as he is not being used with the ball.

Mark Wood missed the last game with the flu, so it remains to be seen if he is ready for this clash. Avesh Khan missed the last game, with his availability also TBC. Also, Amit Mishra was excellent against SRH, but there may be room for just the one legspinner on this ground.

Lucknow Super Giants: 1. KL Rahul (c), 2. Quinton de Kock (OS) (wk), 3. Kyle Mayers (OS), 4. Deepak Hooda, 5. Krunal Pandya, 6. Nicholas Pooran (wk), 7. Ayush Badoni, 8. Yash Thakur/Avesh Khan, 9. Mark Wood (OS), 10. Jaydev Unadkat, 11. Ravi Bishnoi

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

  • Virat Kohli made a triumphant return to the Chinnaswamy in the IPL. He hammered 82* off 49 balls against MI last week. Overall on this ground, Kohli has hit 2,844 runs at an average of 37.92 and strike rate of 140.72.
  • Faf du Plessis smashed 96 (64) against LSG last season. He has scored 66 runs off 45 balls against Ravi Bishnoi without dismissal. Against Krunal, the corresponding figures are 46 off 33 with one dismissal.
  • Cometh the hour, cometh Glenn Maxwell? He strikes at 171.17 in nine matches at the Chinnaswamy. He does have a century on this ground (113), but just 77 runs in his other eight knocks.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga took the second-most wickets in IPL 2022 (26). Out of these 26, 19 came between overs 7-15.
  • David Willey is coming off an excellent outing against KKR (2/16). Both of his wickets came in the powerplay, so his battle against the LSG top order will be vital.

Lucknow Super Giants:

  • KL Rahul loves playing against RCB. In 12 innings, he has struck 610 runs at an average of 76.25 and strike rate of 147.70. Also, Rahul has strong experience at this ground: 14 inns, 413 runs, avg. 37.55, SR 143.90.
  • Rahul has smashed 91 off 47 without dismissal against Mohammed Siraj.
  • Quinton de Kock also has good numbers at the Chinnaswamy. The left-hander has struck 463 runs at an average of 46.30 and strike rate of 147.45.
  • Krunal Pandya is coming off a superb all-round display against SRH (34 & 3/18). His battle with Glenn Maxwell today could be fascinating as he has had the better of him in the IPL: 35 balls, 42 runs, three dismissals.
  • LSG will be hoping Avesh Khan is fit. He has dismissed Virat Kohli twice in ten balls in the IPL.
  • Mark Wood has taken eight wickets in two matches so far in IPL 2023 and 19 wickets in his last eight T20s.

Other Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head: Matches 2, RCB 2, LSG 0.
  • Krunal Pandya has kept Virat Kohli relatively quiet in the IPL. He has conceded just 79 runs off 80 balls against him (one dismissal).
  • Karn Sharma has dismissed Deepak Hooda twice in ten balls.
  • Dinesh Karthik averages just 15.44 with a strike rate of 127.52 in 19 innings on this ground.

M Chinnaswamy Stadium Bengaluru Pitch Report and Weather

The same pitch for the RCB-MI clash will be used here. The conditions offered early swing and movement for the seam bowlers, before settling into a terrific batting surface. But, because it has been used, there may be some offer for the spinners in the middle.

A warm and clear evening is forecast.
