RCB vs LSG Today Match Prediction & Tips

Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Lucknow Super Giants T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

RCB will host LSG in the 15th match of the IPL 2024. The match will be played at the Chinnaswamy Stadium and will start at 7:30 PM IST on April 2.

Another season, another disappointing start for RCB. The team lost the first game to CSK before bouncing back to beat PBKS. Since home teams have dominated the tournament so far, it was expected that RCB would do well in matches at Chinnaswamy Stadium but they became the first team in IPL 2024 to lose a home game. The bowling has been a major concern for RCB but the batters are no less culprits. Only Virat Kohli has been able to score runs for the team but the big three overseas players, including Faf Du Plessis, Glenn Maxwell and Cameron Green have been poor.

Meanwhile, LSG lost the first game to RR but they bounced back to beat PBKS in the following game. LSG look a very balanced team this season but they have played matches on wickets where there was some help on offer for the bowlers. How well the young bowling attack adapt to the flat track in Chinnaswamy is what will decide the outcome of the match.

RCB vs LSG Match Toss Prediction

Chinnaswamy is a very small ground and defending here is not easy at all. In the last game, RCB failed to defend a score of 182 thus teams would be keen to chase.

RCB vs LSG Pitch Report

There is no help on offer from the surface and it is no secret that the pitch is one of the best to bat in India. Also, the short boundaries and quick outfield make it tailor-made for high scoring games.

Bengaluru Weather Report

The weather will be clear and the temperature will range around pleasant 20s. The breeze would help the ball travel the distance easer.

RCB Team News & Playing 11

RCB Team News

Lockie Ferguson is in line to replace Alzarri Joseph in the playing XI after the Windies pacer’s ordinary run in the last few games. RCB would also be mulling over playing Will Jacks but they don’t have overseas slots available. They can, however, replace Joseph with Akash Deep and get Will Jacks in place of Rajat Patidar, but that is an unlikely scenario so early in the tournament.

RCB Key Players

  • Virat Kohli – Virat Kohli has been the lone warrior for RCB. After scoring 77 in the first game, he played a magnificent knock of 83 against PBKS. Kohli has scored 181 runs in IPL 2024 and leads the charts of most runs this season.
  • Cameron Green – Cameron Green showed signs of a return to form in the last game and scored 33 in 21 balls. However, RCB need many more runs from their overseas batters. Having got some runs under his belt, Green would be looking to make a bigger impact. Also, LSG have a few spinners and Green can decimate them.
  • Glenn Maxwell – Maxwell also looked in some form against PBKS and scored 28 in19 balls before throwing away his wicket. Maxwell needs to be sensible and play with some responsibility. Slogging every ball won’t work. He has all the skills to be match winner for RCB and it is time for him to stand up for his team.
  • Vijaykumar Vyashak – While ever other bowler went for plenty against KKR, Vyashak gave just 23 runs in four overs. He bowled tight lines and also got the wicket of Phil Salt. He can be backed for another decent show.

RCB Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Mahipal Lomror, Suyash Prabhudessai, Karn Sharma, Will Jacks, Dinesh Karthik

It is obvious that RCB would go with Dinesh Karthik as impact player. However, if the top order scores runs, they can also use Karn Sharma.

RCB Team Form

RCB have been poor so far. They did beat PBKS in the second game but lost to CSK and KKR in the other two matches

RCB Predicted Playing 11

Faf du Plessis (c), Virat Kohli, Rajat Patidar, Glenn Maxwell, Cameron Green, , Anuj Rawat (wk), Alzarri Joseph/Lockie Ferguson, Mayank Dagar, Mohammed Siraj, Yash Dayal

LSG Team News & Playing 11

LSG Team News

KL Rahul played as an impact player in the last game but he should return as captain for the RCB clash. Naveen ul Haq should also return to playing XI in place of M Siddharth.

LSG Key Players

  • KL Rahul – Rahul is one of the mainstays of this LSG batting and he will have a big responsibility of taking the team to a big score at Chinnaswamy Stadium. Rahul plays the anchor role in LSG, allowing others to play their natural game. Rahul scored a fifty in LSG’s first game against RR.
  • Quinton de Kock – De Kock was in full flow against PBKS and blasted a fiery 54 in 38 balls. The left hander would be eager to bat on a flat Bengaluru track against a bleak RCB bowling attack. De Kock can be devastating in the coming game.
  • Krunal Pandya – Krunal Pandya will be handy for LSG with his all-round skills. Against PBKS, he scored a crucial 43 in 22 balls, helping the team post a great total. Also, he can be useful with his left arm spin and create problems for the likes of Maxwell and Green
  • Mayank Yadav – Yadav has played just one game so far but he has already got the experts buzzing with his skills. The pacer bowled at 150 kmph consistently and rattled PBKS with a three wicket haul. He single handed turned the game in favour of LSG when PBKS were running away with the match.

LSG Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Deepak Hooda, Ashton Turner, Amit Mishra, K Gowtham

Deepak Hooda will be used as impact player if LSG lose wickets and need a batter; else Amit Mishra or K Gowtham will come in if LSG need a spinner.

LSG Team Form

LSG lost the first game to RR but bounced back to beat PBKS in the second game.

LSG Predicted Playing 11

Quinton de Kock (wk), KL Rahul (C), Devdutt Padikkal, Ayush Badoni, Nicholas Pooran, Marcus Stoinis, Krunal Pandya, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohsin Khan, Mayank Yadav, Naveen ul Haq

RCB are the favourites on betting platforms. It is a very competitive tournament and there are no clear favourites but RCB being the home team are getting the favourites tag.

Who will win Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Lucknow Super Giants T20 Match?

We suggest backing RCB to win. It will be a tough game and RCB would want to bat second. However, even if they bat first, they have an explosive batting that can help them post a real big score. Virat Kohli is in great form and Maxwell, Green have shown signs of a return to form. LSG can be put under pressure if they lose early wickets so RCB are slight favourites.

🏆 RCB vs LSG Prediction

RCB are slight favourites to win. They have the home advantage to their side. Also, Virat Kohli is in great form thus even if one of Green, Maxwell or Faf plays a big innings, RCB can post a huge score on the board. Their bowling looks weak but if they have enough runs on the board, RCB can attack a little more and put LSG under pressure. The visitors have a strong batting but they have shown they can get nervous under pressure, especially if they lose early wickets. RCB are favourites to win.
