Match Preview

In one of the most keenly anticipated matches, Royal Challengers Bengaluru will play against Lucknow Super Giants on Tuesday. The two teams played a close encounter during the IPL 2023 season. LSG won the game in the last ball in what was a high scoring match with loads of dramatic moments. 

Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) have won one game and lost two games already this season. One more loss could mean yet another bad start to the season despite the galaxy of stars they possess with the bat and ball. The onus will yet again be on Virat Kohli to lead the charge with the bat. 

Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) seemed to find their best form once they played in front of their home crowd. Mayank Yadav put in a great performance on his IPL debut as he broke the back of Punjab Kings batting. Quinton De Kock and Krunal Pandya did well with the bat to take their team to an imposing score.

Pitch Report 

Bengaluru has been known to be a haven for batters and a graveyard for the bowlers. The reputation stayed intact during the RCB vs KKR game last week. 85 runs were scored in the powerplay as Sunil Narine put the bowlers to the sword. The captain winning the toss will want to bowl first and make use of the better conditions while chasing.

Faf Du Plessis (C), Virat Kohli, Cameron Green, Glenn Maxwell, Rajat Patidar, Dinesh Karthik, Anuj Rawat (WK), Mayank Dagar, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Siraj, and Vijaykumar Vyshak.

Top players for RCB vs LSG Dream 11 Match 

Top Players – Royal Challengers Bengaluru   

Virat Kohli – The former RCB skipper has been the best batter in the IPL 2024 season so far. Two half-centuries in two games, show the form that Virat Kohli is currently in. His current form during the season should also end the debate regarding his place in the Indian T20 team. 

Cameron Green – An Australia all-rounder was traded to RCB by Mumbai Indians ahead of the IPL 2024 auctions. The move seems to have worked well as Cameron Green has taken well to life in Bengaluru. Cameron Green has been one of the most consistent players with the bat and ball for RCB during the IPL 2024 season. 

Top Players – Lucknow Super Giants 

Nicolas Pooran – In an interesting move, LSG decided to use KL Rahul as an impact player in the game against PBKS. Nicolas Pooran has been in the middle of a purple patch with the bat in the T20 format. The left-handed batter scored an impressive fifty when the two sides met last year at the same venue. 

Quinton De Kock – Veteran South African star Quinton De Kock came back to form with his fifty against PBKS. The left-handed batter has a good record at the Chinnaswamy Stadium LSG will bank on De Kock to give them a good start yet again with the bat against RCB on Tuesday. 

RCB vs LSG Must Picks for Dream 11 Cricket 

Anuj Rawat – RCB wicketkeeper Anuj Rawat is starting to impress a lot of cricketing experts this year. The 24-year-old is not only an amazing keeper but is also very dangerous with the bat in the death overs. His ability to improvise and score runs at a fast pace has been a huge plus for RCB since his debut. 

Krunal Pandya – Veteran star Krunal Pandya finally found form with the bat in the game against PBKS. The 33-year-old scored 43 runs batting lower down the order to show his importance in the LSG batting order. Krunal Pandya is yet to pick a wicket during this season of IPL 2024. With years of experience behind him, the wickets could just be around the corner for Krunal Pandya. 

Suggested playing XI No.1 for RCB vs LSG Dream11 Cricket Fantasy 

KL Rahul, N Pooran (VC), D Karthik, A. Rawat, V Kohli (C), G Maxwell, C Green, K Pandya, M Siraj, R Bishnoi, and M Yadav

RCB vs LSG Risky Captaincy Choices 

Glenn Maxwell – Explosive Australian star Glenn Maxwell hasn’t gotten off to the greatest of starts in IPL 2024. The 35-year-old has scored 31 runs with a best of 28 coming in the last game versus KKR. Maxwell has picked just 2 wickets so far and will be looking to better his performances in the coming games. 

Ravi Bishnoi – Leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi has fond memories of the Chinnaswamy Stadium. It was at this venue that he held his nerves to help India win the super-over thriller against Afghanistan. The 23-year-old has just picked a single wicket so far this season, but with the talent he has a reversal of fortunes could be around the corner. 

Players you should avoid 

Faf Du Plessis – Royal Challengers Bengaluru skipper Faf Du Plessis has been undergoing a lean patch with the bat so far. The 39-year-old has scored just 11 runs in the last two games to raise questions about his place in the side. With RCB needing the spark at the top, Du Plessis is under pressure to put in a good score on the board. 

Marcus Stoinis – Yet another overseas star struggling for form is none other than Marcus Stoinis. The 34-year-old has been undergoing a lean patch which has continued in the IPL 2024 season. Stoinis has scored 22 runs so far this season and is yet to get a bowl during the current campaign.
