The weather in Bengaluru is expected to be clear on Monday night with no threat of rain. The temperature should be around 23°C.

RCB vs LSG – Match Predictions

Royal Challengers Bangalore had defeated LSG in both their encounters last season. But the Super Giants have a better bowling attack on paper this time. Their batting also looks more all-round than RCB, who rely heavily on their opening pair.

Probable 6s

Lucknow Super Giants’ batting unit boasts of KL Rahul, Kyle Mayers, Nicholas Pooran, Marcus Stoinis, Deepak Hooda and Krunal Pandya. They have struck 28 sixes in three games. RCB have Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis, Dinesh Karthik and Glenn Maxwell. They have smashed 17 sixes in two innings.

Our prediction: Lucknow Super Giants to hit most sixes in the match at 1/1 (2.00).

Probable Wickets

Ravi Bishnoi has been in superb form this season, picking six wickets in three games at 6.25 rpo. Back Bishnoi to be LSG’s top wicket-taker at 5/2 (3.50). David Willey picked 2 for 16 in the previous game. If there’s any movement on offer, you can back him to exploit that and be the top bowler for RCB at 4/1 (5.00).

Our prediction: Ravi Bishnoi to be Lucknow Super Giants’ highest wicket-taker at 5/2 (3.50).

Man of the Match

KL Rahul hasn’t had a great start so far in IPL 2023 but has a ridiculous record against RCB. He averages 76 and strikes at 147 against the Royal Challengers. Back Rahul to be the player of the match at 6/1 (7.00). Nicholas Pooran, Ravi Bishnoi, Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis are amongst the other top betting options.

Our prediction: KL Rahul to be the Man of the Match at 6/1 (7.00).

RCB vs LSG Preview

LSG and RCB had very competitive matches last year and you can expect a tough fight in this fixture. Let’s take a look at both sides ahead of their encounter on Monday.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

RCB kicked off the IPL 2023 campaign with an eight-wicket victory over Mumbai Indians but suffered a heavy defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders by 81 runs.

RCB will have Wanindu Hasaranga available for the selection but Michael Bracewell has done well in his absence and it might not be a straightforward decision. They have signed Wayne Parnell as Reece Topley’s replacement but expect David Willey to continue until Josh Hazlewood arrives.

Predicted XI: Faf du Plessis (c), Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, Mahipal Lomror, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Shahbaz Ahmed, Harshal Patel, Wanindu Hasaranga, David Willey, Karn Sharma, Mohammed Siraj

Lucknow Super Giants

The Super Giants have played three matches so far and have won two of those. They have defeated Delhi Capitals by 50 runs and Sunrisers Hyderabad by five wickets.

LSG made a tough decision in the previous game by leaving out Quinton de Kock for the in-form Kyle Mayers. Mark Wood and Avesh Khan did not play the match but are expected to return for this fixture.

Predicted XI: KL Rahul (c), Kyle Mayers, Deepak Hooda, Marcus Stoinis, Krunal Pandya, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Ayush Badoni, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Mark Wood, Yash Thakur
