Lucknow are well placed to qualify for the playoffs but need to be more consistent having won consecutive games only once in this season. Bangalore are in a similar position without stitching a consistent run of games. This match could well be decided in the first six overs with Bangalore well-placed to continue their impressive powerplay performances of this season.

  • Lucknow Super Giants average 50.63 runs in the powerplays this season (IPL)
  • Royal Challengers Bangalore average a league-high 57.50 runs in the powerplays this season (IPL)
  • Royal Challengers Bangalore have posted the highest powerplay score in 7 of their last 8 matches (IPL)
  • Royal Challengers Bangalore have conceded an average of 45 runs per powerplay in this season, the second-best total (IPL)
  • Mohammed Siraj has posted the best bowling figures for Bangalore in 3 of their last 6 matches (IPL)

Head to Head


There have been three matches between Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore so far in the IPL. Of these, Bangalore have won two and Lucknow have won one.

The last time these sides met was on April 10 in Bengaluru when Lucknow won a thriller by one wicket in the final over with Nicholas Pooran winning the player of the match award.

Lucknow Super Giants Form


Lucknow have 10 points from eight matches and are only two points behind leaders Gujarat Titans. The Super Giants are coming off a massive 56-run win over Punjab Kings where they became just the second team to score 250+ runs in the IPL.

Four Lucknow batters have aggregated at least 216 runs with Kyle Mayers scoring 297 in the season. With the ball, Ravi Bishnoi with 10 wickets has been doing the star turn.

This venue has seen Lucknow losing and winning two games each, but with spin playing a big part they could be looking at Bishnoi and Krunal Pandya doing the job.

Lucknow Super Giants Team News


Mark Wood is available for selection but Naveen-ul-Haq’s impressive form makes it tough for him to be in the playing XI.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Form


Royal Challengers Bangalore have eight points with four wins and losses each in this season. They were beaten by Kolkata by 21 runs in the last match that halted a two-game winning run.

Captain Faf du Plessis with 422 runs, Virat Kohli with 333 runs have been their key batting leaders. With the ball, Mohammed Siraj’s 14 wickets have been Bangalore’s leading light.

Over-dependence on top-three batters is killing Bangalore’s season with the likes of Mahipal Lomror and Suyash Prabhudessai yet to fire.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Team News


Faf du Plessis played as an impact substitute in the last two matches but should be available for playing XI selection this time.

Verdict

We are moving into a very interesting phase of the IPL 2023 where nearly seven teams are fighting to be in the top-four spots. Royal Challengers Bangalore need to get its act right faster as they risk losing the initiative and slipping down the table. Lucknow Super Giants are in a better shape and are looking well-placed to build on the reverse fixture win. My pick is in the powerplay segment with Royal Challengers Bangalore likely to post the most runs in the first six overs.
