RCB aren’t yet in a must-win zone but would loathe losing a third match to start their tournament. They could bank on their openers once again to do the job. I am backing RCB on the opening partnership count.

  • Lucknow Super Giants have conceded the most runs for opening partnership in their last 7 matches (IPL)
  • Royal Challengers Bengaluru have posted the highest o/p of the match in 5 of their last 6 matches (IPL)
  • Royal Challengers Bengaluru have posted the highest o/p in their last 2 matches against Lucknow (IPL)
  • Virat Kohli has scored 54 or more in his last 4 matches at this venue (IPL)

Head to Head


There were four matches played between Bengaluru and Lucknow so far in the IPL. The record is 3-1 in favour of Bengaluru.

Interestingly, the only match that Lucknow won was at this venue last season. It was a game that saw Lucknow pull off an incredible 213-run chase, after looking dead and buried for most parts of the game.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru Form


Bengaluru started the tournament with one win and two losses, to collect two points. They lost to Chennai by six wickets and Kolkata by seven wickets, while winning by four wickets against Punjab.

Virat Kohli has turned the clock back scoring 181 runs in the series at a SR of 141.4. Unfortunately for the RCB team, none of the other batters are performing admirably.

The bowlers have been a let down too, with no one taking more than three wickets in the season. All regular bowlers who played more than one game have conceded at or above eight runs per over, which highlights their grave concerns.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru Team News


Bengaluru started with the same team in both their games, but could be pressed into making changes here. Lockie Ferguson could get a game in place of Alzarri Joseph, who has struggled.

Lucknow Super Giants Form


Lucknow have a win and a loss in their two matches this season. They are coming off a 21-run win at home against Punjab Kings, after losing their season opener to the Rajasthan Royals by 20 runs.

Nicholas Pooran, who took up the captaincy from KL Rahul in the last match, is their best batter with 106 runs in two games. KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock have also scored fifties in the season and are beginning to warm up.

Mohsin Khan has been consistent with the ball in both their matches, while the rookie speedster Mayank Yadav has turned heads in his debut IPL game.

Lucknow Super Giants Team News


Matt Henry has joined the squad as replacement for David Willey, but Lucknow are unlikely to give him game time.
