  • Virat Kohli’s recent performances have been exceptional, marking two consecutive games with half-centuries. Leading the tournament with 181 runs to his credit, Kohli stands as the top run-getter. Supporting him as the key batter for RCB seems prudent. Mohammed Siraj holds the key with the ball for RCB, despite his recent ordinary outings. However, his latent skills suggest a potential strong comeback. Expect Siraj to make an impact by claiming at least one wicket in the upcoming match.
  • Kohli’s penchant for boundary hitting is well-known, and given his current form, he is likely to unleash a barrage of boundaries against LSG. Betting on Kohli surpassing 4.5 fours seems a secure wager at this juncture.
  • The Chinnaswamy Stadium has a legendary reputation for witnessing massive sixes, and the trend continued in the last match with a total of 20 sixes being struck. Anticipate another high count of sixes, with the total likely to exceed 17.5 once again.

Toss Predictions

Chinnaswamy Stadium’s compact dimensions make it a challenging venue for bowlers, with defending scores proving to be a daunting task. RCB experienced this firsthand in the previous match when they couldn’t defend a total of 182 runs. Consequently, teams will likely be eager to chase targets at this venue, recognizing the difficulty of setting a defendable score.

Weather & Pitch Report


The forecast predicts clear weather with temperatures hovering around the pleasant 20s. A gentle breeze is expected, which could aid in facilitating the distance traveled by the ball more effortlessly.

Pitch Report:

The pitch lacks any significant assistance for bowlers, and it’s widely acknowledged that it ranks among the best batting surfaces in India. Additionally, the short boundaries and swift outfield further enhance conditions, creating a setting tailor-made for high-scoring matches.

Team NEWS: 

RCB Team News: 

Lockie Ferguson is poised to step in for Alzarri Joseph in the starting lineup, following the Windies paceman’s below-par performances in recent matches. RCB may also be contemplating the inclusion of Will Jacks, but their overseas slots are currently occupied. However, they have the option to swap Joseph with Akash Deep and bring in Will Jacks instead of Rajat Patidar. Nonetheless, such a scenario is improbable so early in the tournament. 

LSG Team News: 

KL Rahul made a significant contribution as an impact player in the previous match, but it’s expected that he will resume his role as captain for the upcoming RCB clash. Additionally, Naveen ul Haq is anticipated to reclaim his position in the playing XI, replacing M Siddharth.

Winning Chances: 

RCB holds a narrow edge as favorites for the win, leveraging their home advantage. With Virat Kohli showcasing excellent form, the team’s batting lineup, bolstered by potential big innings from players like Green, Maxwell, or Faf, could propel them to a formidable total. While their bowling may appear vulnerable, a substantial score on the board would allow RCB to adopt an aggressive approach and exert pressure on LSG.

On the other hand, the visitors boast a robust batting lineup. However, they’ve demonstrated vulnerability under pressure, particularly in the event of early wicket losses. Consequently, RCB holds the favorites tag for the victory.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru to beat Lucknow Super Giants.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru a 67% chance to win this match 

Lucknow Super Giants have a 33% chance to win this match 

Key Players: 

Royal Challengers Bengaluru 

Virat Kohli 

Virat Kohli has emerged as the primary driving force for RCB. Following his impressive 77-run innings in the initial match, he delivered another outstanding performance with 83 runs against PBKS. Kohli’s stellar contributions have amassed a total of 181 runs in IPL 2024, establishing him as the leading run-scorer of the season.

Cameron Green 

Cameron Green exhibited promising signs of regaining his form in the previous match, crafting a valuable 33 runs off 21 balls. Nevertheless, RCB requires substantial contributions from their overseas batters. With a foundation set from his recent performance, Green will be eager to make a more significant impact. Additionally, facing LSG’s array of spinners, Green possesses the capability to dismantle their bowling attack.

Glenn Maxwell 

Maxwell displayed glimpses of form against PBKS, registering a brisk 28 runs off 19 balls, albeit he lost his wicket unnecessarily. It’s imperative for Maxwell to exhibit sensibility and assume responsibility in his approach. Constantly going for big hits may not yield desired results. With his versatile skills, Maxwell possesses the potential to be a match-winner for RCB. Now is the opportune moment for him to step up and deliver for his team..

Vijaykumar Vyashak 

In contrast to other bowlers who struggled against KKR, Vyashak conceded only 23 runs in four overs. His ability to maintain tight lines, coupled with taking the wicket of Phil Salt, underscores his effectiveness. Expectations are high for another commendable performance from Vyashak.

RCB Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

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

It’s apparent that RCB would opt for Dinesh Karthik as their impact player. However, should the top order succeed in scoring runs, they may also consider utilizing Karn Sharma.

Lucknow Super Giants 

KL Rahul 

Rahul serves as a linchpin in the LSG batting lineup, entrusted with the crucial task of steering the team towards a substantial total at Chinnaswamy Stadium. He assumes the role of an anchor, enabling his teammates to express themselves freely. In LSG’s inaugural game against RR, Rahul showcased his prowess by notching up a fifty, emphasizing his significance to the team’s batting prowess.

Quinton de Kock 

De Kock exhibited an impressive performance against PBKS, hammering a dynamic 54 off 38 balls. The southpaw will likely be enthusiastic about batting on a flat Bengaluru track, especially against a vulnerable RCB bowling attack. De Kock has the potential to wreak havoc in the upcoming game.

Krunal Pandya 

Krunal Pandya’s versatile abilities will be valuable for LSG. In the match against PBKS, he played a pivotal role by contributing a significant 43 runs from 22 balls, aiding in the team’s impressive total. Additionally, his proficiency in left-arm spin could pose challenges for batsmen such as Maxwell and Green.

Mayank Yadav 

Yadav has featured in only one game thus far, but his performance has caught the attention of experts with his exceptional skills. The pacer consistently bowled at speeds exceeding 150 kmph and caused havoc for PBKS, clinching a three-wicket haul. His individual efforts significantly shifted the momentum in favor of LSG, especially when PBKS seemed to be dominating the match.

LSG Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Deepak Hooda, Ashton Turner, Amit Mishra, K Gowtham 

Deepak Hooda will be deployed as the impact player for LSG in case they lose wickets and require a batter. Alternatively, if LSG requires a spinner, either Amit Mishra or K Gowtham will be called upon to fulfill that role.

Team Forms: 

RCB Team Form: 

RCB’s performance has been underwhelming thus far. While they managed to secure a victory against PBKS in the second game, they suffered defeats against CSK and KKR in their other two matches.

LSG Team Form: 

LSG faced an initial setback with a loss to RR in their first game, but they swiftly rebounded by defeating PBKS in their second match.
