Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are all set to lock horns with Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) on 10th April (*Monday) at M Chinnaswamy Stadium. This would be the second match at the venue, last time we witnessed how RCB chased 172 runs against Mumbai Indians (MI) as defending won’t be easy.

RCB would be aiming to bounce back strongly after a staggering defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) when their middle order was exposed.
