Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) had won the toss & elected to bowl first against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Virat Kohli & Faf du Plessis took RCB to a flyer and scored 56 runs in the power-play overs. Faf du Plessis was seen struggling.

The likes of Krunal Pandya & Ravi Bishnoi made sure that they don’t bowl any freebies. Amit Mishra was introduced into the attack in the 12th over. The shrewd leg spinner foxed Virat Kohli by bowling a short delivery & tempted him to clear the fielder at deep mid-wicket but was caught by Marcus Stoinis. Virat Kohli was dismissed on 61 runs in 44 balls as he struck 4 fours and 4 sixes.

The pitch seems to be a belter as the onus will be on the skipper Faf du Plessis to make the most of the start. There are chances that dew might come into action later in the match. RCB would be banking on Glenn Maxwell to dominate the terms.

Crucial Phase for LSG

Faf du Plessis all of a sudden is looking ominous & now RCB would sense that they can post a total in excess of 180. It won’t be a surprise if both the batters go berserk from this stage, we have seen in the past how teams have chased down targets over 200.

It would be interesting to see when does skipper KL Rahul brings back the right-arm speedster Mark Wood into the attack. LSG would be keen to break the partnership quickly, the role of Jaydev Unadkat will be quite important in the death overs.
