The 15th match of the IPL 2023 is between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on April 10, 2023. RCB lost their previous match while LSG won their previous match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The match is expected to be a high-scoring one due to the small ground at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.
RCB needs to improve their batting performance after their recent loss to Kolkata Knight Riders. Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis gave them a good start, but the rest of their batting unit struggled. Meanwhile, LSG will be confident ahead of the game, with KL Rahul and Mark Wood expected to return to the playing XI. Quinton de Kock has also returned to India after his international commitments.
The probable playing XIs for RCB and LSG are:
RCB: Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis (c), Glenn Maxwell, Mahipal Lomror, Michael Bracewell, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Shahbaz Ahmed, David Willey, Karn Sharma, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj
LSG: KL Rahul (c), Quinton de Kock, Kyle Mayers, Deepak Hooda, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Krunal Pandya, Amit Mishra, Mark Wood, Yash Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat, Ravi Bishnoi
Virat Kohli is expected to perform well for RCB.
Mark Wood is in sensational form and is expected to be the best bowler for LSG.
