Lucknow Super Giants: For the side, captain KL Rahul is the vital cog. He is not only on the list of top run-getters this season, but has also maintained a strike rate of over 144. Quinton de Kock too has looked great. The likes of youngster Ayush Badoni, the big-hitting Deepak Hooda and veteran all-rounder Krunal Pandya are the other match-winners for them. Amidst all these, Jason Holder and Marcus Stoinis provide more balance and strength to the side. Avesh Khan and Ravi Bishnoi have been really good with the ball in hand and would look to continue their forms.
Royal Challengers Bangalore: Their opening partnership has been their weakest link so far this season. While skipper Faf du Plessis has failed to fire at the top order, Anuj Rawat has also looked scratchy. Virat Kohli too has failed to impress. However, it is the middle-order that has won games for RCB this season. Dinesh Karthik is in the form of his life while Shahbaz Ahmed has also been good with the bat in hand. Meanwhile, addition of Glenn Maxwell bolsters the RCB batting line-up. In the bowling department, Josh Hazlewood and Mohammed Siraj would look to continue their forms, while Wanindu Hasaranga and Harshal Patel will be looking to make a comeback.
Both Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore will be facing each other for the first time as LSG have joined IPL this year itself.
