- Josh Hazlewood vs KL Rahul / Quinton de Kock: In skipper Rahul and De Kock, the LSG have a formidable opening pair. The RCB has a perfect answer for the duo in Hazlewood. RCB requires early headway into Lucknow’s line-up, so the Australian pace bowler bowls the formidable length and can get early wickets.
- Wanindu Hasaranga vs the LSG middle-order: Hasaranga has been a massive success for RCB, with 24 wickets in 14 games. He has tangled the opponent’s batting line-up on numerous occasions with tight spells and has also taken wickets to add to the stress. Deepak Hooda, a skilled spinner, and power-hitters Jason Holder and Marcus Stoinis make up the LSG middle order. The match between the Sri Lankan spin bowler and them will significantly impact.
Here’s Super Giants VS RCB’s possible XI
Royal Challengers Bangalore Probable Playing XI: Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis (c), Rajat Patidar, Glenn Maxwell, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Mahipal Lomror, Shahbaz Ahmed, Wanindu Hasaranga, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Josh Hazlewood.
