Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Lucknow Super Giants, 15th Match live score
Virat Kohli chose a good moment- their homecoming- to highlight that Royal Challengers Bangalore are part of IPL royalty. He said, outside of Chennai Super Kings( 11) and Mumbai Indians( 9), they’re the team that has made it to the playoffs the most times( 8).
But the wider IPL fraternity- and indeed some of Royal Challengers’ fans- will not find any solace in that because of the ways in which the team’s fortunes swing. They began this season by tapping Mumbai on the head and tossing them off to the side, but then they went to Kolkata and basically enabled a blasterclass from aNo. 7 batter. They bowled length in the death withmid-off up. What was Shardul Thakur to do? Not score 68 off 29 balls which turned 89 for 5 to 204 for 7?
These reverses, which happen as a result of mostly avoidable mistakes, make the Royal Challengers a bit of a frustrating team to follow, let alone plan for, which is what Lucknow Super Giants have to do.
KL Rahul will be coming home to Bengaluru for the first time in four IPLs- and only the third time ever as an opposition player. He is yet to win a match as a visitor to the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, and in some ways, the chances of that happening may be tied to how well he manages his overseas resources, especially now that Quinton de Kock is available and Kyle Mayers is undroppable( ish)
Team News & Toss and Impact Player Strategy
Prior to the start of IPL 2023, Super Giants would’ve been fairly confident of their overseas combination. De Kock for firepower at the top. Nicholas Pooran and Marcus Stoinis for firepower at the death, and Mark Wood for firepower with the ball. But now that Mayers has casually thumped 139 runs in three innings at a higher strike rate(187.83) than any of the top 15 scorers in the event so far, there’s a decision to be made. Avesh Khan is carrying an injury, and Wood missed the last game with flu.
Royal Challengers were expecting Wanindu Hasaranga to arrive on April 10 which is match day- following the conclusion of a white- ball series in New Zealand, where he picked up numbers of 11-0-93-2 in threeT20Is.However, he might even be able to lessen the burden on their death bowers because his wickets in the middle overs could mean the seamers may be left dealing with lesser batters at the end of the innings, If he’s ready to start. Josh Hazlewood faces a longer stretch on the sidelines, with the Australia quick likely to be available for the April 17 game against Super Kings. Wayne Parnell has replaced the injured Reece Topley.
Royal Challengers are yet to bat first in IPL 2023, and should this be when it happens, they might consider bringing in Suyash Prabhudessai and swapping him out for Mohammed Siraj later in the game.
Ayush Badoni appears to have become a specialist Impact Player for Super Giants. He went out for K Gowtham in the first, came in for Avesh in the second, and went out for Amit Mishra in the third. The sequence is likely to continue.
