RCB defeated LSG by 18 runs in match number 43 of IPL 2023, with the help of valuable contributions from skipper Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli at the top. Not only this, tight bowling from RCB bowlers ensured that the LSG team got restricted to a total of 108 runs inside 19.5 overs. KL Rahul's unfortunate injury on the field proved very costly for his side as the rest of the Lucknow batters failed to show patience on this pitch, and losing wickets at regular intervals didn't help their cause.
