The match 43 of the Indian Premier League 2023 will be played between Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. LSG are going to take part in this fixture on the back of a massive 56-run win against PBKS in Mohali, wherein they put up the second highest total in the history of the IPL. Meanwhile, RCB lost their previous encounter in Bengaluru against KKR in a convincing fashion. Both Super Giants and Royal Challengers are not far away from each other on the points ladder in the current IPL season, that’s why their upcoming contest can be decided by fine margins, especially if there is a tricky batting pitch on show in Lucknow.

Lucknow Super Giants batting lineup put behind the disappointment of their last home collapse and smashed a massive total of 257/5 in their allotted 20 overs against PBKS. Kyle Mayers started the onslaught and it was carried forward wonderfully by the likes of Ayush Badoni and Marcus Stoinis, in particular. In their bowling effort, LSG were very impressive as the youngster Yash Thakur and Afghanistan international Naveen Ul-Haq were amongst the wickets, Ravi Bishnoi played his part with the ball too.

Royal Challengers Bangalore have been struggling to overhaul big totals in this year’s IPL even when their top order of Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis, and Glenn Maxwell, are in scintillating form. The lack of substantial runs from the middle order has been a worry for RCB management and it hasn’t gone anywhere as of yet. Mohammed Siraj and Wanindu Hasaranga have been putting up quality performances for Royal Challengers with the ball, but they need more support from the rest of their teammates.
