RCB vs LSG Match Preview

Virat Kohli is an automatic selection for the Dream11 team simply because of his consistency. He often faces the majority of the deliveries in a match and also scores a lot of runs. Apart from him, though, you will have to take a few calculated risks.

RCB's batting lineup has been inconsistent, with players like Cameron Green and Glenn Maxwell failing to capitalize on their starts. Faf du Plessis has been out of form, while Rajat Patidar has struggled to find his footing. Dinesh Karthik and Anuj Rawat have been the saving grace for RCB's batting. 

Facing a spin-heavy LSG bowling attack will be a challenge for RCB, especially if Green or Maxwell do not step up. 

On the bowling front, RCB's bowlers like Mohammad Siraj, Alzarri Joseph, and Yash Dayal have been ineffective. It might be time to give Cameron Green more opportunities with the ball. Fortunately, Mayank Dagar and Vijaykumar Vyashak have shown promise in recent matches.

LSG possesses one of the most formidable batting lineups in IPL 2024, in our opinion. KL Rahul, Marcus Stoinis, and Devdutt Padikkal have yet to make a significant impact in the IPL. However, they are all players who enjoy playing at the Chinnaswamy Stadium and have fond memories there. The big draw here is Nicholas Pooran. He, along with Quinton de Kock, can take the match beyond the opposition with ease. 

They are both clean hitters of the ball and will be tough to stop at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

In the previous match, Mayank Yadav showcased his skills by bowling at a speed of over 155kmph and taking three wickets to seal the victory. He will undoubtedly pose a real threat in this upcoming match as well, especially in his contest against the RCB batters, which promises to be exciting.

While Mohsin Khan, Manimaran Siddharth, and Naveen-ul-Haq are talented bowlers, we don't expect any of them to completely dismantle the opposition. On the other hand, Krunal Pandya and Ravi Bishnoi form an exceptional spin bowling duo, and we believe they will be utilized to target the RCB batting lineup in this match.

Weather Report

There are some clouds expected in Bengaluru but no rain is forecast. The temperatures will be in their mid-twenties and so absolutely ideal for cricket.

Pitch Report

The pitch at the Chinnaswamy Stadium has been a bit slower and drier than in previous seasons. 

It has still allowed the batters to score freely but the spinners can be hard to get away. Making the most of the powerplay is going to be crucial for both teams. 190 is the average score batting first at this venue over the previous 10 IPL matches but the average winning score is 197. 200 has to be target for both teams while batting first. 

Notable stats

Nicholas Pooran vs RCB

Pooran likes batting against RCB and is probably going to be one of the big threats in this match. His battle against the spin of Mayank Dagar or the extreme pace of Alzarri Joseph could determine the outcome of the match.

Team News

We think RCB will be forced to make a few changes in the lineup but there are no reports of any injuries from either camp.

Dream11 Prediction

LSG has a great chance of winning this match thanks to its stronger batting lineup. It also has the spinners needed to challenge RCB in the middle overs. 

Top Picks

Nicholas Pooran - Used tactically by LSG, Pooran plays T20 cricket withot any hesitation. His job is to clear the boudnaries and take the game on. The Chinnaswamy could really suit his style of playing. 

Virat Kohli - In excellent form, Kohli may not have the strike rate of an elite T20 batter but his consistency is second to none. 

Krunal Pandya - He scored runs in the previous match and has been bowling beautifully also. A very valuable player to have in your lineup.
