RCB vs LSG: Will Plessis flourish or fall prey to KL Rahul in today’s IPL match between Bangalore vs Lucknow?

 

This year’s IPL is going beyond everyone’s expectations, with veteran teams and experienced players losing the game to the underdogs. In yesterday’s match between MI vs RR, Mumbai lost their 3rd match in a row.

In the last 2 matches that Mumbai played against Hyderabad & Rajasthan, Rohit Sharma got a duck and failed to secure a single run. This was a major setback for the team. Rohit was the man who led his team to the finals in the previous seasons and snatched the IPL championship title 5 times.

Mumbai is looking a weak link this year under Hardik Pandya’s leadership and captaincy. With that being said, will RCB score their 2nd win in today’s match? Can Plessis and Kohli’s partnership put up a strong total on the scoreboard?

Or will KL Rahul-led LSG go for their 2nd victory in the row? Watch ipl live only on Winexch to catch the live updates directly from the stadium and stay updated with every turn and curve of the latest cricket news happening across the globe.

Despite boasting players like Faf Du Plessis, Virat Kohli, Cameron green, Glenn Maxwell, Mohammed Siraj, and more, RCB’s potential to qualify for the playoffs looks slim. 

Despite Virat’s outstanding performance in the last 2 matches, RCB is at no 9 in the leaderboard with 2 points, right above MI. Bangalore have pocketed only a single win in their 3 matches till date.

On the contrary, Lucknow is standing at a neutral level with 1 win and  loss. Today’s encounter marks the 4th match for RCB, while LSG will have their 3rd game.

The clash is set to take off on the bright 22 yards of the M. Chinnaswamy stadium of Bangalore at 7:30 pm IST sharp.
