RCB vs LSG IPL 2024 Match 15 Match Ups

Royal Challengers Bengaluru will face off against Lucknow Super Giants in the fifteenth match of IPL 2024 at Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.

The game will take place at the same venue where the two teams had a high-scoring match last time they played in IPL 2023. As a result, it is crucial to identify the significant match-ups in this game to determine if it has the potential to be as exciting as the previous one in 2023.

RCB is facing a challenging situation in the ongoing league, where they have lost two matches while defending their totals and have only managed to win one match while chasing. As a result, they are currently in the ninth position in the league table. In contrast, LSG has won one match and lost one match in their two games so far, placing them in the sixth position in the league table.

The two teams have faced each other 4 times with RCB having a 3-1 lead over LSG.

RCB vs LSG Top 5 Player Battles

  1. Krunal Pandya vs Dinesh Karthik

Krunla Pandya has figures of 0/19 and 0/26 in his four-over spells in the two matches played so far. On the other hand, Karthik has scored quickfire 38, 28 and 20 in his three matches. Thus it is going to be a matchup of economy vs finishing when these two off-filed players will face up against each other on the field. Their IPL meetings have been rather one-sided so far: 28 balls, 24 runs, two dismissals.

  1. Krunal Pandya vs Glenn Maxwell (T20I+IPL)

Krunal Pandya has taken Glenn Maxwell’s wicket thrice in the IPL (42 runs off 35), exploiting his weakness against left-arm spin. This could be an opportunity for him to capitalise on Maxwell’s weakness again. Furthermore, if Maxwell’s poor returns against spin continue this season (he has been dismissed twice in just 14 balls), Ravi Bishnoi and M Siddharth may also come into play.

  1. Rajat Patidar vs Ravi Bishnoi

In the 2022 IPL Eliminator match, Patidar scored a century which instantly turned him into a star. He became the first uncapped Indian player to hit a playoff century, and he achieved this feat while playing against LSG. Patidar has been particularly dominant against Ravi Bishnoi, with a strike rate of 220 runs per 100 balls.

  1. Quinton de Kock vs Mohammed Siraj

South African batsman Quinton de Kock played well in the previous match and scored a half-century. On the other hand, Mohammed Siraj, who is a bowler, was only able to take 2 wickets in his last 3 IPL matches. However, if Siraj can perform well in this match, it will be an exciting battle to watch between him and de Kock. Siraj has already dismissed de Kock twice in the IPL, where de Kock had scored 23 runs off 21 balls against Siraj.

  1. Nicholas Pooran vs Alzarri Joseph (CPL)

Left-handed batsman Nicholas Pooran has been in outstanding form lately, with a strike rate of almost 150 in the IPL. However, his national teammate Alzarri Joseph managed to silence him twice in five matches during the CPL.

Runs 31
Balls 26
Dismissals 2
Average 15.5
Strike-Rate 119.2

Two of the biggest hitters in world cricket at the moment, Nicholas Pooran and G;enn Maxwell will be up against each other. Pooran has shown great form in both matches but has been unable to convert the starts, scoring an unbeaten 64 in a losing cause against Rajasthan Royals and 46 against Punjab Kings. Maxwell on the other hand has not had a great start with scores of 0, 3 and 28 in the three matches. But this might be the game where the Big Show can get going. With his off-spin, Maxwell could be a good bowling match-up against left-handed Pooran as well.

West Delhi’s Virat Kohli, a well-known player, has scored 21, 77, and 83 in three matches. He’ll face off against another West Delhi player, Mayank Yadav, who’s a pace sensation having bowled nine deliveries at 150 kmph or more. Broad called Mayank a great prospect for India. The game’s biggest test will be Mayank’s bowling against Kohli early on.
