Power Players for LSG Vs Bangalore Match
After smashing a match-winning 103 against Mumbai, KL Rahul will be brimming with confidence. The LSG skipper will go hard in the powerplay.
Dinesh Karthik is enjoying a dream run with the willow in this edition. Out of six innings, he has been dismissed only once. His scores read 66*, 34, 7*, 44*, 14*, and 32*.
Regardless of the situation, Glenn Maxwell will go hell for leather. We saw how he rescued his side against Delhi with a quickfire 55 off 34. In addition to his explosive batting, he can also be called upon to break partnerships.
Barring a single-digit score against Hyderabad, Quinton de Kock has been very effective with the bat. He averages 41 in five innings, including the highest score of 80. With the gloves, he has inflicted 4 dismissals.
Smart Picks for LSG Vs Bangalore Match
Avesh Khan can spray the ball around, but he is still the leading wicket-taker (11 at 17.09) for Lucknow.
Wanindu Hasaranga hasn’t gone wicketless in a single game thus far. He has bagged 11 wickets in this edition.
It will be interesting to see how the free-flowing LSG top-order deals with the probing bowling of Josh Hazlewood. The Australian pacer finished with figures of 3 for 28 in his previous outing.
If Bangalore bowl first, Harshal Patel is likely to be amongst the wickets. He relies on his variations to deceive the batters in the slog overs.
The Lucknow Super Giants will pin hopes on Marcus Stoinis and Jason Holder. These two all-rounders can even bat higher up the order and also operate with both new and old ball.
Manish Pandey can be extremely annoying with his inconsistency. However, he showed promise in his innings of 38 in the last match against Mumbai.
LSG Vs Bangalore Match Preview
Both teams have won four games and lost two in this edition. Although LSG and Bangalore are currently placed in the upper half of the points table, they cannot afford to get complacent. As far as this contest goes, Bangalore will need their marquee openers to fire on all cylinders. On the other hand, Lucknow will be hoping for another cohesive performance from their players.
