Team News

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Royal Challengers Bangalore haven't started the campaign as their fans expected. They lost their first game to CSK, then won against PBKS but KKR dominated and destroyed them in their first home game of the season. The performances haven't been up to the mark and these are not good signs for the franchise. Faf du Plessis has failed to replicate his first match performance in the next two games which has put extra pressure upon Virat Kohli's shoulders.

Cameron Green and Glenn Maxwell did contribute with the runs to the scoreboard against KKR but threw away their wickets at the end. Anuj Rawat hasn't scored runs after his first match performance while DK has consistently scored runs after coming down the under to bat.

Mohammed Siraj is having a poor season and has to make a strong comeback or it will be very tough for RCB to continue him further in the playing xi. Vyshak Vijay Kumar bowled brilliantly in front of KKR's batters and he was the only positive for RCB from the last game. Alzarri Joseph is clearly a flop in the Indian Premier League and Bangalore should consider Reece Topley or Ferguson against LSG. RCB would like to put in some team effort this time around or they'll face their third loss of the season. 

Lucknow Super Giants

Lucknow Super Giants are finally relieved, registering their first win of the season. Quinton de Kock finally looked sharp and scored a half-century in the match against PBKS but Kl Rahul and Paddikal's struggle continues. Marcus Stoinis is also a mystery so far this season as he has been inconsistent in every department. On the other side, Pooran has consistently scored runs after coming down the under to bat. Krunal Pandya is having an underrated season. He is either contributing with the bat or ball in every game.

LSG have found a real gem and it is Mayank Yadav. The fast bowler is actually fast and not only fast but his strict line and length impress the fans. He picked up 3 wickets in the previous game and would be hoping to remain consistent throughout the season. Mohsin Khan has also bowled well so far this season and he will lead the pace attack alongside Mayank. Naveen-ul-Haq has never been the standout performer for LSG and they might consider someone else as the Afghan is failing consistently to drop a good spell. They should finally include the 24-year-old Shamar Josepth in their system as he might be the missing piece of the puzzle.
