LSG vs RCB, Live Updates: Here’s what KL Rahul said at the toss
“It is just going to be hard work on this pitch for both teams. Just one change. Avesh Khan misses out and K Gowtham comes in. Having played here twice, we know that spin will be used more than pace here. Just want to hold our composure during crunch moments. The only thing we spoke about is to not come with a fixed mindset and we gotta bowl well and restrict them to a low total.”

LSG vs RCB, Live Updates: Pitch report
The square boundaries – one side is 72 metres, the other side is 63 metres. Straight it is 78 meters. It is a black soil pitch, so the bounce is relatively low. May not be high-scoring, but expect a bigger score than 145 – with inputs from Sanjay Manjrekar and Rohan Gavaskar.

LSG vs RCB, Live Updates: LSG’s Predicted XI
Here’s what we think could be the Lucknow Super Giants Playing XI against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Read here.
LSG vs RCB, Live Updates: Strong bowling attack of LSG
Spinners have enjoyed bowling in Lucknow with Ravi Bishnoi shouldering the responsibility alongside Amit Mishra. Afghan pacer Naveen Ul Haq has been tidy in the absence of Mark Wood. Avesh Khan has conceded close to 10 runs per over in seven games and he would be looking to change that.
LSG vs RCB, Live Updates: Mohammed Siraj’s lethal form
Mohammad Siraj has been the stand out bowler for RCB and he needs support from the other fast bowlers. Harshal Patel is tasked with bowling the tough overs but he would like to bring down his economy rate from 9.94.
LSG vs RCB, Live Updates: Slow pitch of Ekana
Offered a batting beauty in Mohali, LSG batters went on the rampage but they have struggled due to the slow nature of the surface here. Rahul and Co. would, however, be expected to put up a much better show than what they managed in their previous home game as they failed to chase 136 from a commanding position.
LSG vs RCB, Live Updates: All eyes on Rahul
Skipper KL Rahul, however, will be feeling the heat and would want to make a statement at LSG’s home ground. The pitch in Lucknow has been a bit of a letdown and worked against the strengths of the home team.
LSG vs RCB, Live Updates: LSG’s thumping win over PBKS
LSG, on the other hand, head into the game after a thumping victory against Punjab Kings. The batting performance against Punjab was a testament to the firepower they possessed. No total is safe when Kyle Mayers, Marcus Stoinis and Nicholas Pooran get going.
LSG vs RCB, Live Updates: Kohli to lead RCB
The former India captain will continue to lead the side unless du Plessis, who has been used as an ‘Impact Player’, regains full fitness.
LSG vs RCB, Live Updates: Weak middle-order
Kohli, du Plessis and Maxwell can’t be expected to do the job in every game and it is high time the likes of Mahipal Lomror, Shahbaz Ahmed and Dinesh Karthik step up.
LSG vs RCB, Live Updates: RCB’s strong top-order
RCB have struggled to maintain the momentum provided by Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell, who have done all the scoring in the eight games so far. With most teams bunched up closely in the standings, the margin for errors has reduced in the second half of the competition.
