Lucknow Super Giants will face the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their next game at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai. Both teams have claimed wins in their previous games and have had a good start to the IPL 2022 season so far. Lucknow delivered a fantastic performance against Mumbai Indians in their previous match, ticking all of the boxes. With eight points from six games, they are currently in second position in the points table.
The inclusion of Dinesh Karthik, on the other hand, has proven to be a boon for the RCB, as he has been delivering world-class innings. They have a fantastic bowling line-up, with Glenn Maxwell hitting four overs on most days, and this might be the season for them to win. With eight points from six games, they are presently in third place on points table.

Probable best batsman of the match:
Glenn Maxwell has been in great form, since returning to the RCB playing XI, scoring an important half-century in the last game to keep the side going at a good scoring rate. Despite wickets tumbling around him, the right-hander batted aggressively from the beginning of his innings, hitting 55 off only 34 balls with seven fours and two sixes. He has the ability to turn the game on its head in a matter of time.
Probable best bowler of the match
Wanindu Hasaranga has been one of the star spinners in this IPL season, despite the wickets not supporting the spinner, and his wicket-taking abilities have helped him to change games. So far, the leggie has taken 11 wickets in six games and is in fifth place in the Purple Cap race this year. He has been an important player of the RCB bowling set up this season, and the Sri Lankan player will look to add more to his wicket tally.
While there isn’t much to choose between the two teams in the IPL season so far, Bangalore’s win over Delhi Capitals, in which they were in a spot of bother but still managed to secure two points, would give them confidence to win in any circumstance.
Therefore, Royal Challengers Bangalore is expected to win this match.
