Royal Challengers Bangalore have a great chance tonight to join the other five teams who have 10 points already in the points table. If RCB wins tonight with a good margin they can replace Punjab Kings at #5 with a better net run rate. Lucknow Super Giants on the other hand are currently at the #2 spot in the IPL 2023 points table with 10 points and if they win they will retain their spot and join Gujarat Titans to be the 2nd team with 12 points and 6 wins.

There is a thunderstorm expected before the game which can cause some delays to the toss and start of play while in match hours rain will likely stay away with a 80% cloud cover. The temperatures are expected to be in the range of 23 to 21 degrees with humidity percent levels to remain in the early 80s.
This venue is a relatively new one at the IPL level and the previous four games which were hosted here show it’s a good batting surface with a par score of around 165 runs. Due to possible rain issues chasing would be an ideal way to go as the team batting second will have a much clear idea if the DLS method is used regarding how many to get in how many overs.
LSG vs RCB Match 43 Probable Playing XIIs
David Willey & Marcus Stoinis’ minor injuries in the previous match will most likely force them to sit out for tonight’s game and take a rest while the fantastic news for RCB is Josh Hazlewood is completely fit and ready to go so RCB will have him in place of David Willey.
Amit Mishra replacing Kyle Mayers as Impact Player will continue to be the go-to Impact Player strategy for Lucknow Super Giants and it has worked perfectly for them so far so no need to make amendments.
For Royal Challengers Bangalore, this Impact Player rule has been a true blessing for them as both Faf du Plessis & Harshal Patel are not 100% fit so they use them for their top skillset and then replace them to have rest. Virat Kohli will continue to be the captain for RCB which has worked pretty well so far.
Below are the LSG vs RCB Match 43 probable playing XIIs.
Lucknow Super Giants:
Possible XII: 1 KL Rahul (capt), 2 Kyle Mayers, 3 Ayush Badoni, 4 Marcus Stoinis/Quinton de Kock, 5 Nicholas Pooran (wk), 6 Krunal Pandya, 7 Deepak Hooda, 8 Naveen-ul-Haq, 9 Ravi Bishnoi, 10 Avesh Khan, 11Yash Thakur, 12 Amit Mishra
Royal Challengers Bangalore:
Possible XII: 1 Virat Kohli (capt), 2 Faf du Plessis, 3 Mahipal Lomror, 4 Glenn Maxwell, 5 Shahbaz Ahmed, 6 Dinesh Karthik (wk), 7 Suyash Prabhudessai, 8 Wanindu Hasaranga, 9 Vijaykumar Vyshak, 10 Josh Hazlewood, 11 Mohammed Siraj, 12 Harshal Patel
LSG vs RCB Match 43 Dream11 Prediction
Kyle Mayers as an opener has done wonders in the IPL 2023 and he has created a great impact for LSG which is why tonight we have opted for him as our captain in the Dream11 team.
The pitch available at Lucknow will favor both batters & bowlers which means if the batters give themselves some time they can score runs while bowlers who will bowl tight lines will cause serious trouble if batters decide to go for big shots.
Below is our best possible LSG vs RCB Match 43 Dream11 team.
Wicket-Keeper – Nicholas Pooran
Batsmen – Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis, Lokesh Rahul, Deepak Hooda
All-rounders – Glenn Maxwell (vc), Marcus Stoinis, Kyle Mayers (c), Wanindu Hasaranga
Bowlers – Mohammad Siraj, Ravi Bishnoi
Glenn Maxwell is our vice-captain for tonight as he is someone who has this great ability to change the course of the game in a few overs and his off-spin can also play a crucial role here if captain Kohli decides to use him.
LSG vs RCB Head-to-Head Stats
Lucknow Super Giants defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2023 once already with a close contest when Nicholas Pooran played a great match-winning knock of 62 runs off 19 balls while the last bowl fumble from Dinesh Karthik behind the stumps helped them seal the deal. We expect another closely fought game between two quality-looking sides tonight as well.

LSG vs RCB Match 43 Prediction
The betting odds for both the teams don’t have much difference as LSG who are favorites to win tonight got odds of 1.87 while RCB is not far behind with 1.95 betting odds. Lucknow has the added home advantage and they look in much better shape than RCB interms of fielding which RCB is lacking behind. Captain Kohli also accepted that they literally gifted the game to Kolkata Knight Riders because of poor fielding.
