IPL 2023 RCB vs LSG preview: Royal Challengers Bangalore(RCB) will aim to bounce back from a royal thrashing at the hands of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) when they take on the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Monday.

RCB began IPL 2023 in style with an eight-wicket hammering of five-time champions Mumbai Indians on home turf, with skipper Faf du Plessis and batting superstar Virat Kohli stitching a solid 148-run opening stand to help the team chase down the 172-run target set by Rohit Sharma and Co with eight wickets and nearly four overs to spare.

Bangalore similarly were firmly in control against KKR at the Eden Gardens in their second outing, reducing the two-time winners to 89/5 before a whirlwind partnership between Shardul Thakur (68) and Rinku Singh (46) turned the game on its head. The Kolkata spin trio of Varun Chakravarthy, Suyash Sharma and Sunil Narine then decimated their batting order as they were bundled out for 123 after being set 205 to win.
