RCB vs LKN: The 15th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 will be played between Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore at M Chinnaswamy Stadium Bengaluru on Monday, April 10.
Lucknow Super Giants had a strong start to the tournament, winning their opening game against Delhi Capitals by a comprehensive 50 runs. However, they couldn’t keep up the winning momentum and suffered a defeat in their next game against Chennai Super Kings but the team was able to turn things around quickly, securing a five-wicket victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad in their next match.
With four points in their account, the team currently holds the third spot in the IPL 2023 points table. As they head into their next match, the team will be eager to maintain their winning momentum and move further up in the standings.
Royal Challengers Bangalore, on the other hand, got off to a great start in the tournament with a comprehensive eight-wicket victory over the Mumbai Indians. However, they were unable to carry forward the winning momentum in their next game, suffering a huge 81-run loss to Kolkata Knight Riders.
Their bowlers struggled to keep the opposition to a manageable total, and their batting lineup failed to chase down a massive target. As they gear up for their next game, the team will be aiming for improved performances from both their bowling and batting units and will be looking to make a strong comeback in the tournament.

RCB vs LKN Top Players to Pick in Fantasy Team for Match 15 of IPL 2023
Faf du Plessis
He may not have had the best outing in the previous match against KKR, but he showed his class in the opening game by smashing 73 runs off just 43 balls against Mumbai Indians. Given his form, we can expect him to play another explosive innings in the upcoming match.
While the Super Giants captain hasn’t played a match-defining innings in the tournament so far, he has a solid record against RCB at Chinnaswamy Stadium. Given his experience and abilities, we can expect him to rise to the occasion and play a key innings in the upcoming match.
The batting maestro made a decent start in the last match against Kolkata Knight Riders, scoring 21 runs off 18 balls, but failed to convert it into a big score. However, in the opening game against Mumbai Indians, Kohli smashed an unbeaten 82 off 49 balls and given he is going to play at Chinnaswamy again, we can back him to come good.
