RCB Vs LSG, IPL 2024 Highlights

Royal Challengers Bengaluru 153 (Lomror 33, Mayank 3-14, Naveen 2-25) lost to Lucknow Super Giants 181 for 5 (De Kock 81, Pooran 40*, Maxwell 2-23) by a margin of 28 runs.

At the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Mayank Yadav’s explosive speed was on display once more as he tore apart Glenn Maxwell and Cameron Green en route to a three-wicket haul. The Lucknow Super Giants successfully defended 181, handed Royal Challengers Bengaluru their second straight loss.

Quinton de Kock scored a half-century for LSG, while KL Rahul struggled with 20 off 14 balls. Nicholas Pooran, who had captained LSG in their last game against Punjab Kings, hit an unbeaten 40 off 21 balls to lead his team past 180 on a two-paced pitch. RCB’s pursuit was blocked by Mayank Mayank, who consistently exceeded 150 kph and even increased it to a season-high 156.7 kph.

Player of the Match went to Mayank Yadav.

After the blocks, De Kock bolts

Back-to-back half-centuries by De Kock, who was benched at the beginning of the previous IPL season, have confirmed his dominance. In the powerplay for Rahul’s loss, LSG scored 54 runs, of which he scored 32. Mohammed Siraj’s incorrect bowling and comrade Topley’s wide offering both helped De Kock’s performance. Maxwell dropped him for 32 in the next over, adding 49 to his tally before Topley eventually holed out to long-off for 81 off 56 balls.

Maxwell makes an impact with the ball

RCB’s Maxwell made a significant impact with 4-0-23-2, including 12 dots, in a match against de Kock. He bowled two overs in the powerplay, caught Rahul at extra-cover, and removed Marcus Stoinis. Maxwell also won his match-up against de Kock, keeping him to four off eight balls. This highlights the inefficiency of frontline bowlers.

Pooran takes off

Pooran had a difficult start, hitting 8 out of 10 balls at one time. He then hit 5 sixes in the final two overs to silence a sold-out crowd at the Chinnaswamy. The highlight of the game was Topley’s shanked six off a 110.4 kph slower ball that landed on the stadium’s roof.

The margin for error is razor-thin against top power hitters like Pooran. When Topley missed his broader yorkers significantly, Pooran scythed him for a pair of sixes at point to put LSG back in front.

Siddharth shows up for the IPL

M. Siddharth, a talented Tamil Nadu cricketer, was born in Jakarta, Indonesia, and moved to Chennai to become a professional. Despite his desire to become Irfan Pathan, his academy coaches noted his lack of pace. Siddharth switched to left-arm spin and continued to swing the new ball, which is his calling card in the Tamil Nadu Premier League. LSG’s team management supported him to bowl against Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis, leaving RCB at 42 for 2.

Mayank on Top 

Maxwell evaded Mayank’s first bouncer, but he caught it at 151 kph, leaving for a duck. Mayank then hit the top of Green’s off stump with another impressive delivery, with a speed of 145 kph.

Green, a rookie in his 12th T20 game, appeared like a rookie, staying side of the ball. Mayank wheeled away in celebration, and RCB needed 79 off 34 balls at that point.

Mahipal Lomror hit 33 off 13 balls, but the chase was always beyond RCB’s reach. Mayank, who hasn’t played at LSG for two seasons due to injuries, has started his IPL career with back-to-back Player-of-the-Match performances.

What next?

RCB is aiming for a turn around as they go to Jaipur after suffering their second straight home defeat. They take on the undefeated Rajasthan Royals on April 6. On the other hand, LSG will return home to play the Gujarat Titans on April 7.
