Lucknow Super Giants, RCB vie for supremacy

Navi Mumbai: The elegance of KL Rahul and the flamboyance of Quinton de Kock will compete against the finishing skills of Dinesh Karthik and Glenn Maxwell when Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore take on the IPL here on Tuesday.

LSG and RCB enter the game after victories over Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals respectively and both teams, who have eight points from six matches, are eager to continue their winning streak.

Against the second-placed Super Giants, RCB will have to tackle their problems of the highest order. While skipper Faf du Plessis has been unable to fire since the opening match, opener Anuj Rawat looked itch.

Virat Kohli continues to have a frustrating season. Despite looking in good shape, the former RCB captain has failed to take the big points.

However, the arrival of Maxwell has strengthened the team. The Australian all-rounder shot 55 of 34 balls to get the momentum going in the chase against DC.

Meanwhile, Karthik enjoys his role as a finisher and single-handedly wins matches for his new squad.

The seasoned wicketkeeper’s batter has not put a foot wrong in the current season, taking some of the best hits as he looks to make a comeback for the national team. He has been instrumental in RCB’s rise to the top four of the league table.
