Lucknow Super Giants vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Match 31 – Players to watch

 

KL Rahul

 

We finally caught a glimpse of the real KL Rahul in the last game that the Lucknow Super Giants played and it looks like the skipper has finally woken up from his early season slumber. On his day, there is no one more destructive than him, atleast in the T20 format and his revival will be a huge blessing to the Lucknow side, who will want to keep up their winning momentum. So far in the tournament, he has amassed 235 runs from 6 games and is currently third on the orange cap list.

 

Avesh Khan

 

Despite having gone through some major punishments early on, he dug deep and is currently the best bowler in the Lucknow Super Giants’ lineup. He will be crucial to castle the challenging RCB batting order and it is he, who will be expected to take the major wickets, including those of Glenn Maxwell, Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli. So far in the tournament, he has 11 wickets from 6 games and finds himself still in the running for the purple cap.

 

Dinesh Karthik

 

He was a player who didnt excite the RCB fans one bit after they announced his signing at the mega auction, but it looks like the think tank saw what no one else did and he is paying back their faith in him by putting in a match winning performance in almost every game. He has made his intentions clear, which is representing India at the upcoming World T20 tournament, and if he can keep up this consistency, then he truly makes a compelling case in his favour. So far in the tournament, he has amassed 197 runs from 6 matches and that is actually commendable considering he comes down the order.

 

Wanindu Hasaranga

 

He was another signing that fans failed to get behind, but yet again, the RCB think tank seems to have pulled off an absolute masterclass, as they have found an incredible all-rounder in Hasaranga. He clearly prefers bowling, made evident by his 11 wicket hauls across the 6 games, but when push comes to shove, he is capable enough to put some runs on the board. He has clearly added to the depth of the RCB lineup, and we expect to see him continue this form and even pick up a thing or two from his experienced team mates.
