RCB vs LSG IPL 2024 preview

The stage is set for the grand clash between the Faf du Plessis-led Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) and KL Rahul-led Lucknow Super Giants at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. RCB has a strong home comfort and complete awareness about the pitch, while LSG is riding high on the confidence of victory against Punjab Kings (PBKS).

The toss is extremely crucial on the pitch of M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru as the team batting second gets a clear advantage due to the ‘dew factor.’

Former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh shared some wisdom for the RCB and spoke about changing their mindset to get different results in IPL 2024. "They repeatedly make mistakes in the team they pick. They invest heavily in batting and that is too foreign. They take mighty overseas batters but bowling has always been their weakness. It's the case now and evident as well," Harbhajan said on Start Sports.

"If you bowl enough good balls, you will still be able to get those people out. No matter who is playing, whether it's (Andre) Russell or anyone else batting against you, a good ball is a good ball. The bowlers will have to change their mindset slightly. Try to pick up wickets instead of trying to survive by bowling a decent over," the veteran spinner added.
