LSG vs RCB Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Players Stats (5 Must-picks) :
Faf du Plessis – The RCB skipper has been in superb form, scoring 422 runs at an average of 60.29 this season.
Glenn Maxwell – The explosive batter has an average of 36.86 at an impressive strike rate of 186.96, and he can also be handy with his off-breaks on the sluggish Lucknow track.
Marcus Stoinis – Stoinis has a great record against RCB, and comes into the game fresh from his highest IPL score in the previous match. Though he may not be fit to play for Monday’s match.
Mohammed Siraj – The RCB ace bowler has been in a red-hot form this season, picking up 14 wickets at a miserly average of 16.64, plucking out key batters in the powerplay.
Naveen-ul-Haq – In the three matches so far, the Afghan bowler has been very economical, conceding at 5.67 and an average of 17. His cutters could be effective on the tacky pitch.
LSG vs RCB, IPL 2023, Match 43, Captain and Vice-captain Choices:
