At present, Gujarat Titans are present at the No. 1 position, but Lucknow and Bangalore are in second and third place with 8-8 points respectively. In such a situation, both the teams have a chance to become the table topper with a better run rate.Along with this, if we talk about the game plan of Lucknow Super Giants first, then the batting order of this team is the strongest of the tournament. Before the last match, although there was a question about KL Rahuls form, but he has given evidence of returning to the rhythm by scoring a century. Apart from this, Manish Pandey has also been seen contributing well as the number-3 batsman.

Anuj Rawat has also managed to score just one half-century and Virat Kohli is seen losing wickets after a good start. In such a situation, if RCB has to perform better in front of Lucknow, then it is necessary for any one of these 3 batsmen to walk.
All eyes will be on Sri Lankan leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga while death overs specialist Harshal Patel would also like to make a mark for his performance. On the other hand, Lucknow captain Rahul has scored 235 runs and is in excellent form. He scored a century against Mumbai and is only behind Jos Buttler (272) of Rajasthan Royals in terms of most runs.
De Kock is also in good form while youngsters Ayush Badoni, Deepak Hooda, and Krunal Pandya can play big innings. Jason Holder and Marcus Stoinis give strength to the team. All eyes will also be on fast bowler Avesh Khan and spinner Ravi Bishnoi.
