The former cricketer Aakash Chopra has shared the preview and his thoughts on the 15th match of the IPL. Royal Challengers Banglore take on the Lucknow Super Giants in the 15th match of IPL 23. Lucknow has won 2 matches of the 3 matches they played. However, Banglore lost a game and won a match. They were brutally thrashed by the Kolkata Knight Riders.
Aakash Chopra on LSG vs RCB
“Kohli is looking in good form. He was batting well in the last match as well till that ball which turned in and beat him. Faf du Plessis is also looking in good form. Both do well on this ground but the problems start after that. Rajat Patidar’s absence is being felt.” said Aakash Chopra
“You send Michael Bracewell at times at No. 3 and you want to send someone else on other occasions. An option like him (Patidar) is not available, and Maxi hasn’t fired yet. I feel the openers will do their job but a softer underbelly is being seen in the middle. The middle and lower-middle order is looking very thin on paper.”
Aakash Chopra further added that
“If Wanindu Hasaranga becomes available, he straightaway walks into the playing XI. But if he comes into the XI, what can be the changes in bowling? David Willey was outstanding in the previous game and you don’t want to change your three overseas players.”
In the Lucknow Super Giants, Mark Wood and Avesh Khan may come back in to the playing 11. They might also try to get in De Kock into the team.
