RCB vs LSG: Match 15 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) saw the newly formed rivalry between Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Lucknow Super Giants step into another chapter at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on April 2.

Quinton de Kock Delivers For LSG

LSG openers Quinton de Kock and KL Rahul knew they had to get going quickly to put up a healthy total for the visitors. However, they lost Bangalore boy KL Rahul early on at just 20 runs. It was de Kock who started to hit the ball everywhere and at a good strike rate as well.

His 56-ball 81 kept LSG in the hunt for a good total in the end. However, Lucknow saw the run flow being interrupted courtesy of quick wickets in the middle overs. The visitors were at 143/4 at 16.4 overs when they lost de Kock.

In came the in-form Nicholas Pooran who contributed well with a 40*-run cameo to take LSG to a respectable 181/5 in their 20 overs. Pooran’s innings also saw him cross 100 sixes in IPL in just 62 matches.
