Both the teams are coming on the back of contrasting fortunes in their previous game. RCB lost their previous game against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Lucknow are coming on the back of a victory.

As we make fantasy teams for this game, there are a few players we must not miss out on in order to maximize our earnings and points.

The current Purple Cap holder in IPL 2023, Mark Wood is a tall and menacing bowler in the Lucknow Super Giants team. In IPL 2023 so far, he has bagged 8 wickets and looks pretty lethal.

If he can get his bearing right in this game, Lucknow would be a happy side. Nevertheless, he is a must-have bowler in your fantasy team. You can even make him your captain/vice-captain.

4. Kyle Mayers (Lucknow Super Giants)

There is something really special about West Indian players in the IPL. Be it Dwayne Bravo, Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine or Andre Russell, all of them have carved their own niche in the most competitive T20 franchise cricket in the world.

The latest to join the bandwagon is Kyle Mayers. Mayers has been in scintillating form in IPL 2023 and already has 2 fifties in 3 games in IPL 2023.

5. Krunal Pandya (Lucknow Super Giants)
