One of the most awaited reverse fixtures in this ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 will be the heavyweight clash between Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) versus Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
The match will be taking place at the Ekana Sports City in Lucknow and is slated to kick-start from 7:30 PM (IST).
Lucknow posted the 2nd highest total in the history of IPL 2023 in the last game, when they posted 267 runs on the board versus Punjab Kings (PBKS).
In this article, we take a look at the top 3 vice-captain choices for today’s LSG vs RCB game at the Ekana Sports City:
1. Virat Kohli (Royal Challengers Bangalore)
Kohli’s resurgence has been one that has been talked about a lot. After a few lull periods purely based on his high cricketing standards, Virat is back to ruling the roost in the IPL. He is RCB’s second-highest scorer in this season and has mustered 333 runs in just 8 games.
Virat Kohli notched a half-century in the previous game of RCB against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). His contributions in your fantasy team can make you win a lot of points.
2. Kyle Mayers (Lucknow Super Giants)
One of the main reasons why Lucknow Super Giants are performing so well in IPL 2023 is because of the aggressive starts which Kyle Mayers has been giving to his team. Mayers can be a good vice-captain option in your fantasy team as he can score some quick-runs and make you stand out among your peers.
In 8 IPL 2023 matches so far, the West Indian hard-hitting batter has scored 297 runs and has a blistering strike-rate of 160.54. In the previous game versus PBKS, Mayers scored a quick-fire knock of 54 runs in just 24 balls.
3. Mohammad Siraj (Royal Challengers Bangalore)
Making Mohammad Siraj the vice-captain of your fantasy team can be one of the smartest moves you make in this LSG vs RCB game. Siraj has been in a rich vein of form and has bagged 14 wickets in 8 games so far.
He is RCB’s leading wicket-taker so far in this IPL season and can bowl extremely well in the death as well as with the new-ball. Siraj’s stocks have risen by a considerable margin and he surely can be a good addition to your fantasy team.
The last time when the two team crossed swords with each other in IPL 2023, Mohammad Siraj had taken 3 wickets.
