LSG vs RCB IPL 2023: Emotions broke out as Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir collided after the match
Royal Challengers Bangalore and Lucknow Super Giants squared off for the second time in IPL 2023. After incurring a last-ball loss at the Chinaswamy, where Gautam Gambhir cut out a “Finger on your lips” figure, RCB wanted to draw level in the reverse fixture. Batting first Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis gave Bangalore a cautious start. The two stitched up a 62-run stand for the first wicket. However, the run rate wasn’t taking the visitors to a big total. Thus, on the quest to get some quick runs wickets continued to fall and RCB could only rake up 126 on the board after 20 overs.

Having lost KL Rahul, due to a hamstring pull while fielding, LSG had to shuffle the batting line-up as Rahul did not open the innings. Kyle Mayers fell in the first over and soon Krunal Pandya, Ayush Badoni, and Deepak Hooda also went back to the pavilion. The trouble got deeper as Nicholas Pooran also fell cheaply. At 38 for 5, LSG was reeling and desperate for a partnership. Marcus Stonis and Krishnappa Gowtham did try to cover the ground but held out in the process. Eventually, Lucknow Super Giants fell short by 18 runs. Faf du Plessis became the player of the match for his 44 runs knock.
After the match, the drama broke out which can be summarised by the picture of Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir’s fierce face-off. With all that has happened, one thing is sure no stills of the two embracing each other are coming out for some time. While it was the second of the two scheduled matches between the two teams, the fans are hoping that both LSG and RCB make it to the playoffs and face once again in the IPL 2023.
