4. Lucknow Super Giants vs Royal Challengers Bangalore- 2023
Royal Challengers Bangalore clashed against Lucknow Super Giants in the 15th match of IPL 2023. After being put into bat, Bangalore racked up 212 runs in 20 overs, riding on sensational knocks from skipper Faf du Plessis (79* runs off 46 balls), Virat Kohli (61 runs off 44 balls), and Glenn Maxwell (59 runs off 29 balls).
Chasing a daunting target of 213, Lucknow had a poor start and lost three wickets in four overs with only 23 runs on the board. But Marcus Stonis and KL Rahul put together 76 runs for the fourth wicket to bring their team back into the game. However, RCB bowlers dismissed both set batters to leave the opposition in choppy waters.
Just when things looked bleak for LSG, Nicholas Pooran (62 runs off 19 balls) and Ayush Badoni (30 runs off 24 deliveries) inflicted carnage on the RCB bowlers to put their team on a verge of a win. Eventually, Rahul & Co. won the game by a wicket in a cliffhanger.
