RCB Beat LSG By 18 Runs
Meanwhile, RCB scripted a remarkable turnaround in Lucknow after making just 126/9 in their allotted 20 overs against LSG. However, a splendid show by the bowlers saw them bowl out LSG for 108. LSG’s hopes were dented early in the match after KL Rahul walked off the field due to an injury but the team redeemed themselves by restricting RCB to a low score. However, the wicket was not easy to bat and a target of 127 was too much for the KL Rahul-less LSG.
