RCB IPL 2023
Despite all the pre-season hype, RCB haven't been able to live upto the expectations in another edition.

Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Lucknow Super Giants in their own backyard by 18 runs to level the KL Rahul-led side on the points table. However, RCB are 5th because of a poor net run rate.

The Challengers, batting first, got off to a great start, as Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli stitched another fifty-plus score stand on a slow track. The middle order let RCB down again as they failed to add runs, and the visitors put 126 on the board.

In reply, KL Rahul-less LSG could not read RCB bowlers, and wickets fell like dominos. Amit Mishra and Naveen-ul-Haq brought their side close, but even an injured KL Rahul, who came to bat at No. 11, could not seal a win for his side.

Several cricketers took to social media to hail the epic low-scoring thriller and also wrote about the post-match Virat Kohli-Gautam Gambhir altercations. Dinesh Karthik wrote, “Low total but high on intensity.”

Here are some of the other reactions.

RCB will next face DC on May 6, while LSG will square off against CSK on May 3.
