Playing against Lucknow Super Gaints in the 43rd match of the Tata IPL 2023 in Lucknow, Royal Challengers Bangalore’s batsmen were only able to score 93 runs in 15.2 overs as rain stopped play.

After winning the coin toss, Faf du Plessis, skipper of the Royal Challengers Bangalore, chose to bat first.

Knowing there is a chance of rain in Lucknow, openers Virat Kohli and skipper Faf du Plessis gave RCB a solid start.
