IPL: RCB ready for battle against Lucknow

Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) face-off against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Eliminator in Kolkata today. LSG qualified for the playoffs as the third team while RCB as the fourth team. Last year, Bangalore lost to KKR in the Eliminator.

The Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore have played each only once previously in the IPL, on April 19. On that occasion, the RCB emerged an 18-run winner. Thus the Royal Challengers have a 1-0 lead in the LSG vs RCB head to head record.
