LSG vs RCB Highlights, IPL 2022: Faf du Plessis hit a 64-ball 96, while Aussie quick Josh Hazlewood picked four wickets as Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Lucknow Super Giants by 18 runs. Riding on Du Plessis' efforts, RCB posted a stiff 181/6 on the board after being asked to bat first. Bangalore got off to a shaky start and lost Anuj Rawat and Virat Kohli in the first over. However, a crucial 50-plus stand between Du Plessis and Shahbaz Ahmed helped RCB to get things back in order. In response, LSG too started on a similar note and lost Quinton de Kock and Manish Pandey cheaply. KL Rahul was then caught-behind on 30. Krunal Pandya chipped in with a good 28-ball 42 before getting out to Glenn Maxwell. Follow the Highlights of LSG vs RCB:
