LSG: KL Rahul (537 runs in 14 matches) and Quinton de Kock (502 runs in 14 matches) have come out as the best opening pair of the season. If the two openers get going in the eliminator against RCB, expect them to stroll into the Qualifier 2. Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan and Mohsin Khan will be key in the bowling department.

RCB: Virat Kohli found form in the last game against Gujarat Titans but a lot will depend on how captain Faf du Plessis paces his innings. Sri Lankan spinner Wanindu Hasaranga (24 wickets in 14 matches) will be their key bowler.
