Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore will be facing each other in the Eliminator of IPL 2022, to be played at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. LSG are playing in their inaugural IPL season, while RCB have finished fourth in the previous season. In the league stage of this season, LSG won nine and lost five matches, while RCB won eight and lost six matches. When both the teams faced each other earlier in the season, Royal Challengers Bangalore won by 18 runs.

Meanwhile, LSG created a unique IPL record in their last match with both their openers KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock batting through all 20 overs of an innings. While both openers are in tremendous form, Deepak Hooda has also been equally brilliant in the middle. Mohsin Khan, Jason Holder, and Avesh Khan have been impressive with the ball.

Former RCB captain Virat Kohli had been in poor form in this season in general but peaked at the right time, scoring 73 against Gujarat Titans last match. Meanwhile, Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell have been terrific this season. Dinesh Karthik has had an unbelievable start to the season but has been largely inconsistent in the last few games. Wanindu Hasaranga, Josh Hazlewood, and Harshal Patel are RCB’s standout performers with the ball.
