Lucknow Super Giants and Rajasthan Royals will be facing each other in the 63rd match of IPL 2022, to be played at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. While LSG are playing in their inaugural IPL season, RR finished seventh in the points table last season. So far in this season, LSG has registered eight wins and four losses, while RR has registered seven wins and five losses. At the Brabourne Stadium this season, LSG won both their matches, and RR won their only game. When both the teams faced each other earlier in the season, Rajasthan Royals emerged victorious by three runs. A win for Lucknow Super Giants in this match would confirm their playoff spot.
KL Rahul is the second-highest run-scorer of this season but hasn’t been in at his best in the last few matches, with three single-digit scores in the last four games. His opening partner Quinton de Kock has also been as brilliant this season. Deepak Hooda has been in top form in the middle-order. Mohsin Khan and Avesh Khan have been exceptional among the bowlers.
RR has the Orange Cap leader Jos Buttler in the team, with good support from Sanju Samson, Devdutt Padikkal, and Shimron Hetmyer. Their top bowler has been Yuzvendra Chahal, who has so far taken 23 wickets in the season, with good support from Prasidh Krishna.
