Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) met only once in the league phase of IPL 2023 at Jaipur where the Super Giants emerged victorious.
Lucknow Super Giants finished third in their maiden IPL season with nine wins and five losses in 14 games played. They lost against RCB in the eliminator and were knocked out of the race last year. They would look to continue the same momentum this time.
