Rajasthan Royals and Lucknow Super Giants will be locking horns in the 20th match of IPL 2022, to be played at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Both teams have had a good start to the season, with LSG in third place and RR in fourth place in the points table. While LSG won three in a row after losing their first match, RR had quite an opposite progress with two wins in a row and then a loss. Both the teams lost their only game at Wankhede Stadium, where they will be playing tomorrow.
Rajasthan Royals are yet to win a toss this season, as they were asked to bat first in all three games. After outclassing SRH and MI in their first two games, they lost a close encounter against RCB. Jos Buttler continues to be magnificent with the bat and is now wearing the Orange Cap. His opening partner Yashasvi Jaiswal was totally in contrast to him, with three failures in three games. Sanju Samson, Devdutt Padikkal, and Shimron Hetmyer have also played good knocks for RR.
Yuzvendra Chahal is the pick of their bowlers this season, having taken at least two wickets in all the matches, and also bowling economically. The opening pair Quinton de Kock and KL Rahul are in top form for the Lucknow Super Giants. Aided by Deepak Hooda’s finishing powers, the batting unit performed really well.
