The Indian Premier League 2022 has had a long season, but it hasn’t been short on excitement. We’re in the final stretch of the season, and the points table is still wide open. With the exception of three teams, all teams in the competition are fighting for their lives. Titans have already qualified, whereas those two teams have already been eliminated. You can’t afford to miss any of the next few matches, which will make everything crystal clear.
The Rajasthan Royals will take on the Lucknow Super Giants in the tournament’s next match, which will have a significant impact on both teams’ qualification chances. Lucknow Super Giants can’t afford any mistakes, even though they’re already in the playoffs. However, the Royals must win this game to ensure that they don’t miss out on a playoff spot. Also, the winner of this match will have a good shot at securing the second-best position.
The RR vs. LSG game will take place on May 15th, 2022, at Mumbai’s CCI Brabourne Stadium. In IPL 2022, this is going to be a great matchup.
LSG vs RR Team Previews
Lucknow Super Giants
They have been one of the tournament’s best teams so far, and their position on the points table shows it. As of right now, they sit pretty in second place and should advance to the next round unless they drop both of their matches by large margins combined.. With that being the case, they’d be hoping to finish in the top two of the tournament, and a win in this match would certainly help.
The Super Giants have won eight of the twelve completed matches, resulting in a total of 16 points. In addition to their points, they have a fantastic net run rate of 0.385, which could play a significant role in determining their final position on the ladder.
Lucknow Super Giants Playing 11
Quinton de Kock (wk), KL Rahul (c), Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, K Gowtham, Marcus Stoinis, Jason Holder, Karan Sharma, Dushmantha Chameera, Avesh Khan, Mohsin Khan.
This is a terrible position for them to find themselves in after a disappointing second half of the season. However, they are solely responsible for their own actions. They’ve experimented far too much to have a solid foundation, and that’s cost them dearly in their most recent games. To avoid a terrible second half of competition for them, they would be hoping that their experiments pay off in the games that are most important at this point in the season.
As things stand, the Rajasthan Royals are in control of their own destiny. Their current position is 3rd, but if they can win this match by an adequate margin, they’ll move into 2nd place. For both the team and the rest of the playoff contenders, a loss here would make things a lot more interesting. At the moment, the Royals have 14 points from 12 games.
Shimron Hetmyer’s departure from the Royals has exacerbated the team’s batting woes in the late stages of games. The Royals will have to find a replacement for Hetmyer, who has yet to return, in order to ensure a successful end to the season. They have players like Riyan Parag and Rassie van der Dussen who can do that, but their performance has been inconsistent thus far.
Only a little more effort from the Royals’ middle-order players will help the team get back on track. In this upcoming match, if they can do that against the Super Giants, there’s no reason why they can’t pull off yet another victory over them.
Rajasthan Royals Playing 11
Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Devdutt Padikkal, Rassie van der Dussen, Riyan Parag, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Sen.
LSG vs RR Betting Tips
Both teams are looking to bounce back after losing their most recent games, so a victory here would be welcome. When it comes to the competition so far, the Lucknow Super Giants have performed better than the Royals, but they have also collapsed more frequently. In addition, they lost to the Royals in their most recent meeting, and both teams will remember that. However, there isn’t a lot of difference between the two sides on paper. We’d be placing our bets on the Royals to win, and you should, too, based on all of the above considerations.
