This is going to be a crucial match for both teams.
Lucknow Super Giants and Rajasthan Royals will play the 63rd match of IPL 2022 on Sunday. This is a crucial match for both teams. LSG have won 8 out of 12 matches this season and a win will help them qualify for the playoffs. They were thrashed by Gujarat Titans in the last game by 62 runs which helped GT qualify for the playoffs. LSG were bundled out for just 82 runs while chasing a target of 145 runs set by GT. They would be hoping for a better batting performance in this game.
Rajasthan Royals have won 7 out of 12 matches and would also be hoping for a positive outcome. They have lost 3 out of the last 5 matches and would be expecting a better performance from all the departments. RR conceded the last game against Delhi Capitals after a dismal bowling and sub-par batting performance. Apart from two, no other batter could score more than 20 runs. DC chased down the target of 161 runs in 18.1 overs with 8 wickets in hand.
