Lucknow Supergiants vs Rajasthan Royals, LSG Playing 11 vs RR (Predicted), IPL 2022, Match 63, LSG vs RR. Lucknow Supergiants will play against Rajasthan Royals on 15th May 2022 at 7:30 pm in Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai, India. It will be the 63rd IPL 2022 match.
Luckow Supergiants has 16 points from 12 matches and a win will make them the second team to qualify for the play-offs. Rajasthan Royals have 14 points from 12 matches and they need to win their remaining matches to stay in the safe zone. RR beat LSG by 3 runs in their previous encounter this season.
IPL2022 is coming to the business end with each team trying to stay ahead of the others in the points table. LSG & RR are occupying the 2nd and 3rd places respectively. LSG is looking good to qualify but will need to score as many points to finish inside the top-2 position. RR has lost 3 of their last 4 matches and any more slip-ups might affect their qualification chances hugely.
LSG were bundled out for just 82 runs in the last game against table-toppers GT. Openers KL Rahul and Quinton De Kock have their prolific run scorers this season with all-rounders Deepak Hooda and Krunal Pandya playing good cameos in the middle overs consistently. All-rounders Jason Holder and Marcus Stoinis have taken up the finishing role for the team.
Lucknow Supergiants have a strong pace attack with the four frontline pacers Avesh Khan, Jason Holder, Mohsin Khan, and Dushmantha Chameera bowling in tandem. Mohsin Khan has been their best bowler this season with Avesh Khan providing crucial breakthroughs. Krishnappa Gowtham might find a place in playing XI and bowl in tandem with Krunal Pandya in middle overs.
Ravi Bishnoi is the leading spinner for Lucknow Supergiants but he was benched in the last game. UP’s Ranji skipper Karan Sharma made his debut for LSG in the last game against GT. He batted at the number 4 spot and could only manage 4 runs against his name before getting out to Yash Dayal.
Karan Sharma is expected to retain his place in the eleven at least for this game, but if Lucknow Supergiants would want to replace him Manish Pandey and Manan Vohra are other options.
