Lucknow Super Giants – who are sitting at the second spot in the IPL 2022 points table with four wins in six games – registered a thrilling 18-run victory over Mumbai Indians in their previous game. RCB also has four wins from six matches and is placed in the third position behind Lucknow.

Captain KL Rahul led his team from the front in the last match against MI and slammed his first century of the season and helped his team post a big total. KL Rahul would be looking to continue his momentum against his previous franchise. Royal Challengers Bangalore are also on a roll this season.

After succumbing to a defeat against CSK, Faf du Plessis and his spirited band of boys came back strongly in the next game and defeated Delhi Capitals. Dinesh Karthik and Josh Hazlewood did the job for the Royal Challengers in their previous game and would be aiming to produce another comprehensive performance against an in-form LSG. Dinesh Karthik’s strike rate this season is 209.57.

In the last game itself, despite losing early wickets, Glenn Maxwell and Dinesh Karthik took the team to a 189 total which was an exceptional effort. Bangalore looks perfectly equipped as their bowling is also solid after the arrival of Josh Hazlewood and Harshal Patel.

Lucknow Supergiants has a quality batting line-up and batters capable of scoring runs consistently till No.8 in their playing XI. RCB too has a strong batting line-up with good depth but lack of runs from the top-3 is their issue in the last 2 matches.

RCB has quality pace and spin bowlers with a lot of experience playing on the international stage barring their fifth bowler. LSG has a variety of spin and pace options in the bowling department and will be the stronger team on paper but, one expects RCB to win this match owing to their experience and strong top-order batting department.
