Lucknow Super Giants vs Rajasthan Royals Head To Head Records Preview:

LSG vs RR Head to Head: Lucknow Super Giants will take on Rajasthan Royals in game number 63 of IPL 2022. Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai will host this spicy contest. These are the teams placed second (LSG) and third (RR) in the points table. A winner of this game will know that the playoff spot will be theirs for the taking. Both the sides are coming off a crushing defeat in their previous game. They will want to set the record straight in this match.

Current Form: Lucknow Super Giants

The Lucknow Super Giants are one of the most balanced sides this season. They are a side filled with allrounders. Captain KL Rahul is never short of resources at his disposal. This formidable combination has helped LSG stay ahead of the curve throughout the season. They notched up 4 wins in their first seven games. But it was in the second half of the season that LSG really came into its own.

LSG went on to win 4 games in a row. In the process, they usurped Gujarat Titans from the top position. LSG briefly occupied the top spot in the points table. But their big loss stopped them from regaining the top spot. They are just one win away from the playoffs. LSG will be hoping they make it through as soon as possible.

Current Form: Rajasthan Royals

The way they were shaping up in the initial half of the season, they should have already made it to the playoffs. But they have stuttered on more than just one occasion. Rajasthan Royals at times have complicated things for themselves. The experiment to send Ravichandran Ashwin at number 3 has not paid rich dividends.

The Royals have been dominant in games when they have followed the basics. RR holds the season record for posting the highest score this season. They have defended the lowest score. Jos Buttler, Shimron Hetmyer, and Yuzvendra Chahal have been the standout stars. RR with 7 wins in 12 games is placed comfortably at the moment. A win will propel them to safer shores and maybe even a playoff spot will fall into their lap.

The stakes:

It is the battle of the top rankers. LSG and RR will want to quickly seal their playoffs spot. Both sides will stand a chance to move ahead in the pecking order. It promises to be an exciting game.
