LSG vs RR Today Match Prediction & Tips

Lucknow Super Giants vs Rajasthan Royals T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Lucknow Super Giants will take on Rajasthan Royals in the 44th match of the IPL 2024. The game will be played at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow and will start at 7:30 PM IST on April 27.

Lucknow Super Giants will be over the moon after twin wins over Chennai Super Kings. The team seems to have peaked at the right moment, with KL Rahul, Marcus Stoinis and Nicholas Pooran picking some good form.  They have five wins in eight games and need three wins in their remaining six games to qualify for the playoffs. The wins over CSK have certainly made them a strong contender to qualify for playoffs. 

Meanwhile, the game against RR will be a tough one for LSG. RR are flying high after seven wins in eight games. A win over LSG will make them qualify for the playoffs. The conditions in Lucknow have favoured spinners thus RR won’t feel much pressure of an away game. In Chahal and Ashwin, they have two class operators. Also, the form of Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson, Riyan Parag make their batting look strong.

LSG vs RR Match Toss Prediction

Toss will be crucial as there could be some dew in the second innings thus chasing will get slightly easier. We expect captains to win the toss and bowl first.

LSG vs RR Pitch Report

The pitch at the Ekana Stadium is usually slow and damp. It is not the best to bat, especially against the spinners. However, in the last game against CSK, they left a bit of grass so spinners did not get much help. Maybe, it was because of the opposition they were playing. We feel LSG would once again prepare a slow pitch. A score of 160-170 has been just about par here.

Lucknow Weather Report

The temperature will range between 41 and 25 degrees. The humidity will be 21 per cent and the wind speed will be 21 km/h.

LSG Team News & Playing 11

LSG Team News

Mayank Yadav was close to fit in the last game and even though we have no official confirmation about his injury status, we feel he has got enough rest and should be back in the playing XI. Devdutt Padikkal has got several chances as impact player but he has looked very ordinary. He should not get more chances this season given his scratchy innings of 13 in 19 balls vs CSK. 

LSG Key Players

  • KL Rahul – KL Rahul scored 82 runs against CSK when he last played at the venue. Rahul will be vital against RR as he is the team’s best player of spin and Royals have one of the best spin attacks in the tournament. He has scored 302 runs this season, including 2 fifties.
  • Marcus Stoinis – Marcus Stoinis played one of the best innings in IPL 2024 and blasted 124 in 63 balls to help LSG chase 211 vs CSK. He will be over the moon after that knock and would look to replicate the performance against RR, which he is very capable of.
  • Nicholas Pooran – Pooran has been excellent in the last few years and he has played with great authority in IPL 2024. Coming in at tough situations, he has changed the complexion of the game. He scored 34 in 15 balls in the last game against CSK and turned the game in favour of LSG.
  • Matt Henry – Henry has played only two games this season but he has made an impact. He bowled a spell of 1-28 in the previous game against CSK. Also, his economy of less than eight has allowed LSG to restrict teams to a manageable score. He can be a lethal weapon for KL Rahul.

LSG Possible Impact Player Substitutes

M Siddharth/Deepak Hooda, Amit Mishra, K Gowtham, Yudhvir Singh, Arshin Kulkarni

M Siddharth could be used as an impact player if LSG is bowling first and Hooda can be used as an impact player if LSG is chasing a score.

LSG Team Form

LSG have been decent so far, winning five out of the eight games they have played

LSG Predicted Playing 11

Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul (c & wk), Ayush Badoni, Marcus Stoinis, Nicholas Pooran, Krunal Pandya, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohsin Khan/Mayank Yadav, Matt Henry, Yash Thakur, Deepak Hooda/M Siddharth

RR Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

There are no injury concerns for Rajasthan Royals and the team should field the same playing XI against Lucknow Super Giants. 

RR Key Players

  • Yashasvi Jaiswal – Jaiswal’s return to form will be a massive boost for the Rajasthan Royals ahead of the playoffs. The ace batter scored a blistering century against Mumbai Indians and helped the team chase 180 with nine wickets to spare.
  • Jos Buttler –  Jos Buttler has also looked in great touch in the last few games which also saw him score two hundreds. Buttler has scored 285 runs this season and he is someone who can be mighty consistent if he gets into a zone of his own, which he seems to have achieved.   
  • Sanju Samson – Sanju Samson has also been mighty consistent for the Royals. He scored 38 not out against MI. He is also one of the better players of spin. Overall, he has scored 314 runs this season.
  • Sandeep Sharma – Sandeep Sharma made a great return to the Royals team and picked five wickets for just 18 runs against MI. He is a class bowler and can be lethal with the new ball. One can bet on him to be very effective on Lucknow surface.

RR Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Keshav Maharaj, Shivam Dube, Navdeep Saini, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Yuzvendra Chahal/JosButtler

There is no doubt that Chahal is going to be the impact player if Rajasthan Royals bowl first. If they bat first, Jos Buttler will come into play.

RR Team Form

Rajasthan Royals have been in great form, winning seven out of the eight games played this season.

RR Predicted Playing 11

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Riyan Parag, Dhruv Jurel, Shimron Hetmyer, Rovman Powell, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Avesh Khan, Sandeep Sharma, Yuzvendra Chahal/Jos Buttler
