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

The first Sunday of the 2024 Indian Premier League brings Rajasthan Royals and Lucknow Super Giants together in Match 4 at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur. Last season, Rajasthan finished in fifth place, just missing out on the play-offs with Lucknow ending in third in the group stage but finishing fourth overall. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway at 15:30 local time on March 24th.

Rajasthan Royals have once again assembled a squad full of top T20 players from across the globe and, as they do ahead of all campaigns, hopes will be high of a successful season. However, this will not be an easy contest against the Super Giants on Sunday afternoon.

Lucknow Super Giants will still feel that they underperformed in the play-offs last season and may be looking to channel that into this season’s tournament. They have quality throughout their squad and they will be a tough side to beat across this competition.

RR Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

Although Rajasthan Royals let Devdutt Padikkal leave and join Lucknow Super Giants, they picked up Avesh Khan in the other direction and he is expected to take the new ball in this game of IPL 2024. Prasidh Krishna has been ruled out of the entire tournament with a quadriceps injury and Adam Zampa opted to make himself unavailable.

RR Key Players

  • Yashasvi Jaiswal- the 22 year old opener won the Emerging Player of the Season last year and was in brilliant form for India in the recent Test series against England.
  • Jos Buttler- the English right-handed opener had a disappointing campaign in 2023 but finished as the leading run scorer in the 2022 IPL.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal- the right-arm spinner has taken 48 wickets across the last two IPL tournaments with a strike-rate of under 16 in both campaigns.
  • Trent Boult- the New Zealand left-arm pace bowler will open the bowling and if there is any swing on offer then he will take advantage of it.

RR Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Abid Mushtaq, Shubham Dubey, Tanush Kotian, Sandeep Sharma, Kuldeep Sen

Right-arm fast bowler Sen could be a useful addition to Rajasthan’s side in this game if they require an additional bowling option. If they require a batting impact player, we expect it to be the left-handed all-rounder Abid Mushtaq.

RR Team Form

Rajasthan Royals won two of their last three games last season but won just three of their final seven.

RR Predicted Playing 11

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

LSG Team News & Playing 11

LSG Team News

English right-arm fast bowler Mark Wood has been removed from this year’s IPL by the ECB to manage his workload with Shamar Joseph brought in to replace him. Rahul has proved his fitness after missing the final four Tests against England due to injury.

LSG Key Players

  • KL Rahul- the right-hander averages over 46 in the IPL and is one of the most reliable batters over recent seasons in the tournament.
  • Devdutt Padikkal- moving away from Rajasthan Royals could prove to be a smart move for the Indian international who has a good record in the IPL but will be keen to prove himself against his former side in this match.
  • Ravi Bishnoi- the right-arm spinner impressed with his ability to toss the ball up and tempt even the most experienced and set batters to take him on during last year’s competition.
  • Marcus Stoinis- the Australian all-rounder has the ability to take over a game with either bat or ball. His best IPL bowling figures are 4/15.

LSG Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Arshad Khan, Ayush Badoni, Arshin Kulkarni, Shivam Mavi, Mayank Yadav

With the pitch expected to assist the bowlers, Lucknow could well bring in Shivam Mavi as an extra bowler in the second innings if they bat first. However, if they require additional batting depth, Ayush Badoni is a good candidate to be used as an impact player.

LSG Team Form

Although Lucknow Super Giants lost in the Eliminator last season, they won their previous three group stage matches.

LSG Predicted Playing 11

KL Rahul (c), Quinton de Kock, Devdutt Padikkal, Nicolas Pooran, Krunal Pandya, Marcus Stoinis, Deepak Hooda, Shivam Mavi, Shamar Joseph, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohsin Khan

Who will win Rajasthan Royals vs Lucknow Super Giants T20 Match?

This looks like being a fantastic contest between two sets of brilliant T20 players. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler are a formidable opening partnership but overall we have Lucknow Super Giants as the top side.

🏆 RR vs LSG Prediction

There is always an excellent atmosphere for an IPL fixture in Jaipur and we expect no different for this game on Sunday afternoon. It would be no surprise if both sides improved on their positions from the 2023 IPL and we are anticipating an entertaining match. Our prediction is for Lucknow Super Giants to be marginally better across all disciplines and to go on and win the game.
