Rajasthan Royals: The Sanju Samson-led side has a powerful batting line-up that can hit boundaries for fun. Jos Buttler is in red-hot form and stopping him would be the biggest challenge for LSG on Sunday night. Meanwhile, Devdutt Padikkal and Shimron Hetmyer are also in good touch alongside skipper Samson. However, it is the form of opener Yashasvi Jaiswal that would worry the side and it might look to drop him for Sunday’s game. Yuzvendra Chahal is in terrific form with the ball in hand and Trent Boult has also complemented him. However, Navdeep Saini would look to put a better performance.
Lucknow Super Giants: While KL Rahul has been impressive so far as a captain and a batter, his teammates too have performed collectively to see the side win three of its four matches in IPL 2022. Evin Lewis, Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni and Quinton de Kock all have peformed well for the side so far, while the addition of Jason Holder has further bolstered the team’s confidence by providing more balance. LSG look a complete side as Avesh Khan and Ravi Bishnoi too have delivered with the ball.
This will be the first time in IPL that Lucknow Super Giants and Rajasthan Royals will be playing against each other as LSG have joined the tournament this year itself.
