LSG Vs RCB, IPL 2022, Eliminator: Lucknow Super Giants, Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Road To Playoffs

Third-placed in table Lucknow Super Giants take on fourth-placed team Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Eliminator of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata on Wednesday.

While KL Rahul-led LSG made it to the playoffs with a third-place finish in the league phase, RCB, captained by Faf du Plessis, finished fourth after a lot of drama towards the end.

Bangalore had ended their league stage with 16 points from 14 games but a poor net run rate meant they had to rely on the result of the Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians match. As DC lost the thrilling encounter and got restricted to 14 points from as many games, RCB marched into the playoffs.

RCB now play an Eliminator game against LSG, a team they had defeated by 18 runs when they met for the first time in the ongoing tournament at DY Patil Stadium, Mumbai on April 19, 2022. Two players – KL Rahul and Wanindu Hasaranga - from both sides will be the cynosure of all eyes when the sides face each other.

This is because Rahul with 537 runs is only behind leading run-scorer of the season Jos Buttler, while Hasaranga (24 wickets) is second on the list of leading wicket-takers.
