RR vs LSG will be another crackling affair as the two teams hope to find a decent rhythm going their way

RR vs LSG: In a hard-hitting battle of two prolific sides in the latest edition of the IPL, the Rajasthan Royals and the Lucknow Super Giants will be colliding with each other in a midweek clash as the Sawai Mansingh Indoor Stadium gears up for the epic clash.

The Rajasthan Royals were in terrific touch as they outclassed the reigning champions in a thriller in their preceding fixture. A 26-ball-56 from Shimron Hetmyer provided a grandstand finish to what seemed like a lost cause for the Royals at one point in time. He finished the charge Tthat was started by the skipper, Sanju Samson who blasted 60 from 32 balls.

The Lucknow Super Giants will need some work to do as they slumped down in woeful fashion as they were surpassed by the Punjab Kings in a modest scoring encounter with wickets falling aplenty for both sides. KL Rahul played a captain’s knock, scoring 74 off 56 while Kyle Mayers had a decent start, scoring 29 off 23. Despite Ravi Bishnoi and Yudhir Singh plundering 4 wickets between them, Punjab managed to seal the bragging rights in the dying embers.


This is going to be an important clash for both the sides as Rajasthan Royals would be desperate to keep the momentum in their favour and in a season where the Giants have drifted in and out of form, they would be hoping to locate some consistency in their sails.

RR vs LSG: Pitch and Weather Report

The surface isn’t magnanimously kind to the batters. There is a good deal of lateral movement on offer and some decent bounce on offer. The average batting score is 127 batting first. Hence, expect this to be a modest-scoring contest but with ample thrill and drama.

The weather is going to be hot and humid with no prediction of any thunderstorm or rain and hence, this game is to be a 40-overs affair unless a team slides into oblivion.
