Lucknow Super Giants vs Rajasthan Royals match preview

Lucknow Super Giants

Lucknow Super Giants occupy fourth spot on the table with 10 points and a net run-rate of 0.148. They have won five out of eight games and have lost three. In the most recent fixture, they defeated Chennai Super Kings by six wickets at the Chepauk. 

Bowling first, most of the LSG bowlers were ineffective as Chennai posted 210 on the board with Ruturaj Gaikwad registering a century. Chasing the target, Marcus Stoinis kept them in the hunt single-handedly. Nicholas Pooran played a cameo of 34 off 15 but Stoinis remained unbeaten to take his side over the line. He played one of the greatest knocks in the IPL, scoring 124* off 63. 

LSG possible XI: Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul (c/wk), Deepak Hooda, Marcus Stoinis, Nicholas Pooran, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Ravi Bishnoi, Matt Henry, Yash Thakur, Mohsin Khan 

Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals are at the top of the table in the IPL 2024 after eight games. They have 14 points to their credit, winning seven games and losing once. RR are coming off a comprehensive victory over Mumbai Indians by nine wickets.

Trent Boult and Sandeep Sharma provided them a great start while bowling first, reducing MI to 20/3. Sandeep registered his career-best figures of 5 for 18 in four overs as they restricted the opponents to 179. Yashasvi Jaiswal was the star in the run chase as he went on to smash an unbeaten 104 in 60 balls. Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson added 30s as they won the game with eight balls to spare.

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

Pitch and expected weather conditions

Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow has generally been a bowling-friendly venue but this season has seen some high scores. The average first innings score in the IPL at this venue last season was 152. This season, the number has gone up to 176. You can expect a balanced pitch for this game.

The forecast suggests the weather in Lucknow could be partly cloudy on Saturday evening. There is around an 87% cloud cover expected but rain should not be an issue. The temperature is likely to hover between 28-32 degree Celsius during the game-time.

Our LSG vs RR Dream11 prediction for this match

  • Wicketkeeper(s): Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul, Nicholas Pooran 
  • Batter(s): Yashasvi Jaiswal 
  • All-rounder(s): Marcus Stoinis, Krunal Pandya 
  • Bowler(s): Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal, Sandeep Sharma 
  • Recommended captain: Yashasvi Jaiswal 
  • Recommended vice-captain: KL Rahul 

Here in the LSG vs RR match prediction, let's shed some light on why we have opted for this XI for the Dream11 contest. As we don't know the kind of pitch they will serve, we will go with a balanced approach.

From the wicket-keepers, we have several quality options and we have picked five. None of Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul and Nicholas Pooran can be left out considering their form and value. Yashasvi Jaiswal is also a must pick now that he is back at his best. 

Among all-rounders, Marcus Stoinis is coming off a great century and should be picked while Krunal Pandya could be a big asset if the pitch has good turn on offer. In the bowling section, we have Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal and Sandeep Sharma, three of whom have been prolific wicket-takers this season. 

As for C and VC, we have backed Yashasvi Jaiswal and KL Rahul. Jaiswal hammered a century in the last game and Rahul has looked in good touch in recent games. 

Match prediction: Rajasthan Royals to win

These two teams have faced each other four times in the IPL with Rajasthan Royals winning three of those. Looking at the squads for this season, both teams look strong on paper. But RR hold an edge due to better quality in both departments. They have a stronger batting line-up and the bowling attack seems much more potent. Our match prediction is for Rajasthan Royals to win. 

Toss prediction: Lucknow Super Giants to win the toss and field first

The Ekana Cricket Stadium has hosted a total of 11 games in the IPL. The team batting first has won six and the chasing team has won four of those games. In the first three games played here, LSG won the toss and opted to bat first in all three but in the last game, they chose to field and won the game. Our toss prediction is Lucknow Super Giants will win the toss and opt to field first. 

Man of the match prediction: Yashasvi Jaiswal 

Yashasvi Jaiswal didn't have a great start to the season but slowly got back to his best. In the previous game, he smashed a superb century versus Mumbai Indians. Last season, Jaiswal had scored 625 runs at an average of 48 while striking at 163. He hit one century and five half centuries in that season. Back Jaiswal to come good in this game as well.

  • Lucknow Super Giants: 2.11 (PARIMATCH)
