IPL MATCH PREDICTION: Lucknow Super Giants vs Royal Challengers Bangalore, Eliminator
The Lucknow Super Giants will face the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL 2022 eliminator at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The team led by KL Rahul ended third in the points standings, and they are coming off a nail-biting thriller against Kolkata Knight Riders in the previous game. After being benched for their last league game, the team is expected to bring back regulars like Krunal Pandya and Ayush Badoni for the forthcoming match.
Royal Challengers Bangalore, on the other hand, finished fourth in the league stage after defeating the Gujarat Titans, and were also propelled to the top four by the Mumbai Indians. The Faf du Plessis-led team performed admirably in both departments, and the franchise will be relieved to see their talisman Virat Kohli return to form. Mohammad Siraj could return to the starting lineup in place of Siddharth Kaul.
Lucknow Super Giants vs Royal Challengers Bangalore, ELIMINATOR, IPL 2022
Date & time: 25th May, 2022
Venue: Eden Gardens, Kolkata
Given the Eden Gardens pitch's history, both teams will attempt to stack their sides with a lot of spin options, but the cloudy cover may benefit the fast bowlers as well. After winning the toss, both captains will look to bat first because any score exceeding 150 will be difficult to chase down in a high-pressure match.
