Teams Status

Rajasthan Royals Form and Team News:

Rajasthan Royals will enter the contest against the Lucknow Super Giants as slight underdogs, largely because of their standing on the points table as they’ve won two matches out of the three played. 

In their previous outing against the Royal Challengers Bangalore, they suffered their first defeat in the campaign by four wickets. The management would be hoping that players will bounce back and produce a positive result in the upcoming fixtures. 

The Royals have one of the best squads in the competition where they’ve their basis covered. In the first three matches, their batting is in the lead compared to their bowling department where other than Yuzvendra Chahal and Trent Boult, not many have come to the party. 

The right-arm leggie has claimed seven wickets at an outstanding average of just nine whereas the New Zealand’s left-arm pacer has five wickets to his name. 

On the batting front, wicketkeeper-batter Jos Buttler is leading the charts after scoring 205 runs at an outstanding average of 102.50, which included a century and a half-century. 

He is well-supported by West Indies’ left-handed batter Shimron Hetmyer and captain Sanju Samson who have scored 109 and 93 runs, respectively. 

Lucknow Super Giants Form and Team News:

Lucknow Super Giants will enter the contest against the Rajasthan Royals as slight favorites, largely because of their recent form as they’ve won three in a row and have already registered six points after the first four matches.

Those results are much better than many would’ve anticipated from a new franchise before the start of the competition and the management would be hoping to see the player continuing their momentum in the matches to come.

Super Giants’ strength in their maiden campaign has been their strong batting where four players have already scored more than 100 runs.

Wicketkeeper-batter Quinton de Kock is leading the charts with 149 runs at an average of 37.25, which included two half-centuries.

Other than him, captain KL Rahul, all-rounder Deepak Hooda and young Ayush Badoni have scored 132, 130 and 102 runs, respectively.

In the bowling department, young pacer Avesh Khan is leading the charts with seven wickets to his name at an average of 18.14.

Tip: Jos Buttler to continue his excellent form for [email protected]

Swashbuckling batsman showcased decent form for Rajasthan Royals in the first three matches played so far this season. Buttler is expected to score well over 27.5 runs and is tipped to be top batsman for Rajasthan Royals. These odds have been sourced from Sportsbet.io.


Match 20 of the IPL 2022 is between two of the most in-form teams in the competition and it will be extremely hard to predict an outright winner.

On current form, the newcomers have an edge compared to the winners of the inaugural edition but on paper, Rajasthan looks like a more balanced team in terms of talent compared to the Super Giants who are depending heavily on their batting to fire.

Therefore, the prediction is for the Royals to secure their third win in the campaign and break Lucknow’s winning streak.
