Lucknow Super Giants are all set to take on the Rajasthan Royals in their next encounter at the Brabourne Stadium. The KL Rahul-led side is coming off a big loss against the table-toppers Gujarat Titans in their previous game and they will be looking to redeem themselves quickly with the playoffs approaching. With eight wins in 12 games, Lucknow Super Giants are sitting at second position in the points table.
On the other hand, the Rajasthan Royals have suffered three losses in their last four games after starting off with a bang in the tournament. The Sanju Samson-led side was outplayed by the Delhi Capitals in the previous game despite putting up a decent total on the board but are likely to stick with the same playing XI for the upcoming fixture as well.
Venue: Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai

Brabourne Stadium saw a high-scoring encounter in the last game played at the venue and the same could be expected again as well with the wicket playing really well. The shorter boundaries will yet again come into play and the team batting first will need plenty of runs to defend the totals. The skipper winning the toss will be looking to bowl first.

Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the Match
Quinton de Kock:
Quinton de Kock has been outstanding for the Lucknow Super Giants so far at the top of the order and he has stepped up most of the times when Rahul has been dismissed early. The South African wicketkeeper-batter has scored 355 runs in 12 games this season and has been constantly adding up runs to his tally as well. He will be looking to make up for the failure in the previous game.
Probable best bowler of the Match
Mohsin Khan has been one of the finds of the season and the LSG side has reaped a lot of rewards in the powerplay so far. The lanky left-arm seamer has hit the hard lengths consistently and his economy rate has been quite phenomenal in the games he has played. He was the pick of the bowlers in the previous game against GT with 1 for 18 in his four overs and will be looking to continue with his impressive form.
