Rajasthan Royals will take on the Lucknow Super Giants in Match 20 of IPL 2022 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The Royals suffered their first defeat of the season in their previous game against the Royal Challengers Bangalore and they had the game in their hands for the most part. Nevertheless, they have won two out of their three games so far and will be looking to bolster their batting a little bit with the addition of Rassie van der Dussen.
On the other hand, the Lucknow Super Giants have been on a roll with three consecutive wins & maintaining a good position on the points table, and have won two close encounters as well so far which will be a great boost to them. The KL Rahul-led side will have the services of Marcus Stoinis while youngster Ayush Badoni has been quite impressive with finishing off the games. Lucknow’s investment in all-rounders in the mega auction has paid off really well with seven bowling options at their disposal.

The Wankhede Stadium has assisted the fast bowlers really well so far and the batters have found it tricky on the wicket. It will be very important not to lose early wickets as the teams batting first haven’t been able to notch up big scores so far. The captain that wins the toss will be looking to bowl first considering the dew factor which might have a big effect later in the evening.

Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the Match: KL Rahul
KL Rahul wasn’t quite at his best in the previous game against the Delhi Capitals and took a lot of time initially which added some pressure towards the end of the run chase. The right-hander hit a 25-ball 24 with one four and one six, and he definitely is a better player than the scorecard showed. He will be looking to make up for the low score in the previous innings.
Probable best bowler of the Match: Ravi Bishnoi
Ravi Bishnoi, meanwhile, has been a revelation for the Lucknow Super Giants this season and has been among the wickets column consistently. The leg spinner picked up 2 for 22 in his four-over spell in the previous match and has been hitting the right lengths at good speeds which has made it tough for the batters to go hard at him. He will be looking to continue his impressive run with the ball.
