IPL 2024: LSG vs RR Today – Playing XI, Head-to-Head, Key Players, Pitch & Weather Update

Today’s IPL Match: Lucknow Super Giants vs. Rajasthan Royals KL Rahul’s Lucknow team At the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow, Super Giants and the soaring Rajasthan Royals of Sanju Samson will square off in Indian Premier League match number 44.

Former champions RR have looked in ominous form this season with seven wins from eight games, and they could be a tough nut to crack for LSG. LSG, meanwhile, too have played some good cricket and are placed fourth with five wins from eight games.

Playing XI Predictions for the 2024 IPL Match Between RR and LSG

Quinton de Kock, Marcus Stoinis, Devdutt Padikkal, Nicholas Pooran, Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Matt Henry, Ravi Bishnoi, and Mohsin Khan were the picks made by the Lucknow Super Giants for their starting lineup.

Impact Sub: Yash Thakur

One Lucknow Super Giants player to keep an eye on is: Marcus Stoinis gave LSG a six-wicket victory with one of his best innings of the IPL, going undefeated at 124 off 63 balls. The return to form of Stoinis bodes well for the LSG middle-order, where players like Deepak Hooda, Nicholas Pooran, and Devdutt Padikkal must assume greater accountability.

XI predicted by Rajasthan Royals: Sandeep Sharma, Riyan Parag, Shimron Hetmyer, Rovman Powell, Dhruv Jurel, R Ashwin, Trent Boult, Avesh Khan, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, and Sanju Samson (c & wk)

Impact Subs: Shubham Dubey and Yuzvendra Chahal

One Rajasthan Royals player to keep an eye on is: The batting of RR has been further reinforced by Yashasvi Jaiswal’s return to form. Jaiswal had been struggling a bit this season. Jaiswal blasted an 104 off 60 balls to lead his team to a comfortable nine-wicket victory in the most recent match against the Mumbai Indians while they were chasing a 180.
