Lucknow is gaining good momentum, especially playing at home. However, it is the Royals who are likely to edge them out, considering how good they have been so far. I am backing the Royals to win here.

  • Lucknow Super Giants have lost 3 of their 4 matches against Rajasthan (IPL)
  • Rajasthan Royals have won 7 of their last 8 matches (IPL)
  • Rajasthan Royals have won their last 3 away matches (IPL)

Head to Head


Lucknow and Rajasthan have met in four matches so far. Of these, the Royals have won three, while the Super Giants have won only once.

These teams played in the fourth match of the season in Jaipur, earlier this season, when the Royals won by 20 runs. Rajasthan’s score of 193 for 4 was based on Sanju Samson’s unbeaten 82. Nicholas Pooran (64) tried his best to rally the chase, but the Super Giants fell short.

Lucknow Super Giants Form


Lucknow are fourth in the standings ahead of Friday’s matches, with ten points from eight matches. They have five wins to their kitty, two of which have come in their last two matches.

The Super Giants last played in Chennai and trumped the Super Kings by six wickets. The 211-run target was mastered with Marcus Stoinis (124*) pacing the chase perfectly, with Pooran providing good support.

Lucknow’s batting is led by KL Rahul (302 runs), while three other batters have aggregated 200+ runs. Bowling has been up and down, with only Yash Thakur’s nine wickets being the most by their bowlers.

Lucknow Super Giants Team News


The Super Giants played the same team in their last two matches, but if they fancy a change, it could be in the bowling unit. Mayank Yadav’s fitness could be crucial to getting into the XI, while Naveen-ul-Haq may also look to come back into the side.

Rajasthan Royals Form


The Royals have been the team to beat so far, with 14 points from eight matches. They are leading the tally by a fair bit and have won their last three matches.

In their last match, the Royals trumped the Mumbai Indians by nine wickets with eight balls to spare, playing in Jaipur. Sandeep Sharma’s five-wicket haul helped them keep Mumbai to a below-par 179, which was then galloped by Yashasvi Jaiswal’s 104.

Riyan Parag and Sanju Samson have 300+ runs for the Royals this season, while two others have scored at least 225. With the ball, the peerless Yuzvendra Chahal continues to turn the clock back and has 13 wickets.

Sandeep Sharma made a strong comeback for the Royals in their last match. They could use the same XI.
