Rajasthan are on a three-match winning spree while Lucknow aren’t far behind with two wins from their last three. Home advantage could tilt the scales in the favour of the Royals but my pick is in the sixes market. I am backing Rajasthan Royals to score more 6s than Lucknow Super Giants.

  • Rajasthan Royals have scored the most 6s of the match in all 5 matches in 2023 (IPL)
  • Rajasthan Royals have conceded 5.00 sixes per game in 2023 (IPL)
  • The last 6 matches at this venue have been won by the team batting second (IPL)
  • Lucknow Super Giants have conceded the most match 6s in 2 of their last 4 matches, tying in the other two (IPL)
  • Lucknow Super Giants have conceded 7.80 sixes per game in 2023 (IPL)

Head to Head


These sides met just twice last season, which were the first matches between them in this competition. Rajasthan Royals won both the matches, the first by 24 runs and the second by three runs.

Trent Boult was the player of the match in the first game with 2/18 while Yuzvendra Chahal’s 4/41 won him the honours in the second.

Rajasthan Royals Form


Rajasthan Royals have eight points from five matches, winning four. Their victories have come against Hyderabad, Delhi, Chennai and Gujarat.

Jos Buttler’s 204 runs and Shimron Hetmyer’s 183 have been their pillar of strength with the bat. As for the bowling, Chahal with 11 wickets has continued where he finished last season.

The confidence in the Royals camp is really high after breaking the jinx of three straight losses to Gujarat.

Rajasthan Royals Team News


Jason Holder sat out of the previous game due to illness and could be back in contention for this match.

Lucknow Super Giants Form


Lucknow Super Giants have six points from five matches with three wins. Their wins have come against Delhi, Hyderabad and Bangalore.

Four batters have aggregated more than 100 runs for the Super Giants with Kyle Mayers (168) and KL Rahul (155) leading the line. Bowling has been about Mark Wood (11) and Ravi Bishnoi (eight) who are performing consistently.

The challenge for the Super Giants would be to find the right pace in the first ten overs, especially when Mayers falls early.

Lucknow Super Giants Team News


Injured left-arm pacer Mohsin Khan who missed the five matches this season has joined Lucknow’s camp. It would be interesting to see if he’s straight away thrown into the mix.

Verdict

Rajasthan Royals and Lucknow Super Giants have started their 2023 campaigns on the front foot, winning four and three matches respectively. While the Royals look good to continue that run and become the first team to get into double-digit points this campaign, I am not backing them in the win market. My choice is to dip into the 6s market with Rajasthan Royals likely to score more match 6s.
