Two matches are to be played in the exciting Sunday of the Indian Premier League. The second match of the day (63rd) will be played from 7:30 pm at the CCI-Brabourne Stadium. This match is to be played between the number two team Lucknow Super Giants and Rajasthan Royals, who are moving towards the play-off of the IPL points table. In this match, both the teams would like to enter the play-offs by registering a win. On the other hand, Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), standing a step away in second place, can go with this strong playing XI to win the match.
Opening pair: KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock
This season, the pair of captain and wicket keeper of Lucknow Super Giants have been seen batting in the open. Captain KL Rahul has scored two centuries in the season, while Quinton de Kock is playing his captain very well. Quinton de Kock and KL Rahul are also giving a good start to the team. Today again both the players will be seen trying to give a good start to the innings.
Along with the middle order, the burden of finishing will be on the shoulders of these players.
The trio of Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya and Ayush Badoni will be seen in the middle order against Rajasthan Royals. Talking about this trio, Deepak Hooda’s bat is consistently scoring runs this season. So at the same time Ayush Badoni is playing big shots in the middle order as well as in the end. But Krunal Pandya’s form is disappointing a bit. In this season of IPL, he has been seen battling for runs.
There are two foreign players in the team to finish the match. All rounders Marcus Stoinis and Jason Holder will be responsible for finishing the match well. Against KKR, both these players had changed the course of the innings for 5 consecutive sixes in the 19th over.
