Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will look to climb up the stairs of qualification when they take on Rajasthan Royals in the 63rd match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 on 15th May (Sunday) at the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai.  


Lucknow Super Giants have 16 points from 12 matches, and a win on Sunday will help the KL Rahul-led side get a tag of 'Q', and they can join the table-toppers in the knockouts. 


While the likes of Quinton de Kock, Deepak Hooda and KL Rahul have been their top scorers for the team, their bowling attack has done the damage for them. They were completely outplayed by the Gujarat Titans in their most recent fixture and must have taken learnings from the previous game.  


Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, have 14 points from 12 matches and are currently third in the points table. A win in this match will take them to 16 points, and that is what makes it a must-win encounter for the Royals. 


If they lose it, it will eventually put them in a must-win scenario for their last league match. With two valuable points up for grabs, both teams should give their best in what promises to be a thrilling encounter in Mumbai.

Pitch Report: The pitch at Brabourne Stadium has been pretty supportive to the batters in the last few days, and the same trend is expected to be followed on Sunday. The pacers are likely to find enough pace and bounce from the pitch, and as the game progresses, spinners will come into the picture. The team winning the toss might look to bowl first. Anything over 185 runs would be a safe score for the team batting first.
