Rajasthan Royals (Match Odds – 1.99)
In their last game, Rajasthan Royals scored 160/6 in 20 overs with Ravi Ashwin (50 runs) and Devdutt Padikkal (48 runs) in the middle order. Jos Buttler has been quiet in the last few games and will be looking for a big score in this one. With Shimron Hetmyer currently unavailable, Sanju Samson, Riyan Parag, and Van Der Dussen must provide lower order firepower.
Prasidh Krishna, Trent Boult, and Kuldeep Sen of Rajasthan Royals have been excellent as a unit in the power play overs, but they have leaked a lot of runs in the death overs. In the middle overs, Ravi Ashwin and Yuzi Chahal have been their trump cards, with Chahal leading the tournament with 24 wickets.
The top players of Rajasthan Royals to watch for in this match are Ravi Ashwin, Jos Buttler, Yuzi Chahal.

Lucknow Super Giants vs Rajasthan Royals Match Prediction
Rajasthan Royals has a strong batting unit, but they rely heavily on Buttler and Samson for big scores, and they lack depth in the batting order without Hetmyer. They also have a good bowling attack with pace and spin bowlers, but the lack of a sixth bowling option could hurt them if anyone has a bad day. Lucknow Super Giants has a deep batting lineup, with players up to No. 8 capable of hitting big shots. They also have a strong pace quartet, and while spin is a concern, their all-rounders should easily fill that gap. We expect Lucknow Super Giants to win this match because they have been playing better recently.
Lucknow Super Giants is the favourite to beat Rajasthan Royals at the odds of 1.79.
- Team Lucknow Super Giants has 16 points from 12 games, and a win would put them in second place in the play-offs.
- Rajasthan Royals has 14 points from 12 games and must win their remaining matches to remain in the safe zone.
