Lucknow Super Giants will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2022 Eliminator on Wednesday evening at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The winner of this game will play the winner of Qualifier 1 in Qualifier 2 on Friday at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. KL Rahul-led side finished third in the points table and due to their consistent performances throughout the tournament, the franchise qualified for the playoffs in their maiden IPL campaign.
On the other hand, Royal Challengers Bangalore finished fourth after Mumbai Indians defeated Delhi Capitals in their last league stage game. Bangalore had an inconsistent performance in the 15th edition of IPL as the franchise won 8 and lost six games in the edition but ultimately that proved to be enough to remain in contention for the title.
KL Rahul has been the top run-getter for his side and has amassed 537 at an average of 48.82. Avesh Khan has taken the most wickets for the team, with 17 scalps at an average of 21.88. Quinton de Kock was brutal in their last game against Kolkata Knight Riders as he scored his maiden century of the season and second in IPL history. His performance will be crucial for Lucknow as the South African wicket-keeper batter comes with rich experience and has solid batting technique.
The likes of Deepak Hooda and Krunal Pandya will have a lot of responsibility in the middle order, while Avesh Khan, Mohsin Khan and Marcus Stoinis will lead the pace attack. Ravi Bishnoi and Krunal will take care of the spin department in a must-win game.
On the other hand, Bangalore will hope for the best performance from their dynamic batters like Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis, Glenn Maxwell, and Dinesh Karthik. Faf du Plessis has topped the charts with 443 runs at an average of 34.08. Wanindu Hasaranga has led the wicket-taking charts with 24 wickets at 15.08. Md. Siraj and Josh Hazlewood will also have to share the responsibility on their shoulders.
