Rajasthan Royals (RR) will take on Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in Match 20 of IPL 2022 at Mumbai’s Wankhede stadium on Sunday, April 10.

The Royals are coming into the game with a loss in their previous fixture. The Sanju Samson-led franchise started their campaign with back-to-back wins over Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Mumbai Indians (MI). But they lost to Faf du Plessis’ Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) last week.

LSG, on the other hand, are on a three-match winning streak in the ongoing tournament. After losing their opening encounter against Gujarat Titans (GT), the KL Rahul-led outfit bounced back in style with victories over SRH, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Delhi Capitals (DC).

Pitch report

So far, the Wankhede pitch has been a batter’s paradise, with the ball coming nicely onto the bat. In the second innings of the match, dew has made batting even easier, and something similar is expected during the match between RR and LSG.
