Kolkata, May 24: Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore will eye a place in the Qualifier 2 when they face each other in the IPL 2022 Eliminator at the Eden Gardens on Wednesday (May 25).
The loser will bow out of IPL 2022 while the winner can play the loser of Qualifier 1 in Qualifier 2 in search of IPL 2022 final berth.
The fifty that Virat Kohli made in their final league match against the Gujarat Titans will sure boost RCB’s confidence.
The RCB led by Faf du Plessis will also look at their win over LSG under KL Rahul in their only previous meeting as a comforting factor too.
Meanwhile, the LSG will hope for some big runs from their top order, especially from skipper Rahul and opening partner Quinton de Kock, and if the duo can fire in unison with some handy contributions from lower order batters, the Lucknow outfit can put RCB under pressure.
But the team calculations aside, the players from both the sides will be eager to achieve a list of these milestones in the LSG vs RCB match.
1. LSG vs RCB head to head
The Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore have played each only once previously in the IPL, on April 19. On that occasion, the RCB emerged an 18-run winner. Thus the Royal Challengers have a 1-0 lead in the LSG vs RCB head to head record.
