LSG Vs RCB Playing XI-Toss: The losing team in this match will be out of the tournament.
IPL 2022 Eliminator1 Lucknow Super Giants vs Royal Challengers Bangalore toss: Lucknow has reached the playoff in its very first season, while Bangalore is playing the playoff match for the third consecutive season.
The first finalists of IPL 2022 have been decided and Gujarat Titans have made it to the title match in their very first season. Lucknow Super Giants, who is debuting this season on the same lines as Gujarat, would also like to make it to the final in the first try, but their path is a bit difficult as Lucknow will have to win at least two matches. The first match in this episode is the Eliminator match, in which Lucknow and Royal Challengers Bangalore (LSG vs RCB) are face to face. In this match to be held at Eden Gardens in Kolkata, Lucknow captain KL Rahul has won the toss and decided to bowl first. Whichever team wins this match will have to take on Rajasthan Royals in the second qualifier, who lost to Gujarat in the first qualifier held on Tuesday. At the same time, the losing team will not get a second chance like Rajasthan and will be out.
If we talk about the performance of both the teams, Lucknow won 9 out of 14 matches in the league stage and reached the playoffs with 18 points. Lucknow had to stay at the third position only because of the lag in the net run rate. At the same time, Bangalore’s performance was also fluctuating and on the basis of some hard work and then with a little luck, the team qualified with 16 points despite the negative run-rate. Bangalore got a chance to play in the playoffs for the third consecutive season.
As far as the conflict between these two teams is concerned, there was only one match in the league stage between Lucknow and Bangalore. In that match, Bangalore won by 18 runs on the back of excellent 96 runs by Captain Du Plessis and 4 wickets by Josh Hazlewood.
