RR vs LSG : IPL 2023 squad news
The IPL return to Jaipur’s Sawai Mansingh Stadium for the first time since 2019. Jaipur was the stronghold of Rajasthan, who won 32 matches here and lost 15. With eight points – two more than other sides – in five games, he also sit atop the points table.
Lucknow are one of five teams in the league to have picked up six points from five matches, but their net rate of +0.761 is the best among them. They finish second in the league.
With Jos Buttler looking fit, Rajasthan have a full squad at their disposal, but so does Lucknow, whose top order has consistently kept Quinton de Kock, no less, out of the XI.
Rajasthan’s concern has been the form of Devdutt Padikkal and Riyan Parag, and they could leave one out for Joe Root or Donovan Pereira as they swap Adam Zampa for M Ashwin.
