    RR vs LSG Live: Here’s what KL Rahul said at the toss

    “We would have bowled first as well. First game here. It’s important that we start well and put a good total on the board. We’ve executed well in most games. We have had clarity with bat on ball. All three skills have been good. We are quite settled. We’ll try to keep that left-hand, right-hand combination going. Quinny still misses out. He’ll just have to wait for some more time. I have enjoyed opening with Quinton.”

    “We are going to bowl first. It looks like a really good wicket. We are very happy to come back to Jaipur and play after 4 years. It’s all about how we react under pressure. We have a fearless attitude. We have one change. Jason comes back in for Zampa.”

    RR vs LSG Live: Pitch report

    “No tall stands, so there’s a bit of a breeze factor. Pretty substantial breeze that’s blowing across, it might come into play. This is not a dead-centre pitch on this ground. (Square boundaries) 62m short boundary, 68m on the other side, but straight is 70 and upwards (78m). If you’re going to hit straight, make sure you’ve got a lot of power behind the shot. So there’s an incentive to play cross-batted on this pitch. I find this pitch on the harder side. It might be a little bit two-paced as well. There’s a nice covering of grass. It might skid on a little. I don’t think we’ll see a lot of bounce. Doesn’t look like a turner. First half of the game may be something for the spinners. Win the toss, you want to bowl first on this surface.”

    RR vs LSG Live: LSG’s strong batting line-up

    Lucknow have no dearth of power in their batting, with Kyle Mayers at the top and Nicholas Pooran and Marcus Stoinis in the middle capable of pulverising any opposition. While Mayers did his job in the powerplay, he, perhaps, needs to think about building partnerships after the first six overs, especially with Deepak Hooda struggling to get runs at the top.

    RR vs LSG Live: LSG got defeated by PBKS

    In the last match against the Punjab Kings, Lucknow couldn’t get enough runs in the middle overs, leaving them 10-15 runs short in the end. While KL Rahul returning to form with a sizzling 56-ball 74 is a big positive, LSG will rue the scoring opportunities they squandered in the middle overs.
