TATA IPL 2022 – Prematch Analysis of RR vs LSG

Rajasthan Royals look to get back to winning ways against LSG.

TATA IPL 2022 - Prematch Analysis of RR vs LSG

TATA IPL 2022: RR and LSG are going to clash on Wankhede which means that the match is going to be a run-fest where we can expect scores in excess of 200+. Though this year’s Wankhede Pitches have not been that high scoring, we cannot rule out a high scoring encounter due to the red soil which is being used.

Jos Buttler would be roaring to go as he loves batting in Wankhede where he has accumulated so many runs that the same applies to KL Rahul who would like to score some runs under his belt. All in all, the openers can set the stage on fire which would make the Sunday Special for the spectators.

RR would be grumpy as they lost their previous match against RCB where they had the game in their bag. The likes of Yashasvi Jaiswal have to make sure that he is taking pressure off Buttler else the dashing wicket-keeper batter would be bogged down and suffer to time the ball.

Captain Sanju Samson should keep one thing in mind scoring runs aren’t only Buttler’s responsibility as the rest of the batters need to get into the act. Shimron Hetmyer needs to convert his starts as soon as possible as playing dot balls isn’t going to do a great favor for the team. All in all, the batters need to step up to the occasion and score as many runs as possible as no total is safe in this marquee event.

LSG is on a roll as they are one of the teams who are in the top 4. KL Rahul-led LSG would be happy that they have got a winning momentum which is a must in this high voltage Tournament. KL would be wary of the fact, that his team doesn’t get complacent. Rahul knows that his team needs a convincing victory rather than a last-ball finish as things can get ugly in such instances.

The team needs the likes of Evin Lewis to take responsibility for wrapping up the game as the likes of Badoni can pull off a heist one time but not every time. All in all, LSG have a balanced unit who can rock any team on their day but they need a proper performance; the bowlers are doing their best and making sure that the batters aren’t chasing a gigantic total which can be tough due to the scoreboard pressure.

Strategies for RR and LSG

RR need to make sure that they are not defending the target as Wankhede has small boundaries and most importantly chasing gets easier with the dew. The likes of Trent Boult and Chahal need to make sure that their 8 overs are productive and take 3-4 wickets in between themselves. All in all, Captain Sanju Samson and Kumar Sangakkara need to create some magic as winning won’t be easy.

LSG’s head Coach  Andy Flower and KL Rahul need to remain focused as RR have a destructive batting line up which can easily put a 200+ total on board.

They need to somehow restrict batters using sly techniques, otherwise, the game would be a one-sided affair. All in all, KL Rahul needs to be bang on with his captaincy and be smart and he should use bowlers for a short one-off over spell.
