Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore will play the Eliminator game of IPL 2022 on Wednesday. It will be the second game between both teams this season. RCB won the first game by 18 runs after scoring 181 runs for the loss of 6 wickets. LSG won 9 out of 14 matches and missed finishing in the second position in the points due to a lower net run rate than Rajasthan Royals.
RCB managed to win 8 out of 14 matches and finished in the fourth position in the points table. They defeated Gujarat Titans in the previous match by 8 wickets after chasing a target of 169 runs in 18.4 overs. Former captain Virat Kohli scored 73 runs off 54 deliveries and won the Player of the Match award. RCB would be hoping for a similar performance from Kohli in this game as well.
