In the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are all set to take on each other in the Eliminator at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Wednesday.
Both teams will only look to win the contest in order to stay alive in the competition. In their previous meeting, Challengers had beaten Super Giants by 18 runs. The winner of this contest will face the loser of Qualifier 1.
In the Qualifier 1, played between Gujarat Titans (GT) and Rajasthan Royals (RR), the track at the Eden Gardens produced a cracker of a game. Just like the previous game, fans can expect another high-scoring contest as the short boundaries at this venue come in as an advantage for batters, especially in the slog overs. The dew factor is likely to push captains opting to bowl first after winning the toss.
