Hello and welcome to our live coverage of Lucknow Super Giants vs Royal Challengers Bangalore IPL 2022 Eliminator match from Eden Gardens, Kolkata. Faf du Plessis and Co. will lock horns against newbies Lucknow in the high-octane eliminator where both teams will give their all to move forward in the tournament. RCB faced ups and downs in the league stage as they managed to qualify for the playoffs after relying on other teams’ results. They played inconsistent cricket so far in the tournament as their bowling unit has been up to the mark in the last few matches. However, the return of Virat Kohli’s form is a great sign for the team as the former skipper slammed a match-winning half-century against Gujarat Titans. While other stars of the team like Faf du Plessis, Glenn Maxwell and Dinesh Karthik are also having a good season individually.
On the other hand, Lucknow Super Giants impressed many in their first season of IPL as KL Rahul led his troops to the playoffs by winning 9 out of 14 matches in the league stage. The flamboyant opener led his team from the front by scoring 500-plus runs for his side. They have put collective efforts into the tournament but there are still some flaws in their bowling department which leaked too many runs in the slog overs.
