Marcus Stoinis and Jason Holder provide power late in the order while Avesh Khan (16 wickets from 10 matches) along with Mohsin Khan are their top wicket-takers.

RR: Orange cap holder Jos Buttler (625 from 12 innings) at the top, Sanju Samson in the middle and Rassie van der Dussen at the lower-middle order provide an excellent balance to the line-up. Trent Boult with exceptional swing and Yuzvendra Chahal (23 wickets from 12 matches) with his spin will lead the bowling unit. 

Lucknow Super Giants vs Rajasthan Royals IPL 2022 prediction

Lucknow Super Giants are missing a consistent player in their middle order but their batting at the top and seam bowling has helped them retain their position in the top two of the points table. Rajasthan Royals have a settled line-up but if Jos Buttler gets out quickly, Lucknow Super Giants have the potential to run away with the match.
