The game between Rajasthan Royals and Lucknow Super Giants promises to be a thrilling encounter, with both teams boasting of some exciting players. As a fantasy cricket enthusiast, choosing the right Dream XI team is crucial to winning big.
KL Rahul scored his first half-century of the season in the last game and will be looking to continue his form. With 155 runs in five games at an average of 31 and a strike rate of 113.13, he should be a sure-shot selection in your team. Jos Buttler, who has been in great form, will be another player to watch out for. The Englishman has made 204 runs in five games at an average of 40.8 and a strike rate of 163.2.
Kyle Mayers, who has been keeping Quinton de Kock out with his good performance, should also be chosen in your XI. Yudhvir Singh Charak had a dream debut in the last game and is likely to keep his place. However, LSG would also be keen to find a place for Amit Mishra. The 32-year-old all-rounder Krunal Pandya has been performing well, with four wickets in five games and 76 runs. He has won one Player of the Match award this season.
The 21-year-old batter Yashasvi Jaiswal has been one of the top performers for the Royals this season. He has made 136 runs in five games at an average of 27.2 and a strike rate of 149.45. Chahal is the joint-highest wicket-taker in the tournament, with 11 wickets in four games at an average of 14.27, an economy of 7.85, and a strike rate of 10.9. Mark Wood is the current purple cap holder in the tournament, with 11 wickets in four games at an average of 11.81, an economy of 8.12, and a strike rate of 8.7.
Sanju Samson played a splendid knock of 60 runs off 32 deliveries in the last game, including six sixes and three fours. Samson has scored 157 runs in five games at an average of 31.4 and a strike rate of 165.26. Ashwin has taken six wickets in five games at an average of 23.16, an economy of 6.95, and a strike rate of 20.
It will be interesting to see if RR continue to back Riyan Parag. The 21-year-old has returned scores of 7, 20, 7, and 5 this season. In four innings, Ayush Badoni has managed just 76 runs for the Super Giants. Dhruv Jurel has been consistent with his performance and can shine tonight.
