Lucknow Super Giants will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL 2022 Eliminator at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The KL Rahul team finished third in the points table and are coming back from a thrilling encounter against Kolkata Knight Riders in the previous game. After being benched for their last league match, the team is likely to bring back regular players like Krunal Pandya and Aayush Badoni for the next match.

On the other hand, Royal Challengers Bangalore finished their league stage campaign in fourth place with a victory over Gujarat Titans and Mumbai Indians also helped them break into the top four. The team led by Faf du Plessis was impressive in both departments and the franchise will be greatly relieved by the return of their talisman Virat Kohli. Mohammad Siraj can return to the playing XI in place of Siddharth Kaul.
