LSG is set to play in their home against the orange army, Sunrisers Hyderabad. Even though Lucknow started this season well, they could not extend their winning streak against CSK at Chennai.
SRH, after a big defeat against RR, is set to change their own momentum. Addedly, the Proteas players of both sides, Quinton de Kock, Heinrich Klaasen, and Aiden Markram, will be available for this game. And this makes the excitement go even higher, which enhances the competition part in this game.
Time: 7.30 PM IST
Venue: The Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow.
It was a great batting wicket in the first game played in this ground. In addition, the dew factor here makes it very difficult to grip the ball and field too.
What to Expect?
The comeback of the Proteas players to the side will improve the pace of the game. Spinners might find it really difficult to bowl at this condition.

Fantasy Picks for the SRH vs RR Match
Captain : K Mayers
With two consecutive half centuries, K Mayers seems to be in great space at present. His shot making is well suited for the kind of pitches he is playing here in India.
Vice captain : H Brook
H Brook is yet another sensation in making. His runs for the English team has put his map here in this IPL. And he will definitely use his touch to make a great innings.
Wicket keepers : N Pooran, Q de Kock
Both the left handed batters don’t need any introduction. When they blow hot they will ignite the slump.
Batsmen : KL Rahul, M Agarwal, H Brook
Both KL Rahul and M Agarwal haven’t got the innings they would prefer. But what makes them outstanding is their technique. The technically-sound batters can make the impact at any point of this tournament.
All rounders : K Mayers, W Sundar
W Sundar wasn’t able to deliver with both bat and ball in the last game. His ability to bring in all round performance makes him an obvious choice.
Bowlers : T Natarajan, M Wood, Farooqi, R Bishnoi
M Wood, the purple cap holder doesn’t need to be left behind.
T Natarajan and Farooqi are two different bowlers who bowl with their left arm. Both have the ability to pick wickets whenever they are brought in to attack.
R Bishnoi is effective to both left handed and right handed batsmen with his googlies and different angles he could bring in the ball.
Winning Dream11 Team
Mark Wood has been in red-hot form in the first two games with the sheer pace at his strength. The English pacer is leading the wickets tally at this tournament stage.
KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock are the record openers of the last season. With the form Kyle Mayers is in, it will be curious to see how LSG handles the trio at the top of the order. Will they continue the in-form pair or bring De Kock to the equation? One has to wait and see.
