Star bowler of the match
Yuzvendra Chahal is proving a match-winner for Rajasthan Royals this season as he is taking crucial wickets in the middle overs and also blocking runs.
He will most likely be the best bowler of the match.
Star batsman of the match
Jos Buttler is in great form and he is the leading run-scorer of this season.
Buttler has also scored a hundred this season and he is expected to shine once again for his side.
Star Wicketkeeper of the match
Sanju Samson has been brilliant behind the stumps with his wicket-keeping gloves.
Rajasthan’s skipper has also scored some good runs with the bat as well and he will be the star wicketkeeper in this match.
Star all-rounder of the match
Jason Holder is a wicket-taking bowler in the middle overs and he provides the firepower to the batting lineup in the death overs.
Who will win?
Both Lucknow Super Giants and Rajasthan Royals are very strong batting sides.
Their batting line-ups have the ability to chase down any total but bowling can prove to be the difference between these two sides.
Lucknow has a good but quite an inexperienced bowling attack while Rajasthan Royals seems to have all bases covered in their bowling line-up with the likes of Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravi Ashwin, Trent Boult, Navdeep Saini, and Prasidh Krishna.
Hence, our prediction for match 20 is that Rajasthan Royals will beat Lucknow Super Giants.
