Rajasthan Royals (RR) will lock horns with Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in the fourth match of the 17th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Sunday (March 24). The match will be the first for both teams this season and Royals have the opportunity to get their campaign off to a winning start as they will have the home advantage.

Rajasthan Royals had a really good IPL 2023 season but failed to make it to the playoffs by a whisker. They finished the season in the fifth position with seven wins and the same number of losses in 14 games. On the other hand, Lucknow Super Giants finished the league stage last season in the third spot and qualified for the playoffs.

LSG ran into Mumbai Indians in the Eliminator and lost the fixture by a mammoth margin of 81 runs.

Sawai Mansingh Stadium Pitch Report

The Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur has hosted plenty of IPL games in the past but has played host to only one T20I fixture thus far. The pitch at the venue offers plenty of bounce and carry for the seamers who hit the deck hard. Batters also enjoy batting at the ground as the ball comes smoothly onto the willow and the outfield is lightning quick.
