However, they faced a few setbacks in subsequent games, securing four victories out of seven matches, which places them fourth in the league standings. On the other side, Lucknow Super Giants have shown similar performance dynamics, holding the same points but positioned fifth due to net run rate differences.

Historically, out of the four matches played between these teams, Lucknow leads with a 2-1 advantage, with one match being washed out.

Teams chasing have won two out of the three matches played, suggesting a slight advantage for the side batting second. With no rain forecast and temperatures expected to hover around 35 degrees Celsius, captains might opt to bowl first after winning the toss, considering the dew factor and other conditions.
