Time to play the game! Lucknow are done with the customary huddle and now their players are spreading on the field. Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal are the openers for Rajasthan. The former has lost a bit of steam of late but the latter has found some form in the last two games. The Pink team would hope that both click this evening and provide them with a strong start. Mohsin Khan to start proceedings with the new ball. The countdown is over, let's play...
KL Rahul, the captain of Lucknow, says that they wanted to bowl first anyway. Adds that the wicket looks a good one to bat on.

Says that they did not bat well in their previous game and they want to correct those mistakes in this game against Rajasthan. Informs that they have made one change to their side - Ravi Bishnoi comes in for Karan Sharma.

Tells that they want to keep it very simple, and it's important to maintain a balanced state of mind. Smiles and says that they didn't talk about qualifications in the team meeting.

TOSS - Rajasthan have won the toss and they have elected to BAT first.
Our morning started with the tragic news of Andrew Symonds passing away in a car accident. He was just 46. We were still mourning the demise of the great Shane Warne and yet another superstar of the game left us for his heavenly abode. Symonds was a true character of the game! He was a one of a kind all-rounder, who used to bat with great striking power, and had a bag of tricks when it came to bowling, seam-up, cross-seam, off-spinners and what not! Not many will disagree that he was one of the best fielders during his playing days and his athleticism was second to none. He had the physique of a rugby player, and we all remember how he shoulder-charged a streaker and floored him. Andrew Symonds lived his cricketing life on his terms and was controversy's favourite child but all said and done, he was an icon. We will miss him. Rest in peace, Roy.
Update from Match 62 - Gujarat are cruising along nicely against Chennai at the Wankhede Stadium, as they require just 26 runs off 30 balls, with 7 wickets in hand.
Rajasthan did start their season well but have been inconsistent in the business end of the tournament. They have managed to win just one of their last four games and badly need a win, if they are to smoothly qualify for the playoffs. Their premier batter, Jos Buttler has failed to fire in the second half of the league, and overall, they have been below-par with the bat, barring the Punjab game. They have some quality bowlers in their ranks and will be keen to put their best foot forward in this all-important clash. Who will come out on top in this mouth-watering fixture? We shall find that soon. Stick around for the toss and team news.
Lucknow were on a 4-game winning streak until they met Gujarat in Pune. They were handed a comprehensive defeat at the hands of Gujarat and it were Lucknow's batters who failed to deliver as the KL Rahul-led side was bundled out for 82. Although, they are sitting at the top half of the points table and a win against Rajasthan would ensure that they book a spot in the playoffs and finish in the top two.
The race for playoffs spot is heating up in the Indian T20 League and we have another cracker of a game coming our way, folks. It is Lucknow taking on Rajasthan in game number 63 at the Brabourne Stadium. On that note, a very warm welcome to our coverage.
