KKR vs LSG Match Preview: The 15th season of the Indian Premier League is in turmoil. Kolkata Knight Riders and Lucknow Super Giants teams will face each other tomorrow in IPL 2022. KKR need a big win to keep their playoff hopes alive. While IPL’s bleak hopes of reaching the playoffs need a big win in their last league match, Lucknow Super Giants will look to win this match on Wednesday to make it to the top of the table.
KKR are sixth in the table with 12 points from six wins from 13 matches and even if the team manages to win this match by a huge margin, it will still have to rely on the results of other matches to qualify for the playoffs. The Lucknow team is one step away from securing a place in the play-offs. Team 16 points from 13 matches and a win in this match will ensure their playoff ticket.
Shreyas Iyer-led team defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by 54 runs in the last match due to the all-rounder game of Andre Russell and the strong performance of the bowlers. Russell and Sam Billings took the team to 177 for six after the top order faltered in this match and then the bowlers did their job brilliantly.
Ajinkya Rahane at the top of the order struggled throughout the season. However, he was ruled out of the current season due to a hamstring strain. Last season’s hero Venkatesh Iyer disappointed this season. Nitish Rana and Shreyas Iyer have failed to deliver consistently.
Teams are as follows:
Lucknow Super Giants: Lokesh Rahul (Captain), Manan Vohra, Evin Lewis, Manish Pandey, Quinton de Kock, Ravi Bishnoi, Dushmanta Chamira, Mohsin Khan, Mayank Yadav, Ankit Rajput, Avesh Khan, Andrew Tye, Marcus Stoinis, Kyle Meyers, Karan Sharma, Krishnappa Gautam, Ayush Badoni, Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya and Jason Holder.
