Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Lucknow Super Giants : IPL 2024



Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Lucknow Super Giants
Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Lucknow Super Giants: Can KKR secure their fourth victory of the season by overcoming their dismal 0-3 head-to-head record against LSG? Will LSG be able to recover swiftly from the crushing defeat at the hands of Delhi Capitals?
  • Both Andre Russell (115 runs from 4 games at SR 212) and Sunil Narine (161 runs from 4 games at SR 189) have been in excellent hitting form this season.
  • LSG’s ability to get a high enough score to deter KKR hitters is largely dependent on how Nicholas Pooran spends his innings. He erupts when the death overs arrive, but he doesn’t make a significant impact when he has to enter the game sooner than anticipated.
  • The bowling attack of KKR appears to be more varied and effective than that of LSG, particularly considering that Mayank Yadav, the X factor, will miss a few games due to injury.

Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Lucknow Super Giants


The Kolkata Knight Riders have won three of the first four games of the season, which is an amazing start.

They barely defeated SRH in the first match at Eden Gardens, and they followed it up with victories away from home against RCB and DC in their following two meetings. But when they fell to CSK in Chennai, their winning run came to an end.

The Lucknow Super Giants’ path in this year’s competition hasn’t changed all that much thus far. They were defeated by the Royals in their first game in Jaipur, but they immediately recovered to win three straight games against PBKS, RCB, and GT to move up to third position in the points standings, just below Kolkata. The similarities stop there, though.

LSG has a perfect head-to-head record against KKR, having prevailed in each of the previous three meetings. While LSG will be concentrating on maintaining their supremacy, KKR will be looking to go one up on them and establish themselves against the new team.

Teams Preview –

Kolkata Knight Riders :

In two of their games, the Kolkata Knight Riders showed why they were unstoppable: against the Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bengaluru.

They prevailed narrowly in their first meeting at home by maintaining their composure in the face of a charging SRH. Their in-form batsmen, V Iyer, Andre Russell, and Sunil Narine, have enjoyed playing on pitches where the ball has come on to the bat, which has made scoring runs easier. However, they were somewhat exposed on a slow pitch at the MA Chidambaram Stadium against a strong bowling attack, as the KKR batters were restricted to a below-average score by the CSK’s spinners Jadeja, Theekshana, and fast bowler Deshpande.

With help available, KKR’s spin unit was unable to take use of it and lost wickets, allowing CSK to win with 7 wickets and 14 balls remaining. KKR will be eager to play in front of home supporters as they return to the field for the first of five home games against LSG.

However, they still have a few problems to resolve, like Mitchell Starc’s patchy performance with the ball (2 wickets in 4 games) and Rinku Singh’s lacklustre record at the bat as he moves down the order.

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Philip Salt (wk), Sunil Narine, Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer (c), Angkrish Raghuvanshi, Andre Russell, Rinku Singh, Ramandeep Singh , Mitchell Starc, Vaibhav Arora, Varun Chakaravarthy. Impact Player: Anukul Roy.

Lucknow Super Giants :

The Lucknow Super Giants have done incredibly well to return to the competition with three straight victories after having a dismal start to their campaign in Jaipur. They lost some of the momentum they were building up at home to the Delhi Capitals.

However, they will find solace in the knowledge that they will be playing a team that they have never lost a game against, all season long. Marcus Stoinis and Devdutt Padikkal are not playing at their best, and the middle order of the team appears to be a little weak.

After losing 7 wickets for 94 runs against DC in the thirteenth over, Ayush Badoni performed a useful knock (55 off 35) to offer LSG bowlers something to bowl at. However, it looks like the batting depends a lot on important players like KL Rahul and Nicholas Pooran.

With Mayank Yadav not playing, the bowling appears to be a little lacking. No one has been able to come up and make as much of an impression as the tearaway quick, who troubled the batters of the Punjab Kings and Royal Challengers Bengaluru with his fast-bowling.

Lucknow Super Giants Predicted Playing XI:

Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul (c & wk), Devdutt Padikkal, Marcus Stoinis, Nicholas Pooran, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Ravi Bishnoi, Naveen-ul-Haq, Yash Thakur, Arshad Khan. Impact Player: M Siddarth.

Pitch & Weather Conditions:

Weather :

Generally speaking, the Eden Gardens pitch is favourable for batting. However, for speed bowlers who are prepared to bend their backs, the surface offers more zip and nippiness. during the most part, the weather during the meeting is predicted to be clear, with somewhat warmer temperatures.

Pitch Report:

The game will take place in Kolkata’s Eden Gardens. The previous time these two teams played at this location, it ended in a cliffhanger as LSG defeated the hosts by one run while displaying steely nerves.

Toss: To Bat

If they win the toss here, LSG will be pleased to bat first since they have won three of their games doing so. However, by urging the visitors to chase, KKR would be aiming to confuse LSG.
