KKR vs LSG Team Previews

Kolkata Knight Riders

The Knight Riders will go into this fixture in second position on the 10-team points table. They started their campaign with three successive wins before falling to defeat against the Chennai Super Kings. Almost a week has gone by since that defeat, so Kolkata have had plenty of time to prepare to bounce back.

Sunil Narine, Andre Russell and Phil Salt have been KKR's leading run-scorers this IPL season. Narine has again been somewhat of a revelation at the top of the order, pinch-hitting his way to 161 runs in four innings at a strike rate of almost 190. This world-class all-rounder has also taken four wickets in the 2024 IPL.

Russell is also a huge asset with bat and ball for Kolkata. He is the team's second-highest run-scorer and joint-highest wicket-taker this season. Russell and local talents Harshit Rana and Vaibhav Arora each have five wickets in this year's tournament. All three are worth backing to do well again.

Lucknow Super Giants

Lucknow have three consecutive wins flanked by a defeat on either side this season. Their most recent result was a loss against the Delhi Capitals. They have a quick turnaround time between that loss and this fixture against a highly motivated Kolkata unit.

Nicholas Pooran, KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock have been outstanding for the bat for the Super Giants this season. Each have 160-plus runs and have provided plenty of impetus through the opening powerplay, middle and death overs. Rahul's captain looks to be improving with every match, too.

Yash Thakur and Mayank Yadav have impressed through this season's IPL, sharing 13 wickets. They are among the country's brightest seam-bowling prospects. Yadav is effectively and outright pace ace, but has been sidelined by injury. It is anticipated he will return for this match.
