Preview of KKR vs LSG match: The 15th season of the Indian Premier League is in turmoil. Kolkata Knight Riders and Lucknow Super Giants will meet tomorrow in IPL 2022. KKR needs a big win to keep their playoff hopes alive. With their vague hopes of reaching the IPL playoffs needing a big win in their last series match, the Lucknow Super Giants will be looking to top the table by winning the match on Wednesday.
KKR are sixth in the table with 12 points from six matches with six wins and even if the team wins the match by a big margin they will have to rely on the results of other matches to qualify for the playoffs. The Lucknow team is one step away from making it to the play-offs. The team has 16 points from 13 matches and a win in this match will determine their ticket to the playoffs.
Andre Russell’s all-round performance and strong bowling performance helped Shreyas Iyer’s side beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 54 runs in the last match. Russell and Sam Billings led the team to 177 for six after their lead collapsed in the match and then the bowlers did their job well.
Ajinkya Rahane struggled throughout the season in the top spot. However, he was ruled out of the current season due to a hand injury. Last season’s hero Venkatesh Iyer disappointed this season. Nitish Rana and Shreyas Iyer have failed to perform consistently.
