Kolkata Knight Riders vs Lucknow Super Giants Pre Match Report:
In the 66th Match of IPL 2022, Kolkata Knight Riders and Lucknow Super Giants will take on each other at Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai
Kolkata Knight Riders made as many as five changes in their penultimate game against Mumbai Indians, bringing back Ajinkya Rahane, Venkatesh Iyer, Varun Chakravarthy, Sheldon Jackson, and Pat Cummins.
Umesh Yadav is the 2nd leading wicket-taker for Kolkata with 16 wickets from 11 outings and almost guarantees a wicket or two in the powerplay which sets the tone for the rest of the match. He will have added responsibility as Kolkata Knight Riders bowling all-rounder Pat Cummins has been ruled out of the IPL 2022 after suffering a minor hip injury.
Lucknow Supergiants had earlier beaten Kolkata Knight Riders in their previous IPL 2022 match by 75 runs at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. A half-century from Quinton de Kock along with Avesh Khan’s three-wicket haul powered LSG to a comprehensive victory by 75 runs as they successfully defended their total of 176.
if Andre Russell is dismissed early and the likes of Shreyas Iyer, Venkatesh Iyer, and Nitish Rana fail to score big runs, Lucknow should win quite comfortably. Similarly, KKR’s spin attack can come into play and if the wickets of Quinton de Kock and KL Rahul can be picked up early, the match could turn around in Kolkata’s favor.
