Kolkata Knight Riders vs Lucknow Super Giants top picks

KKR: Andre Russell with an unbeaten knock of 49 and three wickets in the last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad led KKR to a much-needed win. The Kolkata side will once again look up to their star all-rounder for contributions. Russell has taken 17 wickets and scored 330 runs in the 13 matches this season. Umesh Yadav with his pace and Sunil Narine with his mystery spin will look to keep a strong Lucknow batting line-up in check.

LSG: Lucknow Super Giants boast a strong batting on top with KL Rahul (439 runs from 13 matches), Quinton de Kock (362 runs from 13 matches) as openers, and Deepak Hooda (406 runs from 13 matches) batting at No. 4. Marcus Stoinis and Jason Holder provide ammunition in the late middle-order while Avesh Khan (17 wickets from 11 matches) is the pick of their bowlers.

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Lucknow Super Giants prediction

Odds are heavily stacked in the favour of Lucknow Super Giants who have been consistent this season. However, Kolkata Knight Riders can never be counted out, especially after they reached the final last year from a similar position.
