Lucknow Super Giants vs Kolkata Knight Riders top picks

LSG: Captain KL Rahul has covered the hard yards for Lucknow Super Giants by scoring 451 runs in 10 matches at an average of over 50. KL Rahul, however, hasn’t found consistent support from other seniors including Quinton de Kock. Mohsin Khan (eight wickets from four matches) is their best bowler based on his current form while Avesh Khan is their top wicket-taker (11 wickets from eight matches).

KKR: The struggling Kolkata Knight Riders have been over-dependent on all-rounder Andre Russell (227 runs and 10 wickets in 10 matches). Umesh Yadav with the ball (15 wickets in 10 matches) and Shreyas Iyer with the bat (324 runs from 10 matches) have been contributing to the side but close losses haven’t helped their cause.

Lucknow Super Giants vs Kolkata Knight Riders IPL 2022 prediction

Lucknow Super Giants are the favourites to win the match due to their better form. However, a do-or-die contest can bring the best out of Shreyas Iyer-led Kolkata Knight Riders.
