  • Shreyas Iyer has hit over 5300 T20 runs across his career and the right-hander is our pick for KKR’s highest run scorer against Lucknow Super Giants. Andre Russell has taken five wickets in the tournament so far and the pace bowler is a strong choice for KKR’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • KL Rahul struck another five fours and one six at the top of the Lucknow Super Giants’ order in the last game and the skipper is our tip for their highest run scorer in this clash. Ravi Bishnoi took 2/25 against Delhi Capitals and the spinner is well worth backing as Lucknow Super Giants’ top wicket taker in this fixture.
  • With scores of 33 and 39 from his last two innings, we recommend selecting KL Rahul to hit over 31.5 runs in this game.

Weather & Pitch Report


It is going to be a very hot afternoon and early evening in Kolkata with the temperature dropping no lower than 32 degrees. No rain is forecast although there will be some cloud cover.

Pitch Report:

The pitch at Eden Gardens is like to provide some some movement for the bowlers particularly during the first few overs when the ball is hard and new. After that, it will be a good batting surface with a par score around 200.

As expected, Mayank Yadav missed out on Friday after experiencing soreness in his lower abdominal area and the news from coach Justin Langer ahead of the match with Delhi Capitals was that the pace bowler would be out for a couple of matches.

Winning Chances: 

Ahead of the weekend, these sides were in second and fourth place in the table with many pundits already predicting they will make it into the end of season play-offs. Both teams come into this match after suffering a defeat following three wins in a row so it will be interesting to see how they react to those defeats. We are predicting a close contest with KKR’s superior experience with the ball getting them a win.

Kolkata Knight Riders to beat Lucknow Super Giants.

Kolkata Knight Riders a 100% chance to win this match 

Lucknow Super Giants a 0% chance to win this match 

Key Players: 

Kolkata Knight Riders 

Shreyas Iyer 

the captain top scored for KKR in the last game but he will want to increase his strike-rate from only 106.25 in that match.

Sunil Narine 

the all-rounder is averaging over 40 so far in IPL 2024 and is likely to continue to play unconventional but effective shots at the top of the order.

Andre Russell 

after going wicketless at Chepauk in the last match, the West Indian all-rounder will be keen to utilise the pace on offer at Eden Gardens in this game.

Vaibhav Arora 

the 26 year old right-arm fast medium bowler impressed with figures of 2/28 against CSK and dismissed Rachin Ravindra before also getting the wicket of Shivam Dubey.

KKR Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Anukul Roy, Suyash Sharma, Manish Pandey, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Sakib Hussain 

Anukul Roy came into the side in place of Rinku Singh to bolster the batting against CSK. Young bowler Sakib Hussain is a likely substitute to come in during the fielding innings.

Lucknow Super Giants 

KL Rahul 

the right-hander is a fine batter but there are often question marks over his strike-rate in T20 cricket. However, he comes into this game after hitting at 177.27 against Delhi Capitals.

Ayush Badoni 

the 24 year old right-hander was exceptional for Lucknow in their last match and kept them in the match with 55 not out from 35 balls.

Ravi Bishnoi 

the spinner had a slow start personally to the tournament but looks back to his confident self and has dismissed top players in his last two games.

Yash Thakur 

the pace bowler got the crucial wicket of David Warner against Delhi Capitals and has taken seven wickets from his last three matches.

LSG Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Deepak Hooda, Manimaran Siddharth, Amit Mishra, Matt Henry, Krishnappa Gowtha 

The Super Giants used their substitute early on in Friday’s game with Deepak Hooda providing an extra batting option and replacing the dismissed Quinton de Kock. Matt Henry is a likely candidate to come in and boost the bowling in this match.

Team Forms: 

KKR Team Form: 

Kolkata Knight Riders had won three matches in a row before their 7 wicket defeat against CSK.

LSG Team Form: 

After seeing their winning streak come to an end after three games, Lucknow will be determined to start another in this match.
