KKR and LSG will have their face-off today at DY Patil Stadium and it will be the last match of this season that will be played on this ground. The pitch might remain dry as was the case with the previous match. Spinners can get an edge while the match goes on.
Lucknow Super Giants is just one foot away from the playoff. The team led by KL Rahul will try to win and seal the position in the first half of the IPL point table. Lucknow is placed in 3 rd place with 16 points. The team lost two of its match which was played against the Rajasthan Royals and Gujarat Titans. The team can be seen under pressure as it goes forward. Batters of Lucknow in their last outings struggled hard in their powerplay and the two pillars of the team are KL Rahul and Quinton de Knock to get up their lost form.
For the Knights, there is pressure coming up because they too want to win the match. However, if they win against Lucknow, they can only make it to the playoff only if RCB and DC lose their games under Gujarat Titans and Mumbai India. Their dream of a playoff is still a dream with many ifs and buts. The team has many players who are expected to perform well such as Andre Russell. Rahane won’t be part of the game due to his injury. KKR need to work with their order of the players, furthermore, Shreyas Iyer and Nitish Rana are the pillars of this team.
Deepak Hooda – Hooda is the second-highest run-scorer on his team and has made 406 runs in the last 13 matches. He has also made 4 half-centuries. In their last match against RR, he became the highest scorer of the team by 59 runs.
Nitish Rana – In his last 5 matches, he has made three 40 plus scores and achieved 319 runs in the season. He has also made half-centuries in the match.
