KKR vs LSG IPL 2022 Kolkata Knight Riders vs Lucknow Super Giants 66th Match Probable Playing XIs


Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) need a big win in their last league match on Wednesday to keep their hopes of reaching the IPL 2022 playoffs alive, while Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) won the match in the table. I will try to make it to the top. KKR are placed sixth in the table with 12 points from six wins from 13 matches and will have to rely on the results of other matches to qualify for the playoffs even if they manage to win the match by a huge margin.

The Lucknow team is one step away from securing a place in the play-offs. The team has 16 points from 13 matches and a win in this match will ensure its playoff ticket. The match between the two teams will be played at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai.

Two-time champions KKR had reached the finals last year but could not maintain the momentum this season. The team, however, kept its hopes alive by registering wins against Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last two matches. The Shreyas Iyer-led side beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 54 runs in the last match thanks to Andre Russell’s all-rounder game and strong performances from the bowlers. Russell and Sam Billings took the team to 177 for six after the top order faltered in this match and then the bowlers did their job brilliantly.
