Lucknow Super Giants and Kolkata Knight Riders will play the 53rd match of IPL 2022 on Saturday. LSG have won 7 out of 10 matches and would be looking to win this match so to get a top-two finish. They defeated Delhi Capitals in the last game by 6 runs after scoring 195 runs for the loss of 3 wickets in 20 overs. LSG would hope for a better performance from the bowlers as only 2 bowlers had an economy of less than 10 in the last game.
Kolkata Knight Riders have won 4 out of 10 matches and a win will help them move one place in the points table. KKR defeated Rajasthan Royals in the previous match by 7 wickets after chasing a target of 153 runs in 19.1 overs. KKR are still to figure out their best opening pairs and might make some changes in the top-order as both the openers failed to provide a decent start in the last game.
