KKR, on the other hand, are still in with a chance to progress despite being sixth in the points table. They will want Mumbai to beat Delhi in a later fixture… To beat LSG, Kolkata Knight Riders’s chances stand at 2.14
How the season has gone…
Kolkata Knight Riders started off the season on a great note, but soon lost steam as the pitches started slowing down. The KKR outfit have won six and lost seven matches this season. Lucknow, on the other hand, have won eight and lost five and are third in the points table.
Lucknow Super Giants have a well-rounded unit and are favourites to win this clash.Recommended Bet by 10CRIC
A big factor in this game would be how the Lucknow top order fares against KKR’s new ball bowlers and how the LSG middle-order could be tested by the spin force. Will it affect LSG’s chances?
Keep an eye on…
Avesh Khan: Since returning to the side after missing a match, Avesh Khan has delivered telling blows with big scalps each game. The last of his big victims is Jos Buttler, whom he cleaned up for the second time in the season.
Umesh Yadav: In the back end of the season, Umesh Yadav is becoming a threatening option again with his wicket-taking abilities by bowling fuller lengths. The KKR quick will be handed with the responsibility to dismiss KL Rahul.
TIP: Avesh Khan has found good recent form. Back Avesh Khan at 3.54 to be the top bowler for LSG!
