IPL 2022 – Lucknow Super Giants vs Kolkata Knight Riders Match 53 Dream11 Predictions, Lineups and more

On Saturday, the 53rd match of the IPL 2022 will be played between the Lucknow Super Giants and the Kolkata Knight Riders. LSG has won 7 of their last 10 matches and will be seeking to win this match in order to finish in the top two. They trounced the Delhi Capitals by 6 runs in their last encounter, amassing 195 runs for the cost of three wickets in 20 overs. LSG would like to see the bowlers perform better, as only two bowlers had an economy of less than ten in the last game.

The Kolkata Knight Riders have won four of their last ten games, and a victory will take them up one spot in the points table. In the previous encounter, KKR defeated Rajasthan Royals by 7 wickets after chasing a 153-run target in 19.1 overs. KKR are still figuring out their best starting partnerships and may make some adjustments to their top-order after both openers failed to deliver a good start in the previous game.

The match is scheduled to take place on the 7th of May, 2022 at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune.

Lucknow Super Giants vs Kolkata Knight Riders Match 53 – Players to Watch

Shreyas Iyer

Shreyas Iyer has not yet been dismissed from the competition for a single-digit score. Only once in the last six matches has he been ejected for a score of less than 20 and four times has he made a score of 30 or higher. With 324 runs in 10 matches at an average of 36 and a strike rate of 133.33, he is the KKR’s highest run-scorer. His captaincy has improved over time and while he has made some mistakes, he is still firmly in the running to grab a spot in the playoffs but he will have to marshall his team and get them performing across all the departments.

Andre Russell

In the last game, Andre Russell did not receive a chance with either the bat or the ball. Russell is a crucial part of the KKR lineup, and he has the potential to display his class in this game. He has 227 runs in 10 games at an average of 37.83, and he has also taken 10 wickets. The match is never over for the Kolkata Knight Riders until Russell is on the pitch, and we expect him to put in a powerful performance against the Lucknow Super Giants.

KL Rahul

Lokesh Rahul has two century and two half-centuries in ten games this season. He is ranked second on the list of leading run-scorers. Rahul scored 77 runs off 51 deliveries in the previous game against the Delhi Capitals, contributing to the team’s total of 195 runs. He is really coming into his own in terms of the captaincy and we expect him to marshall his forces and give the KKR side, a run for their money.

Krunal Pandya

Krunal Pandya has taken 5 wickets in the last three games while bowling at a reasonable economy rate. In this game, he is expected to play an important role with both the bat and the ball.
