Lucknow Super Giants vs Kolkata Knight Riders T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Lucknow Super Giants take on Kolkata Knight Riders in Match 54 of the 2024 Indian Premier League on Sunday evening. Lucknow have won six games this season and begin this fixture just two points behind KKR who occupy second place. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway at 19:30 local time at the BRSABV Ekana Stadium on May 5th.

After losing to Rajasthan Royals in Match 44, Lucknow Super Giants got back to winning ways against Mumbai Indians in their last match and they come into this game in strong form. However, they are up against one of the best sides in this IPL so far.

Kolkata Knight Riders won a rollercoaster of a contest in their last game which saw them deep in trouble on 57/5 before recovering to post 169 and then winning the match. They will need to be stronger with the bat in this match but their bowlers were brilliant in Friday’s victory.

LSG vs KKR Match Toss Prediction

This will be the 14th IPL match to be played at this venue and so far teams batting first have won six as have teams fielding first. With the temperature expected to drop by five degrees from the first innings to the second innings, we predict that both captains will want to bat first.

LSG vs KKR Pitch Report

The surface in Lucknow is often a little bit two-paced which means that high scores are the exception. The last game saw 289 runs in total and we expect a first innings par total to be no higher than 160-165.

Lucknow Weather Report

It will be very hot at the beginning of this game with the temperature likely to be up in the high thirties. And by the end of the match, the forecast is for the temperature to be no lower than 33.

LSG Team News & Playing 11

LSG Team News

After taking great care to not rush him back too early, Mayank Yadav was unable to complete his fourth over in the last match and it is believed that he has suffered an abdominal muscle tear which is expected to keep him out for the remainder of the IPL 2024 season.

LSG Key Players

  • KL Rahul- the opener hit three fours and a six in the last game and is clearly playing a more attacking role this year. He produces consistent scores year in year out.
  • Marcus Stoinis- the Australian all-rounder hit 62 runs from 45 balls against Mumbai Indians and he has now taken a wicket in all three of his last appearances in Lucknow.
  • Ravi Bishnoi- the spinner came into the attack and got the big wicket of Ishan Kishan in the last match. He bowls with good control and variation.
  • Yash Thakur- the 25 year old right-arm fast medium bowler should be well rested after missing the last game and he has been Lucknow’s most impressive bowler so far this season.

LSG Possible Impact Player Substitutes

M Siddharth, K Gowtham, Yudhvir Singh, Prerak Mankad, Mohsin Khan

Mayank Yadav was brought into the team for the fielding innings against Mumbai Indians but then picked up an injury. We expect Mohsin Khan to take on his role in this match.

LSG Team Form

Lucknow Super Giants come into this match in strong form after winning three of their last four games.

LSG Predicted Playing 11

KL Rahul (c) (wk), Arshin Kulkarni, Marcus Stoinis, Deepak Hooda, Nicholas Pooran, Ashton Turner, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Ravi Bishnoi, Naveen-ul-Haq, Yash Thakur

KKR Team News & Playing 11

KKR Team News

Shreyas Iyer was in a very positive mood on Friday post-game after seeing his side win without playing at their best. With a quick turnaround of only two days before this match on Sunday, we are not expecting to see wholesale changes to the XI.

KKR Key Players

  • Phil Salt- the English keeper-batter has had an excellent tournament so far and will be keen to produce something in this match after being dismissed fourth ball on Friday.
  • Venkatesh Iyer- the 29 year old left-hander took the Player of the Match Award in the last game after rescuing his side with 70 runs from 52 balls.
  • Mitchell Starc- the left-arm pace bowler showed how dangerous a bowler he can be against Mumbai Indians when he dismissed Ishan Kishan in his first over before finishing the game with three wickets in the 19th over.
  • Varun Chakravarthy- the off-spinner took the second and fourth wickets on Friday. He produced an impressive display to finish with 2/22 from his four overs.

KKR Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Anukul Roy, Manish Pandey, Srikar Bharat, Sherfane Rutherfod, Chetan Sakariya

Manish Pandey was thrust into the action after only 6.1 overs as the Impact Player in the last game and delivered with the bat. If a pace bowling option is required in this game than someone like Chetan Sakariya would be a strong candidate.

KKR Team Form

Kolkata Knight Riders have won their last two games and three of their last four in this IPL.

KKR Predicted Playing 11

Phil Salt (wk), Sunil Narine, Angkrish Raghuvanshi, Shreyas Iyer (c), Venkatesh Iyer, Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Ramandeep Singh, Mitchell Starc, Vaibhav Arora, Varun Chakravarthy

Who will win Lucknow Super Giants vs Kolkata Knight Riders T20 Match?

Both sides are in strong form and in truth, player for player, there is very little to choose between the sides. However, with greater bowling control, we are backing KKR to be the top team.

🏆 LSG vs KKR Prediction

With both teams winning three of their last four, we can expect to see two teams full of confidence take the field in this match. They could well meet again in the play-offs later in the tournament so there are opportunities to put down a marker on Sunday evening. Our prediction is for a very competitive match but we are backing Kolkata Knight Riders, who have played to a slightly higher standard so far, to win this game.
