On May 20, 2023, Lucknow Super Giants will play Kolkata Knight Riders in the 68th game of the Indian Premier League 2023 at the storied Eden Garden Stadium.
The sides’ last meeting took place on May 18, 2022, in Navi Mumbai, with Lucknow Super Giants winning by 2 runs. Quinton de Kock (140*) and KL Rahul (68*) set up a scorching 210-run unbroken partnership to enable the Lucknow Super Giants to score 210/0 in 20 overs when they batted first.
With KKR missing the target by the narrowest of margins of 2 runs, Shreyas Iyer (50) and Nitish Rana (42) responded with a valiant effort that went short of crossing the victory line. Check complete details on KKR vs LSG head-to-head records.
Kolkata Knight Riders
The Kolkata Knight Riders will be coming off of an impressive road victory over CSK in their most recent match in Chennai. Due to their negative NRR, KKR, who have 12 points after 13 games, are ranked seventh in the rankings.
They face a significant uphill battle, and even a victory won’t guarantee playoff advancement. Even if they win the final game, KKR would still be eliminated by a single MI/RCB victory because they can only accumulate a maximum of 14 points.
Lucknow Super Giants
Marcus Stoinis’ performance against the Mumbai Indians in the previous game would serve as the Lucknow Super Giants’ motivation going into the match. They are ranked third in the points table with 15 points after 13 games, and the last league match will decide their destiny.
LSG must now win in order to lock up their playoff berth, though they may still qualify even if they lose if either RCB or MI fail to win their last league match.
