Kolkata Knight Riders vs Lucknow Super Giants Prediction Preview:

Welcome to the KKR vs LSG Today Prediction curated by Kheltalk cricket experts. Kolkata Knight Riders will be crossing swords with Lucknow Super Giants in this IPL 2023 game.

Kolkata Knight Riders have to wish for a miracle if they are to qualify for the playoffs in IPL 2023. They need to beat LSG by 104 runs or 70 balls to spare to jump above Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in terms of their Net Run Rate (NRR).

They need to then hope that RCB and Mumbai Indians (MI) don’t win their remaining games. Keeping all this aside, KKR should focus on a win and hope for the best.

Lucknow Super Giants need a win to seal their place in the playoffs. They are coming on the back of a 5-run win against Mumbai Indians (MI) in their previous game.
