KKR vs LSG IPL 2022, 66th Match Preview:
Kolkata Knight Riders will lock horns with Lucknow Super Giants in the 66th match of the Indian Premier League, 2022 at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai on Wednesday.
This is the last league encounter for both sides. KKR’s qualification chances are hanging by a thread. The Shreyas Iyer-led side need to win this game and also hope a few other results go their way (RCB and DC losing their last match) in order to reach the top four.
On the other hand, LSG have a win-loss record of 8-5 but they have suffered a mini-slump recently. They’ve lost two games in a row now and are in danger of losing out on a top-two spot. Their qualification isn’t guaranteed yet either and a big loss might dent their chances.
