Days after an iconic victory at the Wankhede Stadium, KKR are now back on the road as they face LSG next. The beautiful Ekana Stadium in Lucknow will be treated to a clash of two strong and confident sides in one important game. Both LSG and KKR have had a tremendous season and sit comfortably in the top 4 on the points table. However, the heat of qualification to the playoffs is on and both sides would want to win this game. For KKR it will be about cementing their place in the top 2 while LSG would look to bag the victory and strengthen their chance of qualification. Two versatile squads, one important clash - would be interesting to see who comes out on top this evening.


KKR have been on the backfoot in head-to-head competition against LSG with LSG leading 3-1. However in the last game they played, KKR dominated the proceedings and clinched the all-important victory. With the winning momentum on their side KKR, will be confident of clinching another victory against LSG and bettering their record.


Phil Salt

Phil Salt has become an integral part of the KKR batting unit in quick time and his starts at the top have become of large significance. Salt smashed 89 the last time these two sides clashed and he would be looking for a similar performance this evening as well. His opening partnership alongside Sunil Narine will be of the utmost importance for KKR to get the advantage in the game.

Andre Russell

Andre Russell has already contributed in heroic fashion all through the season for KKR. Not just with the bat but also with the ball. Whenever the situation has been tough, he’s stood up to the occasion and delivered in style for the team. Dre-Russ surely is the MVP of this side and KKR will be hoping for another impressive performance from the big man to take them to victory in this upcoming encounter.

Varun Chakaravarthy

Varun Chakaravarthy keeps impressing one and all with his skills with the ball. All throughout the season, he has bowled under pressure and delivered great results for the side. Varun has earned the captain’s confidence and has done well under pressure situations and he will be aiming to do the same in this upcoming game against LSG.



A Caribbean Flavoured Battle - Sunil Narine vs Nicholas Pooran

In almost every other game, Sunil Narine finds himself up against a six-hitting middle order giant and delivers effectively every single time. This time he faces Nicholas Pooran who has been on a roll and is one of the most dangerous middle order players. The battle of these two heavyweights will be a mouth-watering one where Pooran would be looking to tee-off while Narine will be aiming to get Pooran’s wicket and put KKR on top.
