Lucknow Super Giants are going as one of best side in Tata IPL 2022 and currently they are at No. 2 in points table with 7 wins and 3 losses in 10 games. Kolkata Knight Riders are looking very average side and they are at No. 8 in points table with 4 wins in 10 matches.
For Lucknow Super Giants, each department has looked really well and skipper KL Rahul has led by front. Rahul has scored 451 runs in 10 innings and with 2 hundreds and 2 fifties. Deepak Hooda is looking in great toch at No.3 Batting position and very long batting lineup hasn’t given mcuh chance to all batsmans.
Their lower middle-order batting is yet to test in tournament. Variety of all-rounders and bowling options give KL Rahul a chance to go with any batsman and any bowler at any stage. Opponents are finding really difficult to tackle lot of bowlers.

Avesh Khan, Moshin Khan, Jason Holder and Dushmantha Chammera etc. have done really good job with bowl and they have never allowed batsmans to go after them.
Kolkata Knight Riders after loosing 5 successive games, finally got a win in previous match against Rajasthan Royals. Shreyas Iyer and Nitish Rana are looking alone warriors in batting lineup. In last match, Rinku Singh also played brilliant cameo to finish the match for KKR with a win.
It will be interesting to see with which openers KKR will go in match as every opening pair they have tried is failed. KKR needs to continue performance like previous match if they want to do well in rest of the tournament.
