Kolkata Knight Riders vs Lucknow Super Giants, Round 68, IPL 2023: Head to head and other key stats

Kolkata Knight Riders will face Punjab Kings in Round 68 of Indian Premier League 2023 at Eden Gardens. Nitish Rana led the team forward and made winning contributions at crucial times. Spinners were brilliant for KKR, tos from Narine, Varuna and Suyash did extremely well. KKR management constantly changed their openers which was a major problem. Venkatesh Iyer blew hot and cold throughout the season, he marked a century and followed some failures. Jason Roy and Rahmanullah Gurbaz did well in the patches and they could well continue with the same pair topping the order in this game as well. Rinku Singh appeared to be in good contact and will be looking to continue with form. This is a must match for KKR to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Lucknow Super Giants started the season brilliantly but lost their way midway through the tournament. Unfortunately, their skipper KL Rahul was injured and will miss the rest of the season. Krunal Pandya will lead the team in Rahul’s absence. Ravi Bishnoi was in great form and the rest of the bowlers also contributed. Avesh Khan has done well for LSG in patches, Marcus Stoinis and Nicolas Pooran have been at their destructive best so far this season and are the main reason behind the team’s success. Together, these two have led LSG to some unlikely wins and peaked at the right time. They come into this game after a great win and will be looking to book their place in the playoffs after this tantalizing game at Eden Gardens.

The field at Eden Gardens in Kolkata is traditionally well balanced, offering something for both hitters and bowlers. The ball can also do a bit for fast bowlers in the early stages of the game, but will become easier to hit as the game progresses. Hitters need to make up their minds before throwing aggressive shots, they can take advantage of this site’s short boundaries. The captain winning the toss would be inclined to play first on this site and chase the score into the second innings with expected dew.
