IPL 2022 – LSG ( Lucknow Super Giants ) vs KKR ( Kolkata Knight Riders ) cricket match was scheduled today in which LSG won by 75 runs.
The Kolkata Knight Riders won the toss and opted to bowl first.
KL Rahul: We haven’t played too many games here. From whatever we have seen on the TV, it has been sticky and hasn’t been a high scoring venue. But it gives us a good opportunity as a batting unit to come out and put up a competitive total on the board. We have to assess the conditions and put a challenging total on the board. We have one change – Avesh comes in for Gowtham. That’s what gives us confidence and that’s what we want to be as a team, performing as a team and not relying on one or two players. We have had a couple of days’ break, the body is fresh and looking forward to going out there and giving our 100 percent.
Shreyas Iyer: We will look to bowl first. Considering the wicket which looks dry and dew is not going to play a massive role on this ground. We also chased pretty well in the last game. We have got one change, unfortunately, Umesh pulled his calf muscle and Harshit Rana comes in.
