The upcoming fixture in the seventeenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2024) will witness Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) locking horns with Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata, on Sunday, April 14.

After winning their first three games of the season, the Shreyas Iyer-led side registered their first loss of the season in their last game against the defending champions, Chennai Super Kings. With a well-balanced squad, KKR is well-equipped to take on LSG, especially in their home conditions.

On the other hand, LSG is currently fourth on the points table. In five games played so far the KL Rahul-led side has managed to win three games. In their last game against Delhi Capitals, they experienced a batting collapse and lost the game by six wickets. With the upcoming match, the visitors will be looking to challenge KKR at their home ground.

Pitch Report:

The Eden Gardens pitch is known for its balanced nature, providing support for both the batters and bowlers alike. Early in the match, the pitch is expected to offer seam movement and swing, giving the fast bowlers an advantage. However, as the game progresses, the pitch is likely to become more batting-friendly, providing more opportunities for the batters to score runs. Spinners may also get some assistance from the surface, though this may be limited, especially since it is the first match of the season, when the pitch conditions may not fully favour spin bowling.

Probable Best Batter

With 178 runs in five matches, LSG’s vice-captain Nicholas Pooran could be the best batter of match 28 of IPL 2024. He has been in good form and is scoring consistently. His form in the upcoming clash is crucial for the visitors as he can take the game away add those crucial runs and play a match-defining knock. 

Probable Best Bowler

Sunil Narine‘s spin bowling can be crucial for KKR, as he can provide crucial breakthroughs during matches. Though he has been decent with the ball in the season and picked four wickets, with his experience and knack of picking wickets, Narine will be looking to provide his side with some early wickets and put them in a comfortable spot.
