Toss Winner - Lucknow Super Giants won the toss and choose to bowl first

Kolkata Knight Riders won by 98 runs

Will KKR make it two in two against LSG this season? Or will LSG pay back for the defeat they suffered at the hands of KKR at Eden Gardens?

  • With 316 runs and 4 wickets from 10 games to his name, Marcus Stoinis has made a definite impact in LSG climbing up to the third place.
  • Sunil Narine has proven himself as an allrounder. His attacking strokeplay has helped him collect close to 400 runs as an opener and his miserly bowling has given his team some crucial breakthroughs in the middle overs.
  • LSG are clearly ahead on the overall head to head 3-1, and will be hoping to extend their lead following their defeat to KKR at the Eden Gardens.

We are backing Kolkata Knight Riders as winners of this contest.

LSG vs KKR Live Prediction

2024-05-05 22:01:26

LSG to score over 98.5 runs in the first 10 overs @ 1.83 (1XBET)

LSG are off to a flying start and with both inform batsman in the form of Marcus Stoinis and KL Rahul out in the middle and the required run rate well over 12 runs per over, we back LSG to score over 98.5 runs in the first 10 overs.

2024-05-05 21:58:52

LSG to score over 60.5 runs in first 6 overs @ 1.83 (1XBET)

LSG are off to a quick start scoring at 10 runs per over in the first two overs of the powerplay. With the target being a huge one, LSG will look to make use of the powerplay overs and we back them to score over 60.5 runs in the first 6 overs.

2024-05-05 20:37:21

KKR to score over 229.5 runs in 20 overs @ 1.75 (1XBET)

Kolkata Knight Riders are in a pretty good position and are all set for a massive score. With Andre Russell out in the middle and few more big hitters to come, we back KKR to score over 229.5 runs in 20 overs.

Lucknow Super Giants are faced with the challenge of taking on a rampant Kolkata Knight Riders team at the Ekana stadium in Lucknow. With KKR accounting for their first duel this season, LSG will be hoping to pay back with interest by winning at home.

The win at Eden Gardens was the first for KKR against LSG in four meetings between the two teams. Now that they’ve opened their account, KKR will be looking to quickly catch up on the tally with another dominating or perhaps a winning performance against KL Rahul’s men.

Both KKR and LSG come into the match with three wins in five matches, and the two teams will be hoping to pick up two crucial points from this fixture to solidify their position at the top of the table.

With teams like Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings hot on their heels, both the teams will need to keep climbing upwards to be able to get a guaranteed place in the playoffs.

Lucknow Super Giants Preview

Lucknow Super Giants run so far in the tournament has been average at best, but they’ve done well to keep up with the table-toppers, particularly Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders. The Royals beat LSG fair and square in both encounters, and KKR got the better of them at Eden Gardens with a 8-wicket win. But KL Rahul’s men have been good otherwise.

They upstaged defending champs Chennai Super Kings both home and away, with the big Stoinis producing his first century of the IPL to wrap up a thrilling chase alongside Deepak Hooda over at Chepauk. Stoinis again stepped up to the plate on a tricky surface against an out-of-form Mumbai Indians side to get LSG over the line with a match-winning 62(45).

With Nicholas Pooran still searching for form, the Australian has shown great sense of maturity to finish games for his team and been instrumental in adding four points to LSG’s tally. When it comes to bowling, LSG have been inconsistent to say the least. Not one bowler has been able to bowl with consistency to trouble opposition batters. Tearaway quick Mayank Yadav looked ominous at his best but had to be rested owing to injury concerns.

His return to the fold against MI wasn’t great either, as he went back hobbling unable to complete his full quota of overs. Ravi Bishnoi and Krunal Pandya have been a tad disappointing this season, and their inability to keep things quiet through the middle has proven costly for LSG.

Kolkata Knight Riders Preview

Sunil Narine has proven his credentials as an allrounder with some impressive performances with both bat and ball in the 10 games so far this season. He has accumulated 380 runs at a blistering strike rate at the top of the order and picked up 11 wickets with his economical bowling through the middle overs. Phil Salt has made the opener’s role his very own, too, piling up nearly 400 runs off his 10 games.

KKR could use some assistance from their Indian batsmen though. Captaincy has weighed heavily on Shreyas Iyer, who, in contrast to his free-flowing style of batting, has struggled making 257 runs off 10 games. Venkatesh Iyer starred with the bat against MI, making a match-winning 70 to take them to a decent total.

Ankrish Raghuvanshi has done a decent job so far, but it’s still early days in this tournament for him. Andre Russell, the experienced campaigner, hasn’t been able to quite belt the opposition bowlers out of the attack, like he’s capable of.

On the bowling front, the most expensive player of all time Mitchell Starc hasn’t quite found his radar yet. Harshit Rana, his lesser known bowling partner with the new ball has chipped in with some handy scalps, but he’s leaked runs too. Mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy is perhaps not so mysterious anymore, with teams starting to target him with clear plans. As a result, his economy has taken a battering.


KKR Over/Under Betting Tips

Sunil Narine to score over 15.5 runs 1.85

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Phil Salt (wk), Sunil Narine, Angkrish Raghuvanshi, Shreyas Iyer (capt), Venkatesh Iyer, Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, 8 Ramandeep Singh, Mitchell Starc, Vaibhav Arora, Varun Chakaravarthy. Impact Sub: Manish Pandey.

Weather Conditions

When LSG met MI in the recent fixture at this venue, run-scoring was certainly not as easy as it was in the five games prior to that. Only one batsman from either side could make more than fifty runs on what was a slightly two-paced surface. If the surface plays similarly, spinners could come into play straightaway.

LSG vs KKR Pitch Report

The match will be played at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. Both teams will be facing each other at Lucknow for the first time ever.


Total Over/Under Betting Tips

Total aggregate runs over 349.5 1.976

Bet now

Lucknow is the only venue in this IPL season other than Jaipur where the pitches have been balanced and the total aggregate scores have been on the lower side compared to other venues. The average total aggregate score at Lucknow this season is 341 runs. Out of the six matches played, three times the scores have been over the 350 run mark and with KKR playing you can always expect the scores to be high. We predict the total combined score to be over 349.5 runs in today's match.

Toss: To Bowl

If the results of the recent 4 games is anything to go by, chasing is in vogue here. Teams have found no trouble tracking down targets like 145, 199, 177 and 168 with more than a handful of balls to spare. Our guess is that the team winning the toss would not hesitate to bat second.

We’re putting our money on Kolkata Knight Riders mainly because they’ve been extremely consistent in taking advantage of field restrictions during powerplay. Besides, their spinners have come away with more wickets and bowled with discipline through the middle phase.

We are backing Kolkata Knight Riders as winners of this contest.
