KKR vs LSG Dream11 Prediction: KKR will lock horns with LSG in match 66 of the IPL 2022 on May 18 at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai. The men in Purple are heading into this match on the back of two convincing wins over Mumbai Indians & SunRisers Hyderabad. They outclassed SRH in their previous match by massive 54 runs to keep their playoff hopes alive. Placed at the sixth position on the Points Table with 12 Points, KKR would aim to win these crucial two points & become a strong contender to qualify for the Playoffs.
While LSG are coming into this clash on the back of a humiliating 24-run loss against Rajasthan Royals. Though LSG are on the verge of qualifying for the Playoffs with 16 Points in their kitty, they would like to get that qualified tag against their name by registering a win in today’s clash. It will be a fierce battle with both the teams dying to win the clash.
KKR vs LSG Dream11 Prediction: Kolkata Knight Riders
KKR have done well in their last two matches & would be brimming with confidence heading into this clash. However, the absence of their two key players, Ajinkya Rahane & pat Cummins would only add to their worries. Meanwhile, Venkatesh Iyer’s diminishing form at the top order would again be a problem for KKR heading into the crucial stage of the Tournament. Their middle order too looks fragile with Shreyas Iyer failing to hit the straps so far. Heading into the ending phase of the tournament, KKR needs to address these issues if they aim to qualify for the Playoffs.
The gleaming form of Andre Russell with both bat & the ball helped is a major positive for the Mne in Purple. In their previous clash against Andre Russell, he registered a meaningful 65-run stand to guide KKR to a competitive 177 runs total & later scalped three crucial wickets for just 22 runs resulting in KKR’s downfall. He would hope to continue his good form in today’s clash against LSG.
Nitish Rana, Sam Billings emerging good is a bonus for KKR while in the bowling department, Tim Southee would continue to be their biggest bets in the absence of Pat Cummins. KKR would head into this clash against LSG with their same winning XI combination.
KKR vs LSG Dream11 Prediction: Lucknow Super Giants
After suffering two losses on a trot, LSG would be under pressure to return back to winning ways being just two points away from Playoff qualification. They would aim to win today’s clash to officially qualify for the Playoffs. LSG’s top-order failed to deliver in both the matches they have lost. This will be the first thing they would aim to get right before locking horns with the fiery KKR squad. KL Rahul’s poor form in the last few fixtures is also a concern for them, the skipper shoudl figure out ways to get back to scoring terms.
Another major drawback in LSG’s lineup is the batting poistion of Marcus Stoinis. In their previous clash against Rajasthan, Marcus was sent in the end which cost them the match as with 68 runs needed off 12 balls Stoinis couldn’t guide LSG over the line. While Ayush Badoni’s consistent failures with the bat are not helping LSG either. The management should send Marcus in Badoni’s place in today’s clash against KKR.
Being on the verge of qualification, LSG would put their every strength to win today’s match & get ‘Qualified’ against their name. On the other hand, ferocious KKR would aim to continue their winning spree to become the strong contenders for qualifying for the Playoffs.
