Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Lucknow Super Giants in match 28 of Indian Premier League 2024 at Eden Gardens, in Kolkata on Sunday, April 14. KKR will be playing their second match at home, while this will be the third match on the road for Lucknow.

In the ongoing tournament, the hosts have begun well. KKR won the first three matches but lost the next match they played. A superb start to their campaign saw them get off track after a loss in their latest completed game. As a result, the Shreyas Iyer & Co. would like to come back to their winning momentum.

On the other hand, LSG have won three and lost two of the five they've played so far in the ongoing tournament. Thus, the KL Rahul-led side would like to come back to their winning momentum.

Currently, Kolkata are placed in the second spot in the points table while Lucknow are placed fourth. Hence, keeping the cut-throat situation in mind, they would want to get another two points to improve their dire situation in the ongoing IPL 2024.

These two teams' last meeting was in match 68 of IPL 2023 at this venue, where the visitors posted 171/5 courtesy of fifties from Nicholas Pooran and defended this target in a high thriller match by just 1 run. But Rinku Singh's magnificent fifty kept Knight Riders in the game till the final ball. 

Eden Gardens Pitch Report

In general, Eden Gardens tends to assist spinners more than pacers, and hence does not always generate very high scores and more often than not presents a two-paced nature. But like all IPL stadiums, dew will impact performances in the second innings. Eden Gardens has only hosted one fixture in the ongoing season, and it turned out to be a run fest, with both KKR and Sunrisers Hyderabad scoring over 200. The wicket for the game on Sunday is also expected to be a similar batting paradise, and the bowlers will have to toil hard for success.

X-Factors for KKR vs LSG

Kolkata Knight Riders:

Andre Russell

After showing sublime form in the ongoing tournament with both bat and ball, Andre Russell will be riding high on both confidence and form coming into this game. The star all-rounder's striking ability in this tournament, especially at the death, is something the Lucknow Super Giants would be wary of.

Lucknow Super Giants:

Nicholas Pooran

Nicholas Pooran has been a vital cog in the LSG camp, and poses threat to the position with his mere presence. His ability to hit huge sixes will be planned differently by the hosts. In order to get rid of him early, Shreyas might introduce spin as soon as the southpaw comes to the crease.
