Kolkata Knight Riders News & Playing XI

KKR needs a strong win here after defeating the Chennai Super Kings in the previous match to qualify for the playoffs.

KKR's top order is inconsistent. Gurbaaz, Jason Roy, and Venkatesh Iyer haven't performed that well in past matches. Nitish Rana and Rinku Singh have done well in the middle order. Russell has been out of form, and they need a good show from the Big Man.

Harshit Rana and Vaibhav Arora are the two pace options, as Umesh Yadav is not fit due to injury. Sunil Narine, Suyash Sharma, and Varun Chakravarthy, the trio of spinners, have worked out very well for KKR.

Playing XI: Nitish Rana (c), Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Jason Roy, Andre Russell, Rinku Singh, Shardul Thakur, Sunil Narine, Vaibhav Arora, Harshit Rana, Suyash Sharma, Varun Chakaravarthy, Venkatesh Iyer (Impact Player)

After their 5-run victory over the Mumbai Indians in the previous game, LSG is almost through to the playoffs.

Quinton De Kock and Deepak Hooda in the last match got out early. They need to get off to a good start as KKR don't have a good pace attack. Stoinis and Pooran are in good form; they have done really well in past matches for LSG.
