Walking into the 53rd match of IPL 2022, we see Lucknow Super Giants facing off the Kolkata Knight Riders tonight at MCA stadium, Pune. This is the first time both the teams are playing against each other this season.
One of the two new franchises this season – LSG turned out to be one of the well-balanced and tricky teams of IPL 2022. The team has a good start, followed by a couple of losses, and then back on the winning streak again. Though KL Rahul seems to be the only one taking full batting responsibility, de Kock and Deepak Hooda are aiding too, at times.
And with Jason Holder, Chameera, and Ravi Bishnoi’s magics in bowling, they’re passing in almost every difficult situation.
After having a flying start, KKR was hit with 5 consecutive losses. One of the serious problems they face is the opening batsmen, where the team had already tried 5 difficult pairs this season, with all failing to make a 50-run partnership even. Their top foreign players – Pat Cummins and Andre Russell haven’t been so helpful yet.
This led only skippers and some middle-order batsmen like Rinku Singh and Nitish Rana to carry the bat weight, and Sunil Narine and Umesh Yadav to hold the ball well. Yet, they’re still hoping to surpass the traffic in the point table’s middle, and secure a spot in the playoffs.
