THE LOWDOWN

LUCKNOW SUPER GIANTS

  • A narrow four-wicket win for Lucknow Super Giants over Mumbai Indians was their sixth of the season and gives them a two-point cushion in the top four as it stands, although that could change by the time that they take to the field here.
  • Home form has been critical to the Super Giants’ success with four of their six fixtures in Lucknow having ended in victory, including that most recent one against Hardik Pandya’s side.

KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS

  • Kolkata Knight Riders held their nerve to bowl out Mumbai Indians for 145 in 18.5 overs chasing 170 on Friday, sealing a first win in 12 years for the franchise at the Wankhede Stadium.
  • It’s not been the easiest IPL campaign for mega-money signing Mitchell Starc, but the Australian left-arm pacer came good for KKR in Mumbai, taking four crucial wickets including three in the all-important 19th over, mopping up the home tail.

THE PREDICTION

Kolkata Knight Riders are finding ways consistently to emerge successful in close games which is such a valuable trait to have, clutching up in the most high-pressurised situations. However, Lucknow Super Giants’ home form cannot be underestimated and that advantage can be a critical factor for them here. This encounter really could go either way and the toss feels important with whoever winning it being in a strong position. But on the back of two straight wins, KKR may just have the edge.

TIP: KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS TO WIN
