IPL 2022 LSG vs KKR: Match preview and sponsors

LSG and KKR will face off for the first time in the competition.

In the 53rd game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will face Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) on Saturday, May 7 at the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) Stadium in Pune at 7:30 PM IST.

Lucknow Super Giants are also having an overwhelming outing into the marquee T20 league so far just like their fellow IPL debutants. After losing their inaugural game against Gujarat Titans (GT), LSG made a terrific comeback and are currently one of the contenders to win the title this season. The skipper, KL Rahul has been leading from the front by being consistent this season too. Out of the 10 games they played, the Lucknow-based team won seven matches and lost thrice. A victory on Saturday might fetch them the top spot on the leaderboard. With 14 points, LSG have acquired the second spot on the points table.

On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders also started the season pretty well but couldn’t sustain the momentum. Before beating Rajasthan Royals (RR) in their previous fixture, KKR were on a five-match losing streak. The Knight Riders weren’t able to get past the finish line. The Knight Riders’ chances of qualifying for the playoffs seem to be very slick at the moment. The two-time IPL champions need a miracle along with winning the remaining games. With eight points, KKR have occupied the eighth position.
