The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will face off against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata for the 28th match of the ongoing Indian Premier League on Sunday, April 14.

KKR has had a strong start to the season, winning their first three matches on a trot. They defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad, Royal Challengers Bengaluru, and Delhi Capitals to begin the season on a high note. However, they faced their first defeat in their last game against Chennai Super Kings, who chased down a target of 138 runs with ease, winning by seven wickets with 14 balls to spare.

Sunil Narine has been instrumental for KKR. The West Indies all-rounder has excelled with both bat and ball, scoring 161 runs from four matches at an average of 40.25 and a strike rate of 189.41. With the ball, he has taken four wickets and maintained an economy rate of 7.38 per over.

Lucknow Super Giants began the season with a loss against Rajasthan Royals but bounced back to win three consecutive games against Punjab Kings, Royal Challengers Bengaluru, and Gujarat Titans. However, their last game saw them suffer a six-wicket defeat to Delhi Capitals, failing to defend a target of 168 runs at home.

Nicholas Pooran has been the top run-scorer for LSG this season. The left-handed batsman has scored 178 runs from five matches at an average of 89 and an impressive strike rate of 167.92.

Ahead of the game between KKR and LSG, here is all you need to know. 

KKR vs LSG: Kolkata Weather and Pitch Report

Historically, the pitch at Eden Gardens in Kolkata tends to favour spin bowlers, offering substantial turn and grip. This can make it challenging for batsmen to score runs easily. As a result, high-scoring matches are less frequent at this venue, and the team batting first often enjoys a better track record.

The afternoon temperature is expected to be around 35 degrees Celsius. Since there is no rain forecast, the game is likely to be a full 40-over match without interruptions.
