LSG vs KKR Dream11 Prediction

Match Number  53

Venue: MCA Stadium, Pune

The pitch has been slightly on the slower side at the MCA Stadium this season, with the spinners playing a big role in the previous game. While there has been some swing on offer for the pacers, the batters should enjoy the brand new ball skidding on to the bat

Pitch Report

As the match progresses, the pitch should slow down and bring the spinners into play. Dew should come into play in the second innings, forcing teams to prefer chasing upon winning the toss. 160 should be a good total at the venue, with wickets in hand being key.

Playing XIs

LSG XI Quinton de Kock (wk), KL Rahul (c), Marcus Stoinis, Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Jason Holder, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohsin Khan, Dushmantha Chameera and Avesh Khan/K Gowtham.

KKR XI Aaron Finch, Baba Aparajith (wk), Shreyas Iyer (c), Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Shivam Mavi, Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav and Anukul Roy.

Must Try

Shreyas Iyer: Shreyas Iyer has been fairly decent for the Kolkata Knight Riders, scoring over 300 runs so far. Iyer is a good player of spin, but high-end pace has been his weakness this season. But with the KKR captain looking in good touch in recent games, he is one to watch out for today.

Andre Russell: Andre Russell has been one of KKR's go-to players, coming up with explosive knocks with the bat. Although he didn't bowl in the previous game, Russell predominantly bowls in the death overs, maximizing his wicket-taking ability. With Russell's all-round ability bound to come into play, he is a must-have in your LSG vs KKR Dream11 fantasy team.
