Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) hosted Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in the Indian Premier League 2023 (IPL 2023) competition at the Eden Gardens. Both the teams are still in the race to make it to the playoffs. So far only Gujarat Titans have passed. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are also likely to clinch a spot with a win over Delhi Capitals in the afternoon game on Saturday. LSG need to win this match and they will. However, they will be aiming for a big win so that they can topple CSK to clinch the top two spot. The top two teams get one more chance to make it to the finals.

How can KKR qualify for the playoffs?

The chances of KKR qualifying for the playoffs are almost impossible. The Nitish Rana-led side has 12 points from 13 matches at a net run rate of (-0.256). Even if they win against LSG, they can only get 14 points, which will put them at par with Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore. In this scenario, KKR would be praying for Mumbai and Bangalore to lose their respective games by huge margins so that they become the fourth team to qualify on the points table.

Kolkata weather ahead of the LSG vs KKR match

The weather in Kolkata was not conducive to cricket due to rains for the past few days. The Eden Gardens ground has been covered for at least two days now. It looked as if the match would be washed out. But the good news came on Saturday morning, there were no signs of cloud cover. According to Accuweather, no rain has been predicted in Kolkata from 7 pm to 11 pm at the time of the match.
