Kolkata Knight Riders will look to get back to winning ways but Lucknow Super Giants will pose a big threat. Check KKR vs LSG probable XIs, head-to-head record

It will be a battle of two titans in the top four as the Kolkata Knight Riders will take on the Lucknow Super Giants at the Eden Garden in a doubleheader on Sunday. As both teams come from a loss in their previous clashes, they will be looking to strengthen their place in the points table and stamp their authority over each other. KKR faltered in their last encounter against the five-time former champions Chennai Super Kings in a low-scoring match. LSG on the other hand, were stunned by the Delhi Capitals on Friday.

The KL Rahul-led side will seek consistency from their batting order after a miserable performance against the Capitals. They will also be backing up their young finisher Ayush Badoni who helped LSG breathe easily after their foreign lineup of Quinton De Kock, Nicholas Pooran and Marcus Stoinis failed to deliver. Left-hander Devdutt Padikkal has also looked off-colour this season while their star bowler Mayank Yadav will miss out too.

As for KKR, who had a similar last match against CSK, they will be counting on their customary opening stand from Sunil Narine with Phil Salt alongside him. While their bowling unit has been decent so far, they will be looking to replicate their previous stints of 200+ scores which they posted versus Sunrisers Hyderabad and the Capitals. Meanwhile, Rinku Singh will be a star attraction as he enjoys batting against LSG and has a good record against them.

KKR won their previous showing at their home ground against SRH in their first match and will be backed by a massive crowd. It will be interesting to see how the LSG will rise to challenge against the hosts.

Head-to-head record

The Super Giants have dominated the two-time former champions in their previous three showings by winning all of them. The last time they met was at this very venue where Lucknow stole a narrow one-run victory last year. KKR will be looking to break the streak of losses as they take on the Giants in their fifth match of the season.

Pitch Report.

The Eden Gardens is batting friendly track and likely to favour pacers in the initial stages of the game. In the first few matches, the spinners didn't get much assistance from the surface while the pacers also get hammered all around the ground.
