KKR vs LSG in IPL 2022: Three dream match ups to watch out for as Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul battle for top honors

KKR vs LSG: The Rahul-led LSG need just one victory to seal a playoff berth, while KKR need a win to keep their playoffs hope alive. With stakes so high, here are three dream match ups to watch out for.

1. KL Rahul vs Umesh Yadav

KL Rahul is the leading run-scorer for LSG with 469 runs from 13 games. If the skipper starts well, then LSG more often than not posts challenging scores. The right-hand batter also relishes scoring runs against KKR as he has scored 383 runs in 11 innings playing for RCB, SRH and PBKS. However, Rahul has to negate one threat in the form of KKR pacer Umesh Yadav.

Yadav has been scintillating in the power play as he has taken 16 wickets from just 11 matches. The pacer has managed to take 8 wickets in the power play. Yadav has also dismissed Rahul once in seven innings. This battle would be fascinating and will determine the course of the game.

  1. Nitish Rana vs Avesh Khan

Rana has been one of the key batters for KKR in IPL 2022. The southpaw has scored 319 runs at an impressive strike rate of 139.3. He has scored the third-most runs for KKR this year. With a do-or-die clash against LSG, KKR would be hoping Rana fires. The southpaw though needs to be watchful against LSG lead strike bowler Avesh Khan.

The young pacer has taken 17 wickets in 11 innings at a superb average of 18.35. Avesh has also gotten the better of Rana two times in 17 balls. This match-up promises to be a riveting one between these two young players.

  1. Deepak Hooda vs Sunil Narine

Deepak Hooda has been one of the positives for LSG this season. The all-rounder has scored runs consistently and has 406 runs from 13 games. It is the highest amount of runs he has raked up in an IPL season. The 26-year-old will be hoping to continue with same form and momentum against KKR. The right-hand batter has to be wary of Sunil Narine.

The KKR spinner has dismissed him once at a strike of 66.67. Narine has the upper hand, but Hooda would like to settle scores this time around.
