KKR vs LSG, IPL 2023: Rinku Singh took the game till the end, but not his day, Super Giants win by 1 run

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Lucknow Super Giants

Match 68 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 will be between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). 

For Lucknow, the equation is simple - a win will take them through to the playoffs regardless of what happens elsewhere. They might still go through it even if they lose. However, for this to happen they will need at least one of MI or RCB to lose. 

As for KKR, they are not only relying on other results but also need a massive win in this game to improve their NRR. They will need to beat LSG by at least 110 runs if they score 180 batting first.

    KKR vs LSG: Lucknow Super Giants win by 1 run

    LSG qualify for the playoffs, win by 1 run!

    Rinku had got the crowd at Eden Gardens hyped up. 

    He almost pulled off the impossible once again. 

    However, Rinku had no support from the other end.

    The hosts were 61/1 at the end of the powerplay, but after both openers departed, KKR were chocked by the spinners. 

    Bishnoi bowled a top spell of 2/23, and Krunal and Gowtham got amongst the wickets as well. 

    And then Naveen-ul-Haq and Yash Thakur bowled some tight overs by taking the pace off the ball.
