KKR vs LSG LIVE Cricket Score: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) went with an unchanged lineup after opting to field against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in their final home game of the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL).
While KKR were unchanged for the crucial fixture at the Eden Gardens, LSG brought Karan Sharma and Krishnappa Gowtham in place of Deepak Hooda and Swapnil Singh.
Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will aim to seal their qualification for the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL) playoffs when they take on Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Eden Gardens on Saturday.

KKR, too, will aim to keep their playoff hopes marginally alive, for which they will have to defeat LSG convincingly in the second game of the Saturday double-header while hoping other results in the Sunday double-header also favour them.
Lucknow will be sporting maroon kits in the Saturday encounter to honour the iconic football club Mohun Bagan — who are also owned by the RP Sanjiv Goenka Group. They currently sit at the third spot on the IPL 2023 points table, tied on 15 points with Chennai Super Kings (CSK), with a victory all but confirming their place in the knockouts.
Should Chennai lose their final league game, against Delhi Capitals in Delhi in the afternoon clash of the Saturday double-header, Lucknow could actually finish second with a victory and setup a Qualifier 1 clash against defending champions and table leaders Gujarat Titans (GT).
Kolkata, on the other hand, are seventh on the points table with 12 points from 13 outings and a Net Run Rate (NRR) of -0.256 that could hinder their progress into the knocks despite a victory on Saturday.
Not only do they have to defeat Lucknow by a huge margin to go level with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Mumbai Indians (MI), they will also have to hope both MI and RCB lose their final league fixtures, against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and GT respectively, on Sunday for them to occupy the fourth spot.
