Here are the three key player battles to watch out for during the LSG vs KKR match:

1) Marcus Stoinis vs Sunil Narine

Marcus Stoinis has become the leading batter for the LSG and his great run with the bat has wins few matches for the team as well. His biggest challenge would be to get pass the impact of Sunil Narine. Narine has been in stellar form and has been taking wickets for fun. His unique variations trouble the opposition batters and they are left with no choice but to get out cheaply.

2) Andre Russell vs Ravi Bishnoi

Andre Russell has been performing with the ball when called upon but with the bat, he has not yet had a good impact except one or two innings. On the other hand, Ravi Bishnoi has also not yet had a great season and his poor performance has cost him his place in the T20 World Cup squad. Therefore, it will be an interesting to see who will come up on top in this battle.

3) KL Rahul vs Mitchell Starc

KL Rahul has not yet been able to live up to his expectations so far in the IPL 2024. Rahul has been in decent form and would be hoping to make a big impact today against the KKR. But his biggest threat would be to get pass the spell of Mitchell Starc. Starc would be confident as he has a great record against Rahul. So, it will be an exciting battle to watch out for.
