Indian T20 League 2022: Kolkata vs Lucknow Fantasy Cricket Match-Ups

By Parameswaran Sankaranarayanan May 17, 2022

Playoff hopefuls Kolkata and Lucknow will clash against each other at DY Patil Stadium in match 66 of the Indian T20 League 2022 season. Despite back-to-back wins, Kolkata's playoff hopes look bleak as they have to pick up two points on Wednesday and must hope Bangalore and Delhi will lose their respective final league stage games. 

With 16 points from 13 matches, Lucknow, who lost their last two games, are on the cusp of reaching playoffs. A win will help them clinch a spot in the final four and climb second in the standings. 

We look at five interesting First Games fantasy cricket Match-Ups in the Kolkata-Lucknow match. 



Deepak Hooda has been brilliant with the bat of late. The 59 against Rajasthan saw the Lucknow all-rounder go past 400 runs in the 15th edition. Though, he is likely to finish behind Quinton de Kock in the fantasy points chart as the South African, who has amassed 362 runs so far, scored a half-century against the two-time champions this season.

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season:

Q de Kock - 45.46;D Hooda - 47.84



Kolkata captain Shreyas Iyer will be keen to register a big knock after adding just 27 runs in his previous three innings. He meets an in-form Nitish Rana, who has scored 57, 48*, 2, 43, and 26 in Kolkata's last five games. Shreyas holds the edge over his teammate in this Match-Up. 

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season:

S Iyer - 41.84; N Rana - 38.38



Tim Southee, in red-hot form, is the favorite in the Match-Up against uncapped pacer Mohsin Khan. The Kiwi pacer, third in Kolkata's leading wicket-takers chart, has taken 14 wickets in just eight outings. Mohsin produced a terrific performance against Kolkata a few days ago. He removed Baba Indrajith in the opening over and conceded just six runs, including a maiden, in three overs. 

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season:

T Southee - 52.50; Mohsin K - 48.42




Umesh Yadav has been Kolkata's stand-out performer in the 15th edition. The 34-year-old has picked up 25+ fantasy points in ten out of the 11 matches. With 17 wickets at an economy rate of 7.86, Avesh Khan is Lucknow's leading wicket-taker. He has claimed 4/24 against Hyderabad at DY Patil Stadium. The senior fast bowler Umesh is likely to emerge victorious in this Match-Up. 

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season:

U Yadav - 52.81; Avesh K - 47.54



Mystery spinner Sunil Narine will lock horns with all-rounder Venkatesh Iyer. The West Indian has picked up just one wicket in three outings at DY Patil Stadium, while Venkatesh has made 58 fantasy points the last time Kolkata played at the venue. Narine could pick up more points than the Indore-born cricketer tonight.

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season:

S Narine - 30.38; V Iyer - 26.45
