Power Play scores:
A lot will depend on the KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock opening partnership as if they managed to play first 6 six overs, they should be able to post 50-55 runs. For Kolkata Knight Riders, the road is somehow different as even they have played 13 games so far, they will unable to find a perfect opening combination, in the last two games they tried with Venkatesh Iyer and Ajinkya Rahane, which somehow helped the team to provide a steady start, but Ajinkya Rahane is ruled out due to hamstring injury, they might bring back Aaron Finch, so we can expect a score in the range of 40-45, if batted first.
Death Over scores:
Both teams have power hitters in their line-ups, and considering that one can expect a firecracker show in the death overs. If one of the main batters of LSG remains till last then they can post 4-45 in the death overs. While Kolkata Knight Riders might put 40-45 on board in the final four overs.
Lucknow Super Giants can post 170-180 if their opening duo provides them a strong start. While Kolkata Knight Riders might score in the range of 160 to 170 runs, if they batted first.
