PBKS vs LSG – IPL – Team Previews
The Punjab Kings, having secured a 13-run victory over the Mumbai Indians at Wankhede, will be aiming to maintain their winning momentum as they play on their home ground. In their previous game against Lucknow Super Giants, Sikandar Raza’s 57 off 41 and Shahrukh Khan’s unbeaten 23 off 10 balls helped them win by two wickets in a nail-biting encounter.
This game also marked Sam Curran’s debut as captain for PBKS. Arshdeep Singh has been a standout bowler for the team in this season of IPL, with 13 wickets in seven matches at an economy rate of 8.16. He will be looking to continue his impressive form against LSG. The clash between KL Rahul and Arshdeep Singh could be the deciding factor of the match.
Dhawan has been out due to injury for a few fixtures now, and it remains to be seen if he will return for this match. If he does, it would release stand-in captain Sam Curran from his duties. It remains to be seen if the Punjab Kings will recall Kagiso Rabada for this match. In the last game, Liam Livingstone replaced Rabada in the playing XI, and now the Kings management will have to decide whether to bring back Rabada or stick with Livingstone.
Lucknow Super Giants
Despite winning four out of seven games this season, Lucknow has been inconsistent in its performance. They are currently seventh on the points table but ahead on net run rate. In their previous game against Gujarat Titans, they failed to chase down a target of 135, resulting in a loss. KL Rahul scored 68 runs at a strike rate of just 111.47 before their chase was derailed by late wickets.
LSG’s top order has been struggling with a slow strike rate in recent games, leading them to consider making changes to their playing XI. The Super Giants have not played since their last match and may be rusty.
Moreover, they have not yet found a spot for Quinton de Kock, the South African big-hitter, in their team, but this match could be an opportunity for him to make his debut this season.
