  • KL Rahul scored a solid fifty vs RR and got his campaign off to a great start. He is the best choice to top score for LSG in the match. Also, Shikhar Dhawan is PBKS’ best batter and scored 45 in the last game vs RCB. He is a top choice for PBKS top batter.
  • The conditions will be favourable for spinners and the slow bowlers should pose the biggest challenge for batters on a sluggish Lucknow pitch. Ravi Bishnoi should return to form and bag at least two wickets for LSG while Harpreet Brar should continue his good run and be the top bowler for PBKS.
  • It’s a sluggish wicket and we saw in last season as well that runs after the powerplay were not easy to come. It is a six hitting ground and with field spread, scoring boundaries won’t be easy for the batters. Both teams should hit over 7.5 sixes in the match but total fours should be less than 29.5.

Toss Predictions

Teams would prefer to bat first on Lucknow pitch. Last season, the pitch got slower as the game progressed and chasing became extremely difficult.

Weather & Pitch Report


The conditions will be warm and the temperature will range between 36 and 22 degrees. The high temperature will ensure that dew won’t be a factor in the match.

Pitch Report:

The surface in Lucknow is likely to be sluggish again. There have not been many international games played here as well since last IPL. The wicket is likely to be sluggish again, with spinners being the major threat. A score of around 170 can be very tough to chase.

Team NEWS: 

LSG Team News: 

Given the slowness of the surface, LSG can play an extra spinner. Veteran Amit Mishra can be slotted in place of pacer Yash Thakur. The batting should remain the same, with Deepak Hooda coming in as impact player. 

PBKS Team News: 

Rilee Rossouw is waiting in the wings for an opportunity but do Punjab Kings have the courage to drop Liam Livingstone, who has been a total flop. No , not now. Given the match winning abilities Livingstone brings, it is very tough to drop him. Rabada and Sam Curran are certain to feature. Jonny Bairstow can be the one to make way for Rilee but not so early in the tournament.

Winning Chances: 

LSG will start the match as favourites. On paper, they are a better side. They have more quality in the batting while the presence of three quality spinners make them look better equipped for the sluggish conditions. They will have the home advantage to their side with all the crowd support that can also play a role. The team has played most of their cricket in Lucknow so LSG definitely are favourites to win.

Lucknow Super Giants to beat Punjab Kings.

Lucknow Super Giants a 74% chance to win this match 

Punjab Kings have a 26% chance to win this match 

 Key Players: 

Lucknow Super Giants 

KL Rahul 

KL Rahul has been one of the most consistent performers in IPL. Year after year, KL Rahul has piled on runs for his team. He got his IPL 2024 campaign off to a great start as he scored a brilliant 58 against RR.

Nicholas Pooran 

Pooran has taken his game to another level in recent times. In whatever tournaments he has played since last IPL, he has performed admirably well. He put on a show against RR and played a magnificent innings of 64 in 41 balls.

Krunal Pandya 

Krunal Pandya can be more than handy on the Lucknow surface. Being a spinner, his four overs will be valuable for LSG. He was the most economical bowler against RR and gave away just 19 runs in 4 overs. He is expected to create a lot of problems for PBKS batters. Also, he can chip in with handy runs down the order.

Ravi Bishnoi 

Bishnoi was taken for plenty against RR, but the conditions in Lucknow will help him get into the groove. Bishnoi has been a trump card for LSG in middle overs and he’ll being looking to emulate his performance of last season this year too.

LSG Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Deepak Hooda,  Mayank Yadav, Amit Mishra, K Gowtham, Prerak Mankad 

Deepak Hooda is most likely to be used as an impact player by LSG. However, if they are bowling second and they have not used Hooda, there is a chance of Amit Mishra getting a game as well if he is not included in playing XI. But Hooda is the most likely Impact player.

Punjab Kings 

Shikhar Dhawan 

Dhawan is the most important player in the PBKS lineup. If PBKS have to win the tournament,  Dhawan will have to be at the peak of his prowess. The veteran got off to a good start to the tournament and played a brilliant hand of 45 against RCB.

Liam Livingstone 

Yes, Liam Livingstone is inconsistent but if he has a good day, he will ensure that PBKS end up on a winning note. He brings so much quality to the table but it is a shame that he has not been able to light up the IPL as expected. However, he is working on his weakness and PBKS will hope that he finds form soon.

Kagiso Rabada 

Rabada has been a consistent performer for PBKS. He has been mighty consistent but unfortunately, he has not got much support from the other end. Rabada will have a big responsibility on his shoulders to get early wickets for LSG. He picked two wickets for 23 runs against RCB.

Harpreet Brar 

Brar was magnificent against RCB and picked two wickets for just 13 runs. He will enjoy the conditions in Lucknow and might well turn out to the match winner for PBKS.

PBKS Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Prabhsimran Singh, Rilee Rossouw, Harpreet Singh, T Thyagarajan, V Kaverappa 

Prabhsimran will be the impact player in most scenarios. However, if PBKS is defending and any bowler has an off day, V Kaverappa can be slotted in but still, Prabhsimran has the greatest chances of getting the game.

Team Forms: 

LSG Team Form: 

LSG have been consistent in the two seasons so far, making it to the playoffs in both editions. They lost to MI in the Eliminator last year.

PBKS Team Form: 

PBKS have been one of the most inconsistent teams in IPL. Last year, the team failed to reach the playoffs once again and finished in the second half of the table.
