It will be a battle between two north Indian franchises – Punjab vs Lucknow on Friday. While Lucknow have been one of the more consistent teams in this year’s tournament who currently find themselves in the top four of the points table, Punjab aren’t too far behind despite a losing streak in between.

While Lucknow have 5 wins and 3 defeats from their 8 matches, Punjab have four wins and as many losses in the 8 games. The two sides have never met before in IPL which will make it all the more interesting.

Ahead of their encounter, here is a stat-based prediction of which way the game might proceed when these two sides meet at the MCA Stadium in Pune on Friday.

1. Toss Prediction

Punjab have had horrible luck with the tosses and have won just 1 toss in their last 8 games. On the other hand, Lucknow have won 4 out of their 8 tosses. So predicting Lucknow to win this toss.

2. Win Possibility

Since there is no head-to-head record as this will be the first meeting for both the teams, the record for the current season is the only way to predict the outcome. In the current season, Lucknow have a better win percentage and have looked in great form. So based on that stat alone, predicting Lucknow to win this contest.

3. Team of the Day

The Team of the Day is Lucknow who enjoy a superior ranking in the points tally at the moment.

4. Powerplay Score

The average powerplay score at the MCA Stadium in Pune is 40.8. Both sides are expected to score over 40 runs in the powerplay with some talented and in-form stroke makers in the top-order of both teams. Moreover, the best is yet to come from Lucknow’s Quinton de Kock and Punjab captain Mayank Agarwal and if they join the party, this total will easily be dwarfed during the fielding restrictions.

5. Average first innings and second innings score

172 is the average first innings total at this venue in IPL 2022. By contrast, the average second innings total here is 155.85.
