KL Rahul-led LSG will face Shikhar Dhawan's PBKS on Saturday, April 15, in the IPL 2023 at their home ground Ekana Sports City in Lucknow. While LSG won their last two matches against SRH and RCB, PBKS are coming after back-to-back losses against SRH and GT respectively, so the momentum is with the LSG side.
PBKS have been heavily relying on skipper Dhawan to score runs at the top, so others around him need to step up and play a crucial role for the side. LSG have aggressive overseas batters like Marcus Stoinis, Kyle Mayers, and Nicholas Pooran to provide impactful performances for their side.
