Punjab Kings will take on Lucknow Super Giants in the match 38 of the Indian Premier League 2023 at the PCA I.S. Bindra Stadium in Mohali. PBKS are going into this contest after a successful trip to Mumbai where they defeated MI in a close finish. On the other side, LSG suffered an unlikely loss against GT in a fixture which shouldn’t have been dragged into the last over in the first place. Irrespective of that, Punjab and Lucknow are on an upward trajectory in the IPL 2023 season and a win in their upcoming encounter will put either of the teams in good stead in the race for playoffs.

Pitch Report

Punjab Kings have been led brilliantly by stand-in captain Sam Curran in the absence of Shikhar Dhawan, their regular captain for 2023 IPL season. The English all-rounder has been really good with both bat and ball for PBKS. Players like Harpreet Singh Bhatia and Jitesh Sharma are standing up for Punjab in the batting department, while Arshdeep Singh and Nathan Ellis are doing the same for the franchise in the bowling department.

Lucknow Super Giants had to endure a shock loss against Gujarat Titans in their previous fixture as the captain KL Rahul got stuck and then lost his wicket in the last over of a relatively simple run chase. Meanwhile, the rest of the batting lineup didn’t turn up for LSG as the squeeze was on from the opposition bowlers, which isn’t ideal backdrop for a team leading into a tough encounter against a side like Punjab Kings. For Lucknow, at least in their bowling department, Avesh Khan, Ravi Bishnoi, and Mark Wood, have some confidence to fall back upon, as they are picking up crucial wickets match after match for the team.
