LSG vs PBKS match preview

Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) will face each other in the 11th match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow.

The Super Giants made a rough start to their campaign after losing to the Rajasthan Royals (RR) by 20 runs at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. After being asked to bowl, LSG bowlers faltered as the Royals scored 193 for 4. Naveen-ul-Haq picked up 2 crucial wickets of Jos Buttler and Riyan Parag.

Later, KL Rahul and Nicholas Pooran scored 58 and 64 not respectively, but their efforts were not enough for LSG to go past the finish line.

The Kings, on the other hand, began with a 4-wicket win over Rishabh Pant’s Delhi Capitals (DC), but then lost to the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

The upcoming LSG vs PBKS prediction is expected to be a close one as both teams are equally matched.

Lucknow Super Giants

The Super Giants did not quite have the best of outings against the Royals. Their bowlers were not quite on top of their game. Yash Thakur and Mohsin Khan leaked 88 runs from 7 overs. Thakur bowled at an economy rate of 14.30. Krunal Pandya was one of their positives after he had figures of 4-0-19-0.  

In the batting department, Quinton de Kock, Ayush Badoni, and Devdutt Padikkal could not get into double digits, and would be desperate to make amends.

The LSG vs PBKS prediction will depend on how the Super Giants eradicate the shortcomings from the previous game.

Lucknow Super Giants Possible 11: KL Rahul (c & wk), Quinton de Kock, Devdutt Padikkal, Ayush Badoni, Marcus Stoinis, Nicholas Pooran, Krunal Pandya, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohsin Khan, Naveen-ul-Haq, Yash Thakur

Punjab Kings

The Kings, on the other hand, had a great chance of winning back-to-back matches and getting off to a flying start. However, they faltered against RCB. Had Jonny Bairstow taken the catch in the slips when Virat Kohli was batting on 0, PBKS would have dictated terms to their opposition.

Had Arshdeep Singh and Harshal Patel hit their lengths in the death overs, PBKS could have had the last laugh. The Punjab team would be hoping that they make the Super Giants work hard.  

The outcome of the LSG vs PBKS prediction will depend on how the Kings polish their fielding and bowling from their previous game.

Punjab Kings Possible 11: Shikhar Dhawan (c), Jonny Bairstow, Prabhsimran Singh, Sam Curran, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Liam Livingstone, Shashank Singh, Harpreet Brar, Harshal Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar

Pitch report and expected weather conditions

The pitch at the venue in Lucknow is expected to be low and slow. A high-scoring match does not seem to be on the cards. Chasing targets in the 130s may even be tough to chase down. Spinners are expected to play a massive role.

Temperatures will be around 36 degrees Celsius. 9 percent cloud cover will be there, but there is no chance of rain for the time being. Wind gusts of 32 km/h will be there.

LSG vs PBKS Dream11 prediction

Our LSG vs PBKS Dream11 predictions for this match:

  • Wicketkeeper(s): Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul, Nicholas Pooran, Jitesh Sharma, Prabhsimran Singh
  • Batter(s): Shikhar Dhawan, Jonny Bairstow
  • All-rounder(s): Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran
  • Bowler(s): Kagiso Rabada, Harpreet Brar
  • Recommended captain: Sam Curran
  • Recommended vice-captain: KL Rahul

Sam Curran is not in the best of form as an all-rounder, but he can fetch points as a captain of fantasy teams. Curran has picked up only 1 wicket of Anuj Rawat in the 2 matches he has played until now. However, having scored 86 runs at an average of 43 with a top score of 63, Curran has been doing well with the bat in hand. If he finds his rhythm with the ball, he could give headaches to the best of teams in the competition.

KL Rahul is our choice as the vice-captain of fantasy teams. He has been a prolific run-scorer for the Super Giants over the last 2 seasons and will be high on confidence after his fifty against the Royals. He is again expected to play a key role for LSG in tough conditions in Lucknow.

LSG vs PBKS match prediction: Lucknow Super Giants to win

As per the LSG vs PBKS match prediction, the Super Giants are favourites to win the match. The Super Giants have won 2 out of 3 matches against the Kings. The only time these two teams played in Lucknow, the Kings beat LSG by 2 wickets after chasing down 160.

LSG vs PBKS toss prediction: Lucknow Super Giants to win the toss and bat first

As per the LSG vs PBKS toss prediction, teams should opt to bat first after winning the toss. The pitch is going to get tougher for batting and batters will have their fair share of challenges throughout.

Player of the Match prediction: KL Rahul

KL Rahul, the skipper of the Super Giants, looked in pretty good touch in the previous game. Opening the batting, he scored 58 runs off 44 balls with 4 fours and 2 sixes. Although he would have wanted to take his team past the finishing line, he would still be happy after getting some runs under his belt.
