After 16 unsuccessful seasons, they will be looking to make amends and get their hands on the trophy for the first time.

The Lucknow Super Giants, on the other hand, advanced to the playoffs both times after coming into existence back in 2022 along with Gujarat Titans. They lost to the Mumbai Indians (MI) by 81 runs in the Eliminator and crashed out of the tournament.

Best match in the Punjab Kings vs Lucknow Super Giants head to head

 Punjab Kings won the toss and chose to bowl first against Lucknow Super Giants at the Maharashtra Cricket Stadium in Pune.

Fast bowler Kagiso Rabada threw a decent length delivery to LSG captain KL Rahul to get the outside edge, and Jitesh Sharma dove to his right to dismiss Rahul early in the innings. LSG's scoring methods were unaffected by Rahul's departure, as Quinton de Kock and Deepak Hooda collaborated with some stunning strokes to consolidate their innings. De Kock hammered his compatriot Rabada for three straight sixes in the powerplay.

Wickets crumbled when de Kock and Hooda's 85-run partnership was broken up. LSG was bowled out for 13 runs after losing five wickets in three overs. Mohsin Khan (13 runs in six balls) and Dushmantha Chameera (17 runs in ten balls) helped LSG break the 150-run mark, closing at 153/8.

Punjab made a strong start to their modest chase, reaching 46 for 1 after powerplay overs. Ravi Bishnoi was pricey at one end, surrendering 41 runs from four overs and dismissing Shikhar Dhawan at the top.

Krunal Pandya bowled a short spell of 2/11 from his four overs to hold the middle order tight. The left-arm orthodox handed up only four runs in his final 18 deliveries, including a maiden wicket over. He subsequently took a low catch at third man to remove Jonny Bairstow's (32 in 28 balls) threat.

Mohsin took two wickets in the late middle order to end with 3 for 24 as the Super Giants held the Kings to 133/8. The 20-run victory boosted KL Rahul and his team's playoff chances.

It will be an interesting watch to figure out who will get the lead in the Punjab Kings vs Lucknow Super Giants head to head.
