Punjab Kings will take on Lucknow Super Giants in the reverse fixture to be played at PCA Stadium, Mohali at 7.30 PM today in the IPL 2023.
Both teams’ batting looks solid but has not delivered according to expectations. The pitch at PCA Stadium, Mohali is expected to be a good batting pitch. Lucknow Super Giants could not chase 136 runs at Lucknow after being in a commanding position against Gujarat Titans.
It promises to be an exciting contest with two good batting units that can change the course of the match with their batting skills.
Here we look at the 3 Players Who Could Score the Most Runs between LSG and PBKS:
- KL Rahul
The Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul looked sluggish in the initial stages of the IPL 2023 but produced some good knocks with 2 half-centuries to his name.
It was a disappointing outing for KL Rahul as he could not finish the game against Gujarat Titans. He would be looking to showcase his skills with a better strike rate and help Lucknow Super Giants win the match.
KL Rahul needs to provide an aggressive start in the first six overs and not let Punjab Kings bowlers settle. With the experience of playing against his former IPL team, the LSG captain must be looking for a captain’s knock and help the team win the match.
- Shikhar Dhawan
Shikhar Dhawan is expected to make a comeback into the playing XI after 2 matches for Punjab Kings due to an injury. He will open the innings and provide a decent start against disciplined Lucknow Super Giants bowling.
He will look to provide stability at the top of the order for Punjab Kings and lay a foundation for a formidable total against the LSG bowling line-up. Dhawan would be eager to lead the side and help Punjab Kings register a win.
It will be interesting to see if Dhawan could play with the same intent after missing a few matches due to injury.
- Kyle Mayers
The left-handed West Indies player Kyle Mayers looked in good touch against Gujarat Titans with a quickfire 24 off 19 deliveries but was not able to convert it into a big score. He has scored so 243 runs from 7 matches with 3 half-centuries with a strike rate of 157.33.
Kyle Mayers has provided aggressive starts in the first six overs to put pressure on the opponent bowlers. He would be looking to continue his brilliant form against Punjab Kings and help to retain his place with Quinton de Kock waiting for his chance.
He will be eager to provide a decent start with KL Rahul in the first six overs and make life tough for PBKS bowlers helping LSG win.
