Match Preview

Punjab Kings will take on Lucknow Super Giants at Mohali today for the 38th game of the IPL.

Looking back at their previous games, then the Punjab Kings defeated Mumbai Indians by 13 runs.

On the other hand, Lucknow Super Giants lost to Gujarat Titans by 7 runs but won against Rajasthan Royals by 10 runs.

Therefore, this game can be an interesting one between these two sides with everyone also expecting PBKS’ skipper, Shikhar Dhawan to be back for today’s game.

As of now, there is no confirmed news of Dhawan returning to the team anytime soon but PBKS have done well even without his services and will look to keep their winning momentum going.

Lucknow will also like to keep going in the tournament with positive intent and beat PBKS at home and climb up the points table.

Pitch Report

The wicket at Mohali is a great one for batters to bat on and will assist them more. While pacers will get some help in the initial overs, it will be totally a batters’ game throughout the match. Therefore, a score of 180 or even more can be a great score for the team batting first and the team winning the toss should look to field first.
