Lucknow Super Giants vs Punjab Kings T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

LSG will host PBKS in the 11th match of the IPL 2024. The match will be played at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow and will start at 7:30 PM IST on March 30.

LSG did not get off to a great start to the tournament as they suffered a 20 run defeat to RR. LSG had a lot to take out from the match. The result did not go their way but they can take heart from the performance of their bowlers. Yes, RR managed to score a mammoth 193-4 but LSG bowled reasonable well as well.

It was only the brilliance of Sanju Samson that helped the team post a big score. With the bat, KL Rahul got his off his tournament off to a great start and scored 58 runs. Nicholas Pooran also got handy runs under his belt and scored 64. There was a time when LSG were in the hunt for the chase but the wicket of Rahul swung the game in favour of RR.  On paper, LSG are a very strong side and playing at home will be a big advantage.

PBKS, on the other hand, defeated DC but lost to RCB. There are a few concerns for Punjab Kings. Dhawan has been good but Bairstow has not fired. Liam Livingstone has also been below par so far. With the ball, Rabada has been top notch but has lacked support. These issues are not new to PBKS and have troubled the team in the past.  PBKS have retained the core team for IPL 2024 so they will have to play out of their skin to win their maiden IPL title.

Teams would prefer to bat first on Lucknow pitch. Last season, the pitch got slower as the game progressed and chasing became extremely difficult.

LSG vs PBKS Pitch Report

The surface in Lucknow is likely to be sluggish again. There have not been many international games played here as well since last IPL. The wicket is likely to be sluggish again, with spinners being the major threat. A score of around 170 can be very tough to chase.

Lucknow Weather Report

The conditions will be warm and the temperature will range between 36 and 22 degrees. The high temperature will ensure that dew won’t be a factor in the match.

LSG Team News & Playing 11

LSG Team News

Given the slowness of the surface, LSG can play an extra spinner. Veteran Amit Mishra can be slotted in place of pacer Yash Thakur. The batting should remain the same, with Deepak Hooda coming in as impact player.

LSG Key Players

  • KL Rahul – KL Rahul has been one of the most consistent performers in IPL. Year after year, KL Rahul has piled on runs for his team. He got his IPL 2024 campaign off to a great start as he scored a brilliant 58 against RR.
  • Nicholas Pooran – Pooran has taken his game to another level in recent times. In whatever tournaments he has played since last IPL, he has performed admirably well. He put on a show against RR and played a magnificent innings of 64 in 41 balls.
  • Krunal Pandya – Krunal Pandya can be more than handy on the Lucknow surface. Being a spinner, his four overs will be valuable for LSG. He was the most economical bowler against RR and gave away just 19 runs in 4 overs. He is expected to create a lot of problems for PBKS batters. Also, he can chip in with handy runs down the order.
  • Ravi Bishnoi – Bishnoi was taken for plenty against RR, but the conditions in Lucknow will help him get into the groove. Bishnoi has been a trump card for LSG in middle overs and he’ll being looking to emulate his performance of last season this year too.

LSG Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Deepak Hooda,  Mayank Yadav, Amit Mishra, K Gowtham, Prerak Mankad

Deepak Hooda is most likely to be used as an impact player by LSG. However, if they are bowling second and they have not used Hooda, there is a chance of Amit Mishra getting a game as well if he is not included in playing XI. But Hooda is the most likely Impact player.

LSG Team Form

LSG have been consistent in the two seasons so far, making it to the playoffs in both editions. They lost to MI in the Eliminator last year.

LSG Predicted Playing 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/Amit Mishra

PBKS Team News & Playing 11

PBKS Team News

Rilee Rossouw is waiting in the wings for an opportunity but do Punjab Kings have the courage to drop Liam Livingstone, who has been a total flop. No , not now. Given the match winning abilities Livingstone brings, it is very tough to drop him. Rabada and Sam Curran are certain to feature. Jonny Bairstow can be the one to make way for Rilee but not so early in the tournament.

PBKS Key Players

  • Shikhar Dhawan – Dhawan is the most important player in the PBKS lineup. If PBKS have to win the tournament,  Dhawan will have to be at the peak of his prowess. The veteran got off to a good start to the tournament and played a brilliant hand of 45 against RCB.
  • Liam Livingstone – Yes, Liam Livingstone is inconsistent but if he has a good day, he will ensure that PBKS end up on a winning note. He brings so much quality to the table but it is a shame that he has not been able to light up the IPL as expected. However, he is working on his weakness and PBKS will hope that he finds form soon.
  • Kagiso Rabada – Rabada has been a consistent performer for PBKS. He has been mighty consistent but unfortunately, he has not got much support from the other end. Rabada will have a big responsibility on his shoulders to get early wickets for LSG. He picked two wickets for 23 runs against RCB.
  • Harpreet Brar – Brar was magnificent against RCB and picked two wickets for just 13 runs. He will enjoy the conditions in Lucknow and might well turn out to the match winner for PBKS.

PBKS Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Prabhsimran Singh, Rilee Rossouw, Harpreet Singh, T Thyagarajan, V Kaverappa

Prabhsimran will be the impact player in most scenarios. However, if PBKS is defending and any bowler has an off day, V Kaverappa can be slotted in but still, Prabhsimran has the greatest chances of getting the game.

PBKS Team Form

PBKS have been one of the most inconsistent teams in IPL. Last year, the team failed to reach the playoffs once again and finished in the second half of the table.

PBKS Predicted Playing 11

Shikhar Dhawan (c), Jonny Bairstow, Sam Curran, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Liam Livingstone, Shashank Singh, Harpreet Brar, Harshal Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Arshdeep Singh
