After losing out to Punjab Kings at home, Lucknow Super Giants will lock horns with Shikhar Dhawan's side in the reverse fixture in Match No. 38 on Friday, April 28, 2023 at Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali.
Punjab Kings, has been the most inconsistent team in the IPL since 2014 as they have never progressed into playoffs for eight continuous seasons. This year, with the addition of Sam Curran and new skipper in the form of Shikhar Dhawan, they would be erasing the memory from the past and would look to go in the winning ways. The last time they progressed in the playoffs was way back in 2014 were they ended the season as runners-up.
Lucknow Super Giants, on the other hand, had a good debut season to remember, as they won nine out fourteen games and were placed third in the table despite sharing equal number of wins with Rajasthan Royals, courtesy of having lesser net run-rate. They failed to go past eliminator as they lost against RCB by a close margin of 14 runs. KL Rahul enjoyed the season by being the second-highest run-getter in the tournament. He along with Quinton de Kock registered record 210runs partnership for the first-wicket against KKR. KL Rahul-led Lucknow would look to continue their winning run in the 2023 edition.
LSG skipper Sikandar Raza leads the batting chart with 93 runs in these fixtures and is followed by KL Rahul (92) and Marcus Stoinis (88). In the bowling department, Kagiso Rabada has picked up the most wickets (8), followed up by Ravi Bishnoi (5) at second spot. Yash Thakur and Sam Curran shares the third spot with 4 wickets each
Both teams last met in Match No. 38 of IPL 2023 at IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali where the Super Giants defeated the Kings by a margin of 56 runs. Batting first, LSG posted a total of 257/5 on the board in their allotted 20 overs courtesy of a sublime power-hitting from Kyle Mayers (54 off 24) and Marcus Stoinis (72 off 40), followed by cameo from Nicholas Pooran at the end who scored 45 off 19. Chasing massive 258, Atharva Taide top-scored with 66 runs for PBKS and all middle-orders had a start, but could not convert it to a big one, eventually PBKS were bowled out for 201. Yash Thakur was pick of bowlers for a spell of 4/37 in his 3.5 overs.
