Young pacer Mohsin Khan who replaced his teammate Avesh Khan was also impressive. The 23-year-old grabbed the wicket of Dewald Brevis and gave away only 27 runs in his four-over quota.
Indian spinner Ravi Bishnoi managed to grab only one wicket in his previous match and gave away 28 runs in his three overs. The youngster who has six wickets so far would now be looking forward to adding more to his tally against PBKS.
Pacer Dushmantha Chameera was one of the key bowlers for Lucknow in the last game against MI with figures of 0/14 in his four-over quota. The right-arm pacer can rattle the opposition with the new ball in hand along with his well-disguised yorkers.
Indian batter Manish Pandey has got some starts but has not managed to convert them. The right-handed batter stroked just 88 runs from six games with his highest score being 38.
West Indies all-rounder Jason Holder has not been to score runs but has managed to bowl some tight lines.
Left-handed batter Krunal Pandya, on the other hand, has scored 112 runs including three not-outs, and has already scalped seven wickets to his tally. The 31-year-old has been the silent performer for his side and will want to take some crucial wickets against the strong-looking batting line-up of the Kings.
Barring his last outing, batter Deepak Hooda has been impressive this season, having scored 193 runs at a strike rate close to 130 and including a couple of half-centuries.
Ayush Badoni after giving some vital performances during the early stages has failed to get going in the past few matches.
Australian big unit Marcus Stoinis has not been able to scalp any wickets in the tournament, but he has played some excellent knocks with the bat.
Quinton de Kock has been in and out of form in the tournament. The wicketkeeper-batter has stroked 225 runs from eight matches including two half-centuries with his highest score being 80.
Skipper KL Rahul has been in some excellent touch having scored three centuries in the tournament. The right-handed batter stroked his last century against the five-time champions in the previous match. Rahul has so far amassed 368 runs at an average of 61.33 and will look to continue his good form with the bat.
