Punjab Kings vs Lucknow Super Giants IPL

It has been an inconsistent ride for both Punjab and Lucknow so far. With both teams stacked together and separated only by net run rate, the winner has the incentive of going as high as second. Our pick is in the powerplay though with Lucknow Super Giants primed to score more in the first six overs than the Punjab Kings.

  • Punjab Kings have conceded the highest powerplay score in 3 of their last 4 matches (IPL)
  • Punjab Kings have struck the most 6s in 5 of their last 7 matches (IPL)
  • Lucknow Super Giants have posted the highest powerplay score in 4 of their last 6 matches (IPL)
  • Lucknow Super Giants have struck the most 6s in just 2 of their last 7 matches (IPL)

Head to Head


These two teams have met each other twice and have shared the results. Earlier in the season when the teams met in Lucknow, it was the Kings who won by two wickets. Sikandar Raza’s 57 anchored the chase.

Punjab Kings Form


Punjab Kings have eight points from seven matches with four wins. After starting the season with consecutive wins, they have won only two of their next five.

Shikhar Dhawan has been their best batter with 233 runs despite playing only four matches. With the ball, Arshdeep Singh with 13 wickets has been a real star for the Kings.

The challenge for Punjab continues to be finding the right batters to close out matches.

Punjab Kings Team News


Shikhar Dhawan and Kagiso Rabada were unavailable for the Kings for the last few matches.

Lucknow Super Giants Form


Lucknow Super Giants have eight points from seven matches with four wins and three losses. They have been alternating wins and losses across their last four matches, culminating in a seven-run loss to Gujarat.

KL Rahul with 262 runs and Kyle Mayers with 243 have been the best batting bets for Lucknow while Mark Wood with 11 wickets is their best bowler despite playing only four matches.

The Lucknow side has been notoriously slow in the overs post powerplay which has seen them lose the initiative despite Mayers starting aggressively.

Lucknow Super Giants Team News


Lucknow missed the services of Mark Wood who was unavailable for the last few matches. It is not yet sure if the speedster will be available here. If so, he would love the pacey conditions on offer in Mohali.

Verdict

Lucknow and Punjab have been inconsistent with their results and that’s showing in their table standings. As they look to rise above the mid-table muddle, it could be a test of who starts well. Lucknow are well placed, as things stand, to start well in the first six overs. I am backing the Lucknow Super Giants to score more powerplay runs than Punjab Kings.
