Punjab Kings will have their heads up after a close but deserved victory against Rajasthan Royals but a loss against the Sunrisers and would like to regain their winning momentum in this match. With their star players in form and giving out valuable performances, it will be beneficial for them. On the other hand, Lucknow Super Giants will be soaring with confidence and would like to continue what they are doing – winning. Their players, barring captain KL Rahul are in amazing form.
Probable Best Batter of the Match
Nicolas Pooran showed in the last game of Lucknow Super Giants why he is regarded as one of the most dangerous finishers in T20 cricket. He struck every ball that came his way and showed his power and skills to help the Lucknow Super Giants win a game out of nowhere. This is the reason why he may be the best batter in the match between the Lucknow Super Giants and the Punjab Kings.
Probable Best Bowler of the Match
Arshdeep Singh has been a stand-out bowler for Punjab Kings for a few seasons now and he has also been in good form in this edition as well. He would look to continue the same and ensure that he turns out to be the best bowler of the match between Lucknow Super Giants and Punjab Kings.
Lucknow Super Giants will be up against the Punjab Kings in the 21st Match of TATA Indian Premier League 2023 from the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow on 15th April 2023. For the viewers, the match will be telecast live at 7:30 pm on Star Sports network on television and Jio Cinema on your mobile handset.
Black soil surfaces, which aid pacers more and are hence considered pace-friendly, are used at Ekana Cricket Stadium. Spinners are also anticipated to contribute in the middle overs. In this place, dew will be an issue in night matches. As bowlers struggle to hold the ball, the second inning’s bowling will be particularly difficult. In this Ekana Cricket Stadium, it is safe to predict that the side that wins the toss will choose to chase.
Today’s Match Prediction: Final Thoughts
While one team would try to gain some momentum back, and the other one to continue, it will be interesting to see how things pan out. Both the teams look strong and that is why it seems that we are in for a treat. The home advantage might play for the Lucknow Super Giants and that is why they will start as the favourites of this match.
