LSG vs PBKS Team Previews

Lucknow Super Giants

The Lucknow Super Giants have made a good start this season, winning 3 of the 4 matches they have played, and are comfortably placed in the top-4.

While the batting for the LSG wasn’t up to the park in the first couple of matches, batsmen including KL Rahul, Marcus Stoinis, and Nicholas Pooran have gradually picked up form to make Lucknow a formidable batting line-up. All-rounders including Ayush Badoni and Krunal Pandya also add depth to their batting.

Kyle Mayers, who played a couple of devastating innings at the start of the season will have to play another good inning here and give the home team a good start. With Mark Wood back in the playing XI, the seam attack appears well-balanced. But the likes of Avesh Khan and Jaydev Unadkat leaked too many runs in the match against RCB and that is one area where the team will have to look into.

Ravi Bishnoi and Amit Mishra make up for a formidable spin attack and Rahul will be banking on them to bowl a few tight overs in the middle of the innings to tie up the Punjab batting.

Punjab Kings

The Punjab Kings started their campaign with back-to-back wins. But they have now lost 2 consecutive matches to drop down to the lower half of the points table.

Except for Shikhar Dhawan, the batsmen have lacked consistency and as a result, the batting has often been the Achilles heel for the team. Prabhsimran Singh has been dismissed for 2 consecutive ducks and will need to step up soon.

Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Matthew Short got good starts in the last match but squandered them away rather than playing a big inning. Sam Curran, who is one of the costliest players to feature this season, hasn’t been able to shine with either the bat or the ball. Arshdeep Singh has been the pick of the bowlers with 7 wickets but has received little support from the other end.

Harpreet Brar has been quite economical but has failed to pick up wickets. It is a similar story with Rahul Chahar, the only specialist spinner on the team. However, the arrival of Kagiso Rabada should be a positive going ahead.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the Ekana Stadium is a bit tricky to bat on. The grass is a bit patchy and there may be some low or inconsistent bounce as the ball holds onto the pitch. The batsmen will need to settle down before they start playing the big shots. Anything over 170 can get difficult to chase here. The weather is expected to remain on the warmer side with temperatures of between 30-35 degrees Celsius.


LSG vs PBKS Betting Tips

Looking at the current form of both teams, we are backing the Lucknow Super Giants to win here. They are carrying a good momentum with them and playing under home conditions will be an advantage for them. On the other hand, the Punjab Kings have been struggling in the last couple of games and the batting looks especially weak.

Bet on the Lucknow Super Giants to win.


Bonus Cricket Bets

  1. Betway


    Lucknow Super Giants First 6 overs

    Over 42.5 (1.43)


The Lucknow Super Giants have a strong top order and plenty of batsmen who can score runs at a brisk pace. On the other hand, the Punjab Kings’ bowling hasn’t been in the best of forms and we can expect a good start for the home team during the Powerplay.

  1. 1xBet


    Lucknow Super Giants Total 4’s

    Over 12.5 (1.75)


This is an attractive bet because of the quality of batting for the home team. Players like Kyle Mayers, Rahul, Stoinis, and Nicholas Pooran are all capable of playing good shots and we should see plenty of boundaries scored from them.

  1. Rajabets


    Top Batter Runs

    Under 71.5 runs (1.80)


As mentioned earlier, the pitch in Lucknow isn’t the easiest to bat on. The batsmen will need to get themselves settled before they can start playing their shots. The bowlers will get plenty of opportunities to get wickets here. While we will see some batsmen making good scores, we think it is improbable that someone will score over 71.5 runs here.
