LSG vs PBKS IPL 2023: Match Prediction
LSG have made a promising start to the season and have looked strong in both departments. Kyle Mayers, Nicholas Pooran, Mark Wood have been their standout overseas players, while Indian players Krunal Pandya, Ravi Bishnoi have also done well.
For Punjab, their batting has been overly dependent on Shikhar Dhawan and they have suffered as a batting unit in the last couple of matches. Arshdeep Singh with the ball also looked pale in the last match and they need to step up in the coming match against LSG.
LSG do have a balanced unit and they have better-quality players in their ranks, but Punjab have played well as a unit in the first two matches. It will important for PBKS to shrug off their narrow defeat against GT, but a better batting performance will be imperative to yield a positive result.
But, it still looks like the hosts LSG have the upper hand in the match and our prediction tilts the balance of the match in favour of KL Rahul and his team.
LSG vs PBKS Head to Head in IPL
These two sides have only met once, and Lucknow won the match last season by 20 runs. Mohsin Khan was the star with the ball for LSG in that match as he picked up 3 wickets.
