PBKS vs LSG IPL 2023 Match 38 Team News, Injury Update
PBKS Team News vs LSG: Shikhar Dhawan was the only injury worry for PBKS, but the skipper is likely to be fit to return to action for the first time after missing three matches due to a troublesome shoulder. If Dhawan is fit and ready to play, he will replace Atharva Taide in the line up.
Also, it’s very likely that South Africa pacer Kagiso Rabada returns to the playing 11 as well to replace Nathan Ellis. Rabada was not involved in the match against Mumbai Indians.
LSG Team News vs PBKS: Lucknow Super Giants have missed the services of paceman Mark Wood, who could return to the line up for PBKS match as the English speedster is likely to leave IPL early next month. If fit, Wood will replace Naveen Ul Haq.
Another position that could see a change in LSG line up is the opening slot with Quinton de Kock coming into the side to replace Kyle Mayers or Nicholas Pooran. But the choice to drop either West Indies player will be tough for the LSG management.
