Lucknow Super Giants have a complete bowling attack and have an edge in this fixture.Recommended Bet by 10CRIC
The contest will see the interesting contest between Punjab Kings’ bowling attack against KL Rahul, their former captain. The LSG skipper has been in fine form this season, notching up two hundreds already.
Keep an eye on…
Shikhar Dhawan: Shikhar Dhawan has donned the anchor role in this Punjab Kings line-up and has been fairly successful at it. Punjab will hope he can bat deep again and empower the middle-order to focus on ball hitting.
KL Rahul: With two tons in the season already, KL Rahul is in good nick and has unfinished business with Punjab Kings, his former franchise. The opener and LSG skipper will be key to Lucknow’s chances this match.
TIP: Shikhar Dhawan has been in good form. Back Shikhar Dhawan at 3.76 to be Punjab’s top batter!
