The 38th match of the Indian Premier League 2023 is set to witness a thrilling encounter between the Punjab Kings and Lucknow Super Giants. These two teams have only faced each other once in the league so far, with Lucknow emerging victorious by a margin of 20 runs in their previous encounter.

The last game saw an impressive performance by the Lucknow Super Giants, particularly their opening batter Quinton de Kock who scored a valuable knock of 46 runs to help his team reach a total of 153. Despite a seemingly low score, the Lucknow bowlers stepped up and displayed a brilliant show of defending the total, ultimately restricting the Punjab Kings to just 133 runs. Mohsin Khan took three wickets, while Dushmantha Chameera and Krunal Pandya picked two wickets each, ensuring the win for their team.

As a result of this previous victory, the Lucknow Super Giants have a certain edge over the Punjab Kings in the upcoming match. However, it would be unwise to count out the Punjab Kings just yet, as they have a strong track record and the odds are in their favor to potentially secure another win under their belt. The fans are eagerly anticipating this clash between the two teams and the players are gearing up to put up their best performances. It remains to be seen which team will emerge victorious in this exciting encounter.

PBKS vs LSG Prediction and Tips

PBKS Team Reviews

The Punjab Kings, a team in the Indian Premier League, have only managed to reach the top four of the tournament twice in their history - firstly in 2008 and then again in 2014, where they finished as the runners-up. In the last four editions of the tournament, they have consistently finished in sixth place, although in 2022, this was out of a total of ten teams rather than the usual eight.

Looking ahead to the upcoming 2023 auction, the Punjab Kings have made the decision to release their captain Mayank Agarwal, as well as several other players including Sandeep Sharma, Odean Smith, Vaibhav Arora, Ishan Porel, Benny Howell, Ansh Patel, Prerak Mankad, and Writtick Chatterjee.

Despite these changes, the Punjab Kings have shown some early promise in the current edition of the tournament, having won two out of their first three league games. Their batting has been a standout feature for the team so far, and they will be hoping to build on this as they continue to compete in the IPL.

LSG Team Reviews

During the inaugural season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2022, the Lucknow Super Giants displayed a commendable performance by securing the third position in the league stage. However, the team failed to progress beyond the Eliminator stage, losing to the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

As the 2023 IPL auction approaches, the Lucknow Super Giants have made some changes to their team by releasing seven players, including Jason Holder, Manish Pandey, Dushmantha Chameera, Evin Lewis, Shahbaz Nadeem, Andrew Tye, and Ankit Rajpoot.

Despite these changes, the Lucknow Super Giants continue to showcase an impressive performance in the ongoing tournament. This is largely due to the presence of outstanding hitters like Nicholas Pooran and Kyle Mayers, who have established themselves as key players for the franchise. As a result, the Lucknow Super Giants have emerged as one of the top contenders for the IPL trophy this season.
