Lucknow vs Punjab on March 30

 

LSG lost their first match against RR in Jaipur. Despite being in a decent position to win the match, LSG could not achieve the win and lost to RR by 20 runs. Much like LSG, PBKS were in a good position to beat RCB in their own backyard, particularly in the death overs. However, the finishing masterclass from Dinesh Karthik and Mahipal Lomror ensured RCB won the match by four wickets. Both teams have a lot to prove when they take on each other. LSG are currently placed last in the points table. In the early stages of the tournament, the net run rate of teams usually either soaks up too high or goes down too low despite not claiming mammoth wins or sustaining huge losses. LSG have bagged a Net Run Rate of -1.000 despite losing by just 20 runs. PBKS are in the fifth position with a win and a loss each. They have a net run rate of +0.025. One can expect a good match between the two sides. 

Best economical pick Harpreet Brar has been miserly in the tournament thus far with his left-arm orthodox bowling. In his seven overs, across two games, the 28-year-old has conceded just 27 runs at an incredibly low economy rate of 3.86 and has also bagged three wickets. Brar's role through the middle overs is going to be very crucial for Punjab.

Top captains & vice captains – Nicholas Pooran could be the batter to watch out for in this game. In IPL 2023, he had a stunning strike rate of 172.95, his best for a particular season in the cash-rich league. During the game against Rajasthan Royals, the southpaw looked in imperious touch as he scored an unbeaten 64 off 41 balls, belting four fours and as many sixes. If Pooran gets going, Punjab bowlers will be in for a rough night. Sam Curran won the match with the bat for PBKS against DC. Coming in at 42/2, the Southpaw anchored the chase well and scored 63 runs in 47 balls. The star All-Rounder would be hoping to make an impact with the ball against LSG.

Smart pick – Liam Livingstone can be handy both as a batter and as a bowler. In the game against DC, he finished well and helped PBKS to win. While Liam did not have a great game against RCB, he would be hoping to make an impact against LSG.

Cautious Pick – Shashank Singh has played both the matches for PBKS. However, he did not get to bat against DC and could not make an impact against RCB. As he bats lower down the order and does not bowl, Shashank might not bring value to a fantasy team.

My XI – Nicholas Pooran (Captain), Sam Curran (Vice-Captain), Liam Livingstone, Harpreet Brar, KL Rahul, Sikhar Dhawan, Quinton de Kock, Kagiso Rabada, Marcus Stoinis, Jonny Bairstow, Arshdeep Singh
