PCA Stadium is historically considered a good chasing venue with an average par score here is around 170 runs for the team batting first. In the last game, RCB set the target of 174 runs by batting first and was able to restrict Punjab chasing the target which all thanks to good wicket-to-wicket pace bowling by Siraj & Harshal. The conditions are expected to be very similar from the last game tonight.
PBKS vs LSG Match 38 Probable Playing XIs
Punjab Kings is all set to bring in Kagiso Rabada tonight as the pitch will certainly offer some help to the pacers and they may even bring in Nathan Ellis for Prabhsimran Singh as part of their Impact Player strategy.
Lucknow Super Giants look all set and have a well-balanced playing XI on paper who can deal with both bat and bowl-first scenarios but we expect K Gowtham to replace Ayush Badoni as their Impact player and strengthen their off-spin option while bowling.
Below are the PBKS vs LSG Match 38 probable playing XIs.
Possible XII: 1 Shikhar Dhawan (capt), 2 Prabhsimran Singh, 3 Liam Livingstone, 4 Harpreet Singh, 5 Jitesh Sharma (wk), 6 Sam Curran, 7 Shahrukh Khan, 8 Harpreet Brar, 9 Kagiso Rabada, 10 Rahul Chahar, 11 Arshdeep Singh, 12 Nathan Ellis
Lucknow Super Giants:
Possible XII: 1 KL Rahul (capt), 2 Kyle Mayers, 3 Deepak Hooda, 4 Krunal Pandya, 5 Nicholas Pooran (wk), 6 Ayush Badoni, 7 Marcus Stoinis, 8 Naveen ul Haq, 9 Ravi Bishnoi, 10 Amit Mishra, 11 Avesh Khan, 12 K Gowtham
PBKS vs LSG Match 38 Dream11 Prediction
We have put more focus on the all-rounders while selecting our Dream11 Fantasy team as it’s an evening game and there will be a dew factor in the 2nd innings so the team batting first will want to push themselves more by 15 runs to give themselves a bit of cushion while defending the total.
Below is our best possible PBKS vs LSG Match 38 Dream11 team.
Wicket-Keeper – Nicholas Pooran
Batsmen – Shikhar Dhawan (c), Lokesh Rahul
All-rounders – Marcus Stoinis, Liam Livingstone, Kyle Mayers, Sam Curran (vc), Krunal Pandya
Bowlers – Mark Wood, Arshdeep Singh, Ravi Bishnoi
Shikhar Dhawan the Mr. Consistent for Punjab is our captain for the fantasy XI and he is expected to play a key role again tonight top of the order but one stat to keep in mind is Dhawan does struggle against the leg spinner Amit Mishra previously so it will be an interesting battle between these two experienced players. Sam Curran with no surprises is our vice-captain because of the impact he brings to the team and he also got a great head-to-head record in T20s against KL Rahul.
