Shikhar Dhawan's 70 off 50 deliveries and his strong partnership with Jonny Bairstow was not sufficient for the Punjab Kings as the Lucknow Super Giants prevailed by 21 runs in the IPL 2024 clash on Saturday. The match saw the rise of Mayank Yadav, who breathed fire, taking figures of 4-0-27-3.

Lucknow Super Giants saw multiple contributions from Quinton de Kock, Nicholas Pooran, and Krunal Pandya to propel them to 199-8 in their stipulated 20 overs. While Sam Curran claimed 3 scalps in his quota of 4 overs, the likes of Harshal Patel and Rahul Chahar proved expensive to set themselves a stiff target eventually.

Toss Update:

The Lucknow Super Giants have won the toss and opted to bat first against Punjab Kings. LSG will be led by Nicholas Pooran while regular skipper KL Rahul will take part as an Impact Player only.

Pooran said that since Rahul is coming back from a quad injury, his body is being looked after carefully by the franchise therefore, he will be playing just one role - opening batter - in this match tonight.

PBKS meanwhile, are unchanged for this game.

LSG vs PBKS Preview:

The Lucknow Super Giants led by KL Rahul will look to open their win account when they host Punjab Kings in Match 11 of the IPL 2024 at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium.

LSG lost their opening game against the Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur.

PBKS on the other hand, won their first match against Delhi Capitals but lost the second against Royal Challengers Bangalore. They will look to return to winning ways in their third match of the campaign.

Pitch Report

Matthew Hayden and Brian Lara feel that wicket appears to have a slightly denser grass covering this time around, suggesting potential advantages for both pacers and spinners. Nevertheless, it seems favorable for batting, lacking any noticeable cracks. However, the presence of dew might play a role, hence winning the toss and opting to bowl first could be advantageous for the captain.

Lucknow Super Giants Squad: Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul(w/c), Devdutt Padikkal, Ayush Badoni, Deepak Hooda, Marcus Stoinis, Nicholas Pooran, Krunal Pandya, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohsin Khan, Naveen-ul-Haq, Yash Thakur, Mayank Yadav, Prerak Mankad, Krishnappa Gowtham, Amit Mishra, David Willey, Kyle Mayers, Ashton Turner, Shivam Mavi, Manimaran Siddharth, Yudhvir Singh Charak, Arshad Khan, Shamar Joseph, Arshin Kulkarni
