Match number 38 of the IPL 2023 will see Punjab Kings take on Lucknow Super Giants at the PCA Stadium in Mohali on Friday, April 28th. After playing seven matches each, both teams have won four matches each. However, Lucknow Super Giants currently hold the fourth position on the IPL 2023 points table, thanks to their superior net run rate when compared to Punjab Kings, who are in the sixth position.
The match between Punjab Kings and Lucknow Super Giants will see several former PBKS players, including KL Rahul, Ravi Bishnoi, and Nicholas Pooran, play against their former team.
These players had previously played for PBKS during the IPL 2021 season, along with Arshdeep Singh. After the conclusion of a practice session on the eve of the match, Pooran engaged in amusing banter with Arshdeep Singh

IPL 2023 | India National Cricket Team | Chennai Super Kings (CSK) | Delhi Capitals (DC) | Gujarat Titans (GT) | Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) | Lucknow Supergiants (LSG) | Mumbai Indians (MI) | Punjab Kings (PBKS) | Rajasthan Royals (RR) | Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) | SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH)
In a video posted on the official Twitter handle of Lucknow Super Giants, Nicholas Pooran, the former West Indies white-ball captain, can be seen shouting “Dal Makhni tonight” and making a request to Arshdeep by saying, “Arshdeep, can you carry us for Dal Makhni tonight?” In response, the star pacer agreed, but with the condition that Pooran promises not to hit him for a six.
Pooran humorously replied that he would only hit Arshdeep for singles, and requested him again to carry the team for Dal Makhni. In response, Arshdeep said that there’s more to life than just Dal Makhni. Inspired by Bishnoi, Pooran attempted to say “I don’t want to live that life” but failed comically.
Arshdeep Singh and Pooran have been in impressive form in IPL 2023, and their showdown on the field will be an exciting one to witness.
