The 42nd game between the Punjab Kings and Lucknow Supergiants would be an important one for both teams. The Punjab Kings come here having defeated the Chennai Super Kings while the Lucknow Supergiants also won their last game against the Mumbai Indians by a big margin.

The Punjab Kings side has a strong batting line-up on paper with skipper Mayank Agarwal and Shikhar Dhawan in good form. Shikhar Dhawan and No. 3 batter Bhanuka Rajapaksa played well in the last game and the same would be expected from them. Liam Livingstone, Jonny Bairstow, and Jitesh Sharma add to the side’s batting firepower, and they would have to excel against Lucknow’s good bowling attack in this game.

Kagiso Rabada is looking in good form and he will have to play a vital role in this game. Sandeep Sharma needs to bowl better lines as Lucknow Supergiants have big hitters of the ball in the side. Arshdeep Singh’s good show in the last game would add to the side’s confidence but they need better spells from Rahul Chahar and Rishi Dhawan in this game.

After a win in their last game with a relatively new combination, Punjab Kings might not look for any changes in the playing eleven. Bhanuka Rajapksa will continue to bat at No. 3, whereas, Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone & Jitesh Sharma will form the middle order.

Shikhar Dhawan had a sedate start to his IPL 2022 season as he scored 43 off 29 balls against RCB but scored only 16 against KKR. He has scored 92 runs so far. He comes to a franchise after having scored almost 1200 runs for Delhi across four seasons.

Punjab Kings bought him for Rs. 8.25 crores during the auction. Last year, Shikhar Dhawan gave a magnificent batting show playing for Delhi Capitals. He scored 587 runs in 16 games in IPL 2021. He is the second-highest run-getter in the history of the IPL after Virat Kohli. He has scored 302 runs in 8 IPL 2022 games averaging 43.14 with 2 fifties and is Punjab’s leading run-getter this season.
