PBKS vs LSG Match Prediction -Who Will Win Today’s Match?


PBKS vs LSG: PBKS escaped a Rayudu scare to get two more points and keep them in a relevant position on the points table. Their bowling in the previous game was brilliant, showing vast signs of improvement, while the batting looked a little more sensible. There seemed to be a change in approach with Dhawan starting patiently and then playing a key and silent role as others attacked around him.

LSG are coming in with a win as well after KL Rahul’s one man show against the Mumbai Indians. They are in a good position on the points table despite occasional inconsistencies, and a win here could help take them to third or even second.

Key players

Arshdeep Singh

His left arm angle and ability to yorkers has made him a tough customer in the death, while his wicket-taking ability keeps him as a massive threat in the side.

KL Rahul

KL Rahul has two centuries this season and was the sole reason behind LSG’s win in their previous game. He was the only batter who looked comfortable, and with his class a lot more runs are expected this season.

PBKS looked better batting conservatively early on and also bowled better, giving them a strong edge in confidence against a shaky batting line-up in LSG.

Match Prediction: PBKS will win the match.
