A confident Punjab Kings, coming on the back of a brilliant win against Chennai Super Kings will take on the Lucknow Super Giants who are also coming off a win against the Mumbai Indians.
By winning this game at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune, Punjab have a chance of making their way into the top four and they would displace Lucknow from their position in the top four. Thus the team from UP will be eager to win this equally as well.
Therefore it is important to know how the teams shape up before this game and the players that will be part of the Playing 11.
Here's how the Playing 11 of PBKS and LSG would look like
As for the Punjab Kings, they rested the likes of Shahrukh Khan, Odeon Smith and Vaibhav Arora and while the replacements in form of Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Rishi Dhawan played important roles in the victory the replacement of Vaibhav in the form of Sandeep Sharma wasn’t really up to the mark and hence Punjab could think of playing Vaibhav again.
The Super Giants on the other hand are happily playing the players they have trusted. Mohsin Khan who came in place of injured Avesh Khan also did well and made himself noticed. Though he will be dropped if Avesh is fully fit and that would be the only change in the Lucknow Playing 11. But there is no doubt now that he will always remain in the reckoning for a chance in future.
PBKS Predicted Playing 11
Shikhar Dhawan, Mayank Agarwal (C), Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Liam Livingstone, Jonny Bairstow, Jitesh Sharma (Wk), Rishi Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Arshdeep Singh, Sandeep Sharma/ Vaibhav Arora
LSG Predicted Playing 11
Quinton de Kock (Wk), KL Rahul (C), Manish Pandey, Krunal Pandya, Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, Marcus Stoinis, Jason Holder, Avesh Khan/Mohsin Khan, Dushmantha Chameera, Ravi Bishnoi
