PBKS vs LSG Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Pitch Report IPL 2023 Match 38 | PBKS vs LKN Dream11 Prediction Today | Mohali Pitch Report

How do Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) bounce back after losing the unloseable game against Gujarat Titans last weekend? KL Rahul, despite his questionable innings, could not put a finger on it. But, he and the team have had time to digest such a result, and need to bounce back in this crucial game against Punjab Kings (PBKS).

PBKS have been one of the surprise packets in IPL 2023, often holding their nerve to seal victories. Their last effort was a strong performance in Mumbai, and with Shikhar Dhawan expected to return, they have a great opportunity to move into the top four. Indeed, with Arshdeep Singh and co. in terrific form, they are very capable of doing so.

Both LSG and PBKS sit on eight points. The winner will enjoy a place in the top four, while the loser will be stuck in the mid-table logjam that is making this IPL a very exciting one. Crucial match.

Match Details

  • Location: Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali.
  • Time: 7:30pm (IST).
  • Last match for both teams: LSG lost to GT by seven runs, PBKS beat MI by 13 runs.
