LSG have been quite good this season so far and will hope for consistency as the season moves ahead. They are currently 2nd in the points table after 4 games with 6 points. The nrr is a +1.048.
Batting wise Lucknow can look to be dominating teams with proper standards. Bowling wise they will have to be clinical.
Coach and captain will have to be tactical.
On the other hand, Punjab Kings started off pretty well this season with wins but need to maintain the consistency required and can’t take the foot off the pedal especially in this form of the game. They are currently 6th in the points table after 4 games with 2 points. The nrr is a +0.226.
Batting wise their captain leads the way i.e Shikhar Dhawan and the rest can follow. Bowling wise they can be more clinical.
Coach and captain shall utilise the tactics well.
As for the wicket it will be a balanced one.

I think this game has the potential to go all the way to end but Lucknow has the home advantage. It also depends on toss. The better team in the end will win which makes lesser mistakes.
