- The two teams will clash for the first time in the IPL.
- The Punjab Kings are currently ranked sixth in the Tata IPL points table for this season, while the Lucknow Super Giants are ranked fourth.
- Punjab Kings would be looking to put an end to Lucknow Super Giants skipper KL Rahul’s scorching batting form and secure a victory.
Punjab Kings will face the Lucknow Super Giants in IPL 2022 Match 42 at the MCA Stadium in Pune. Both teams are coming off a win in their previous game and have had some strong performances. The Mayank Agarwal-led team was able to defend their total against the CSK thanks to an outstanding death bowling display from the likes of Arshdeep Singh and Rishi Dhawan.
The Lucknow Super Giants, on the other hand, put up a spectacular performance in their last game against the Mumbai Indians and got their campaign back on track. The KL Rahul-led team is now fourth in the points standings with 10 points after five victories in eight games.
PBKS Vs LSG Head To Head
Given the fact that Lucknow Super Giants are a new franchise in IPL 2022, the two teams have never met each other in IPL.

Probable Best Batsmen Of The Match:
Shikhar Dhawan: He is Punjab Kings left-handed batsman. He has 305 runs in this tournament and can play a key role once again in this match.
Liam Livingstone: Punjab Kings’ Liam Livingstone is a right-handed batsman and right-arm leg-break bowler. He has so far scored 245 runs and taken two wickets in this competition, and he will be one of the top fantasy picks for this game as well.
KL Rahul: He is right-handed batsman who plays for the Lucknow Super Giants. He has scored 368 runs in this tournament so far and might come in handy again today.
Probable Best Bowlers Of The Match:
Arshdeep Singh: One of the season’s best death bowlers. Arshdeep bowled well in the final two overs against CSK.
Probable Best All-rounders Of The Match:
Liam Livingstone: The English middle-order batsman has been outstanding this season. With his raw power, he can accelerate and decimate any bowling side.
Krunal Pandya: The older Pandya brother hasn’t been steady, but he hasn’t dropped too much this season. There have also been a few match-winning efforts.
Both sides have yet to put together a strong lineup. So far, PBKS and LSG have won matches through the brilliance of a few individual players rather than a team effort. PBKS, however, functions better as a team than LSG. As a result, PBKS has a 60-40 probability of beating LSG.
