THE LOWDOWN

LUCKNOW SUPER GIANTS

  • Lucknow Super Giants are the final team to complete their second fixture of the 2024 IPL and they come into it still pointless after losing their first match at the hands of Rajasthan Royals.
  • Although Nicholas Pooran showed with his 64 not out that he’ll be a key asset for Lucknow across the tournament, chasing a target of 194 was always going to prove difficult against a bowling attack of Rajasthan’s quality and the Super Giants finished on 173/6.

PUNJAB KINGS

  • It’s one win at home and one defeat on the road for Punjab Kings so far across this current IPL season, so they’ll need to find a different formula if they are to emerge successful in Lucknow.
  • No batter being able to go on and make that big score proved their undoing vs Royal Challengers Bangalore, their score of 176/6 underpinned by a top-score of just 45 from Shikhar Dhawan, whilst RCB’s Virat Kohli hit 77 as part of a successful run chase.

THE PREDICTION

We have to take into account the sheer dominance of home teams over the course of this season’s IPL so far when predicting the winner of any individual fixture currently. On paper, these two sides appear to be well-matched with even head-to-heads in most departments. But Lucknow having that crucial home advantage could well be what swings things in their favour, that added experience of conditions and the ground being so important. Expect a close game, but for Lucknow to squeeze home.
