PBKS scored 214 runs in that match, MI also got a solid start but they fell short of 13 runs. Arshdeep Singh was the start of Punjab Kings who took four wickets by conceding 29 runs in his 4-over spell. On the other hand, LSG won 4 out of 7 games and would like to win their next match again.

The pitch will likely remain balanced throughout the match. The ground has some big boundaries and the batsman needs to connect the ball very well. The average of first innings score in the last five matches is 158 runs and the team winning the toss would like to bowl first. The bowlers doing variations will get more advantage.
PBKS Vs LSG Match Prediction
PBKS will begin as favorites in the upcoming match, being the hosts. If Shikhar Dhawan, the skipper, returns to action, it will boost the home side’s chances. LSG, however, is likely to retain the same combination, which means Quinton de Kock may have to wait for his turn.
The only night match at the venue this season was won by the chasing team, so the captains may be tempted to follow that pattern. PBKS is in good form and confident, but they must also be cautious of their former captain’s skills. He returns to a venue where he has performed well as a batter.
