This article gives PBKS vs LSG My11Circle Team Prediction; detailed analysis on Pitch Report, Playing XIs, Fantasy XI.
Time: 19.30 IST.
Venue: MCA Stadium, Pune.
Captain Rahul has been absolute “KLaas” for the LSG in this year’s IPL. With two centuries in the tournament already, he is in race for the Orange cap sitting at the second place only behind Jos Buttler. Speedster Dushmantha Chameera has fired up the bowling department with his express pace. They are the most balaced side packed with world class allrounders and are the title contenders of IPL 2022. The Punjab Kings are also a champion side this year. Dhawan, Captain Mayank, the firepower of Livingstone, KG Rabada; the side is loaded with match winners. It is expected to be a cracker of a fixture between two in form sides; fingers crossed!
For the chasing teams, the MCA Stadium has been a happy hunting ground. The presence of dew is a significant factor in night games at this site, and the team that wins the coin toss has a considerable advantage. The pitch should be substantially easier to bat, particularly in the second inning. If the dew sets during the second inning, batting will ease off even more, and the team defending a score will need those extra 10-15 runs.

PBKS vs LSG Probable Playing XIs:
PBKS: The Punjab Kings have never won the tournament before inspite of having numerous match winners in their squad. But this time around with the inclusion of Rabada in their bowling lineup and Livingstone as a finisher, all bases appear to be covered for the franchise. Also the addition of Shikhar Dhawan and Rahul Chahar has provided the requisite Indian talent. The only concern for them is the form of their captain Mayank Agarwal who has been a star for them in the past couple of years. If Mayank finds some form, they might be the team that goes all the way to the final.
Shikhar Dhawan, Mayank Agarwal (c), Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Rishi Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Sandeep Sharma, Arshdeep Singh.
LSG: The two new franchises LSG & GT currently are performing like champion teams. LSG have plenty of quality allrounders which makes them the most balanced side in the tournament. They have as many as 7 proper bowling options and that’s been their main strength. The form of captain KL Rahul and speedster Dushmantha Chameera makes them the favourites in the clash.
KL Rahul (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, Marcus Stoinis, Krunal Pandya, Jason Holder, Dushmantha Chameera, Avesh Khan, Ravi Bishnoi.
