Punjab Kings vs Lucknow Super Giants Match 42 – Players to Watch

Shikhar Dhawan

Shikhar Dhawan was named player of the match in the previous game against CSK. He batted 88 times off 59 pitches, contributing to the team’s 187-run total. Dhawan is PBKS’s current leading run-scorer and would be expected to provide the team with a fiery start once more.

Liam Livingstone

Liam Livingstone has only taken two wickets, but he has been an important part of PBKS’ batting unit. He has 245 runs in 8 matches at a strike rate of 187.02 and an average of 30.62. He has three half-centuries so far in the season and we are sure to see him punch in those runs as the tournament progresses.

Jason Holder

Jason Holder has maintained his reputation as one of the game’s best all-rounders. Holder has taken 9 wickets in 6 matches at a strike rate of 16, an average of 23.22, an economy of 8.70, and a strike rate of 23.22. He is a very dependable player in the lower middle order and if the team suffers a top order collapse, Holder has the ability to hold his ground and score those big runs.

KL Rahul

He is a player who is improving with every game, in terms of his batting form and captaincy skills. He is in free scoring form at the moment and has amassed 368 runs in 8 matches and is currently a front runner to winning the coveted orange cap. We expect KL Rahul to put in a performance against the Punjab Kings.
