Punjab Kings (PBKS) will compete Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in Match 42 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at Pune’s Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium on Friday.
With 4 wins out of 8 matches, Punjab are placed at the sixth spot in the points table while Lucknow are comfortably positioned at fourth with 5 victories out of 8 games.
Four out of the seven games at the MCA Stadium have been won by teams batting first. Since there is a little bit of dew at this venue, losing the toss is not a problem. The spinners get assistance from the pitch as the game progresses.
