Punjab Kings and Lucknow Super Giants will play the 42nd match of IPL 2022 on Friday. Both these teams will face off for the first time in this season. After blowing hot and cold in the first half of IPL 2022, Punjab have eight points in as many outings and won their previous match against Chennai Super Kings which will be a huge boost leading into this match. On the other hand, Lucknow are placed fourth in the points table and have the safety net of one more win than PBKS. Although after winning their opening 3 matches LSG have been very inconsistent in terms of results. Both teams will be looking to come hard and this promises to be an exciting match.

Here are 3 players you can avoid in your fantasy teams for the PBKS vs LSG game:

1. Ayush Badoni

He scored a half-century in the opening match of the season but apart from that he has not got many chances to bat for long periods of time. He has scored 134 runs in 8 matches at an average of 26.8. Given a solid top order and his batting position it is difficult to predict if he can get enough balls to create an impact from a fantasy point of view. Hence ignore him for this match.

2. Manish Pandey

Manish Pandey has struggled throughout the season and was also dropped for a couple of matches in between before returning to the side. In 6 matches so far this season he has scored 88 runs at an average of 14.6 and a strike rate of 110. It is better to avoid him for this match and look at other options.

3. Sandeep Sharma

He was expensive in the previous match and has only played 2 matches this season picking up 1 wicket at an average of 77. Against a solid top order like the LSG it looks highly unlikely that Sandeep can be a threat with his pace. With plenty of better alternatives in the bowling section avoid him and pick other players.
