Punjab Kings will take on the Lucknow Super Giants in Match 42 of IPL 2022 at the MCA Stadium in Pune. Both sides are coming off a win in their previous game and they have had some good outings as well. The Mayank Agarwal-led side managed to defend their total against the CSK on account of an excellent death bowling exhibition from the likes of Arshdeep Singh and Rishi Dhawan.

On the other hand, the Lucknow Super Giants put out an impressive show in their previous game against the Mumbai Indians and got their campaign back on track. With five wins in eight games, the KL Rahul-led side are currently placed at the fourth position in the points table with ten points.

Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter of the Match: Liam Livingstone

Liam Livingstone played another quick cameo for the Punjab Kings in their previous game after coming in at four and helped his side get off the blocks. The right-hander hit two sixes and a four in his 7-ball 19 and provided the final flourish that was needed for the Punjab Kings desperately. He will be looking to continue his good form in the tournament.

Probable best bowler of the Match: Arshdeep Singh

Arshdeep Singh has quietly become one of the best death bowlers in the tournament so far with an excellent economy rate and the left-arm seamer has managed to repay the faith shown by the franchise. He managed to hold his nerves against top finishers like MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja and gave away just 23 runs including taking a wicket against CSK.
