Fourth Placed Lucknow team will take on the Seventh-placed Punjab in a crucial encounter today. Both the teams come from a victory, with Lucknow getting past Mumbai easily and Punjab putting it across Chennai.
Punjab vs Lucknow
Punjab with 4 wins from 8 matches and stuck with a negative run rate would be looking to win this match at a good run rate in this match as it would bolster their chance of qualification. On, the other hand Lucknow needs to maintain its winning ways to cement its place in the last four.
Lucknow’s skipper has been in sublime form of late with a couple of hundreds to his credit. However, the inconsistency of their middle-order has caused their side to lose a few games. It’s time for the batsman to step up and capitalize on their starts. Also, their bowling unit needs to be tightened up and not leak precious runs during the death overs.
Punjab on the other hand seems to blow hot and cold. Their batting unit has clearly struggled except for a couple of players, who have been performing well. Early wickets have dented their progress from registering a big total. The young bowlers in their team appear promising and all they need to do is maintain their momentum.
The pitch is bowler-friendly, unlike other flat tracks. So, we can see some assistance for the fast bowlers in the beginning and spinners in the later stages of the game. Teams have found it easier to defend the total here compared to other venues. So, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the toss winning captain chooses to bat.
