Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will be up against Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the 11th match of the IPL 2024. Both the teams are on the back of a loss in their previous games. While LSG lost to RR by 20 runs in their first game of the league, PBKS lost to RCB by 4 wickets in their last match. Both the teams were in a good position to win the respective matches. While LSG needed about 49 runs in the last 4 overs, PBKS needed to defend 41 runs in the last 20 balls.

Both the teams would be regretting to have lost their last game. They have a chance to redeem themselves by winning the upcoming match. It will be the first home game of LSG, as Ekana Stadium is set to host the match. Both teams have some of the best players in the world. PBKS have the experienced duo of Shikhar Dhawan and Jonny Bairstow as their skippers. To follow him are the emerging batters like Prabsimran Singh, Shashank Singh, and Jitesh Sharma.

The 2014 finalists have some very good All-Rounders in their lineup like Sam Curran, Liam Livingstone, and Sikandar Raza. In their bowling lineup, the visiting side has the likes of Kagiso Rabada, Arshdeep Singh, and Harshal Patel as the pace trio. In the spin department, PBKS have the likes of Harpreet Brar and Rahul Chahar. Likewise, LSG have some very good players in their lineup. They might have a bit of an advantage, considering how well they are versed with the home conditions.

Here is the predicted XI of LSG for the game against PBKS in the 11th match of the IPL 2024:

Openers – KL Rahul (C & WK) and Quinton De Kock

Lucknow Super Giants have many options for opening. While Kyle Mayers and KL Rahul started in the previous season, the 17th season saw Rahul opening with Quinton De Kock in the first game against RR. Mayers is unlikely to feature in the game due to the team combination. De Kock did fail in the first game and would be hoping to perform in the second match. The South African would be crucial for the success of LSG considering his record in the IPL.

To open alongside him would be KL Rahul. The skipper of LSG has also taken the responsibility of keeping the wickets. It looks like the star batter is aiming to make a return in the Indian side as a WK batter. For that to happen, he must have a good season in the IPL. The opener made good strides towards it in the first game by scoring 58(44) against RR, who had a very good bowling lineup. Rahul is likely to anchor the innings and allow others to bat around him.
