Punjab vs Lucknow prediction and tips for Indian T20 League 2022
Unlike Punjab, Lucknow are yet to play a match at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium this season. Despite that, Lucknow will have the odds in their favour for the match as the balanced wicket will suit their team make-up better.
Compared to the spinners, pace bowlers have had better success at the venue, which means Lucknow’s pace battery of Avesh Khan, Dushmantha Chameera and Jason Holder will be key to the outcome of the match.
Taking spinners into account, wrist spinners have done better compared to the finger spinners at the MCA Stadium. This puts former Punjab leggie Ravi Bishnoi in the spotlight.
If the bowlers can dismiss Punjab’s top order early, Lucknow have a very good chance of picking up full points from the fixture.
