LKN vs PBKS: Dream 11 Top Picks
Shikhar Dhawan (PBKS)
The veteran hitter scored just eight runs against the Gujarat Titans in the previous game, but he has been in terrific form this season. He leads the IPL 2023 scoring table with 233 runs from four innings, including two half-centuries.
Nicholas Pooran (LKN)
The West Indian hitter has been in phenomenal form this season, scoring 62 runs off 19 balls to help Lucknow chase down the massive goal of 213 against RCB. The southpaw has scored 141 runs in four innings, averaging 47 and striking out 220.31.
Ravi Bishnoi (LKN)
The wrist spinner has had good competition, taking six wickets at an average of 19.00 and an economy of 7.12. With the pitch predicted to aid spinners, Bishnoi’s leg-spin will be used again and is expected to confuse Punjab’s hitters.
