LSG vs PBKS pitch report

This is another typical IPL pitch, favouring batters and offering hardly anything to bowlers. However, it may provide some assistance to slower bowlers. This is the first time an IPL 2024 match will be played at this venue, so there is no prior point of comparison on how this year’s pitches may behave.

In LSG’s first match ever at the Ekana, they scored 193/6 against Delhi Capitals (DC) in IPL 2023, thanks to a fantastic debut by Kyle Mayers (73 off 38 balls). It is the highest IPL score in an innings at the venue. The only fifer here was by Mark Wood in the DC match.

LSG vs PBKS weather

The temperature will be around 32 degrees in Lucknow when the match starts. It will slightly cool down to 27 degrees later during the match. There is no chance of rain while the humidity won’t go beyond 40%.
