Lucknow skipper KL Rahul hit a splendid hundred in the last game against MI and together with Quinton de Kock forms a strong opening wicket pair. Manish Pandey needs to score at a better strike rate as he hasn’t had a great season. He must add runs with Marcus Stoinis and Krunal Pandya in the middle order. They have good depth in the batting with Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, and Jason Holder to follow.
Dushmantha Chameera bowled magnificently in the last game and look to bowl tight spells at the start of the game with Jason Holder.is likely to make a comeback into the side after sitting out against the Mumbai Indians due to an injury.
