If LSG is to succeed, KL Rahul must demonstrate his bat magic: Mohammed Kaif
On Saturday, the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will face the Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Ekana Cricket Stadium.
LSG are the early favourites versus PBKS because LSG skipper KL Rahul will be facing his former side Punjab Kings.

Speaking on Star Sports’ Cricket Live Show, Kaif said, “If Lucknow has to do well, then KL Rahul will have to show the magic with his bat. The fate of this team largely depends on his batting.”
Punjab Kings will once again be looking to bank upon their most expensive player Sam Curran for an all-round show against LSG.
Former India cricketer Virender Sehwag – who has been a part of Punjab set up as a player and mentor in the past – reckons the young England all-rounder along with fellow teammates Arshdeep Singh and Rahul Chahar will prove very crucial players for Punjab Kings in IPL 2023.
Sehwag said, “Sam Curran will prove to be a very important bowler for Punjab in TATA IPL. He has had a stellar run in the T20 World Cup and that confidence will work in favour of the team. Along with this, Arshdeep Singh, Kagiso Rabada, and Rahul Chahar provide strength to this team. Overall Punjab Kings have a very strong bowling unit.”
