IPL 2023: Punjab Kings continue to struggle as they lose early wickets in pursuit of 258-run target against Lucknow Super Giants

Punjab Kings lost their second wicket in the form of opener Prabhsimran Singh, who failed to make any impact on the game. Prabhsimran was called in as an impact player, but his poor performance with a strike rate of 69.23 did not help the team’s cause.

Naveen-ul-Haq was the bowler who dismissed Prabhsimran, caught by sub Daniel Sams. The delivery was a length ball slanted in on leg, and Prabhsimran attempted to pull it, but unfortunately hit it straight to deep backward square. He walked back to the pavilion with just 9 runs off 13 deliveries, including 2 boundaries.


This wicket puts more pressure on the Punjab Kings, who are chasing a massive target of 258 runs set by Lucknow Super Giants. The team needs a strong partnership and consistent batting from the remaining players, including experienced batters Liam Livingstone and Sam Curran, to have any chance of winning the game.
