LSG vs PBKS IPL 2023: Ekana Cricket Stadium Lucknow Pitch Report

The upcoming match between Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow is expected to be an exciting encounter. The pitch at this venue has generally favored the pacers, but spinners have also played a crucial role in the middle overs.

In the opening game of the season played at this venue, LSG scored a massive 193 runs in their first innings, indicating that the pitch is also suitable for high-scoring matches. However, the dew factor can become a significant concern during night matches, making it challenging for the bowlers to grip the ball in the second innings.

Considering the recent trend at this ground, the team that wins the toss is likely to opt to bat first and post a big total on the board. Defending a target at this venue has generally been easier than chasing, and the team batting first has won most of the matches played here.

Both LSG and PBKS have strong batting line-ups, and a high-scoring match is anticipated. However, the team that can adapt to the conditions and execute their plans better is likely to emerge victorious in this match. Check out Ekana Stadium Lucknow IPL numbers,

Is Ekana Cricket stadium Lucknow batting or bowling pitch?

In the two games played here so far, we have witnessed batters and bowlers dominating in different games. The first game played here between LSG and DC saw batters making most of the conditions in the first innings as LSG scored 190+. However, the pacers dominated the second half of the innings with Mark Wood scalping a 5-fer.

On the other hand, in match no 2 played at this venue between LSG and SRH saw the spinners domination. It was a low scoring contest as 248 runs were scored in the match. We witnessed two different wickets in two different games at the Ekana Stadium, therefore, it is quite tough to predict how the pitch will behave.
