IPL 2023: Top 3 Vice-Captain Choices For Today’s PBKS vs LSG Game

PBKS vs LSG in IPL 2023

Punjab Kings (PBKS) will be taking on Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in this Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 game. The match will be played at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Jaipur and is slated to begin from 7:30 PM (IST).

Punjab would be hoping that their star players in the form of Shikhar Dhawan and Kagiso Rabada come back into the side after they have suffered a few injuries. Nevertheless, Sam Curran has been playing well, both as a player and as a captain.

Lucknow Super Giants had a nightmare of a game in the previous game against Gujarat Titans (GT) as they lost 4 wickets on the bounce in the final over, bowled by Mohit Sharma.

In this article, we take a look at the top 3 vice-captain choices for today’s PBKS vs LSG game that will be taking place in Mohali:

1. Sam Curran (Punjab Kings)

The stand-in-skipper skipper of Punjab Kings (PBKS), Sam Curran has been delivering the goods with both the ball and the bat. His impactful performances can be a major driving force towards making him your captain/vice-captain in your fantasy team.

In 7 matches, he has scored 142 runs for Punjab and has bagged 5 wickets. He is sure to bowl his entire quota of 4 overs in this PBKS vs LSG game and can be a good vice-captain choice.

2. KL Rahul (Lucknow Super Giants)

KL Rahul will be up against his former team and he would be raring to have a good performance against them. In the previous game, the swashbuckling batter scored a fifty and almost took his team across the finishing line.

Lucknow need KL Rahul’s performances with the bat and the Orange Cap winners of IPL 2020 can most certainly be a dependable vice-captain for your team in this PBKS vs LSG game.  

3. Arshdeep Singh (Punjab Kings)

Death-bowling specialist Arshdeep Singh should definitely be on your cards when you are choosing the vice-captain for your fantasy team. He has so far bagged 13 wickets in 7 games and delivered a match-winning final over against Mumbai Indians (MI) and took Punjab home.

Tim David and Tilak Verma were batting and Arshdeep defended the total. He clean-bowled Tilak Verma and Nehal Wadhera and also broke the stumps, showcasing his skill set and power. Singh had taken a 4-wicket haul in that game and had a stunning average of 15.69.

Arshdeep Singh is a dependable player and there is absolutely no reason as to why you should not make him your vice-captain for this PBKS vs LSG game.
