The RPSG Group, headed by Sanjeev Goenka, is the LSG owner for the 2023 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The Lucknow Super Giants was one of the two teams, along with Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans (GT), that came into existence in the 2022 edition of the cash-rich T20 league in India.
They roped in KL Rahul and made him their skipper for the inaugural edition. Rahul came into the LSG team after a couple of fabulous seasons with the bat for the Kings XI Punjab, now Punjab Kings, although his team failed to advance to the playoffs every other time.
Rahul led the Super Giants to the playoffs where they lost to Faf du Plessis’ Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Eliminator. Rahul was among the leading run-scorers of the tournament along with Quinton de Kock, who also scored a hundred against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
The 2022 IPL also brought to the fore the dynamic Mohsin Khan, who impressed one and all with his immaculate line and lengths. Not only was he economical, but was a genuine wicket-taker for his team in the tournament.
Mohsin, however, is not a part of the ongoing season he is nursing an injury. The Super Giants, in the meantime, unearthed a gem in Kyle Mayers, who has batted with a lot of ferocity this season. In fact, even after de Kock from national duties, LSG have persisted with Mayers as their opening batter.
The likes of Deepak Hooda, Ravi Bishnoi, Krishnappa Gowtham have also performed well for the Super Giants in the IPL. LSG play their home matches at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow.
The Super Giants started their campaign in the ongoing season with a 50-run victory over David Warner’s Delhi Capitals. Thereafter, they faced a 12-run defeat at the hands of MS Dhoni’s CSK, who were playing at the Chepauk for the first time in four years since 2019.
The Super Giants bounced back by beating Aiden Markram’s Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by five wickets. They followed it up with a one-wicket win over RCB. Nicholas Pooran smashed a 15-ball half-century and won the Player of the Match award to take LSG past the finish line.
After their fifth match where they lost to Shikhar Dhawan’s Punjab Kings (PBKS), they were placed second in the table with six points and a net run rate of +0.761.
