LSG vs SRH match preview
Lucknow Super Giants
Lucknow Super Giants have secured a solitary victory in two appearances. After winning against Delhi Capitals, LSG could not be proficient enough against Chennai Super Kings.
They conceded 217, with Ravi Bishoi and Mark Wood picking three wickets apiece. Then, Kyle Mayers (53) and Nicholas Pooran (32) tried their best, but the team lost by 12 runs.
Ahead of this game, Quinton de Kock has joined the LSG squad. He is likely to replace Marcus Stoinis, who has produced inferior performances as compared to Kyle Mayers, who is likely to retain his place.
LSG Possible 11: KL Rahul (c), Kyle Mayers, Quinton de Kock (wk), Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, Nicholas Pooran, Krishnappa Gowtham, Mark Wood, Ravi Bishnoi, Yash Thakur, Avesh Khan
It was a tough loss for the Sunrisers Hyderabad in their first game against Rajasthan Royals. The bowlers did well in the backend, but still conceded 203. T Natarajan and Fazalhaq Farqooqi returned with two wickets each.
The batters could not prove to be dominant, as SRH managed to finish on 131/8 in their designated quota of 20 overs.
Nevertheless, the Sunrisers will be elated to welcome skipper Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen and Marco Jansen in the side. All players have been in solid form and are likely to replace Harry Brook, Glenn Phillips and Fazalhaq Farooqi.
SRH Possible 11: Mayank Agarwal, Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram (c), Heinrich Klaasen (wk)/Genn Philips, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Adil Rashid, T Natarajan, Umran Malik, Fazalhaq Farooqi/ Marco Jansen
Pitch and expected weather conditions
The pitch at Lucknow was conducive for batters in the first game of this season between LSG and DC. It is expected that totals of around 160 would be the par score, with optimum help to the pacers due to the moisture in the surface.
LSG vs SRH Dream11 prediction
Wicket keepers: Quinton de Kock, Nicholas Pooran
Batters: KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal
All-rounders: Aiden Markram, Kyle Mayers
Bowlers: Umran Malik, Mark Wood, T Natarajan, Ravi Bishnoi, Adil Rashid
Recommended captain: Quinton de Kock
Recommended vice-captain: Mark Wood
Quinton de Kock and Nicholas Pooran will be the picks in the wicket-keeping column. Quinton will take care of the top order, while Pooran will look to contribute in the middle order for LSG. The Karnataka boys, KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal form a batting duo for this fixture. Although Rahul has not started well, he is expected to come back to form, while Mayank will look to convert his starts to big innings.
Aiden Markram will be back for SRH to lead and provide stability to the side. The Caribbean batter Kyle Mayers has been in splendid form, with two fifties on the trot and will be one of the best picks.
Umran Malik, T Natarajan and Adil Rashid impressed in their first appearance in the tournament, and could be chosen in your fantasy team. On the other hand, Mark Wood and Ravi Bishnoi have been the star bowlers of LSG and are must picks for this game.
Match prediction: Lucknow Super Giants to win
Lucknow Super Giants are likely to prevail against Sunrisers Hyderabad in this encounter. Irrespective of the notable additions of Aiden Markram to SRH side, LSG are looking a better team on paper and consistency in the T20 format. However, SRH bowlers will look to come up with improved performances to help the team stay in contention for a win.
Toss prediction: LSG to win the toss and bat first
The KL Rahul-based side batted first in their IPL 2023 opener and won the game easily against Delhi Capitals. In the subsequent game, they fell short against CSK, while chasing down the score. It is expected that if LSG wins the toss, they would be willing to bat first and then defend the score.
Man of the match prediction: Quinton de Kock
The experienced batter, Quinton de Kock has been one of the finest openers in the IPL. In particular, the southpaw slammed 508 runs for LSG in 2022, and is primed to be among the runs in 2023 as well. Recently, Quinton hit a 44-ball century in a T20I game against West Indies, and will be confident of his performances. He will be part of the XI in this game, and is a probable candidate for the Player of the match award.
Lucknow Super Giants: 1.75
Sunrisers Hyderabad: 2.12
Although the Lucknow Super Giants lost their last game, they are ahead in terms of odds to win this game. It is due to their experienced batting line-up, who will be boosted by the addition of Quinton de Kock.
