Lucknow Super Giants has gone through a big breakthrough as their skipper had to be ruled out due to a thigh injury. A new captain at this crucial season stage isn’t easy to adapt for LSG. The last three games of LSG showed that they were not up to their mark. So, the task of winning most of the remaining games has become a question for LSG, as every two points hereafter will help them be in the top four.
Meanwhile, getting into the top four has nearly become impossible for Sunrisers Hyderabad as they need to win all the remaining four, and at the same time, they also have to depend on the results of other teams. In this situation, LSG is currently at Hyderabad to take on the home team, SRH.
Time: 3.30 PM IST
Venue : Rajiv Gandhi Stadium, Hyderabad
A good batting wicket. Since it is a day-night game, the team bats second might face difficulties as the dryness can cause spots in the first innings.
What to Expect?
It will be a good competition since both teams’ strength matches all three departments. The team that bats first will have an edge over the other.
Probable Playing XIs
LSG Possible XI:
Nicholas Pooran, Q De Kock( wk), Kyle Mayers, Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya(c) , Ayush Badoni, Krishnappa Gowtham, Ravi Bishnoi, Naveen ul Haq, Marcus Stoinis, Mohsin Khan, Yash Thakur
SRH Possible XI:
Henrich Klaasen(wk), Mayank Agarwal, Harry Brooks, Rahul Tripathi, Abhishek Sharma, Aiden Markram(C), Mayank Dagar, T Natarajan, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, Mayank Markande
Fantasy Picks for the SRH vs LSG Match
Captain : Marcus Stoinis
The last three games weren’t what we expected from Stoinis. Since it is high time for him to step up for his side, the big match player Stoinis will make it big in this game.
Vice captain : Krunal Pandya
The LSG skipper adds value to both the bat and the ball. When things go right, he can win matches for his troops.
Wicketkeepers : Q de Kock, Klaasen
Both the Proteas wicketkeeper knows this condition well. Especially Quinton, who started his A-game right from his first game this season, will make the most of this venue.
Batsmen : Tripathi, Badon
Both the batters have been on and off throughout this tournament. When they have their day, it becomes huge for their side.
All rounders : K Pandya, Stoinis, Markram, Jansen
Since LSG isn’t known for its spin attack, Markram can be more effective for SRH with the bat.
Jansen’s speed on this wicket and pinch-hitting at the end make him the best contender.
Bowlers : T Natarajan, Bishnoi, Markande
Natarajan’s success throughout this tournament is underrated. He has been the energy source for SRH.
The two young wrist spinners make it worth every time they step in to bowl. And this game will also add more fuel to it.
