Lucknow Super Giants ReviewsLucknow Super Giants had made some smart moves in IPL 2023 auctions and picked some best players for this season. Some of their decisions were not much popular as they picked Mohsin Khan who had not played a single match since the previous season of IPL and we don’t think that he will be available for the selection. Our prediction reports are confirming that Jaydev Unadkat will replace in playing eleven of this match. They had picked Nicholas Pooran from IPL 2023 auctions and we are sure that he will prove a game changer in almost each and every match. Nicholas Pooran had done well in the previous editions of this tournament. They can use him as a power hitter in the middle overs and as a bowler if they needed. The top batting order of Lucknow Super Giants is very strong. Quinton de Kock and KL Rahul will open the batting inning. These are the two best openers of T20 cricket and we are sure that they will provide a good opening start and will make things easier for the rest of the batting order.
Manan Vohra and Prerak Mankad are two regular batsmen in the squad of Lucknow Super Giants. Manan Vohra had played 55 matches in IPL with 1073 runs in his account. Lucknow Super Giants had picked some best batting and bowling all-rounders for this tournament. Krunal Pandya, Deepak Hooda, Karan Sharma, Kyle Mayers, and Marcus Stoinis are well-known batting all-rounders of T20 cricket and they have a good record of batting well in the middle overs. We think that Ayush Badoni will have fewer chances to play in this tournament and Krunal Pandya will be part of the playing eleven of most matches. The batting order of Lucknow Super Giants but not much convincing. The bowling unit of Lucknow Super Giants is strong. Mark Wood will be leading the bowling unit with some experienced bowlers like Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, and Jaydev Unadkat. They can also use Krunal Pandya and Marcus Stoinis as bowlers in the middle overs. Yash Thakur, Romario Shepherd, Amit Mishra, Naveen-ul-Haq, Yudhvir Singh Charak, and Mayank Yadav are also part of the bowling squad of this team. Their first match will be a big test of bowling and batting against Delhi Capitals.
Delhi Capitals ReviewsDelhi Capitals had picked some world-class players from IPL auctions for this edition of IPL and we think that their performance will be better than the previous edition. They had faced a big loss as their main player, Rishabh Pant is not available for this tournament but we think that they have some match-winners in their squad and they will not miss their ex-captain. They had appointed David Warner as their new captain in the absence of Rishabh Pant and the management will have to make some changes in the team to get the best balance. We think this is a smart decision as David Warner is an experienced player and he also knows the Indian conditions well. He can make smart decisions as per requirement. Remember that David Warner had been the best batsman in the history of IPL. He will open the batting inning of Delhi Capitals with Prithvi Shaw. Prithvi Shaw had played 63 matches in IPL and had scored 1588 runs with an average of 25.21 and a strike rate of 147.45.
