LSG vs SRH Match Prediction
Lucknow Super Giants and Sunrisers Hyderabad are set to face off in Match 10 of the Indian Premier League 2023 at Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow. Both teams are aiming to bounce back after recent defeats.
Lucknow Super Giants put up a strong fight in a high-scoring match against Chennai Super Kings but ultimately lost by 12 runs. They had earlier secured an impressive victory over Delhi Capitals. South African wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock will join the team after the completion of his country’s ODI series against the Netherlands. Meanwhile, Sunrisers Hyderabad will welcome back skipper Aiden Markram, wicketkeeper Heinrich Klaasen and fast bowler Marco Jansen to their squad.
Kyle Mayers, who has opened the innings with KL Rahul in the absence of Quinton de Kock, has been in sensational form for Lucknow Super Giants, scoring two half-centuries in as many matches. His fellow West Indian, Nicholas Pooran, has also displayed glimpses of his abilities in the tournament so far.
Lucknow Super Giants have won one out of their two matches, defeating Delhi Capitals before losing to Chennai Super Kings. They will be looking to bounce back and improve their performance in the upcoming match. It is likely that Quinton de Kock will replace Marcus Stoinis in the playing XI, while Kyle Mayers is expected to retain his place.
Sunrisers Hyderabad suffered a tough loss in their opening match against Rajasthan Royals, conceding 203 runs and only managing to score 131/8 in reply. However, they will be boosted by the return of Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, and Marco Jansen to their squad. All three players have been in solid form and are expected to make an impact in the upcoming match. It is likely that Harry Brook, Glenn Phillips, and Fazalhaq Farooqi will make way for the returning trio.
LSG vs SRH Pitch Report
The Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow has pitches with prominent black soil, which are likely to offer good bounce and keep the pacers in the game. Spinners can also make an impact, as demonstrated by one of the previous games where a spinner picked up wickets. Batsmen will need to be patient and spend some time at the crease before playing aggressive shots. In previous matches at this venue, teams batting first have generally fared better.
Although Lucknow Super Giants scored a mammoth 193 in their last match here, a total in the 170s should be a competitive score on this pitch based on historical averages. Hence, winning the toss and batting first could be advantageous.
