In a crucial news development, the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) have not included pace bowler Yash Thakur in their starting XI for their 14th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) taking place at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The Lucknow Super Giants ended up securing a brilliant 5-run win over Mumbai Indians during their last match of the ongoing Indian Premier League 2023 season. However, LSG still need to win this match against KKR to qualify for the IPL 2023 playoffs.
KKR vs LSG IPL 2023: Why is Yash Thakur Not Playing Today’s IPL Match?
During the toss, it was noted that Yash Thakur is not part of the starting LSG playing 11 for today’s KKR vs LSG match. However, he is absolutely fit and included in the substitute members list out of which one can come in as an Impact Player at any moment in the game. During the last victory against Mumbai Indians, Thakur ended up taking as many as two crucial wickets that included the prized scalp of Suryakumar Yadav. Yash has performed impressively with the ball in the ongoing IPL 2023 season having picked up 8 wickets from 7 matches at an economy rate of 9.02. Thus, he is very much likely to be drafted as the Impact Player by LSG in the second innings.
“We would’ve also fielded first. At the end of the day, you have to play good cricket. We know where we stand in the table. Our destiny is in our hands. Focus is on playing good cricket. We defended really well in previous game. Eventually what matters is how we come today, put a total on the board and defend it. Couple of changes – instead of Hooda, we have Karan. And Gowtham comes in for Swapnil,” said Lucknow Super Giants captain Krunal Pandya during the toss.
