However, Rahul did not mention the exact reason for the leggie’s exclusion and it looks like a strategical change. Bishnoi has bowling well in patches this Indian Premier League 2022 season.

“We would have wanted to bowl first. Not sure about how this wicket will play, so want to give our bowlers the best shot at using it first. I do think chasing is the perfect game for us, but we have won well after batting first as well. We are playing a top team, a competitive unit, so we’ll have to hold our pressure, assess the conditions quickly and get our tactics and strategies right. One change for us – Ravi Bishnoi misses out, Karan Sharma replaces him,” said Lucknow Super Giants skipper KL Rahul during the toss.
