During the toss, it was revealed that South Africa’s senior wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock is once again excluded from the LSG Playing 11 for today’s LSG vs GT IPL 2023 match. Incidentally, the southpaw opener has not played a single game in IPL 2023 season so far after having joined the Lucknow Super Giants camp late due to national duty. On the other hand, in de Kock’s absence, explosive opener Kyle Mayers has cemented his position at the top of the order for the Lucknow Super Giants in this T20 tournament so far as he has smashed a total of 219 runs from 6 games that includes as many as three half-centuries at an amazing strike-rate of over 154.

“I would have batted but not worried about it. We will play good cricket. We bowled against SRH as well, we would like to restrict them to a good target and chase it down. No change, Yudhvir misses out. Amit Mishra comes in. Trusted the 12-13 players, have had a few injuries, each game someone has put their hand up and done the job for the team. We are gelling together well,” said Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul during the toss.
