Why is Quinton de Kock not playing LSG vs MI IPL 2023 match?

The massive breaking news development coming from the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) camp is that they have dropped wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock for the important Eliminator of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against the Mumbai Indians (MI) taking place at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The Lucknow Super Giants ended up securing an exciting 1-run victory over Kolkata Knight Riders during their last league match of IPL 2023 to book a spot in the playoffs.

LSG vs MI IPL 2023: Why is Quinton de Kock Not Playing Today’s Match IPL? Who is LSG Wicket Keeper?

After losing the toss and being asked to bowl first, the Lucknow Super Giants captain Krunal Pandya noted that Quinton de Kock is not part of the LSG playing 11 for this LSG vs MI match on Wednesday. Incidentally, he is not even part of the substitute members list out of which one can be used as an Impact Player at any moment in the game. The South African wicket-keeper batsman had to warm the bench during the initial phase of the T20 competition due to stunning form shown by Kyle Mayers for LSG at the top. However, after getting his opportunity, Quinton smashed a total of 143 runs in the last 4 matches at a strike-rate of over 140 that includes a fifty as well. His exclusion from the side looks really surprising and Nicholas Pooran will be the LSG wicket keeper in this match.

“It has been an up and down season, but we have fought and never gave up. We have match winners, it’s a team effort from us, that’s a really good sign. We have covered all bases, just need to execute our skills. We would have batted first as well, but now we have to play some good cricket,” said Lucknow Super Giants captain Krunal Pandya during the toss.
