Why is Mark Wood not playing LSG vs MI IPL 2023 match?

In a crucial news development, the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will miss the services of their overseas fast bowler Mark Wood in the Eliminator encounter of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against the Mumbai Indians (MI) being hosted at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Things have worked out sensationally well for the Lucknow Super Giants recently in the 16th edition of the IPL as they defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad, Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders in three successive matches to qualify for the IPL 2023 playoffs.

LSG vs MI: Why is Mark Wood Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match? 

Unfortunately, right-arm pace bowler Mark Wood will not be part of the LSG playing 11 for today’s LSG vs MI match. He has already left the LSG camp to join the England Test team for a one-off Test match against Ireland and will not be available for selection in IPL 2023 playoffs. Contrastingly, Wood exhibited exceptional performance as a bowler during the initial phase of IPL 2023 while representing the Lucknow Super Giants. He impressively claimed 11 wickets in just 4 matches, which notably featured a remarkable five-wicket haul. It still remains a big suspense as to why the England fast bowler was not played by the Lucknow Super Giants in the second half of the T20 tournament where they preferred to play Afghanistan pacer Naveen-ul-Haq.
