LSG vs MI: Why is Yash Thakur Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match? 

During the toss, it was mentioned that Yash Thakur is not included in the starting LSG playing 11 for today’s LSG vs MI match. Interestingly, he is absolutely fit and part of the five substitute members out of which one can come in as an Impact Player at any moment in the match. Thakur has performed really well in patches for the Lucknow Super Giants in this IPL 2023 season so far having taken a total of 6 wickets from as many matches at an economy rate of less than 9 that also includes an impressive four-wicket haul. Thus, Yash is very much likely to be drafted as the Impact Player by LSG in the second innings.

“It’s a good toss to lose. We would have batted first as well. Every game in IPL is important and there are quite a few changes. Naveen and Deepak Hooda in, Kyle Mayers and Avesh Khan out. There is one more change as well, can’t quite remember it. Everyone is fit and raring to go,” said Lucknow Super Giants captain Krunal Pandya.
