The KL Rahul-led LSG team have won 3 out of their four games in IPL 2023 so far.

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

After losing the toss and being asked to bat first, the Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul mentioned that Quinton de Kock is not included in the LSG playing 11 for this LSG vs PBKS IPL 2023 match. The Lucknow Super Giants team management have once again shown faith in West Indies explosive batsman Kyle Mayers who smashed two blazing half-centuries in his first two matches of IPL 2023. On the other hand, Quinton arrived late as he was playing for the South Africa team in the ODI series against Netherlands. It still remains to be seen when will the Lucknow Super Giants opt to bring back de Kock in the side. In his absence, Nicholas Pooran has been donning the wicket-keeper duties.

” First game on this strip, anything would have worked. It is exciting to challenge ourselves on different conditions. It is our first season here, so each game we’ll assess and modify. Every game we make a few changes, settle on a 12-13 and take a call depending on the game. Each game we have turned up and we have been challenged every time, but players have found answers. Everyone is enjoying the game and there is a good vibe around, really happy with the support we have got out here,” said Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul during the toss.
