Why is Mark Wood not playing LSG vs RCB IPL 2023 match

The Lucknow Super Giants have left out their top overseas pacer Mark Wood once again in their 9th match of the IPL 2023 season against the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow. The Super Giants have so far played 8 matches having registered 5 wins and 3 losses.

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

KL Rahul, the captain of Lucknow Super Giants disclosed at the toss that Mark Wood will once again not be part of the starting eleven for their match against the Royal Challengers. Wood was among the substitutes in the last few games to play as an Impact Player but his services were not needed. Tonight, he is not even among the substitutes which means Wood won’t be a part of the ongoing LSG vs RCB match at any stage. This is interesting news as Wood has been in excellent form in the ongoing IPL 2023 season, having taken 11 wickets in just 4 games, which includes a remarkable five-wicket haul in LSG’s opening game against DC. Here’s what KL Rahul said at the toss,

“It is just going to be hardwork on this pitch for both teams. Just one change. Avesh Khan misses out and K Gowtham comes in. Having played here twice, we know that spin will be used more than pace here. Just want to hold our composure during crunch moments. The only thing we spoke about is to not come with a fixed mindset and we gotta bowl well and restrict them to a low total.
