LSG dominated PBKS right from the word go and secured a thumping 56 runs victory. After a victory of that sorts, LSH were expected to remain unchanged, which means the South African wicket-keeper batter Quinton de Kock once again misses out.
LSG vs RCB: Why is Quinton de Kock Not Playing Today’s IPL Match? Who is LSG Wicket Keeper?
During the toss of the LSG vs RCB match no 43, it was revealed that Quinton de Kock, the overseas wicket-keeper batsman for Lucknow Super Giants, has not been included in their playing 11. De Kock has not played a single match in the current Indian Premier League 2023 season as he joined the LSG team late due to national duty. Despite his quality as a player, Kyle Mayers’ outstanding form for the LSG team this year has prevented de Kock from playing. Mayers has scored 297 runs in 8 games including 4 fifties with a remarkable strike-rate of over 160. He has been a brute force at the top for LSG and with form by his side, Quinton de Kock may have to warm the bench in a few more games.
