RR vs LSG IPL 2022: Is Marcus Stoinis Playing Today?


Marcus Stoinis IPL 2022: It has been one of the favourable starts for the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in this ongoing 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The KL Rahul-led LSG team did lose their opening game in this debut IPL season but then came back strongly with three amazing victories against Chennai Super Kings, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi Capitals to claim the fourth position on the points table. Lucknow Super Giants will now be locking horns against the Rajasthan Royals on 10 April (Sunday) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

RR vs LSG IPL 2022: Is Marcus Stoinis Playing Today?

In a huge update, Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis has already completed his mandatory isolation period and is absolutely available for selection in the Lucknow Super Giants playing 11 for the today IPL match against Rajasthan Royals. Stoinis had arrived late for the Indian Premier League 2022 season due to his involvement in the recently concluded limited-overs series in Pakistan. However, it will be really interesting to see how does the LSG team management fit the big-hitting Aussie all-rounder in the side with Quinton de Kock, Jason Holder, Andrew Tye and Evin Lewis being the four overseas players at this moment.

Lucknow Super Giants picked Marcus Stoinis ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction at a heft price worth INR 9.2 Crore alongside skipper KL Rahul and Ravi Bishnoi. While talking about his overall IPL career, Stoinis has smashed more than 900 runs and also picked up as many as 30 wickets from a total of 56 matches.
