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

It’s time for match no 26 of Tata IPL 2023 and the first game to be played at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur this season. Table toppers Rajasthan Royals are hosting Lucknow Super Giants in their own den, but the visitors have made a surprising move by omitting their leading wicket-taker Mark Wood.

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

Mark Wood the leading wicket-taker for Lucknow Super Giants this season isn’t included in the playing 11. Wood has been replaced by Afghanistan pacer Naveen-ul-haq who is making his IPL debut tonight. There is no clarity over why Wood isn’t included in the eleven as skipper KL Rahul didn’t disclose anything related to the English paceman at the toss. Here’s what KL Rahul said at the toss,

“We would have bowled first as well. First game here. It’s important that we start well and put a good total on the board. We’ve executed well in most games. We have had clarity with bat on ball. All three skills have been good. We are quite settled. We’ll try to keep that left-hand, right-hand combination going. Quinny still misses out. He’ll just have to wait for some more time. I have enjoyed opening with Quinton.

Mark Wood IPL 2023 Price

Mark Wood, the English pacer, was in high demand in the Indian Premier League 2022 auction and had a significant price tag attached to his name. Lucknow Super Giants acquired him for INR 7.50 Crore in the 2022 IPL auction, which is indicative of his worth as a top-tier player. Despite being unable to participate in the 2022 season due to injury, he was retained by LSG for the 2023 IPL season at the same price.
