One of the two newly introduced teams in IPL 2022, Lucknow Super Giants, had a brilliant first season. They ended their IPL run by fixing their spot at the third position but unfortunately lost their opportunity to qualify for the final game.
With 9 wins and 5 losses in the tournament, Lucknow Super Giants displayed massive dominance in the overall tournament. If you are good with predictions and know your game – you can find some great Indian Bookmakers here.
3 players that Lucknow Super Giants might target through the auctions
As the preparations for the new season of the Indian Premier League have started, Lucknow will be all set to display better performance. To do that, they will have to fill some gaps and they will be eyeing some players during the upcoming IPL auctions.
1) Nicholas Pooran
Sunrisers Hyderabad has released their prime batsman Nicholas Pooran because of a below-average performance during the last season. Pooran has still not shown his best game in the IPL tournament and his talent remains unexplored.
Lucknow Super Giants needs a strong name in their middle order to give a push to the overall score and they can go for Nicholas Pooran. His strike in the last year’s tournament was 144.33 and his credentials are still strong for a T20 cricket league.
2) Kane Williamson
Another Hyderabad batsman and one of the greatest batsmen New Zealand has ever produced, Kane Williamson can also be targeted by the franchise. He is known for his antics in the opening lineup and recently Kane has regained his form as a quick run scorer.
Lucknow can use him as an opening batter after KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock. Kane Williamson’s presence will take the pressure off KL Rahul and de Kock and they can play their own game.
3) Vaibhav Arora
Lucknow only has Avesh Khan and Mohsin Khan in their pace department. They desperately need a pace bowler to support these two bowlers during the middle overs of the game. It was shocking to see Punjab releasing Vaibhav Arora ahead of IPL auctions. He is a genuine wicket-taker and a good swing specialist.
Vaibhav can be useful for the team with the old ball as well because he carries good experience bowling in the death overs. In 5 matches in IPL 2022, Vaibhav picked up 3 wickets at an economy of 9.19. He should be given more chances to prove his talent and Lucknow can do that very well.
