We have entered the second week of the IPL 2023 and now the second round of the tournament has begun. On Friday April 7th, Lucknow Super Giants will be hosting Sunrisers Hyderabad at Ekana Sports City. Lucknow will be playing their third fixture and Hyderabad will be coming to play their second fixture of the tournament.
Lucknow Super Giants witnessed a loss in their second fixture and a win in the first match. The last fixture was a high-scoring game and Lucknow lost the game by 12 runs.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have started their IPL 2023 campaign with a loss against Rajasthan Royals in a high-scoring fixture. The IPL odds are available on all betting sites in India.
LSG started their IPL 2023 campaign with a win against Delhi Capitals in the first game. However, they lost their next fixture against CSK in a close game.
The primary concern for the team management will be the inconsistency of the middle order and the dipping form of skipper KL Rahul. Kyle Mayers and Avesh Khan turned out to be expensive in the last game as well.
Lucknow won’t be making any changes in the playing XI.
Predicted Lineup: Marcus Stoinis, Yash Thakur, Krunal Pandya, Lokesh Rahul, Avesh Khan, Nicholas Pooran, Krishnappa Gowtham, Ravi Bishnoi, Mark Wood, Kyle Mayers, Deepak Hooda
SRH have not seen a good season for a long time and they are going through troubled times consecutively. The start of IPL 2023 has not been good for the team as they lost their first game to RR. It was a disappointing performance overall as the batters turned out to be weak and the bowlers were unable to control the run rate of the opposition.
Skipper Bhuvneshwa rKumarwill be expecting a better performance from his team in the upcoming fixture.
Predicted Lineup: Adil Rashid, Umran Malik, Fazalhaq Farooqi, T Natarajan, Glenn Phillips, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rahul Tripathi, Harry Brook, Mayank Agarwal, Abhishek Sharma
LSG have a good batting depth which was visible in the last fixture. Hyderabad has struggled with their opening partnership and except for Harry Brook, they don’t have a strong name in the middle order. We predict a win for Lucknow Super Giants on Friday.
