The new IPL franchise Lucknow Supergiants started the season with a loss to Gujarat, but they bounced back with a win against the defending champions Chennai Super Kings in their following encounter. On Monday, the team captained by Lokesh Rahul will face Sunrisers Hyderabad on the field. The team’s strength is batting, as seen by the team’s achievement of a 211-run target in the most recent match.
Rahul and Dekock make a strong starting pair.
Quinton de Kock and captain Lokesh Rahul make an excellent opening partnership. With innings of 40 and 61 runs, the pair put on a 99-run partnership for the first wicket against Chennai. Evin Lewis, a batsman for the Windies, contributed significantly to the victory by scoring Atishi 55 from 23 balls. With Deepak Hooda in the middle, the team boasts a powerful middle order. With his ability to hit sixes, young hitter Aayush Badoni has become the centre of attention. He wants to keep up his fantastic performance.
The Manish family is a source of anxiety.
Lucknow is concerned about Manish Pandey’s poor form. Jason Holder and Krunal Pandya are all-rounders for the club. Avesh Khan, Sri Lankan Dushmantha Chameera, Andrew Tye, and rookie spinner Ravi Bishnoi make up the bowling attack, but they’ll have to keep the runs down.

Hyderabad’s bowlers must keep an eye on the scoreboard.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other side, were defeated by Rajasthan by 61 runs in the first encounter. The team’s bowlers will have to keep the runs under control. With the exception of Bhuvneshwar Kumar (1/29), Romario Shepherd, Umran Malik, T Natarajan, and Washington Sundar all had a lot of runs in their first match.
Captain Kane Williamson, Rahul Tripathi, Nicholas Pooran, Abdul Samad, and Abhishek Sharma are responsible for the team’s batting. Edin Markram seemed to be in good form after scoring an unbroken 57 in the previous game. For their first win of the season, Hyderabad will need to excel in all areas.
