Lucknow Super Giants vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, 10th Match
Kyle Mayers was part of Lucknow Super Giants’ team in IPL 2022 but did not get a game. Had Quinton de Kock not been on national duty, Mayers wouldn’t have started this season either. But now he has two swashbuckling half- centuries in two games to give Super Giants a happy headache.
With de Kock available and having smashed a 44- ball 100 against West Indies recently, do Super Giants drop Mayers? That will besacrilegious.However, who sacrifices the opening slot? Plus, who misses out in that case- Nicholas Pooran or Marcus Stoinis? Pooran made useful contributions in both games, If they play both.
After starting their campaign with a win at home, Super Giants went down to Chennai Super Kings in their next match. Now that they’re back in Lucknow, can they return to winning ways?
Sunrisers Hyderabad too are coming off a defeat; they were thrashed by Rajasthan Royals in their opening game. But there are plenty of reasons for Sunrisers to put that hammering behind them, the biggest being the availability of their South African players.
For the Royals game, they were without their captain Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen and Marco Jansen. Now that the trio has joined the squad, they’ve all eight overseas players to pick from. And like de Kock, all three carry excellent form with them
Both teams get reinforcements with their South African players who were part of the Netherlands series available now. Apart from Super Giants’ Mohsin Khan, there are no known injury concerns.
Toss and Impact Player strategy
With de Kock a shoo-in, Stoinis may have to miss out. When it comes to Impact Player, Super Giants could start with Ayush Badoni if they are batting first. Jaydev Unadkat or Yash Thakur could replace him in the second innings. Vice versa if they are bowling first.
Given Klaasen’s recent form, and that he is a regular wicketkeeper, he could replace Glenn Phillips in the starting XI. Jansen may have to wait for his turn, though.
Abdul Samad and Kartik Tyagi could be Sunrisers’ Impact Player pair.
