LSG in IPL 2023: Team news

Lucknow is set to start without Mohsin Khan, the left-arm seamer who finished as the second-most economical bowler of the 2022 IPL, after Sunil Narine of the Kolkata Knight Riders. He has not played competitive cricket since a shoulder surgery last year, though he has joined the Lucknow camp.

The in-form Quinton de Kock will not be available until April 3 either: he will feature in the ODIs against the Netherlands. As with 2022, the LSG will bank on their enviable assortment of all-rounders.
