New Delhi.Lucknow Super Giants had made their debut in the world’s biggest cricket league last season and Lucknow showed their strength in the debut season. KL Rahul-led Lucknow reached the playoffs. However, in the Eliminator match, Royal Challengers Bangalore broke his dream of becoming the champion in the very first season. The Lucknow team is ready to enter the field with the determination to continue that journey which got stuck in the eliminator last season. Whatever was left unturned in the debut season, he has also made up his mind to remove it in this season.
Lucknow is not one of those who sit brightly for one season, this intention was expressed by the franchise itself when it spent Rs 16 crore on one player in the auction. Nicholas Pooran was bought by the franchise for a hefty sum and the Lucknow team has also become very powerful with the arrival of the Caribbean storm. Lucknow bought 10 players in the auction. Apart from Puran, one of the most successful bowlers of IPL, leg-spinner Amit Mishra was also bought.

Lucknow’s biggest strength is captain KL Rahul himself, who came into form before IPL and hit an unbeaten fifty in Mumbai ODI against Australia, apart from Rahul, explosive opener Quinton Dickock is also there. The opening department of Lucknow is very strong. There are batsmen like Deepak Hooda and Puran in the middle order. All-rounders are the biggest strength of Lucknow and they have players like Krunal Pandya, Marcus Stoinis, Krishnappa Gautam, Kyle Mayers.
Weakness of Lucknow
Lucknow’s top order is strong and all-rounders are its strength, but the weakness is also the batsmen. Deepak Hooda and KL Rahul are the top Indian batsmen from Lucknow, but Manan Vohra, Gautam, Ayush are still not able to gain confidence in terms of batting. After releasing Manish Pandey, now it has to be seen with what balance the team will land at number 3 this season. In such a situation, some experiments can also be seen in this position. Although they have Deepak Hooda, who specializes in batting at any number. A weakness of Lucknow can also prove to be its star players. Fast bowler Mark Wood is injury prone. Doubts remain on his participation in the entire season. In such a situation, the star players remained fit throughout the IPL season, this is also the biggest concern for the team.
