The new franchise Lucknow Super Giants had a great season of IPL as they won 8 games out of 13 they played. KL Rahul’s men played some amazing cricket and thus their fans think they deserve a place in the playoffs. It will be great to see which three teams after Gujarat Titans will make it to the playoffs of IPL 2022 as Delhi Capitals, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Lucknow Super Giants, Rajasthan Royals, Kolkata Knight Riders, and Sunrisers Hyderabad, all are in the race.
Lucknow Super Giants have currently occupied the third position in the points table with 16 points in 13 games they played this season. They lost their last two matches which didn’t let them have the ‘Q’ along with their name (LSG) in the points table. Hardik Pandya‘s Gujarat has already qualified and has also confirmed its place in Qualifier 1.
Lucknow Super Giants have so many match-winners this season and they have got a good squad which can help them win their first IPL title. But it is necessary to have a good team combination to achieve this milestone.
Predicted Lucknow Super Giants winning combination in playoffs:
The skipper of LSG is one of the best batsmen in IPL 2022. As he has not only scored runs this season but has been consistently performing well for the team. The captain of the team has scored 469 runs in 13 games this season with an average of 42.63. So, KL Rahul in the starting XI is a must for Lucknow Super Giants.
The middle-order batter Deepak Hooda is playing very good this season as he has also named himself in the list of top 10 batters with the most runs this season. He has been amazing with the bat and has also played some crucial innings to help LSG win some games this season. As compared to previous seasons, Deepak Hooda looked more comfortable with the bat and thus can be crucial for LSG in playoffs.
Chameera is also one of the important players for LSG this season. The Sri Lankan pacer has taken some crucial wickets in the powerplay for LSG. He has taken 9 wickets in IPL 2022 so far with an economy of 8.25. Chameera proved to be a great signing by LSG as he makes the team’s bowling combination more strong.
The Indian uncapped pacer is one of the best bowlers for Lucknow Super Giants this season. Since he got into the team, he has been consistently performing. In the 8 matches he played this season, he took 10 wickets with an amazing economy of 6.08. Mohsin Khan also has a 4-wicket haul to his name which came in his debut season of IPL.
Former Delhi Capitals’ men have taken 17 wickets in 12 matches he played this season with a wonderful economy of 7.87. However, he has been expensive sometimes but still gives some important breakthroughs which help LSG hold the game. Avesh Khan is also one of the X-factor players for LSG this season and thus he will be crucial for the playoffs as well.
