IPL 2022: Lucknow Super Giants Team Profile

Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) is a cricket team founded in 2021 and based in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. LSG belongs to the RPSG Group which previously owned the Rising Pune Supergiant franchise between 2016 and 2017. This is one of two new teams from the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. 

Lucknow Super Giants is led by KL Rahul this season. Previously, KL Rahul played in the Punjab Kings before the 2022 IPL auction. Lucknow Super Giants made a challenging squad by including KL Rahul, Ravi Bishnoi, Marcus Stoinis, and taking former Australian fast bowler, Andy Bichel as their coach.

In IPL Auction 2022, Lucknow Super Giants spend Rs. 17 crores to choose KL Rahul as team captain. KL Rahul has been the most prolific run-getter in the last three IPL seasons. 

Becoming the Captain of Lucknow Super Giants is a fresh start for KL Rahul who has had good hitting and anchoring over the past few IPL seasons. In IPL 2022, we will see how KL Rahul will work together with the team and lead the team to success.

Lucknow Super Giants (LSG): Strengths and Weaknesses
Lucknow Super Giants are able to get a bowler from almost which will provide a good opportunity to control the opposing team's flow during the game. 

Lucknow has Manish Pandey, a reliable and experienced top-order player. Lucknow also scored well in the versatile section with Stoini, Jason Holder and Kyle Mayers for foreign players. 

For domestic players, LSG was strengthened by Deepak Hooda, K Gowtham and Krunal Pandya. Reinforced by KL Rahul and goalkeeper-beater Quinton de-Kock, LSG had a strong opening combination. The team also got West Indies big-hitter Evin Lewis as a backup option.

The lack of batsmen who last longer on the field can cause a bit of trouble for this team. Apart from KL Rahul and Quinton de-Kock, this new team lacks experienced batsmen to play at numbers 3 and 4.
