Lucknow Supergiants have added 10 more players in the mini-auction before IPL 2023. However, apart from Nicholas Pooran, no big name has been associated with this team. In such a situation, this team has not changed much from before. Still, players like Captain Rahul and Quinton Dickock will be responsible for winning the team.
Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), In their first season, Lucknow Super Giants made it to the playoffs, but lost the Eliminator to RCB. However, before the mini-auction, the team released Jason Holder, surprising everyone. Holder was bought by Lucknow for Rs 8.75 crore. It was believed that Lucknow would now buy an all-rounder in place of Holder, but this did not happen. This team bet on Nicholas Pooran and joined him by giving 16 crores.

As far as bowling is concerned, Englands stormy bowler Mark Wood can prove to be a trump card for this team this season. If he is available to play that season, then the responsibility of the bowling attack will be on him. Avesh Khan and Mohsin Khan will be seen supporting him. In fast bowling, the options of Jaydev Unadkat and Sams are also available with the team. On the other hand, in the spin department, of course, the team has Amit Mishra but Ravi Bishnoi is sure to get preference. If something happens to him, then there can be a possibility of Amit Mishra playing.
