Lucknow Super Giants won both their games against Kolkata Knight Riders in their debut IPL season in 2022. LSG was led by KL Rahul as the management drafted the Indian cricketer to lead the side. KKR also had a new captain in Shreyas Iyer. However, both teams had polar opposite campaigns.
Kolkata Knight Riders had a forgetful IPL 2022 campaign with multiple issues to sort out ahead of the IPL 2023 season. They need to sort out their opening combination, find a good Indian middle-order batsman and an Indian spinner to support Sunil Narine. In case they are unable to find an Indian more spin, they need to seek for an overseas spinner. In this article, we take a look at three LSG players KKR can target ahead of IPL 2023.
3 Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) Players That Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Can Target In IPL 2023
Quinton de Kock
De Kock ended as the third-highest run-getter in IPL 2022 with 508 runs from 15 games. The southpaw incidentally scored the highest individual score of IPL 2022 against KKR. With KKR struggling to get runs at the top, De Kock’s inclusion can certainly solve this long-standing problem for the side. They will also get a good quality wicketkeeper in him as well.
