Lucknow Super Giants got off to a good start in the tournament with a convincing win in their first match, but their loss in the second match will make the management wonder where they went wrong. They were defeated by CSK by 12 runs while chasing a massive total of 218. The bowlers couldn’t do much because the ball was being thrown all over the place. Ravi Bishnoi was the best bowler, taking three wickets in four overs while conceding only 28 runs. Mark Wood also took three wickets.
Kyle Mayers was their top run scorer again while chasing, with 53 runs off 22 balls. Nicholas Pooran smashed 32 runs off 18 balls, but it was too little, too late, as LSG fell 12 runs short of the target.

Players to watch out for:
Mayers, who is vying for the orange cap, has scored over 120 runs in his first two games for LSG this season. Kyle will be expected to provide the team with a quality start after demonstrating how dominant he can be with his hard-hitting.
The Englishman has taken 8 wickets in just two games, and his raw pace is undoubtedly assisting him in clinching regular wickets on Indian pitches. Wood, however, can be used with the new ball alongside Avesh Khan in Match 10.
With a pitch that favors spin bowlers, Bishnoi will be expected to improve on his three-wicket performance in Match 6.
Possible Playing XI:
Avesh Khan, Nicholas Pooran, Kyle Mayers, KL Rahul, Ayush Badoni, Marcus Stoinis, Ravi Bishnoi, Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, Mark Wood, Jaydev Unadkat
Sunrisers Hyderabad had a disastrous start to the season, losing to RR by 72 runs in their first match. They gave up 203 runs in the first two innings. Fazalhaq Farooqi and T Natarajan were the bowlers’ picks, each taking two wickets. However, that was insufficient because the Sunrisers were set a massive total of 204 runs to chase.
The Sunrisers’ batting performance was largely negative, as they managed only 131 runs in their 20 overs. Mayank Agarwal (27) and Abdul Samad (32) were the only batsmen to get starts, but both failed to convert.

Players to watch out for:
Having demonstrated his form and A-Game for South Africa on the international stage, Markram will be expected to be among the highest run-getters in this edition.
The Afghanistan International star took two wickets in the previous game, but he also allowed 41 runs in his four overs.
He comes into Match 10 with two wickets and will be looking to take wickets in the death overs as well.

Lucknow Super Giants vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Top Team Batsmen
We recommend that you select Quinton De Kock, Kyle Mayers, and Deepak Hooda as the top three LSG batsmen. Not only can all three batsmen play spin well, but because they will bat at the top of the order, they will have more time to settle in on a difficult wicket.
Mayank Agarwal, Aiden Markram, and Harry Brook are our recommendations. After failing to establish himself in the previous game, the latter Englishman is likely to be given a chance higher up the order, whereas Markram will play the role of an orchestrator in the middle overs.
Lucknow Super Giants vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Top Team Bowlers
LSG’s bowling department will have three obvious choices: Mark Wood, Avesh Khan, and Ravi Bishnoi. While Wood holds the Reading purple cap, Avesh has also taken three wickets in the competition. Bishnoi, on the other hand, will enter Match 10 with three wickets.
We recommend T Natarajan, Fazalhaq Farooqi, and Washington Sundar from the Sunrisers Hyderabad bowling attack. While the former two took wickets in the team’s previous game against RR, Sundar’s slow bowling can assist the Sunrisers in the middle overs in Lucknow.
Lucknow Super Giants vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Head to Head
