Ind T20 League 2023 

Match 10: LUC vs HYD



The 10th Match of the Indian T20 League will be played between KL Rahul-led Lucknow versus Aiden Markram-led Hyderabad, who will be making his captaincy debut for the orange army on Friday, 06th April 2023 in Ekana Sports City, Lucknow at 07:30 PM IST. LUC and HYD both will be heading for this match after facing a defeat in their last encounter.

KL-Rahul-led Lucknow lost their last match to MS-dhoni-led Chennai in a nail-biting contest by 12 runs at Chepauk. The side still has 2 points after winning the first match against Delhi by 50 runs. LUC is currently sitting 4th in the table after one win and one loss with a net rate run of +0.950. Lucknow will be eyeing to win this match to further strengthen their spot in the top four.

Hyderabad continued their disastrous campaign from the previous season as the Orange army guided by Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the absence of new skipper Aiden Markram, HYD lost by a huge margin in their first game of the season. A 72-run loss against Rajasthan will be very difficult to forget however HYD will look to put that result in the past to get their first win of the season under the new skipper.

Lucknow started the tournament well with a convincing win in their first match but their loss in the second match will make the management think about where it went wrong. LUC lost to CHE by 12 runs while chasing a massive total of 218 runs. The bowlers could not do much as the ball was being dispatched all over the park.

The leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi was the best bowler as he picked up 3 wickets in his 4 overs while conceding only 28 runs. English gun bowler Mark Wood too picked up 3 wickets by leaking 49 runs in his 4 overs. While chasing Windies' six-hitter Kyle Mayers was once again their top run scorer with 53 runs off 22 balls that included 8 fours and 2 sixes in his blistering knock. Another Windies left-handed batter Nicholas Pooran smashed 32 runs off 18 balls that included 2 fours and  3 sixes in his innings which were too little too late as LUC failed to reach the target and fell short by 12 runs.

HYD has had a horrid start to the season, losing to RAJ by 72 runs in their opening fixture. HYD conceded 203 runs in the first innings. For Hyderabad, Fazalhaq Farooqi and T Natarajan were the picks of the bowlers as they claimed 2 wickets each while giving 41 and 23 runs in bowling. However, that was not enough as the HYD set a huge total of 204 runs to chase.

There were hardly any positives for the Orange Army from the batting department as HYD could manage only 131 runs in their 20 overs. The opening batter Mayank Agarwal (27) and impact player Abdul Samad (32) were the only batters who got starts however they too could not convert them.

Match Prediction

It's an important contest for both sides as both will be eyeing a victory in this match to get 2 points in the table. LUC vs HYD will be going to be a close contest match however due to current form and squad strength we predict that Lucknow to beat Hyderabad in this match.


Top Fantasy Picks

Quinton de Kock has joined the squad but it would be difficult for Lucknow to drop Windies batter Kyle Mayers who has shown sensational batting display in the first two matches for the side. But we expect De Kock to show his class with the bat if he gets the chance in this match

Mark Wood would be in sublime form after a 5-fer in his first match for Lucknow in IND T20 League, English gun bowler took a 3-fer to hold the purple cap. However, the Englishman bowled an expensive spell, giving away 49 runs in 4 overs in the last match against Chennai. The seamer would aim for more tight line and length against Hyderabad batters.

Windies' left-handed destructive batter Kyle Mayers is coming off an excellent 73 off 38 balls against DEL. Kyle Mayers was once again their top run scorer with 53 runs off 22 balls that included 8 fours and 2 sixes in his blistering knock against Chennai for Lucknow. He will play a crucial role in today's match.

The 32-year-old batter Rahul Tripathi was the second-highest run-scorer for HYD last season and scored 413 runs in 14 games at an average of 37.54 and a strike rate of 158.23, including three half-centuries. Tripathi won the Player of the Match award in two of the four games SRH won last year.
