The 10th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 will be played between Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). It will be played at the Ekana Sports City in Lucknow and is scheduled to begin from 7:30 PM (IST).
With 2 points from 2 games so far, Lucknow Super Giants are presently sitting in the 5th position in the points table. Hyderabad were blown away by Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the previous game and would be hoping to turn the tide around in this game.
The South African players will be available for selection from this team as they returned back to India after their national team duties. Aiden Markram will take over the captaincy duties from Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the Hyderabad team.
In this article, we take a look at 3 players whom you should make vice-captain in today’s IPL 2023 game:
1. Kyle Mayers (Lucknow Super Giants)
When Mayers was drafted in the playing XI as a replacement of Quinton De Kock, no one would have thought that he would leave such a lasting impact. The West Indian hard-hitting batter has carved his own niche in the first 2 games for Lucknow Super Giants.
Kyle Mayers has notched up 126 runs in 2 games and has a scintillating average of 63.00 in the tournament so far. He is a good option for vice-captain in your fantasy team.
2. Umran Malik (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
Speedster Umran Malik should likely be made a vice-captain in your fantasy team but if your risk appetite is big, then you can make him your captain as well. Umran Malik breathed fire with the ball against RR and was quite quick.
Umran Malik had taken the wicket of southpaw Devdutt Padikkal in the previous game of Sunrisers Hyderabad. It was an unplayable delivery and skittled through the stumps of the young batter.
3. Mark Wood (Lucknow Super Giants)
The highest wicket-taker in IPL 2023 so far, Mark Wood has been the pivot around which the whole LSG bowling department has been revolving around. His raw pace and good game sense is making him an exceptional choice in a team.
So far in IPL 2023, the English pacer has bagged 8 wickets and has a good economy of 7.88. He took a 5-fer in the opening game of LSG against Delhi Capitals (DC) and has been quite impressive in the tournament so far.
