But after this, two teams RCB and Mumbai Indians (RCB vs MI) have suffered a big blow. While RCB is at number 9, Mumbai team is at the last position at number 10.

Interestingly all the teams have tried to balance themselves this time, in which the name of Lucknow Super Giants is also included. Lucknow Super Giants have also added 6 players in the mini auction, so the team captained by KL Rahul looks very strong on paper. The special thing is that the team has entered the IPL only twice and has reached the playoffs both times, so this time the team would like to advance from the playoffs.

6 players for 12.20 crores

Lucknow Supergiants have bought 6 players for Rs 12.20 crore in the IPL mini auction, which includes the names of Shivam Mavi, David Willey, M Siddharth, Ashton Turner, Arshin Kulkarni and Arshad Khan. With the arrival of Mavi, the team’s batting lineup now looks a little stronger, while two foreign players David Willey and Ashton Turner can also be seen playing important roles in the team.

Strength of LSG

The batting of Lucknow Supergiants seems to be the strongest this season, from captain KL Rahul to Nicholas Pooran, Stoinis, excellent batsmen provide strength from the top order to the middle order of the team, while the arrival of Mavi can also provide the finishing touch.. Apart from this, the spin combination of the team from Krunal Pandya to Amit Mishra is also excellent, which makes the team look strong in bowling also.

The Achilles Heel

On the weakness aspect, there is a clear lack of Indian pacers in the team, in such a situation there can be weakness in bowling, because Lucknow has made many backup plans in batting, but in bowling it is visible. This time the staff will also change along with the team. Gautam Gambhir, the mentor of the last two seasons, will not be with the team this time. In such a situation, Lucknow can be seen in the field with new planning.

Full team of LSG in 2024

KL Rahul (Captain) Quinton de Kock, Kyle Mayers, Marcus Stoinis, Deepak Hooda, Ravi Bishnoi, Naveen Ul Haq, Krunal Pandya, Nicholas Pooran, Ayush Badoni, Yudhveer Singh, Prerak Mankad, Yash Thakur, Amit Mishra, Mark Wood, Mayank Yadav, Mohsin Khan, David Willey, Ashton Turner, Arshin Kulkarni, Arshad Khan, Shivam Mavi and M Siddharth.
