Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will battle against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in the 58th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Saturday (May 13). Notably, SRH and LSG have met each other once in the IPL 2023, where Lucknow emerged victorious by five wickets in a low-scoring affair.
Speaking of the previous matches of the two teams, SRH defeated Rajasthan Royals (RR) in their last match, whereas LSG suffered a loss against Gujarat Titans (GT). Abhishek Sharma played a significant role in Hyderabad’s win, scoring a brilliant 55 runs off just 34 balls. Rahul Tripathi and Glenn Phillips also contributed quickfire 47 and 25 runs in the run chase. On the other hand, despite Quinton de Kock’s 70 runs off 41 balls, LSG failed to chase the set target and lost to GT.
LSG currently are at the fifth place in the IPL 2023 points table and will aim to move up by defeating Hyderabad on Saturday. Meanwhile, SRH are placed on the ninth position and will look to not lose any match from hereon to stay alive in the playoffs race.
The Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium has a history of favouring batters. However, bowlers can also receive assistance from the surface if they bowl in the right areas. A high-scoring game is expected to take place at the venue.
