Lucknow Super Giants had a kind of on-and-off season in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. They reached the playoffs but a disappointing performance in the eliminator against Mumbai Indians saw them getting knocked out of the tournament. They finished the league stage 3rd on the points table with 17 points under their belt.
3 Players LSG night release for next IPL season
It’s fair to say that injuries in the camp hampered their chances as they lost their star players mid way through the season. However, they would be hoping to go few more steps ahead next season and clinch their maiden trophy. But it’s fair to say that they might make some tough decisions ahead of the next year and release some players. Let’s take a look at the 2 Players LSG might release for the next IPL season
It might be hard to believe but Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) might release Deepak Hooda for the next season. The right-hander was the lynchpin of their batting lineup and piled up a huge amount of runs at the top last year. But this year it was a completely different story. He looked clueless in the middle and failed drastically. Hooda had a torrid season as in 12 games he managed just 84 runs. With the kind of young Indian players that they have on the side, LSG might end up releasing Deepak Hooda for next season.

Leg-spinner Amit Mishra played his part for Lucknow in the IPL 2023. He chipped in with wickets at crucial stages in a few matches. He wasn’t a part of the team in all the games and the reason behind that was his fitness. Mishra has gained a lot of weight and was unable to run in the field. This however might turn up against him next year and LSG might release him as well. The team already has quality spinners in the team and releasing Mishra won’t cost them much.
