11. Avesh Khan

These bowlers would not only be hoping to chip in with quick wickets at regular intervals but also keep the run rate in check which could help them in defending totals and make the job easier for their batters while chasing. Avesh Khan registered 2 scalps in last game.

10. Ravi Bishnoi

Ravi Bishnoi registered 2 scalps in last game. These bowlers would not only be hoping to chip in with quick wickets at regular intervals

9. Andrew Tye

The LSG bowlers were brilliant in the first game defending a 150+ target but, seemed to have lost their lines and lengths against Chennai as they conceded a total in excess of 200. Andrew Tye registered 2 scalps in last game 

8. Jason Holder 

Apart from providing timely breakthroughs with the ball in hand, Holder can also play match-defining knocks in the middle order. If selected, the tall all-rounder could replace Sri Lanka pacer Dushmantha Chameera. Chameera did pick up two wickets against GT, but, went wicketless against CSK.

7. Krunal Pandya

Krunal Pandya would also be expected to score at a brisk rate in the middle and death overs and provide handy breakthroughs with his left-arm spin. The southpaw has so far managed 21 runs and one wicket from two matches. He went wicketless in the last game and could not get a chance to bat as Badoni and Lewis got the job done chasing 211.

6. Ayush Badoni

Lucknow indeed have a strong middle-order on paper but, they have proved it right with some outstanding performances on the 22 yards in the last couple of games. Youngster Ayush Badoni and Deepak Hooda’s half-centuries helped LSG post a respectable score against Gujarat after they were reduced to 29/4.

5. Deepak Hooda

Hooda already has a fifty under his belt this season and many eyes will be on him.

4. Manish Pandey

Manish Pandey will be hoping to find form from hereon. The senior middle-order batter has only managed 11 runs from two games and he needs just one good innings which could do well for his self-confidence.

3. Evin Lewis

In the second game, they found a new hero in West Indies power-hitter Evin Lewis, who played a match-winning innings, scoring an unbeaten 55 runs off 23 deliveries.

2. Quinton de Kock (wk)

while De Kock scored a blistering 61 runs off 45 deliveries. More importantly, the duo was involved in a 99-run opening stand in a chase of 211. Both openers will yet again be expected to fire all cylinders as they take on a demoralized SRH bowling line-up who were unimpressive in their campaign opener against the Rajasthan Royals.

1. KL Rahul (c)

After both of them failed against Shami in the first game, the opening pair of skipper  KL Rahul and wicketkeeper-batter Quinton de Kock roared back to form with an excellent batting display against CSK in the next game. Rahul scored a 26-ball 40
