Lucknow Super Giants Strengths and Weaknesses:


  • Lucknow has too many all-rounders in the squad and this will be a big boost for them. All-Rounders play a very important role in T20 games and they can really win games for any side. Looking at their all-around strength in form of Marcus Stoinis, Krunal Pandya, Deepak Hooda, and Jason Holder can really help the side for being consistent.
  • They really have an excellent opening pair in the form of KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock – Opening numbers are very important for any T20 side because they are the main key players to give a good start to their batting innings. And at this particular segment, they have a promising pair.


  • Lack of experience on the side – No doubt they have some good all-rounder in the middle but they lack experience. A player with a good amount of experience can win you some crucial league games and this is no secret. Lack of experience in the middle order might cost them very badly as the tournament progresses.
  • This is a very big concerning factor for the side – They are no major players to depend on in the spin bowling department. Especially on Indian tracks, spinners play a prominent role – Probably they have to produce one young talent in this department.

Lucknow Super Giants will look to start their maiden season on a positive note and if every player can play to their true potential then they can surely be the star side.
