Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) on Thursday (18th May) named 20-year-old Mumbai player Suryansh Shedge as a replacement for Jaydev Unadkat for the remainder of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. The right-hander has been roped in by the team for INR 20 lakh. 

Suryansh Shedge is expected to join the team ahead of LSG’s crucial game against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Saturday (20th May). The young batter hasn’t played a lot of domestic cricket and it’ll be the surprise package for most of the teams. In the 3 competitive games so far he has scored 37 runs.

The presence of Suryansh Sharma might fill up the void that LSG has been facing since the start of the tournament. The team is lacking a quality Indian batter in the middle and they have tried quite a few players in that position but they hadn’t quite joined the party.

Suryansh Shedge will join the team in the absence of Jaydev Unadkat, who suffered a shoulder injury in the nets. The pacer’s foot got stuck in the rope of the nets and he fell on his shoulder and was deemed unfit by the medical staff to take part in the further tournament. He played just 3 games in the IPL 2023. He failed to take a single wicket in the three games and had a slightly higher economy rate of 11.50.

KKR vs LSG: Lucknow Super Giants hot favorites to qualify for the playoffs 

Lucknow Super Giants are on the verge of qualifying for the playoffs. They have negated all the injury threats and have put them in a strong position. In the 13 games so far, they have won 7 games and have 15 points. They are currently placed third on the points table and their recent win over Mumbai Indians made their case strong. 

If Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 65th game of the IPL 2023, they will go through. If this doesn’t happen they then need to beat KKR. Even if they lose their last game they will be in contention.
