Lucknow Super Giants are scheduled to play their second home game of the IPL 2023 season at the Ekana Cricket Stadium against Sunrisers Hyderabad on a Friday night. LSG will go into this fixture on the back of a hard-fought loss against CSK at Chepauk, while SRH were humbled at home by RR.
Even though the Lucknow batting unit has performed exceptionally well so far, the form of captain KL Rahul is a cause of concern for the team management. For Sunrisers Hyderabad, the arrival of Markram, Jansen, and Klaasen is a big plus, but their entire squad of players have to step up if they want to be competitive against their upcoming opponents.

The last time LSG and SRH faced each other, on that occasion, Hyderabad won the toss. So we might see that trend continue in their upcoming IPL 2023 fixture.
In the previous IPL season, LSG got the better of SRH in a close encounter that saw Jason Holder defend 15 runs in the last over by taking 3 wickets. Even though both Lucknow and Hyderabad come into this match on the back of defeats, they have a really good core of players in all departments to compete well against each other. Lucknow Super Giants will have the home advantage which could prove crucial to the outcome of this fixture against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Predicted powerplay score and Average first innings score
