Lucknow Super Giants are performing decently in the IPL 2023 as they are placed third in the points table with four wins in seven matches, managing a better net run rate than the likes of defending champs GT, RCB, and PBKS. Ahead of their Friday's game against Punjab, LSG made a lovely gesture by inviting Indian and UP wheelchair team members to their practice session.
LSG's official social media handles posted a video on Monday afternoon, where many prominent LSG members were seen playing cricket with notable team members of the U.P and India wheelchair cricket team. This special practice session was held at the LSG home ground i.e at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow.
