IPL 2023 Auction: 3 Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) Players Mumbai Indians (MI) Can Target.  Lucknow Super Giants were one of the two new franchises that made their debut in IPL 2022. The Lucknow-based franchise became the first one to represent Uttar Pradesh in the Indian Premier League. KL Rahul was named the captain of the team. The team management formed a stellar squad at the IPL 2022 mega auction.

As expected, LSG made it to the playoffs in their debut season, but they could not win the title. Lucknow finished third on the points table, meaning they had to play in the Eliminator match. Royal Challengers Bangalore knocked them out of the competition by defeating them in the Eliminator match. Lucknow Super Giants may release Indian batter Manish Pandey, Australian fast bowler Andrew Tye, and Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis because of his hefty price tag.

The IPL franchises have until November 15 to submit the list of retained and released players before the IPL 2023 mini-auction.

Mumbai Indians (MI) had an IPL 2022 season to forget and with only 4 wins from 14 matches, the Rohit Sharma-led side finished at the last spot in the points table. Since there was a mega auction this year, the franchise couldn’t retain the services of the majority of its players and brought in fresh faces.

The likes of Tymal Mills, Jaydev Unadkat, Mayank Markande, and Fabian Allen may be released by the franchise along with misfiring Kieron Pollard and IPL 2022’s biggest buy Ishan Kishan, though the last two may also be retained for IPL 2023.

It took one spectacular innings to thrust Manish Pandey into the limelight. A flamboyant right-hand top-order batsman, Manish Pandey scored an unbeaten 114 for the Royal Challengers Bangalore against the Deccan Chargers in IPL 2009. He became the first Indian to score a ton in the IPL.

33-year-old Manish Pandey had a terrible outing in IPL 2022, scoring only 88 runs in 6 games averaging 14.67 for Lucknow Super Giants and if released, he could be acquired by Mumbai Indians in IPL 2023.
