Srinagar: Former India opener Virender Sehwag has lashed out at Lucknow Super Giants’ (LSG) thinktank for leaving out South Africa star batter Quinton de Kock in the IPL 2023 Eliminator against Mumbai Indians.

The LSG stand-in skipper Krunal Pandya had said that South African batter was overlooked by the LSG think-tank for the crucial fixture as West Indies star Kyle Mayers opened the innings with Prerak Mankad.

“Even I have a good record in Chennai as I hit 319. But it doesn’t mean that even today I will go out there and score. Current form also matters and I feel Lucknow shot themselves in their own foot (by dropping De Kock),” Sehwag told Cricbuzz. 

Mayers, who is the second-highest run-getter for LSG this season, scored 379 runs for the Lucknow-based franchise in 13 matches. Former Mumbai Indians opener De Kock only featured in four matches for LSG this season. Averaging 35.75, the Proteas batter amassed 143 runs in 4 games. De Kock also slammed a half-century against defending champions Gujarat Titans.

Asked to chase down a challenging total of 183 in the 20-over contest, KL Rahul-less LSG side folded for 101 in 16.3 overs to lose the match by 81 runs at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
