IPL 2024: Mayank Yadav misses out due to injury as LSG win toss, opt to field against KKR

Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh): Lucknow Super Giants skipper KL Rahul won the toss and elected to field against Kolkata Knight Riders in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 on Sunday at the Ekana Cricket Stadium.

LSG captain KL Rahul said after winning the toss, "We will bowl first. I'm not a best reader of a wicket, we just like chasing. The good thing is we have been able to adapt really well and quickly to the conditions, there have been quite a few briliiiant individual performances as well. There's been a lot of talk about strike-rate, and T20 cricket has changed a lot in the last couple of years. He was injured in the last game, Yash Thakur comes in for Mayank Yadav.."

There's a lot of self-belief in the team. We are going with the same team. Hopefully we continue with the same form. He has been optimistic from game one and just that he wasn't able to execute. He got tremendous and charater and happy for the way he executed. It's important to stay in the present."
