Here’s the Reason why Mitchell Marsh is not playing Today’s IPL 2024 Match 26 Against Lucknow Super Giants

The upcoming IPL 2024 clash between the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and the Delhi Capitals (DC) promises to be a battle of contrasting fortunes. While LSG has been on a winning streak after their opening defeat, DC finds itself languishing at the bottom of the points table after a string of losses. Find out why Mitchell Marsh is missing from today’s IPL 2024 clash against LSG.

DC’s Injury Woes Worsen with Marsh Absence

DC’s struggles have been compounded by a growing injury list.  Their woes deepened with the news that Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh will miss the LSG encounter due to a hamstring injury sustained in their previous match against the Mumbai Indians (MI).  Marsh’s absence leaves a significant void in the DC lineup, as he failed to make a substantial impact in his first four appearances, scoring only 61 runs and picking up a solitary wicket.

Despite the setbacks, there was a glimmer of hope for DC at the toss.  Skipper Rishabh Pant confirmed the return of key bowlers Kuldeep Yadav and Mukesh Kumar, who were sidelined due to injuries.   “We would have batted first as well. A few of our players got injured, so need to find the right playing XI. We have two changes. Mukesh and Kuldeep are back. 

They were injured, looking forward to seeing them back on the field,” said Pant.  The return of these experienced bowlers could bolster DC’s bowling attack, which has been one of their weaker areas this season.

LSG Looks to Extend Winning Streak with Forced Change

Meanwhile, the Lucknow Super Giants will be aiming to extend their winning streak to four matches.  However, they will be without their young pace prodigy Mayank Yadav, who is ruled out due to injury.  Arshad Khan has been named as his replacement.

This match holds immense significance for both sides.  While LSG will be eyeing another convincing victory to solidify their position at the top of the table, DC is desperate for a win to avoid sinking further down the IPL 2024 standings.  Given DC’s current form and injury concerns, chasing down a target set by LSG at home seems like a daunting task.  However, they will be hoping for a turnaround in fortunes and a much-needed win to reignite their IPL campaign.
