IPL 2023: The LSG are one of the best passers included in this season of the Indian Premier League, i.e. IPL 2023. This foreign performer has made 11 wins in 5 matches so far and is on the sixth place in the list of the Purple Cap.
IPL 2023 has just reached its half-way and the Lucknow Super Giants may feel like a big blow. One of the best fastballers in the franchise can stay out of the final stage of the Indian Premier League. Mark Wood, leader of the fast-paced Super Giants, is set to become a father next month. Because of the birth of his child he can return to his home in the final stage of the tournament. This fast-paced right-hand ball has so far scored 11 wins in four matches from the Super Giants and ran at a rate of 8.12 runs per over during this time. He did not play in the last two matches of the team due to illness.
According to the news, “Mark Wood and his wife Sarah are about to become parents for the second time at the end of May. Mark Woods will return to the country at any time in the coming weeks to be present at the time of his second child’s birth.”
It is difficult for him to return to India for the IPL. In the IPL mega auction in 2022, Mark Wood’s LSG had bought in 7.50 crore.
The IPL qualifying will be played on 23 and 26 May, while the final will be held on 28 May. England has to play their only test match against Ireland in Lords from one June immediately after the IPL final. England’s test captain Ben Stokes has also said earlier that he could stay out of the final phase of the IPL to prepare for this match.
Super Giants will play their next match against Punjab Kings on April 28. Then on May 1 and 3 will be the back-to-back home matches against the Royal Challengers Bangalore and the Chennai Super Kings. In the absence of Mark Wood, he has chosen the Afghan Seamer, who has played the ball in his first two matches.
