Lucknow Super Giants will play their first-ever IPL tournament this season alongside Gujarat Titans. Lucknow Super Giants have done decent business in the auction and will be hoping their players turn up during big games. 

However, this is their first tournament, so they will have slighter pressure on them. Although they have an experienced player who has already played for other teams, the onus will be on them to marshal the team. Lucknow Super Giants have a great squad, but their chances of making it to the playoffs look slim given the inexperience of the players on their side.
