Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will target another brilliant season in IPL 2024. The franchise reached the playoffs during the last two seasons. However, they lost the Eliminator match in both seasons and failed to reach the final.

In IPL 2024, LSG will aim to take one step closer and reach the final this time so that they can steal the trophy. KL Rahul is the skipper of Lucknow Super Giants. However, due to an injury, he missed half-of-the tournament last season.

LSG finished in the third spot in the points table after the league stage. Out of 14 matches, LSG won 8 games and lost 5. Their one match was washed out due to rain and ended with no result. LSG earned 17 points, equalling second-ranked Chennai Super Kings. However, LSG lost to Mumbai Indians in the Eliminator match and were eliminated from the final race.
