Preview

Match 57 of the 2022 TATA Indian Premier League brings us live action from the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune for the clash between the Lucknow Super Giants and the Gujarat Titans.

While both the Lucknow Super Giants and the Gujarat Titans are debutants in this year’s tournament, they both have been extremely impressive and have done exceptionally well. While the KL Rahul-led LSG are coming into this game off the back of a cruising victory over the Kolkata Knight Riders and will want to bring the same performance into this game, the Hardik Pandya-led GT are coming into the game off the back of a surprising defeat suffered at the hands of the bottom-placed Mumbai Indians. 

The LSG currently lie first in the table having played eleven games with eight wins and three defeats. They performed extremely well and managed to put up a good score of 176/7 in their 20 overs in their last outing. Quinton de Kock and Deepak Hooda starred for the LSG side with quick-fire runs added by them to the scoreboard, but the Lucknow bowlers were the real stars of the game. Brilliant bowling performances from Mohsin Khan, Avesh Khan and Jason Holder bowled out the strong batting side of the KKR for just 101 runs inside 14 overs. Lucknow will be looking to build on their form and hold on to their top spot. 

The Gujarat Titans, on the other hand, lie second in the table after eleven games played with eight wins and three defeats. They’re coming into this fixture off the back of a hard-fought game, which they ended up losing. Gujarat came close to chasing down the 177 runs put up by the Mumbai Indians but fell short by just 5 runs. They will be looking to win this fixture, as it will move them to the top of the table.

Head-to-Head

Matches played: 1 | Lucknow Super Giants: 0 | Gujarat Titans: 1

Batter to watch out for: Shubman Gill

Picking the batter to watch out for in this fixture is difficult with the likes of KL Rahul, Quinton de Kock, Hardik Pandya and Wriddhiman Saha on offer. That said, Shubman Gill is my pick for this game given his form and consistency. He will look to go big against the Super Giants. 

Bowler to watch out for: Mohsin Khan

Mohsin Khan was the star of the game for Lucknow in their previous fixture. Although he picked up just one wicket, he was exceptional with the ball and gave away just 6 runs in the 3 overs he bowled. Since he will be bowling on the same pitch again in this fixture, he has a better idea of the pitch and, thus, an edge over the other bowlers.

Fantasy XI

Shubman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha (vc), KL Rahul (c), Quinton de Kock, Deepka Hooda, Sai Sudharsan, Marcus Stoinis, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Mohsin Khan, Avesh Khan

Match Prediction

This is a tough call to make, given both teams are sitting at the top of the table. Lucknow are second only on the basis of their Net Run Rate. While Gujarat have the head-to-head advantage in this fixture, Lucknow have the advantage of having played their previous game at the same venue, a game that they won comfortably. I predict the Lucknow Super Giants to emerge victorious.
