A relentless competition beckons to fans as Team Gujarat Titans (GT) take on Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday, May 7.
Both teams have enjoyed a good record in IPL 2023 so far and will be hoping to continue their winning streak to bolster their efforts to secure a place in the top four. While GT is currently at the top of the table with 14 points. After 10 games, the Super Giants are third with 11 points.
The defending champions will be filled with confidence after a strong victory over last year’s runners-up Rajasthan Royals (RR). After knocking them down with a score of 118, GT took only one stick to chase the target. Wriddhiman Saha (41*) and Hardik Pandya (39*) remained unbeaten to bring the team home.
On the other hand, LSG lost the final finishing match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Their match against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) was canceled due to inclement weather.
Going into the competition, Lucknow will want to bring in Quinton de Kock in place of Kyle Mayers, who has struggled to advance in the last few games. They will also be without the service of captain KL Rahul, who was ruled out of IPL 2023 due to injury. The almighty player Krunal Pandya will lead the team in Rahul’s absence.
