As we enter into the business end of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, the competition will now become more intense. We can already witness a cut-throat battle going on in the mid-table mud as several teams are stuck on specific points.
In this IPL 2023 game, Gujarat Titans (GT) will be locking horns with Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). The match will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad and is slated to begin from 3:30 PM (IST).
Gujarat are presently in the 1st position and they have registered 7 wins in 10 games. On the other hand, Lucknow are in the 3rd position, with 5 wins, 4 losses and 1 No-Result (NR) in their 10 games so far.
In this article, we take a look at the top 3 vice-captain picks for the GT vs LSG game at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad:
1. Hardik Pandya (Gujarat Titans)
Flashy and flamboyant all-rounder Hardik Pandya is a no-brainer when we choose the captain/vice-captain for our fantasy team. The skipper of Gujarat Titans leads the team from the front and likes to take additional responsibilities for his team.
In the previous game of GT against Rajasthan Royals (RR), we witnessed the vintage Hardik Pandya as he smashed 39* runs in just 15 balls. He came in to bat at number 3 and was quite fluent with the willow.
As Pandya bowls as well and usually bowls with the new ball in the powerplay, he can be a formidable option for a vice-captain in your fantasy team.
2. Vijay Shankar (Gujarat Titans)
The resurgence of Vijay Shankar as an able all-rounder of Gujarat has been one of the best comebacks in this edition of the IPL. And much of his remarkable performances’ credit must go to the friendly team environment in Gujarat Titans.
Shankar has mustered 205 runs in 8 games and has a good average of 41.00. He is surely a good choice for a vice-captain in your fantasy team for this GT vs LSG game as he provides a lot of stability in the middle for Gujarat.
3. Ravi Bishnoi (Lucknow Super Giants)
In the last completed game of Lucknow versus Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Ravi Bishnoi bagged 2 wickets. His control and accuracy with his leg-breaks is remarkable to watch and he is also the leading wicket-taker of LSG in this season.
In 10 matches so far, Bishnoi has bagged 12 wickets and will be a key asset for Krunal Pandya’s LSG side in this IPL 2023 game.
