On May 7th, the IPL 2023 will feature an entertaining match between GT and LSG. Thanks to their seven victories in 10 games, the Titans have been the club to beat this season, and they currently sit atop the table with 14 points.
GT recently defeated Rajasthan Royals by a margin of nine wickets, with Rashid Khan, Noor Ahmad, and Hardik Pandya shining with the ball.
On the other hand, LSG was dealt a severe blow as their captain KL Rahul was forced to withdraw from the competition owing to injury. Karun Nair has been hired to take his place.
They have five victories in ten games, and with 11 points, they are now ranked second. However, rain caused their most recent game against Chennai Super Kings to be postponed.
A victory in this vital game will not only lift both teams’ spirits but also give them a good chance of making the playoffs. Who will win this eagerly awaited contest is still up in the air. Here are the top three captain picks for the GT vs LSG fantasy team:
Rashid Khan (GT)
Rashid Khan has established himself as a formidable opponent in the IPL throughout the years. He has taken 18 wickets in 10 games this season, with an economy rate of 8.55.
In the most recent game against Rajasthan Royals, he was also at his best, taking three wickets for only seven runs in four overs.
Rashid Khan is a great choice for the captaincy in the fantasy team due to his reliable performance and ability for taking wickets at vital moments.
Kyle Mayers (LSG)
Kyle Mayers, a West Indies all-rounder, has been one of the Gujarat Titans’ notable players in the IPL 2023. His excellent average of 37.12 has allowed him to score 297 runs in 9 games.
He is a great choice for the captaincy position on the fantasy team because of his capacity to produce rapid runs and help with the ball.
Hardik Pandya (GT)
Hardik Pandya, the captain of the Gujarat Titans, has been effective in IPL 2023 both with the bat and the ball. He has so far scored 252 runs for the Titans at an average of 36 and a strike rate of 127.91, making him the second-highest run scorer for the team.
In the most recent match, he scored his first 50 of the season against LSG. He would be a great choice for the captaincy of the fantasy squad due to his all-around skills.
