Gujarat Titans will take on Lucknow Super Giants in the 4th match of IPL 2022. Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai will host this fixture on March 28 at 7:30 pm. Both teams will be making their debut in this match of IPL and would be hoping to make an impact in their first match.
Both the teams have put together pretty solid squads, with highly impactful captains. KL Rahul will be leading the Lucknow Super Giants while Hardik Pandya will lead the Gujarat Titans. Notably, the leadership and on-field performance of both the captains will be tested throughout the tournament.
Shubman Gill will be the key batter for Gujarat in this season, but watch out for the Afghanistan sensation, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, who can smack the bowlers all around the park. Hardik Pandya’s presence in the middle order will be crucial. Rahul Tewatia and Rashid Khan can add value with the bat and also lead the spin department. Mohammad Shami and Lockie Ferguson will be leading the pace attack.
Meanwhile, Lucknow has a power-packed top three that is likely to include KL Rahul, Quinton de Kock, and Evin Lewis. Manish Pandey will also be hoping to capitalize on the start in this match. However, after that, the batting looks a bit fragile. Krunal Pandya’s role will be crucial.
Avesh Khan will hope to continue with where he left last season and will have Dushmantha Chameera with him. Ravi Bishnoi will be the key bowler for LSG leading the spin attack alongside Krishnappa Gowtham.
