KL Rahul-led Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will take on Gujarat Titans (GT) in a top-of-table clash in the ongoing IPL 2022 on Tuesday. Here is all you need to know about the game.
KL Rahul-led Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will lock horns against Hardik Pandya's Gujarat Titans (GT) in a top of the table clash in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 on Tuesday (May 10). LSG surpassed Gujarat Titans to take the top spot on the points table with a huge win of 75 runs against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their last game.
While Rahul & Co. will be hoping to continue their winning run, Gujarat Titans will be aiming to bounce back after back-to-back defeats in their last two games. Gujarat Titans were enjoying a stellar run in the tournament and had lost just one out of their first nine matches this season.
However, a faltering middle-order and the failure of their bowling attack have seen them lose their last two matches on the trot. Both Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants currently have 16 points each and the winner of the game on Tuesday will become the first team to qualify for the playoffs this season.
Lucknow Super Giants had gotten off to a losing start this season and have struggled in a few matches but with a settled batting unit and an in-form pace attack, they are one of the favourites to become the first team to make it to the playoffs this year.
While skipper KL Rahul along with Quinton de Kock and Deepak Hooda has been fabulous in the top order, LSG have enough firepower in the middle order consisting of the likes of Marcus Stoinis, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya and Jason Holder. The pace attack of Mohsin Khan, Dushmantha Chameera and Avesh Khan has also been firing all cylinders.
