The Super Giants stole the show in the last game, defeating the Rajasthan Royals. The Titans, on the other hand, are coming off a loss to the Royals and will be looking to rebound.
Last year, the Titans won both games against the Super Giants, giving them confidence. They have a potent bowling attack that has caused problems for opponents in most games. The Super Giants have struggled in the middle order, and it remains to be seen if they can deliver against a strong bowling attack from the Titans.

KL Rahul might have been overjoyed with his team’s performance in their last game, which they won by 10 runs. The fact that they successfully defended a low total against the batting powerhouse Rajasthan Royal will boost their confidence. Rahul is in good shape and would like to take the lead and build on it.
Kyle Mayers and Rahul are doing well at the top, with 400 runs between them, and the team is expecting a strong performance from the duo. Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, and Marcus Stoinis have struggled this season and must perform well in the middle order. Nicholas Pooran has been in blistering form and, along with Krunal Pandya, adds to the side’s firepower down the order.
Naveen-ul-Haq bowled brilliantly in the previous game and will be looking for early wickets with Yudhvir Singh. Avesh Khan and Stoinis will be buoyed by their strong performances in the previous game. Ravi Bishnoi and Amit Mishra bolster this attack, and the team will look to them for leadership.
KL Rahul (c), Ayush Badoni, Karan Sharma, Manan Vohra, Quinton de Kock, Marcus Stoinis, Krishnappa Gowtham, Deepak Hooda, Kyle Mayers, Krunal Pandya, Avesh Khan, Mohsin Khan, Mark Wood, Mayank Yadav, Ravi Bishnoi, Nicholas Pooran, Jaydev Unadkat, Yash Thakur, Romario Shepherd, Daniel Sams, Amit Mishra, Prerak Mankad, Swapnil Singh, Naveen-ul-Haq, Yudhvir Charak
Possible Playing XI:
KL Rahul (c), Kyle Mayers, Deepak Hooda, Marcus Stoinis, Krunal Pandya, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Ayush Badoni, Naveen-ul-Haq, Avesh Khan, Yudhvir Singh Charak, Ravi Bishnoi, Amit Mishra (Impact Player)
The form of Hardik Pandya’s team has dipped. They have lost two of their last three games, including a three-wicket defeat to the Rajasthan Royals. The defending champions will look to rebound here. Pandya will be aware of Lucknow’s strengths and will expect a strong performance from his players.
Wriddhiman Saha and Shubman Gill have performed admirably at the top, and the duo must get off to a strong start. Sai Sudharsan has filled the big shoes of the injured Kane Williamson, and he needs to add runs in the middle order with Pandya and David Miller. With only 21 runs, Rahul Tewatia’s lack of form is hurting the team, and he needs to add quick runs with Abhinav Manohar and Rashid Khan down the order.
Because LSG has a strong top order, Mohammad Shami and Hardik Pandya must deliver wickets early in the innings. Rashid Khan, who has 11 wickets but has lacked consistency, will be required to bowl tight spells as the side’s key bowler. Alzarri Joseph, Mohit Sharma, and Noor Ahmed form a formidable bowling attack.
Hardik Pandya (c), Shubman Gill, David Miller, Abhinav Manohar, Sai Sudharsan, Wriddhiman Saha, Matthew Wade, Rashid Khan, Rahul Tewatia, Vijay Shankar, Mohammed Shami, Alzarri Joseph, Yash Dayal, Pradeep Sangwan, Darshan Nalkande, Jayant Yadav, R. Sai Kishore, Noor Ahmad, Kane Williamson, Odean Smith, KS Bharat, Shivam Mavi, Urvil Patel, Joshua Little, Mohit Sharma
Possible Playing XI:
Hardik Pandya (c), Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill, Sai Sudharsan, Abhinav Manohar, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Alzarri Joseph, Mohammed Shami, Mohit Sharma, Noor Ahmed (Impact Player)

Last season, the Gujarat Titans defeated the Lucknow Super Giants on both occasions. Because this is a day game rather than a night game, dew may not be as important as it was in previous meetings.

Lucknow Super Giants vs Gujarat Titans Toss Prediction
The pitch has been slow in this location. It’s a midday game, so there won’t be much dew in the second inning. With the ball not coming onto the bat, it can be a difficult wicket to chase scores on, so the side winning the toss is likely to bat first.
Lucknow Super Giants vs Gujarat Titans Pitch Report
The Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Cricket Stadium in Lucknow is an ideal venue for batsmen who are deliberate in their stroke-making. At this venue, the ball stops and the spinners perform well. Because the straight boundaries are so long, batsmen must time their shots carefully at this venue.
The sky would be clear in Lucknow, making for ideal batting conditions. The pitch hasn’t been a batsman’s dream, as the ball has come to a halt on the surface. We anticipate another close contest between the bat and the ball, with a score of 175 runs acceptable to defend.
