Lucknow Super Giants vs Gujarat Titans Match 57 – Tactics and Lineups

Lucknow Super Giants

Krunal Pandya hasn’t bowled much in LSG’s last two games after being named player of the match against Punjab Kings (2 for 11 from four overs). Given the presence of three left-handers in the GT middle order, LSG may attempt to employ him early in the innings. Meanwhile, Avesh Khan could be a viable choice against Shubman Gill, having surrendered only 25 runs off 28 balls bowled to the opener and dismissing him twice.

Predicted Lineup – Quinton de Kock (wk), KL Rahul (c), Deepak Hooda, Marcus Stoinis, Krunal Pandya, Ayush Badoni, Jason Holder, Dushmantha Chameera, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Mohsin Khan

Gujarat Titans

Rashid Khan has dismissed Rahul three times, with the batter having a strike rate of only 76.64 from 43 balls against the legspinner. GT might employ an over in the powerplay to neutralize Rahul’s threat. De Kock has a strike rate of 161.50 against Shami, but the bowler has also removed him three times.

Predicted Lineup – Shubman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Hardik Pandya (c), Sai Sudharsan, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Pradeep Sangwan/Yash Dayal, Alzarri Joseph, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami
