Pitch Report and Weather Conditions

Narendra Modi Stadium has produced some very good pitches for batting in the ongoing season but there has been some significant help for bowlers in the last couple of games. The team batting first scored over 175 in each of the first four games while the previous game saw only 255 runs across two innings.

The weather in Ahmedabad is expected to be hazy on Sunday afternoon. There’s no rain threat for the match.

GT vs LSG – Match Predictions

Gujarat Titans have defeated LSG in all three encounters in the IPL. Titans have pretty solid resources in both batting and bowling departments. LSG, on the other hand, are struggling with their batting and are depleted after KL Rahul’s injury.

Probable 6s

LSG have hit 75 sixes compared to 59 by GT in 10 matches each. But Gujarat Titans have the likes of Hardik Pandya, David Miller, Vijay Shankar, Abhinav Manohar and Shubman Gill while LSG have been vulnerable against good bowling attacks.

Our prediction: Gujarat Titans to hit most sixes in the match at 11/20 (1.55).

Probable Wickets

Mohammed Shami has snared 18 wickets this season at a strike rate of 13. Back Shami to be Gujarat Titans’ top wicket-taker at 11/5 (3.20). Naveen-ul-Haq has been superb with seven wickets at 6.12 rpo. Bet on him to be the top bowler for  Lucknow Super Giants at 13/5 (3.60).

Our prediction: Mohammed Shami to be Gujarat Titans’ highest wicket-taker at 11/5 (3.20).

Man of the Match

Hardik Pandya has found his form back, smashing 39 off 15 in the previous game. He also picked a wicket in the previous game. Bet on Hardik to be the player of the match at 15/2 (8.50). Other top betting options include Shubman Gill, Mohammed Shami, Rashid Khan and Marcus Stoinis.

Our prediction: Hardik Pandya to be the Man of the Match at 15/2 (8.50).

GT vs LSG Preview

This contest is extremely crucial for LSG who are fighting for the playoffs spot with several challengers. Let’s take a look at the two teams ahead of their encounter on Sunday.

Gujarat Titans

Gujarat Titans are sitting at the top comfortably with 14 points, having won seven out of 10 matches with a net run-rate of 0.752. They hammered Rajasthan Royals by nine wickets away from home in the most recent fixture.

Josh Little has left for international duties and that means Alzarri Joseph is likely to come into the side. The rest of the side should remain unchanged.

Predicted XI: Shubman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Hardik Pandya (c), Vijay Shankar, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Alzarri Joseph, Mohit Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Noor Ahmad

Lucknow Super Giants

Lucknow Super Giants have 11 points to their name after 10 matches, with net run-rate reading 0.639. Their previous game ended in a no result due to rain and could even consider themselves lucky to take one point after posting 126 in 19.2 overs.

Ayush Badoni was magnificent in the previous game but where he will bat remains unclear. LSG had brought in Manan Vohra and Karan Sharma while Mohsin Khan has returned from injury.

Predicted XI: Kyle Mayers, Karan Sharma, Ayush Badoni, Marcus Stoinis, Krunal Pandya (c), Nicholas Pooran (wk), Krishnappa Gautham, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohsin Khan, Naveen-ul-Haq, Yash Thakur
