It’s a top-of-the-table clash in the IPL as Gujarat and Lucknow are proving to be consistent players. Yet, it is the Titans who have been much more regular with their performances. It could once again be the case with Gujarat bossing the early exchanges. I am backing Gujarat Titans to post the highest powerplay score.

Head to Head


There have been three matches between Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants so far with all three won by Gujarat. That included a tight seven-run win when the sides met in Lucknow earlier in the season.

Hardik Pandya’s 66 helped Gujarat post 135/6 which looked well under par when Lucknow were cruising at 106/1 after 14.2 overs. All hell broke loose later as the Super Giants fell short by seven runs. Noor Ahmad and Mohit Sharma took two wickets each.

Gujarat Titans Form


Gujarat are coming off a comprehensive nine-wicket win over Rajasthan Royals. They are top of the standings with 14 points from ten matches and have four wins from their last five matches.

Shubman Gill (375) and Hardik Pandya (252) remain their best batters as Mohammed Shami (18) leads the bowling attack along with Rashid Khan (18).

The Titans are picking up form at the right moment and are flying high. Along with the usual suspects, Noor Ahmad is doing his bit too by picking up at least two wickets in four of their last five matches.

Gujarat Titans Team News


The quick turnaround between matches could see Gujarat change their bowling attack, with Shami due for some rotation.

Lucknow Super Giants Form


Lucknow Super Giants have seen their match abandoned in Chennai last Wednesday keeping them on 11 points from ten matches. A loss here won’t be detrimental but with a number of teams on ten points, this could be a crucial fixture.

Kyle Mayers with 311 runs is Lucknow’s best batter while KL Rahul (274) has been their second-best, but is ruled out of the IPL. Ravi Bishnoi has been their best bowler with 12 wickets.

The Super Giants are struggling for consistency with no batters other than Mayers and Rahul showing the urge to remain at the crease.

Lucknow Super Giants Team News


Lucknow didn’t have a full game against Chennai and could probably use the same team in this match.

Verdict

Gujarat Titans are flying high and seem to be in the right direction to book their playoff spot. As for the Lucknow Super Giants, they have been up and down with their recent games and losing KL Rahul isn’t going to help them a bit. Although the anticipated introduction of Quinton de Kock is likely to give them firepower at the top, Gujarat’s powerplay bowling has been a revelation this season. I am backing Gujarat Titans to post the highest powerplay score of the match.
