The in-form Gujarat Giants will lock horns with an underfire Manipal Tigers in the fifth match of the Legends League Cricket  2022 at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi on Thursday, September 2022. Both teams so far have had contrasting fortunes in the ongoing tournament. 

The Gujarat Giants are on a rampage and have been unstoppable so far having won both their games that they have played against India Capitals and the Manipal Tigers respectively. Giants currently occupy the top spot on the points table with four points to their credit and a superior net run rate of 0.886. They would be eager to keep their unbeaten run intact.

On the other hand, Tigers have been lacklustre in their opening two games having gone down to the Bhilwara Kings and the Gujarat Giants respectively. They currently find themselves languishing on the ladder with an unimpressive net run rate of -0.661 and now would be hoping for a revival in their fortunes from hereon as the tournament progresses.

Moreover, Manipal would be hoping to avenge their two-wicket loss that they suffered at the hands of Gujarat Giants in the last encounter.
