Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants will be locking horns in the fourth match of IPL 2022 on Monday, 28th March at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Gujarat Titans have a top-bowling unit, but their batting was dented by Jason Roy pulling out of the season due to bio-bubble fatigue. Their top-order batting would be heavily reliant on Shubman Gill, who himself has been inconsistent. The middle-order, with Wriddhiman Saha, Vijay Shankar, and Abhinav Manohar, has the talent but needs to hit more consistently.
The lower middle order of David Miller, Hardik Pandya, and Rahul Tewatia can destroy any bowling attack and add runs at the death. Their bowling has two world-class bowlers in Mohammed Shami and Rashid Khan, along with express pacer Lockie Ferguson and one of the best domestic talents, R Sai Kishore. Lucknow Super Giants have picked a well-balanced team on the whole. The batting line-up of the Lucknow Super Giants begins with two formidable openers in KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock, who need no introduction.
Manish Pandey at number three would have the freedom to play long innings, given the presence of a lot of attacking players in Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, and Krishnappa Gowtham down the order. Though the Lucknow Super Giants do not have any big name in their bowling line-up, they have a lot of bowling options with plenty of variety that can trouble the opposition. Hardik Pandya will be skippering a team for the first time in his IPL career as both the new franchises kick off their respective campaigns by facing each other.
