Two new IPL teams, Gujrat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants will be against each other in the fourth match of the IPL 2022 which is been scheduled to play on Monday, 28th March. Hardik Pandya will be playing his first game of IPL as captain after he was been chosen for this role by the franchise this year. It will be interesting to see him in the captaincy role as fans have already seen him in his prime all-rounder role, but not as a skipper. As the teams are new, they will take time to find out their best XI. Along with Hardik Pandya, two reserved players i.e. Shubman Gill and star spinner Rashid Khan can also be seen playing in the first game against LSG.
Predicted Gujrat Titans XI: Shubman Gill, Matthew Wade (wk), Abhinav Sadarangani, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Hardik Pandya (c), Vijay Shankar, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami.
Lucknow Super Giants, on the other side, are also playing with a new captain, KL Rahul who is a good friend of Hardik Pandya. KL Rahul, Ravi Bishnoi, and Marcus Stoinis are the reserved players of LSG. But, all-rounder Marcus Stoinis will not be available for this game. Some of their foreign players won’t be available as they are on international duties. Lucknow also roped in a South African opener in auction named Quinton de Kock, but he will also miss this game.
Predicted Lucknow Super Giants XI: KL Rahul (c) & (wk), Evin Lewis, Manish Pandey, Manan Vohra, Deepak Hooda, Krunal Panda, Krishnappa Gowtham, Dushmantha Chameera, Avesh Khan, Ravi Bishnoi, Ankit Rajpoot.
